The Nintendo switch

The Nintendo switch came out March 3, 2017 and ever since then people have been using them. It’s a unique console because you can play with it anywhere you want while being able to connect it to your TV or on your normal Nintendo screen. While playing with the Nintendo, you could also watch TV.


The Switch has a 6 inch 720p resolution touch screen, much better in comparison to many other models. While it doesn’t have the best graphics, it is amazing for a Nintendo gaming device and compensates by being a portable gaming device unlike the PlayStation or Xbox.   The switch is an amazing console if you game for fun and just want to have a good time with friends. If you are play competitive games, the switch is probably not for you.

Is the Nintendo switch OLED worth the price?

It has a new 7 inch screen with a new and improved kickstand

How Much Does It Cost?

The Nintendo switch OLED is $350 and it comes with 7 inch screen with 1280 x 720 resolution, 2 Joy-cons, and 2 Joy-con wrist straps.

Overall, which one is more worth the price?

In my opinion, if you just want to game for fun and are on a low budget, then you should probably buy an older model instead of the OLED. If you don’t have a budget and want better graphics, you should go for the OLED.a nintendo wii game controller sitting on top of a table
