Single Status Update
A quick story:
When I got a DS, Nintendo announced the DSi about a month later.
When I got a 360 Elite, Microsoft announced the Slim a couple months later.
When I got a 3DS, Nintendo announced the New 3DS about a month later.
When I got an Xbox One, Micorsoft announced the X a few months later.
So when I finally buy a Switch...
Then a better Switch comes out...
That's why most of the time I either get them at launch or so far away that I could choose which model to get if there is another e.g. got a 360 Slim a couple of years back despite that the E was the latest version. Only times a different model got announced were when I got the PS3 Slim, the Super Slim came out and I think the Vita 2000 after I got the Vita. In those cases though, the model that I got was better than the other.
@Failinhearts Too bad the Wii U flopped too much to have a different model. In the same club as the Dreamcast/Gamecube/Xbox/N64 as in that they never got major redesigns and only slight changes at best (the Saturn is another since the upgraded model is hard to tell without looking at the buttons). Oh and crappier ports? Which games were they?
I'm honestly wondering on whether to get a Switch this year or next year because of this, honestly. I feel that Nintendo is probably going to unveil a revision next year--it usually takes two years before their handhelds get a hardware refresh and the original Switch is at this point somewhat notorious for several crucial design oversights (esp. with its security/hacking)--it really shows just how Nintendo rushed critical elements of the device in order to get it out the door.
It doesn't help that at the same time, I'm really sold on Mario Odyssey and Smash Ultimate, but I still have a handful of games on other systems I've been neglecting.
The most problematic is LEGO Dimensions on Wii U.
That version runs like hot garbage.
