Nintendo's basic Switch model is now cheaper in the UK and mainland Europe by around £20 ahead of the arrival of Switch OLED.
You can buy a ps5 digital for £90 more
Can you find them?
Yes, easiest pre order ever. I phoned the shop up the day of the reveal event and they said there taking pre orders tomorrow at 8am. I wasn't a idiot who thought pressing a F6 refresh button during a global lockdown of a population of 8billion was going to get me a launch console.
Yeah, that would be idiotic... No ones getting a PS5 pressing F6, especially when F5 is refresh.
Yeah but you’d be £90 worse off and wouldn’t be able to play Mario on the train.
The PS5 digital isn't portable like the Switch and £90 is a big difference to some folk. I'll also point out Switch games are around £40 or less. PS5 exclusives are around £60.
Skyward sword, a 10 year old 'remaster' launched for £50-55, mario kart 8, a port of a 7 year old game that released 4.5 years ago is still priced from £40-50, Breath of the Wild, a launch game is still priced at £40-50. I can buy GoW 2018 from amazong right now for £13. I don't condone the launch price of PS5 exclusives and i find £60-70 ludicrous, but Nintendo are by far the worst for game pricing as a whole.
£20 reduction, lol.
I actually paid €309 at launch because of a mistake by the webshop. :P
Nice, got a good deal on a used one myself.
no worries they will feel the burn when the steam deck is released. i love my switch because i love playing in handheld mode but im selling the switch for the deck as soon as i can
In France it went to 269€ And lite to 189
A whopping £20, wow so generous.
I'm a Nintendo guy, but they can shove this "price drop" and that pointless OLED model up their ass.
The price drop seems more like an insult
299€ with the OLED sitting at 349€ is not appealing at all. Hopefully, the street price will decrease to around 250€.
Truth is, Nintendo doesn’t need to drop the price at all, they would still sell at full retail. Same goes for their software.
