Nintendo Employee Tells Fans To Stick With The Current Switch, If They're Not "Digging" The OLED Screen
Does it run any better? "Nope"
Does it run any better? "Nope."
Nintendo has announced a new Switch and it has got owners of the older models wondering if it's time for an upgrade. The company is yet to make an official statement about this - and likely won't directly address it, but it has clarified the OLED model does not have a new CPU or a RAM upgrade. Apart from the improved screen, internal memory upgrade, and a few other minor differences, it's much the same as the current dock version model.
While we don't have a statement from Nintendo about whether or not the new system is "worth it" for existing owners, we do now have a comment from the manager of product marketing (and Treehouse rep) at Nintendo of America, JC Rodrigo, via social media. When asked by a fan if the new system ran any better, he responded with a simple "nope" and told them to stick with the current one, unless they were interested in the screen upgrade.
While it might seem obvious it's not much more than a screen upgrade at this point, it's still interesting to hear when it's coming directly from a Nintendo employee. In other words, there's no need to try and justify an upgrade, if you aren't taken by it. With JC's advice in consideration, do you think you'll be getting the new Switch OLED model?
