Nintendo Switch OLED Re-stock Thread

My wife bought a 3D printed clip for the Switch and Pro Controller a long while ago. Looks like it still fits the OLED though it did seem a little snugger.

Also tried my Orzly grip on it and it also fits but very tightly. I'm not sure if I'll keep using it, might be a little too tight on there.

Going to look at my tempered glass screen protector for the original Switch later. They usually come in packs so I had a second left over. I don't think it's going to work, though. The front looks totally different.

My "Backordered" Target white Switch shipped, and will supposedly be here on Tuesday. Works for me. I got the screen protectors the other day, so I'm all set. I guess the only other thing I need is another Switch case. I've been rocking my LoZ Breath of the Wild collector's case since day one. (I'm planning on keeping my launch unit.)

 

Any case recommendations?

I didn't preorder, but visited one of my local Gamestops. The shop got 12 switches total (6 white & 6 neon blue/red.) Of the 12, 8 were pre-orders (5 white & 3 neon.) I was first in line at 5:45 am this morning, with another guy who rolled up at 6:15 am. We were the only people until a couple people came for pokemon cards at 8:30. At 9 am the line had about a dozen people waiting. With only 4 switches available. Feel bad for em, but I made sure I was getting that final, white switch. I played some Grindstone and Metroid Dread and it was definitely worth the long morning: the vivid mode looks GREAT. Hope those of you waiting get your OLED's soon!!!

I got lucky, checked on google just to see. One target 30 mins from me in dallas had a blue& red one. Going to pick it up tomorrow, can't believe how lucky that was.

Oh man, I just found out that the non-OLED Switch isn't going to get a price drop.  Ah come on Nintendo, throw in a free game or something; especially for the Switch Lite.

Previous years Nintendo has done bundles with a game.

I'm guessing they'll clear out remaining inventory with a black Friday bundle and phase that one out.

Would they dare bring back the Mario kart bundle yet again for $299…

Lucky, I’m curious how long these will be sold out for? I had one preordered way back and canceled it, now I’m considering it again.

Was lucky enough to get the last copy of Metroid Dread Special Edition at Target at 1am yesterday (it said only one left, I’m guessing that was only one left in the area and not nation wide? Lol)

Lol it’s gonna happen. I’d bet on it. This time I could see them being v2 switches however with the longer battery life.

Thanks for those that posted about the GameStop trade in value for Pro members. Traded in my regular Switch last night for $260 in store credit.

I mean, no doubt the OLED is the best iteration yet. Incremental but not mediocre.

Check this out.  My red/blue neon Switch from Target was delivered today, and the second order for a white model is still on backorder until Oct 22.

I was able to snag a white OLED from Amazon yesterday and it just shipped for Monday delivery, along with some glass screen protectors I threw in. When I first ordered it, it didn't give me an estimated delivery date, so I made a back-up order at Best Buy just in case Amazon was canceled. However, I had $35 in courtesy credit with Amazon (they lost my husband's new computer case and sent him a second one with some courtesy credit), so I'm glad they shipped. Once I safely have the OLED in my hands, I'll cancel Best Buy (that one won't be ready at my local store until Wednesday). Now, I use the word safely because Amazon decided to ship via USPS. God help me.

 

I was on the fence about the OLED when it was announced, but I play a ton of handheld so I decided to make the jump, and my Switch is a launch model that's beginning to show some age. I guess I'll be selling to Gamestop to avoid the ebay nightmare. Hopefully they'll still do the $260 credit next week, but if not, no big deal. I won't trade in my old one until I have a new one in hand and $220 is still a great amount of credit.

The OLED Switch is…better than I thought it would be. Lots of good QOL improvements. I was mad it wasn’t faster, but the screen IS a big improvement.

Any grip recommendations yet? My old one technically fits, but it covers up the volume buttons and headphone jack, so I can't really use it.

I think I'm going to try my old screen protector, though.

1 of the picture it shows makes it seems like it only works for the standard switch system.

There's also a question with a response from the seller saying it isn't compatible with the OLED.

Yeah the screen looks really great. Playing Metroid dread and the colors are just bleeding off the screen. I don't play handheld a ton, but this is definitely going to make me play more. The screen size is awesome too, I didn't expect the small increase to feel so much bigger.
