It all started in the UK and European markets before the launch of the OLED version, but there was no update regarding a price drop in the US. The previous price of the console was $300, which is now available at a discount of $20 to $40.

Switch sales are surely going to make new highs!

Japanese Giant Nintendo has released quite a few gaming consoles over the years. From its first release of the Nintendo Entertainment unit in 1983 to making the Nintendo Switch, the company has come a long way.

The release of the OLED version of the Switch acted as a cherry on the icing as it allowed the company to make a handsome profit.


Nintendo Switch was released six years back. With an introductory price of $300, the company never discounted the console. It was pretty odd for its fans, as other consoles saw a prize drop in a few years or the same one.

A prime example of this would be the Wii, which got a discount after three years of release, and the Wii U, which went down right after the first year. So, the price drop for the new Nintendo Switch has created a buzz in the markets.

If you’re looking for a handy and eye-catchy investment, you should really go for the Nintendo Switch. The franchise has filled the game library with different games, allowing users to have a combined experience. So, if you are a die-hard fan of Pokemon, Zelda, Minecraft, and Mario, this one is the best option.

Honestly, the console looks tiny, but it is fantastic for a hardcore gaming session. Plus, the $20 price drop is available. So what are you waiting for? Grab it before the offer runs out.
