Very.co.uk and Amazon are taking pre-orders again, not checked anywhere else.


Lovely - pre-ordered a blue/pink one to go with the order for a white one I already have.

 

I do love the white one, and it’s different and new, but it’s the white dock I’m still unsure about 😭

Paint it/cover it in stickers/one of those shit wraps from eBay/hide it from view if it bothers you that much?

I am literally doing a daily dance with this mentally where I tell myself I don't want one and to cancel the order and then a voice says 'you'll really want one then and won't be able to get it anywhere before xmas'

 

It's quite a dilemma and if I'm honest the only reason the order remains open - I can't make a rational case for needing this as a mainly TV player with nothing wrong with their launch day Switch.

 

Ah but that is all reasonable and well and good, but look it's white and that screen you'll never use is so much better .........

pre order is still in, dusted off wii u + games and its been sold to pay for it.

 

picked up pro controller, deadly premonition 2, mario odyssey, mario kart but trying not to rebuy wii u games!.

 

not had a switch before and looking forward to it but it will spend most of its time behind the tv

So glad I ordered one now!

 

Doesn't look like my Satisfye grip will fit, hope it's not too long until they make one for the OLED. Might get a Skull & Co to tide me over as I struggle without a grip.

It's more than 25% bigger in terms of area. A little increase in the diagonal really does give you a lot more screen.

 

You're not wrong.

Those colours though. :o ARMS is going to make my eyeballs bleed.

It’s the same size, isn’t it? Just the screen is bigger.

Looks a tad bigger in the above pic, I've already ordered the Skull & Co grip (only about £12 delivered 🤷‍♂️) and it comes with a little extension to fit the OLED Switch.

This photo might have pushed me off the fence - the screen size increase looks more noticeable than I expected.

I’m completely underwhelmed by improvements that are only really noticeable if you somehow play them side by side.

Well its the only way to compare until we are holding it...


Yes I know - but no-one is going to be coming away with any conclusion about the screen other than it’s a bit better and a bit bigger.

You should see the colour festival that is Cruis'n blast. That would send your eyeballs running down your cheaks.

I’ll probably compare them side by side before I sell my old one but I expect after 4+ years and many many hours of looking at an LCD screen you’ll be able to tell very quickly. I  gratefully picked up an OLED vita this year and that 10 year old machine’s screen colour quality was noticeably better.
