My Thoughts On The Nintendo Switch OLED!

Nintendo recently announced a new version of its Switch line. This post isn’t going to be an in-depth technical post; I’m not even going to pretend I understand specs!
I own the Switch Lite, so this piece will discuss how I feel about the size of this new Switch console, its unique features, and how I’d consider adding it to my collection!

I like the look of the new screen. As a person with a visual impairment, it’ll make a difference to my eyes if I use it in handheld mode.
Its new backlighting will also be easier on my eyes. I struggle with the lighting on the Switch Lite sometimes because of its screen lighting.

Having the option to connect it to an Ethernet cable is also a big selling point for me. Nintendo’s online services can feel unstable, I’ve had struggles with them in the past, so this new feature has me really wanting to get more online games to play.
Since the lockdown, I haven’t been able to play Smash Bros or Mario Kart with my friends; we play these games in person. Now I could play with them online until we can play in person again.

The lack of 4K isn’t a dealbreaker for me. I’ve played Switch games in the docked mode in the past on the native system, and the games look fine visually. As they do on the Lite.
When it comes to Nintendo systems, I usually play their exclusive titles and the occasional third-party game. I own other games consoles, so I tend to third-party games for those.

I think this console will be worth the investment for those who don’t own a Nintendo Switch or own the Lite and want to play on their TV.

Articles I’ve read mention that the OLED has improvements. Still, the lack of 4K doesn’t seem like it would be appealing to those who already own the original Switch models.

It gives me similar vibes to the PlayStation 4 Slim and Xbox Series S consoles. While they have minor improvements, I only bought my PS4 slim because my launch PS4 console broke beyond repair.

What are your thoughts on the OLED?

  1. My thoughts were the same. If you own a Switch Lite or don’t own a Switch at all, it’s a good buy. I have a regular Switch and won’t be upgrading. I do hope in the future they improve the specs because some games tend to struggle on the system.
