Should I buy a Nintendo Switch OLED? Journalists tried to give an answer in the first reviews of the updated system
October 6, review of Nintendo Switch with an OLED display is allowed. In addition to admiring the bright and contrasting screen, journalists answered the question: is it worth buying a system for players who have never had a Switch, and also switching to it for the owners of the original console?
It is unknown when Nintendo will introduce the next-generation Switch, but until then, the OLED model is the best way to enjoy the excellent library of games of this system, according to Digital Foundry.
Eurogamer notes that if the player does not have a Switch and there is a desire to purchase it, then it is worth buying a new model. Moreover, the owners of the old revision, for whom the image quality in portable mode is important, the transition to the new system is strictly mandatory.
NintendoLife also advises owners of the original 2017 console to take a closer look at the new model, especially those who complain about low battery life and a fragile case. The authors of the article suggest that Nintendo will not replenish stocks of old systems after the release of the model with an OLED display, making the new system market-leading, as the company did with the New 3DS and New 2DS a few years ago.
Journalists call the Switch with an OLED display a worthy continuation of the line. However, the absence of at least some performance gain means that users playing in stationary mode will not see any advantages in the system. They can stay on the old model.
Polygon employees believe that the Switch has received the biggest update since the release of the original model. But not large enough to recommend an OLED system to everyone. Most people should not give up their old console in favor of a new device. But for those who have never owned a Switch and are wondering whether it's worth spending an extra $ 50 for a model with an OLED display, journalists give an unequivocal answer - it's worth it.
