Forums - Nintendo Discussion - So, anyone here pick up the Switch OLED?

For me, the price is insignificant compared to the amount of time I play the Switch. I am a fairly dedicated Switch gamer, who will play anywhere from 500 to over 1000 hours per year. The few hundred to increase the quality of the experience is more than justified.

My old Switch will be a hand-me-down :D



I describe myself as a little dose of toxic masculinity.

I was going to upgrade my V1 to an OLED but they are completely sold out in my area.

I called Gamestop and was told that it is sold out nationwide. Havent checked other retailers yet.

Think how good your porn games will look on it. ;)

There are porn games on Switch?

Hardcore porn no, not that I'm aware of. Softcore porn? Many.



Bet with Liquidlaser: I say PS5 and Xbox Series will sell more than 56 million combined by the end of 2023.

I'm on the fence.

I saw the DF Metroid review and it looks fantastic (they even showed Doom on it lol).

The reason I am on the fence is that in recent iterations of OLED on my samsung phones have suffered from screen burn. Not sure I could handle that on my gaming console lol. So not sure if technology got cheaper and shittier to produce or I have just been unlucky



 

 

It looks great. If I for some reason needed a new Switch, like if my current Switch broke, I'd for sure get the OLED model. But no reason for me to buy a second version of a system I already have.

Just bought my Switch OLED with Metroid Dread. :)
It's the best revision for sure, but it is worth only if do not already have a Switch, you have an old bricked one or absolutely love portable gaming.

Yeah it's definitely the best looking system Nintendo have ever made in my opinion, very sleek and cool and premium looking.

Very tempted, especially as I've started playing my Switch Table top mode more frequently as of late. Before it was 99% TV... Now like 80% TV , 20% Table Top.

Will see how I'm feeling about it this winter. Originally was planning to get an Xbox Series X but I feel like it won't come into its own until late 2022, so I might wait til then. Equally I still want to feel out whether there is another Nintendo system arriving in the next 18months.



Feels completely pointless to me. Unless our current Switch breaks at some point I don't really see any reason to get the new version, especially when I have literally not played a single minute of the thing in handheld mode.
