Says blue on the box. That suits me.
Nintendo has revealed a brand new color variant of its Switch Lite hardware and - just minutes later - some corners of social media are already ready to draw swords to find out if it really is the color that its manufacturer claims to be.
Earlier this morning, Nintendo tweeted images of its all-new “blue” Nintendo Switch Lite, which will launch on May 25 at a retail price of $199,99. But it seems the internet is less concerned with its price and release date and more focused on whether the new console is - in fact - blue, as many gamers in the gaming community are convinced that the new material is clearly purple.
Yes, folks, it's one of those "What color do you see?" » offers. Much like "The Dress" in 2022, people a little furious over the pigment itself splashed Nintendo's new baby. Guess I'm adding to the WaCkiNeS by writing about this myself. Still, it's been a terrible morning and my spirit is shot, so you'll all have to give me this one. After all, this is new material, and I have to point that out, right?
So what color do you see? I don't see "blue" in the common sense of color, but I definitely see more blue than purple. I guess it's more of a kind of Lapis blue... Azure at best. But I still think it veers more to the blue side of the spectrum than the purple side. What do you think of this, the most important question facing our civilization this hour?
This is what I have become. The horror.
