DS sales will dramatically pull ahead when DS Lite hardware numbers are taken into account

Maybe Nintendo Switch should make a Switch Lite, a smaller and cheaper Switch. I'd rather have that than this one. It feels a little too big and awkward sometimes. My New 3DS XL and PSVita are of comfortable sizes. They are much easier to carry for sure.

I am hoping for a switch lite as well but I actually find the Vita and new 3DS both very uncomfortable for prolonged gaming... (The 2DS is a huge improvement IMHO)

Nintendo landed on a goldmine with the Switch. It is innovations like this, plus some the best quality games available today, that made Nintendo Switch one of the most successful consoles ever made.

That said, it is past due for a GameCube Virtual Console.
