Do these reviews prove Nintendo Switch OLED is worth buying?
The reviews for the new Nintendo Switch OLED are in and they are . . . mixed to say the least. The new Nintendo Switch OLED was launched today after its announcement in July, but the reviews for the new Nintendo Switch are already turning out to be harder to split than a stuck JoyCon.
The reviews for the new Nintendo Switch debate whether the system is a waste of money, as the “improvements” made by the product seem minor to some but are a welcome change to others. Others argue that the system is way too pricey while others are fine throwing more money at Nintendo.
Naturally, these mixed reviews for the new Nintendo Switch OLED are all over Twitter. We played through the threads to find more information and the best reviews for the new Nintendo Switch. Power up your console as we dive into these reviews of the new Nintendo Switch OLED.
New & improved
The new Nintendo Switch OLED is currently being sold on Amazon, Walmart, Target, and Best Buy, with prices ranging from $349, which is more than even the original Switch, which was sold at $299.
According to Nintendo, the console’s improvements include the same convenient carrying size with upgrades to the kickstand, a wired LAN port to steady online play, a bigger 64-gigabyte internal storage capacity, and the biggest sell: the vibrant 7-inch OLED screen.
Even with these small improvements, many are not convinced to make the purchase despite others continuing to hype up the new product. Some fans see the new console as a waste of money while others are excited to finally get their hands on a Switch, which still continues to be ultra popular even as life post-pandemic continues.
prediction: nintendo will announce a new switch model with better graphics and cpu at the beginning of 2022 once the oled has stopped selling just to piss you off

Aka many people’s faces when the announcement first came out
I was getting the #NintendoSwitchOLED but it’s sold out everywhere I thought Nintendo fans don’t want it because “it’s the same switch” I guess they just can’t make up their own mind oh well
