Late last week, a credible rumor out of France alleged that the Nintendo Switch was in for a significant price cut in Europe. The tweet from Nintend'Alerts alleged that the Switch would fall to as low as €270 in France. Well, we're here to say that the initial reporting was correct, and an official price cut is now effective across Europe. The price in Europe has fallen from €329.99 to €299.99. However, Amazon France currently lists the console for €251.09. In the United Kingdom, the official price of the Switch dropped from £279.99 to £259.99, although retailer pricing is trending a bit lower.

The $299 Nintendo Switch has been on the market for well over four years, and during that time, it hasn't received an official price cut.

Here's the thing—Nintendo so far has only said the Switch OLED will release on October 8, 2021, but did not say when preorders will actually go live. There were reports that some retailers in the UK had opened up preorders for the upcoming game console, but as of this writing,... Read more...
The many rumors about Nintendo's updated Switch with an OLED display that pelted us over the past few months were accurate, but the timing of the announcement was a bit off. The company surprised us all this morning by announcing the new OLED model without any fanfare. As expected, the new display panel measures 7 inches diagonally versus 6.2 inches for the original Switch. While earlier rumors had indicated that the new Switch would support up to 4K resolutions, Nintendo brings us back down to earth by confirming that it only supports up to 1080p when docked. So, unfortunately, the hopes of gaming with the Nintendo Switch at 4K resolution with NVIDIA DLSS have gone up in smoke. Given that... Read more...
