But it now, go go go (pic: Nintendo)
After being out of stock since launch, the Nintendo Switch OLED is now available at Box, so act fast.
This past Black Friday and Cyber Monday, many of you no doubt took advantage of the special offers and discounts going on for the Nintendo Switch console.
The only downside was that there were no deals for the OLED model, on account of it being completely out of stock. While Nintendo has yet to make it available again on its official website, it has made a sudden reappearance at Box.
So far, it’s only the Neon Red/Blue OLED model and it’s no cheaper than it would be on Nintendo’s website, retailing at £309.99. But if you had intended on buying it the first time around, and wound up missing out, this is an opportunity you’ll want to snap up sooner rather than later.
There are only 15 in stock at the time of writing but if has sold out by the time you read this, you won’t need to worry too much. Box has said they will also have the White OLED model in from tomorrow. It will cost the same as the Neon Red/Blue model and will likely be in limited supply as well.
As a reminder, the main difference between the OLED model and the regular Nintendo Switch console is the OLED screen. This means improved colour definition and contrast, resulting in games looking much better compared to the original model.
It also has a better kickstand, improved speakers, and comes with a dock that includes an Ethernet socket.
However, the OLED model is no more powerful than the original model. Despite rumours of a Nintendo Switch Pro, the OLED model does not support 4K resolution and nor does it have a better battery life.
In the meantime, there are still a number of Black Friday offers going for the regular Nintendo Switch, including bundles with specific games. You can find a list of the best ones here.
