Nintendo Switch OLED
We weren’t expecting Nintendo to light up a little brighter this week, but a new version of the Nintendo Switch has been introduced. In this instalment of our weekly review, find out what she looks like and what else happened this week.
The Nintendo Switch OLED variant has been unveiled.
We theorised, predicted, and waited for Nintendo to drop the bomb for a long time. It’s finally happened: a fresh Nintendo Switch is on the way. The dock now has a 7-inch OLED display, a bigger kickstand, and a LAN connection. Nintendo has subsequently verified that nothing has changed on the switch’s Nvidia Tegra processor.
That implies we shouldn’t anticipate resolutions higher than 1080p, nor should we expect gains in performance in games that are currently jerky.Also, the design of the Joy-Cons hasn’t altered, so you’ll still have to deal with some drift after a few intense games.
Buyers, on the other hand, may expect doubled internal memory. Instead of 32 GB, there are now 64 GB built in before you have to transfer data to an attached microSD card. Furthermore, it is said that the speakers have been upgraded. As a result, this is not yet a pro version.
At the very least, experts advise against dismissing a Pro edition with 4K capability just yet. After four years, the switch is still selling like hotcakes, but the present chip scarcity leaves little opportunity for new hardware.So it’s very feasible that Nintendo may wait this one out and delay a Pro model until next year… and then offer a package with the Breath of the Wild sequel?
The OLED switch will be available on October 8th. The first vendors in Germany are already selling them for $500 USD. Which hasn’t been that small in years: according to newzoo, smartphone games alone are estimated to earn 79 billion US dollars in sales this year, accounting for 45 percent of total games industry revenues.
And it doesn’t even include the $11.6 billion in tablet sales. Sales of PC and console games even declined compared to the previous year.The reason for this might possibly be hardware: why should I buy the new “Ratchet and Clank” if the new consoles are still hard to come by? The Nintendo Switch Pro may be released without portable capability.
