Nintendo Switch Oled pre order starts today: Latest Gamestop, Best Buy, GAME news | Gaming | Entertainment
The Nintendo Switch Oled model is coming out later this year, and gamers can start pre-ordering now.
However, like with other big product launches in 2020 and this year, gamers are struggling to find an option to buy one.
The good news is that Nintendo Switch Oled pre-order options have started today in North America and have already begun in the UK.
Argos has an active page offering the Nintendo Switch Oled console that appears to allow you to add it to your trolley.
So that might be the first place to try when trying to buy in the UK this month and later in 2021.
The official GAME UK page states that console hunters can sign up to get updates regarding availability, adding:
“We’re currently out of stock of the Nintendo Oled Model. Enter your email address below to sign up to receive email updates when stock becomes available again.”
But like those customers who have been trying to buy Xbox Series X and PS5 consoles in 2021, it looks like this new Nintendo product is going to sell out quickly.
Gamestop revealed on Twitter today that they would begin selling Switch Oled consoles today as part of the pre-order process.
And if you check the site right now, it states that the $349.99 console is currently not available to pre-order.
The only consolation is that gamers could receive updates regarding when the new Nintendo Switch console is available to buy via Twitter messages and official sign-ups.
The Switch OLED Model features a host of improvements over the original model, such as a wider adjustable stand for tabletop mode and a LAN port for improved online performance.
With 64BG of internal storage, the Nintendo Switch OLED Model can hold more games – although you’ll probably still need an SD card if you download lots of games.
Finally, Nintendo has confirmed that the Nintendo Switch OLED Model will feature improved audio thanks to the beefier speakers.
Elsewhere, the stylish new console will launch with a brand new colour scheme, as well as the classic Neon Red and Neon Blue set-up.
Fans will be able to purchase a white model, complete with white Joy-Con controllers, a black main unit and a white dock.
Unlike the Switch Lite, the OLED Model will support both handheld and docked gameplay, meaning it can be played at home on the TV, and on the go.
