Of course, if they announce a special edition Zelda / Metroid / Arceus OLED version all this "I'll pass" gets thrown out the window and the stock notification bots are coming out!  :bomb:

Has anybody gone into GameStop yet and see if they are taking preorders in store yet?

So essentially this is the Switch V3... but the price increased by $50.

Well of course I'm not working at my desk today so I will likely miss out on pre orders. Not 100% sure I need this anyways.

This is a let down but good if you don't already have a Switch. I'll keep my Switch OG in the meantime since there isn't much of a upgrade here.

No 4K... so essentially zero benefit if you keep it docked. Thanks Nintendo I guess?

Often times these new type revisions don't get preorders, and are first come, first served, and since this isn't a "Pro" like most hoped, it should be pretty easy to get.

Not for me.  Still an easy pass.  Never cared for special editions or collectors editions.  IMHO, these are all just marketing gimmicks for creating FOMO and artificial supply/demand to prey on the whales.  Of course, for them, have had it!

Scroll down and it clearly says that local retailers will have pre-order information soon. Hopefully soon is today

The more I think about it, the more this should have been the V2 Switch but I think they rushed that one out to replace all the hackable Switches out there.

I think the new 3DS didn't sell out like that at/few months after launch? The new 3DS probably had more upgrade to og 3DS than this to the og switch.

Yeah, even when the Switch Lite came out, it wasn't to hard to find(or the NEW model NS), only once the pandemic panic buying started, did all models fly off the shelves. Offering preorders now would be good to gauge demand, but I'm sure they'll be producing all they can, because they will sell eventually, especially if the economy is raging by holidays 2021. As stated, if this had a themed unit, it would be a different matter all together I'm sure.

Hard to find or not, the NS is still selling like crazy... I feel like Nintendo is trying to capitalize on the PS5/SX stock shortages to get a "new" console out to market before the holidays with a buzzword upgrade ("OLED") because they know it'll be easy sales.

Can’t wait for the Switch V2 holiday bundle with Mario kart at $299.

Might as well buy that Animal Crossing Switch up at my local Walmart.

Thankful it's so similar to the Switch so I don't have the urge to upgrade.

I'm not buying another Switch until its upgraded to 4k and maybe more powerful. With the way Nintendo is going, that just might be their next gen system by them since they don't want to upgrade the Switch in a serious way.

As bad as that is, it's better than the way MS went with naming their xbox systems after the original.

I would hope they would go the Sony route and just name it Nintendo Switch 2 (of course they won't).  Let the Switch brand live on from here forward.

I thought the price was going to be a lot higher than $349. I'm on the fence of preordering, since I mostly play docked but that new screen does look nice.

Well no reason for me to upgrade, since I play docked 99% of the time. I guess the built in ethernet (finally) is nice, but I already have an adapter for my Switch, so whatever.

Easy pass for me. Give me a dock only, non portable Switch with more power (something like the Vita TV). I don't play games handheld or when I'm away from home. So I would rather play my first party Nintendo games with better resolution & performance on my TV. Here's hoping when they release their current gen machine that's an option. It's Nintendo so that will stay a pipe dream.

Thank goodness the Switch finally caught up with the PS Vita by adding an OLED screen. Hard pass since I play docked.

I think I am going to wait until Black Friday to see what deals are available for the old one before buying the new one.

I think you can blame the lameness on a chip shortage. Nintendo didn’t announce this at e3 likely because they were still sorting things out or they new it’s lameness would kill their amazingly hyped up e3 (the software was pretty great).

Wouldn’t shock me if they did a more powerful update with new bodies next year.
