Nintendo Switch OLED vs Nintendo Switch: Is it worth buying?


By Ray Ampoloquio November 26, 2021

In just 4 years, the Nintendo Switch has already become one of the best-selling consoles in history. 

With nearly 100 million units sold, the Switch is close to overtaking the Wii and the original PS1. 

The release of the Nintendo Switch OLED might just help the Switch sell a couple millions more over the next few years. 

However, while we're sure that people will buy the Nintendo Switch OLED, it's still fair to wonder if it's worth it. 

The Nintendo Switch OLED has a prettier screen, larger kickstand, and better speakers at just $50 more. 

The Switch OLED is a better console, no doubt, but it's only a marginal improvement compared to the standard Switch. 

If you're wondering if it's worth buying, the only scenario we'd recommend it is if you're a first-time Switch owner. 

If you already have a Switch, you're better off buying more games instead of getting a Switch OLED.
