Im yellow now.
why ghz never seem to get... idk larger?
My OLED was £320 from Amazon UK.I mean yeah, OLED Model launched at over 400$ in Europe. Since when was anything less than 399.99$ ever reasonable to expect when OLED Model is 349.99$?
I'd say 449.99$ would be the absolute minimum launch price of the next Switch unless OLED falls to 299.99 to fit a 399.99 Drake model into the lineup cleanly. This could mean the discontinuation of the V2 (speculated for some time.) This would explain the OLED Model's relatively tame advertising before launch. OLED Model is what V2 was meant to be, internally it's been price optimised to hell and back, with smaller circuit boards, smaller chips, smaller cooling system, lots of empty space. V2 by comparison is incredibly inefficiently designed with an oversized cooling system and support circuitry the Mariko doesn't need because the V2 just got it dropped in hot off the press with no optimisations. The actual "S" model (comparable to Xbox One S, or Xbox 360 S) of this generation is the OLED Model. The only difference from usual is that this redesign became more expensive, but that's not entirely unusual, the PSP Go was a cost reduced product sold at a "premium" price. It would also hugely simplify production going into a new model. Four forms of the "same" machine on sale at the same time is just unlikely and inefficient. By replacing V2 with the OLED in the market, it allows more flexibility with Drake pricing, could mean if Drake uses the same adaptor, dock and cables, they could even simplify production with only one kind of HDMI cable, one kind of dock, and one kind of adaptor being shipped, along with internal optimisations (OLED and Drake sharing the same hinge design, Joy-Con rails, possibly battery, then OLED and Lite using the same cooling assembly.)
When I say "Europe", I mean Europe, as in either the peninsula of Eurasia, or the economic and political union of Europe (The EEA and EU respectively), the UK being in neither place, and when I talk prices IN EUROPE, I think, at least, I would HOPE, that I can safely assume one realises I am talking about the EUROPEAN currency, the EURO, which as far as I'm aware the UK fought very hard in 1980, 1998, 2000, 2002, 2007 and 2016 NOT to partake in.My OLED was £320 from Amazon UK.
Don't want to be a downer but it's really looking like China is going to invade Taiwan very soon:
Not sure how this will play out but this will cripple tech imports for years if not decades if China really does invade. This really sucks and it's making me have a hard time getting excited for a potential Switch 2 when people may not even be able to buy old consoles soon.
They have not officially set an RRP in the EU/UK for years due to them being fined by the EU for price fixing 2 decades ago, it's why all their global retail announcements avoid mentioning European prices.When I say "Europe", I mean Europe, as in either the peninsula of Eurasia, or the economic and political union of Europe (The EEA and EU respectively), the UK being in neither place, and when I talk prices IN EUROPE, I think, at least, I would HOPE, that I can safely assume one realises I am talking about the EUROPEAN currency, the EURO, which as far as I'm aware the UK fought very hard in 1980, 1998, 2000, 2002, 2007 and 2016 NOT to partake in.
Even then... £320 (Pounds Sterling) was over $400 (American Dollar/USD) at the launch of the OLED Model. It was €365 MSRP in the Eurozone, which, to reiterate, if someone is talking "European prices", you can usually safely assume they mean the price in Euros, the clue being in the name, and 365 European Euros in October of 2021 was indeed in excess of 400 US Dollars.
Moreover Nintendo UK sets MSRP for both GBP and Euro sales (In the Republic of Ireland). £320 or €365 in October 2021 were pretty much the same price, give or take VAT but ROI and UK have if not synchronised, then at least, similar VAT rates.
The point stands, Nintendo has already positioned a Switch no more powerful than the original ABOVE $400(USD) in some markets, including the world's largest by total spending power (EEA), so a new more powerful one would certainly go above and beyond that unless they restructure pricing.
As someone who lives in the Eurozone. That's untrue.They have not officially set an RRP in the EU/UK for years due to them being fined by the EU for price fixing 2 decades ago, it's why all their global retail announcements avoid mentioning European prices.
Came for hardware news; left with hunger for Norwegian fried dough . There are a couple Scandinavian restaurants in my city, and I'll see if they have this.TIL Another fun fact: the Norwegian equivalent to donuts is literally called "lard rings"
A much bigger display. Everything else is secondary. Back when a mini-LED panel was rumored, I wrote a post hypothesizing the business case for an iPad sized Switch; it's probably too niche for Nintendo though. Since I'm traveling more this year, I decided to build my own SwitchTabletop mode is probably one of the more underrated switch features.
How can that be improved if at all?
