It is only in four very short weeks, on October 8, 2021, that the new Nintendo Switch with Oled screen will appear on the market, but today September 13, it is indeed to the original version of the console that Nintendo of Europe has decided to give it a little boost. The Switch with LCD screen, as we have known it since 2017, has seen its price drop by a few tens of euros at most retailers.
As usual, Nintendo scrupulously respects European regulations which prevent manufacturers from imposing a price on retailers, and therefore refrain from communicating any indicative price. In practice, the console is now offered by most of said retailers at a maximum price of € 300, instead of € 330 until now. Amazon even allows itself to use its colossal financial strike force to drop the label to € 269.99.
Specific to Europe, this price drop is in all likelihood not a commercial transaction per se, but simply a financial adjustment relative to current exchange rates. Anyway, it places the original Switch in a new position compared to its two sisters, the Switch Lite and the future Switch Oled. If the first still manages to maintain its status as a call-in offer (it can generally be found between 200 and 230 €), the second suddenly becomes an even significantly more premium offer than it was before. Always orderable for prices between 350 and 360 €, its price is in fact between 60 and 80 € higher than that of the LCD model. The sum may seem very steep for a “simple” change of screen, without any other major technical improvement…
