Nope, I only use mine docked. And even if I did use it as a handheld, I don't think the upgrades are worth enough for me to buy a whole new machine. I actually never bought any updates or revisions of any console, come to think of it.

Yes. Will give my launch model to my gf

Same here.  I've been holding off getting a 2nd Switch and giving the launch model to my wife in the hopes that the Pro rumors were true.  But since there is no Pro on the horizon now, I'll get the OLED instead.  Even though I use the Switch primarily in docked mode, I do take it to work with me and use it on lunchbreak and other times away from home as well.  So the better screen quality will be worth it for me.

That is pretty much the exact reason I'm getting one also. I also play my switch handheld while I watch sports



No, the only thing that might entice me is the ethernet port but even then I don't think being on a wired connection would improve Smash's online by much.



Signature goes here!

Well, at least they add ports rather than take them away!



No since it's too weak for my liking.

For the bonus I've seen it be suggested that the insiders might've conflated the OLED model with the Switch 2 which would make sense since they basically got every detail right aside from the power increase and DLSS so I doubt those aspects were just made up.

I want one, but unsure because my main launch Switch never leaves the dock. I do 95% of mobile gaming on the Lite.

No, My Switch never leaves the dock so this does nothing for me.

My wife and I share our Switch, but I exclusively play games on it docked (Mario games, Zelda, Marvel Ultimate Alliance 3 ... Metroid Prime 4 some day in the distance future lol) and she almost exclusively plays it portable (Animal Crossing: New Horizons and Luigi's Mansion 3 multiplayer). So, yeah, I am going to continue to wait until the mythical New Switch/Switch Pro is released, so that we are both gaining something out of it.



It's been less than a week I think since the announcement? That means I can still celebrate the announcement right? Seriously, the fact that they are releasing such a small increase in features on their next iteration, and the fact that it doesn't have a "New" or "XL" or "Pro" tells me that Nintendo is serious about ending the Switch life and moving unto Switch 2 in 2023 (hopefully March, 6 years later). OLED Switch is very much in line with what their previous final iterations did on older devices, so we should also expect Switch 2 to come out after the typical window (which is roughly 2 years after final iteration of any device). If we got what so many wanted (some 4k Pro, a way more powerful upgrade than Nintendo normally would do), we'd all be ticked off that in 2023 and probably 2024 we are all playing on mostly 2017 technology. Let their "pro" be a slight upgrade for new buyers and the people that always want the best of the best so that we can ALL get a PROPER next gen Nintendo device in 2023 and not 1 or 2 years after.

There is no way Nintendo would have made the Pro so many wanted and not kept it out for 3-4 years as the way to play its games. It would have been way too expensive to build, and all the developers taking advantage of its tech would have not made enough sales off of the limited amount of Switch Pros that would have sold had it only been on the market for 2 years. We'd all be miserable in 2 years time if some of you got what you wanted. Forget the Switch Pro, all about the Switch 2!

I'd like to know more about this typical window. Should be as entertaining as your story about the GC not being a big technological leap over the N64.



Legend11 correctly predicted that GTA IV (360+PS3) would outsell SSBB. I was wrong.

Not getting it. Doesn't change or improve how I play Switch games currently. - That and I don't feel like having to get rid of all my current accessories as well. (Battery life extender, cases and so on.)
