Nintendo Switch Pro is what Switch owners wanted, but Nintendo Switch OLED is what Nintendo gave them.
Due out on October 8th, Nintendo ignored the requests for a better processor and 4K graphics, and just gave you the same near-five-year-old hardware but with a better screen… and despite the billions they’ve made, they’ll make you pay another $50 for it, as it costs $350.
And it still has Joycon drift.
Well done, Nintendo, if getting the Switch simps to buy the same old tired crap was your intention, you nailed it…
Jan 12th: Nintendo Switch Pro – It could finally be coming around Q2 2021, making that around spring/summer, and it will be capable of 4K visuals thanks to a new 4K UHD multimedia SoC (system on chip), it will have an OLED screen, and with games optimised for the new version of the console.

June 10th 2019:
Nintendo Switch Lite is the name of the new, announced handheld, but with a 5.5″ screen, and no TV output (which is what I’ve been wanting for my PS Vita, and I can’t find a PS TV for love nor (a lot of) money, in order to do this), All I can say is….
I might be interested when a Pro unit is announced, though.
Nintendo Switch Lite has, today, been announced as being released on September 20th 2019!
Check out the announcement trailer below:
Nintendo Switch Pro (+ Specs) – Coming in June 2019 apparently!
Nintendo Switch Pro – or whatever it’s going to be called – isn’t just a rumour, but it appears to be a fact, following two insider sources who have tipped off Rich from ReviewTechUSA, and it’s due out in June 2019.
In the USA, they would say it will ‘drop’ in June 2019, but then that would explain why so many of their existing Nintendo Switch console cases have cracked! (When did ‘drops’ become a thing? It’s super-annoying! Duh!)
It’s due to have 512Gb internal RAM storage, plus the power of what a base PS4 unit has now, but with the PS5 and Xbox Two snapping at its heels, while those consoles are running a game at a native 4K and 60fps, the Nintendo Switch Pro will be running it in 1080p at 30ps
It will also have a $399 retail price, so expect around £399 in the UK, although will people pay that for a handheld when Sony and Microsoft will no doubt reduce the price of their PS4 Pro and Xbox One X at the same time?
The only thing putting me off is the lack of Nintendo Switch Pro third party support. When L.A. Noire came out on the Switch, I thought things were changing and I was interested, but then…. not a whole lot has happened since that’s been of interest for me.
