Nintendo Switch owners: Don’t panic. If you’re jealous of the newly announced OLED Switch, don’t be—it’s not for you, and you probably don’t need it. Probably.
The new Switch is pretty much the old Switch with a bigger, better OLED screen, upgraded speakers, a better kickstand (the old kickstand might be the worst kickstand ever included on a shipping product), and some extra storage. And if you mostly play with your Switch docked to a TV or monitor, then there are even fewer reasons to upgrade.
“I think for the majority of people, this Switch update is not necessary. Games will still run just fine, and most will look great. Only if you have money to burn and use your Switch often in undocked mode should you consider this,” Christen Costa, CEO of Gadget Review, told Lifewire via email.
