Play games at home or remotely with a Standard Nintendo Switch
Released worldwide on March 3rd, 2017 the Standard Nintendo Switch variant is still the variant to go for if you’re a player who craves the freedom to play on the TV or portably. It’s all thanks to this model’s two included Joy-Con controllers, which can be broken off at any time to suit however you wish to play. The Standard Nintendo Switch model is currently the only console out there that can do this, in effect working as a hybrid between traditional box and handheld device.
The Standard Nintendo Switch model has been upgraded and improved since it initially released, largely in the way of battery life to ensure that players can game on the go for longer periods of time. You can always tell an original Standard Nintendo Switch from this revised edition from the colour of the box – it’s the one coloured primarily in red that touts these enhanced features, and the SKU you should receive if picking up a brand-new, dockable Nintendo Switch. Furthermore, the price of this version of the Nintendo Switch dropped down to £259.99 back in September 2021.
The alternate option to the Standard Nintendo Switch is a smaller, marginally more affordable unit known as the Nintendo Switch Lite. This is geared towards players who only want to play their games solely in handheld mode. The Standard Nintendo Switch model offers modern players the flexibility to choose how they play, hence the higher price tag. But if you're after something with a better screen then the Nintendo Switch OLED that released back in October might be an option however, this console is slightly more expensive priced at £309.99.
