The new Nintendo Switch OLED is still quite a way off its October 8 release date, but I’ve been able to get some advanced hands-on testing with the newly-announced console. Naturally, I was super keen to measure it against the original 2017 Switch and see if it’s worth the upgrade.
As you might have heard by now, especially if you’ve seen our Nintendo Switch OLED vs Nintendo Switch feature, this is not the long-rumored 4K Nintendo Switch Pro everyone was expecting. In fact, Nintendo has recently denied it is working on another Switch revision – but then again, I wouldn’t expect it to admit otherwise, because then who would buy a Nintendo Switch OLED? It’s a good question, and one I was certainly asking myself before my hands-on session. The thing is, even after playing with one myself, I’m still not entirely sure what the answer is.
