Summary

On the surface, the OLED makes no sense if you already have a Nintendo Switch. Il be honest I thought that when it first got announced, I gave the Vita the same miss when that OLED came out but things have changed since then. OLED is honestly one of the best visual treats you can give your eyes and games. Any game looks crisper sharper than before and colors just simply pop out of the screen. The whole OLED part isn’t the only addition that makes the new Nintendo Switch a must-buy. You get 64GB internal memory, Bluetooth audio ready to go, the Dock has a LAN socket, plus you get new Joycons that are definitely tighter than before, and alright they don’t eliminate the drift issue but it goes some way to help. I really fell for the OLED switch because it’s everything I like about my old Switch but with so much more. Games look better, perform better, and are generally overall a big step up and to me it’s a more justifiable purchase than the Lite was way back then. Keep an eye out as more Nintendo Switch OLED content is gonna drop soon.

Gaming since the Atari 2600, I enjoy the weirdness in games counting Densha De Go and RC De Go as my favourite titles of all time. I prefer gaming of old where buying games from a shop was a thing, Being social in person was a thing. Join me as I attempt to adapt to this new digital age!
