The new Nintendo Switch 2019 looks exactly the same as the Nintendo Switch release in 2017.
The Nintendo Switch 2019 still doesn’t support 4K or 8K, just like the Sony and Microsoft consoles. The Switch 2019 can only do 1080p when on a TV and 1280 x 720p on the little display. Upgrade from the old Switch, the new Switch has a brighter screen and provide a better range of color.
With the new Switch, it has added a new chip layout and a revised Tegra X1 processor that allowed better performance for battery life and with Nintendo finally allowing third-party publishers to release their games on the Nintendo eShop, this addition battery life is going to be well spent to this new games.
“This is my review of the ‘V2’ (2019) version of the Nintendo Switch (model #HAC-001(-01)).
So a little background, I was an enthusiastic PC gamer in college who built my own PCs for the purpose and am now – due to the demands of adulthood – someone who only plays the occasional game. My last handheld Nintendo console was the black and white Game Boy Pocket in the early ’90s, so I’ve been away from the platform —- a while.
I bought the Switch purely because I learned they had ported Skyrim to it, and as a huge fan of the Elder Scrolls genre I was hoping to devote some of my train commutes to questing around Tamriel. In this sense, the Switch does not disappoint. I am not a graphics connoisseur, but – compared to the PC version – Skryim plays really well on the Switch. No perceptible lag, colors are crisp. Yes, it’s missing the expansions and yes, the text can be a little small, but that’s a fair trade-off for the portability this platform brings.
So far, I only own 2 games – Skyrim and MarioKart 8 (another throwback to my college dorm days on the N64), and I love playing both on the Switch, MaroKart is obviously the newer game and so the graphics and gameplay are much better but I’m a still a sucker for Skyrim (at least until the next ES is released, hopefully in my lifetime).
Anyway, all this to say the Nintendo Switch is a great console for busy adults who want to reminisce about the fun they had 10, 20, or even 30 years ago. The Switch doesn’t take itself too seriously (which I love) but that means it might not be the right choice for people concerned with the perfect graphic or gameplay experience – there are dedicated consoles that do this much better. What the Switch does is make gaming on the go effortless, fun for the average busy person and something you can really enjoy with your whole family – which I think was Nintendo’s real goal here all along.” – user Sherlockian with a 5-star rating on Amazon
“Everything about the physical device, I feel like is pretty well made. Good set up, some minor future issues that are mitigated by screen protectors and similar. Several easy to work with ways to play it, kinda fun in its novelties on its build.
1) games are ridiculously expensive. So many are overpriced.
2) Online play required by Nintendo for a not good service is poor. Especially for things like minecraft.
3) Where are any older games. The games that Nintendo has no need to keep out of the store. The old Pokemon, Zelda games, or any games really. Like, great you are putting witcher 3 on there…But not Orignal Zelda and Ocherina of time?
Physical? Great! Nintendo online and games? Bad. 1 or 2 games does not make the switch worth buying. PC has better prices, easier to work with, and you can play almost any game out there.” – user DWbelfils with a 2-star rating on Amazon
