Should You Buy The Nintendo Switch OLED?



Since the Nintendo Switch OLED became available yesterday on October 8, the question is “Is it worth buying?” OLED (organic light-emitting diode) is usually in the latest smartphones and televisions. Take one glance at the Nintendo Switch OLED and it is not much of a difference. It does have a stylish, white colorway. The volume and power buttons are clearly thinner and the vents are refined. After making a comparison, one thing you will notice is the Nintendo Switch OLED is slightly heavier than the original version, but the size is practically identical. 

For how long you may be playing the Nintendo Switch OLED, maybe you will encounter back problems and/or joint problems. There are exercises specifically for gamers to alleviate the pain  and strengthen your muscles. Cut calories by playing the discontinued Wii or play a Dance Dance Revolution arcade machine, but an obvious solution would be to no longer hog the video games. You would not just let the latest video game stay out of your grips, would you?

Nintendo Switch - OLED Model - Announcement Trailer


As always, there are complaints and the newest Nintendo Switch being the most expensive, is not the biggest one. This time, the complaints are from gamers claiming the Nintendo Switch OLED lacks software improvements. That must mean that the only beneficial feature of the Nintendo Switch OLED is the OLED? That is not necessarily true, because it does come with the Joy-Con controllers, giving you a total gameplay flexibility. 

If you would prefer a 7-inch OLED screen and three modes in one (transforming from a home console, to a portable system), this is for you. There is a TV mode, a Tabletop mode, and a Handheld mode. Although the new model is the best Nintendo Switch so far, everyone will not care. It is undoubtedly a device that game collectors should put on their list, but some gamers just prefer the original version.

Basically, if you lack a Nintendo Switch device, there is no reason not to get the Nintendo Switch OLED, but if you already have a Nintendo Switch, you have to decide on how much you love the Nintendo Switch.

Nintendo Switch With 4K Support: 

There was buzz across the internet about how Nintendo Switch supplying 4K Nintendo Switch development units to studios, but it was too good to be true. On Nintendo’s Twitter account, it reads, “A news report on Sept. 30, 2021 (JST) falsely claims that Nintendo is supplying tools to drive game development for a Nintendo Switch with 4K support. To ensure correct understanding among our investors and customers, we want to clarify that this report is not true. We also want to restate that, as we announced in July, we have no plans for any new model other than Nintendo Switch – OLED Model, which will launch on October 8, 2021.”
