It seems that Switch OLED has got off to a strong start sales-wise, so many of you reading this must have picked up Nintendo’s new console SKU over the last week or so. We’re fans of the lovely new screen and the various refinements to the basic design that gives the consoles a marginally more premium feel over the trusty standard Switches we’ve been rocking for several years now.
Looking at Nintendo’s marketing materials, you’d be forgiven for thinking that there’s only one variant available — the one with the new white dock and Joy-Con — but there’s also a version with the good old neon red and blue Joy-Con and a black dock for the Switch traditionalists and lovers of the OG hues.
A quick survey around the NL office shows the neon red/blue option was the less popular choice by a significant margin. In fact, only Darren — our sterling Ops Director — went for the
boring classic option. He’s already squirreled away the new controllers in the loft, too, presumably for when the analogue sticks on his fetching Skyward Sword Joy-Con pair start playing up:
Which Switch OLED did you pick up, though? We imagine most will have gone for the brand new variety just for a change, but we’d like to back up that assumption with some cold hard data from your lovely selves. Feel free to let us know in the poll below and perhaps make Daz feel a little less lonely in his life choices.
