My first guess is there will be a portable only one and a more power TV only one

You literally have a WSJ account and I literally don't then, I have read other articles that, again literally, didn't say that. That link, not unfiguratively, requires you to login to read it

i don't have a WSJ account, i just read the second comment on the tweet that had the article quoted. here ya go:

One version will have enhanced features targeted at avid videogamers, although it won't be as powerful as Sony Corp.'s PlayStation 4 Pro or Microsoft Corp.'s Xbox One X, according to parts suppliers and software developers for Nintendo who have early access to a prototype of the machine.

The other version is a cheaper option for casual gamers that Nintendo sees as a successor to its aging hand-held 3DS device, the suppliers and developers say.

The name 'Switch' would, literally, not make sense if they made a TV only or portable only version

I'm not sure what would make me buy a new one yet. Probably when they start announcing games that only work on it

i used to play mine 60% docked, 40% handheld, but now i'm probably like 95% handheld. which is to say that i don't think i'd be excited about a more powerful one, necessarily, or a handheld-only one.

The more powerful one would still be more powerful handheld.

I don't feel the need for an upgrade personally, unless Gamestop offers some good trade-in value. But if Metroid Prime looks better when it comes out I'll upgrade.

I'm not going to put any money on a TV-only one, or anything, I'm just shooting the shit with the bit where they say both of these things are different than just different/more tech in the same body.

Yeah I don't know what that means, probably some new gimmick

Remove detachable joycons and you reduce the price quite a lot on the cheaper model, though. There's no reason not to have it be able to dock.

from what little I've read I'm kinda intrigued by the idea of a more powerful switch as a mid generation stop gap. the way I understand it is because so many current games are utilizing tech like adaptive resolution etc. upgrading to more powerful hardware could mean that the games you already own could run/look better almost automatically

I don't mind paying $50 for X and X-2 together, I never played them

I would probably wait for XII to fall to $30 or something before running through it again

I've never played a ff except the snes one which I hated and generally I’m turned off by random encounters + turn-based combat, but the characters and worldbuilding from what I've seen seem pretty cool. which one should I get

If there is a TV only one, a handeld one and a both one, it only takes a marketing team to make it all relevent to switching
