Forums - Nintendo Discussion - Switch OLED model just got announced.

If internal specs are better will upgrade, if not will not. $399 for an OLED screen (as nice as it is) and better stand is too much imo.

EDIT: Misread, it is $350 not $400.

Just like Nintendo to make a major hardware announcement after E3

What major? That looked more than average yet below average.

Nintendo did the right step to not make a screaming for this kind of announcement. They just announced an average upgrade randomly (which is the way it deserved to be announced).



It looks really sleek! And that colour scheme looks really good together with Metroid Dread :)
And honestly happy that it seems to have the same hardware specs and to be fully backwards compatible. My biggest fear with all these Switch Pro rumours was being "forced" to double dip in order to play upcoming games.

Will it be $399?

Disaster of a trailer.
Slightly bigger screen.
Bigger stand (That I'm shocked anyone actually ever uses).
Better Audio
And Ethernet port.

That's it. No comparisons. No resolution. No performance.

Was I suppose to be impressed by the random games they showed? Did they look different? Without a before and after I can't actually tell if the games look any better.

Is it on Nintendo though? Publications and insiders hyped up a Pro model and we ate it. 



Nice name, the Switch OLE!

According to IGN - "– features a larger 7-inch OLED screen, a wider, adjustable base stand, enhanced audio, 64GB of internal storage, and a wired LAN port in the dock. Contrary to previous reports, the new model doesn't appear to offer 4K TV output, or improve performance."

So pretty much the biggest change is bigger screen and OLED. I guess great for those that don't have the OG Switch but I doubt many that have the OG would really need to upgrade to this.

Nintendo's going to save the 'pro' features for Switch 2.  Nintendo doesn't need to do much this gen.

Nintendo has been know to leave some pretty important information out of announcements before. But I can't see the value yet in his new offering. Clearly this is more meant for new customers than existing. 

I was hoping for a decent power upgrade with this model, but guess we might have to wait a little longer or maybe to next gen.

50 extra dollars for a brighter screen? LMFAOOOOOOO
