Update on my walmart preorder back in July, chatted with a rep a couple of days ago and he told me not worry that my “delay,” would be fixed and my order will placed once they have located the inventory.  Don’t have much confidence in that and as of this morning my order still showing delayed.  

As of this morning, my order still showing delayed; however, it has a FedEx tracking number showing that it’s scheduled to be delivered this Tuesday.  Also, received an email from walmart with the same information.  I think the overall supply chain issue across the world is effecting everything from bananas to to OLED Switches...the world we live in now...

Do you know if they showing up on their website as being in stock at the store or are they showing out of stock but they are actually in stock? (If anyone that has found them in store can answer this it would be appreciated)

Curious to see if it’s worth calling the local Walmarts.

Literally takes two seconds on brickseek and plugging in the zip for that city/state. The answer is no, btw. Not showing up

Gotcha, brickseek has been awful lately where I live, it’s pretty much a 50/50 chance it is correct the last few months I’ve used it.

That's more an issue with your local store(s) than Brickseek.  It just reports what the website reports as in stock, they don't have a special hook into Target's system.  Employees might not have checked in stock, or moved it out to the floor, might have stock held for customers or whatever else they have to do to keep inventory numbers up to date.  Not much you can do about it.

As nice as the screen upgrade is, I can not justify buying the OLED. I play 95% in docked mode on my 65" tv. I really want a more powerful Switch to release. C'mon Nintendo!

i justified upgrading this way

 

1. it "only" cost me $89+tax to trade in my 2 year old switch and get a new white oled switch, and it was $89 in trade credit which I easily made by earlier trading in extra games, contrrollers, and extra ps4 pro during the 50% trade.  what else am i gonna buy, new games mostly suck lol

 

2. a switch 2 is at LEAST one year out.  The rumors of a new switch started circulating last year, got more firm by mid year, and it was announced in July and started selling in October (so 3 month wait).  Current rumors say a new switch model is likely going to target holiday 2022, even thats probably being optimistic so realistically 2023.  

 

Thats at least 1 year, for $100 its a no brainer to upgrade to the latest and have a new warranty, and the OLED will be more worth more in trade value when a new switch model is out.  At this point there is pretty much a zero percent chance a new switch model comes out for at least 9 months.

Its also replacing all three batteries in your device (tablet and both controllers), and giving you brand new joycons.

I've been trying to talk my kid into letting me upgrade his Switch to an OLED but he's become weirdly attached to it... Kids...

My $299 Switch OLED neon that was ordered from Walmart is "Out for Delivery". I sold my Switch earlier this year for $300, so free upgrade.

 

Looking forward to seeing how the oled screen looks.  Double the storage (64gb) is better than no upgrade but obviously more would have been nicer.  And the reason to upgrade is of course...... the improved :D/ kickstand. :D/

This is my thinking too. #1 Improved kickstand.

#2: if I can get $150 for my lite on offer up, I also have to replace the joycons I traded in. So basically gonna pay $130 plus tax of around $35.

$165 for OLED. New warranty. New battery.

The only thing holding me back is I like the lites form factor even if the screen isn’t very nice.

Someone commented way back on being disappointed that the older Switch's price wasn't being discounted.  My thinking is Nintendo didn't want to lower the price so they set the OLED version at $350, making the previous one the cheaper alternative without discounting it.  When stock for the old one sell out, then they'll lower the price of the OLEDs to $300.  That's my believe.

The market will bear $350 for now so no need to lower the price. Their first step is a pack-in game. You won’t see a price reduction till BF 2022 at the earliest.

They'll sell out the old ones this holiday, then around March the OLEDs will drop to $300.

Nintendo will not lower the price of the OLED to $300 by March. You have more chance that all of the scalpers decide to sell them for that price than you have of Nintendo dropping the retail price down any amount.

I understand why you and anyone that would think that.  But I disagree, they will drop to $300 by March.

Yes, by March 2022.  I'm not going to make any more comments about this subject because it's not that important, but you'll see. :mrgreen:

I’ll bet you a $5 eshop code. Official price drop. Not a glitch.

I'll see you optimism with my pessimism.  This is coming from the company the just added $40 for Online "expansion," to play a handful of N64, Genesis games, and Animal Crossing DLC.

The NES/SNES Classic consoles sold out every year they offered them. Realistically, there's a market for this expensive nostalgia even if we aren't the buyers.

My ideal Switch is a Switch Lite with a bigger screen(preferably OLED) that can be docked. The form factor is fantastic especially in the flip case. Could easily fit a 6+ inch screen if they removed the bezels and I’m sure they could fit USB C out within the current Switch Lite casing.
