SAVE on the Nintendo Switch OLED with this rare deal

Take advantage of this sizable saving and grab a Nintendo Switch OLED model for £14 off

If you’ve been looking longingly at the Nintendo Switch OLED Model, then now is the time to act. The price has just dropped to £289 on Amazon, which amounts to a discount of £14 off the average sale price. That might not seem like much, but it’s a rare saving on Nintendo’s latest hybrid console and one that should be enough to tempt anyone looking to upgrade their existing Switch or just jump into Nintendo’s catalogue of fantastic exclusive titles for the first time.

This deal makes it a smart time to invest in this impressive piece of gaming hardware. In our comprehensive Nintendo Switch OLED review, we praised how it improved on the previous model with a significantly more impressive screen, increased storage and sturdier construction. It got four stars from us and a Recommended award.

Whilst it may not have been the great hardware leap forward some fans were hoping for – and Nintendo still hasn’t solved the drifting Joy-Con issue – the Nintendo Switch OLED still takes what made its predecessors great and adds a few impressive new features as well as a number of welcome tweaks. Most notably, the screen is both bigger – 7in up from 6.2 – and, more significantly, is now an OLED rather than an LCD. This change is immediately visible: the Nintendo Switch OLED’s display has wider contrast, improved vibrancy and higher peak luminance.

You also get 64GB of internal storage, which is double the size of the original, housed in a black metal chassis rather than the plastic of the original Switch. The kickstand has also had an upgrade and now runs the width of the console’s rear. Both changes contribute to the Nintendo Switch OLED feeling significantly more robust than its sibling. And the great thing is that these changes haven’t added to the console’s dimensions or weight, meaning the Switch’s potential as a portable console isn’t compromised.

Make sure to check out the deal while it lasts.
