I have mine preordered ๐Ÿ˜Ž. I'm looking forward to the improved screen, much better kickstand, and enhanced sound. Am curious to know if we'll see some slightly better battery life.

How about you, SW? Are you getting the Switch OLED or what?

Nah. Not into handheld gaming and even as a stationary system, rarely use the Switch as is.

Nope. Not worth the trouble of switching(HA!) from the OG switch.

Nah - it's too much money for the modest improvement it would make on my Switch experience. I'd pick that model if I was buying one "from scratch" though

Nope. I have the original switch and don't see the need to upgrade. Especially when it's hardly an upgrade at all.

I am thinking about getting a steam deck late next year though. I'm waiting to see how it does before I buy into the hype.

I play my Switches mobile. I do have Xboxโ€™s and PlayStations too. ๐Ÿ™„

And I had a nice GPU until itโ€™s value outweighed my use of it. Iโ€™ll be back on top of all the PC board benchmarks soon enough. Donโ€™t you worry

No, I play dock mode so it's not worth it for me. Plus I'm getting an OLED TV soon.

No. I play docked on the launch Switch, and the screen on that thing looks pretty good anyway.

Nope. I rarely play mine as is and when I do, it's docked. No point for me to get the OLED.

Look at all the people in this thread alone that use it only in docked me. The actual strength of the system (if you can even call it that) isn't even being used. What you get is just an incredibly underpowered home console.

Admittedly, yes, I have preordered with the understanding that I am getting ripped off. Such is the life of a collector. *sigh*

Hands on impressions say the screen is amazing.

I'm going to sell my launch model hackable switch for $$$ and get an OLED.

It's a beautiful looking product.

Iโ€™d get the OLED if it came with an official Nintendo joy con that has an actual D-PADโ€ฆotherwise Iโ€™m sticking with switch lite.

D-pad > everything for games I play on the go. The Hori joycon someone recommended is an abomination doesnโ€™t work and looks like crap.

I have absolutely on interest what so ever in playing the Switch in portable mode, so no. In fact, Before buying a Switch at retail price I thought about getting one off eBay with a cracked screen on it, pull out the motherboard, toss the screen, toss the battery, gut the contents of the docking station, put it into a new 3D printed case, and console the thing into a TV only gaming console.

I am more in the "or what" category.

Looks good, I just don't have enough disposable income to spend on something I probably would use less than a few hours per week.

Besides, I don't commute or anything and I should probably read more in situations where I would find myself playing a Switch.

My boy has one, and it gets used in docked mode 95% of the time, not a chance in hell I'm spending $350 on a modest (at best) upgrade.

Nope. I was hoping Switch OLED would be Switch 2 and have roughly PS4 Pro / X1X power. 1080p/60 machine.

Nah, the OG is still more than competent, since Nintendo refuses to upgrade the system in any meaningful way.

Nintendo wants to sell you 3 or 4 or even 5 switches with very little justification - glad most people here aren't falling for it. Proud of y'all.
