HHW Gaming: The Nintendo Switch OLED Is The New Console Jig, Gamers React To It Selling Out Immediately

Move over PS5 and Xbox Series X. The Nintendo Switch OLED is the newest hard-to-find gaming console.

Despite being met with mixed reviews because it was not the “Pro Model” Nintendo fanboys were hoping for, the company that gave us Mario has another hit on their hands with the Nintendo Switch OLED model. The new OLED Model doesn’t set itself apart from the first Nintendo Switch Console but does offer a new vibrant 7-inch OLED screen with vivid colors and crisp contrast, a better kickstand, and a LAN port.

The Nintendo Switch OLED arrived alongside the new Metroid: Dread game, and it immediately sold out. Like the PS5 and Xbox Series X consoles, the search to find one of Nintendo’s latest hybrid consoles has quickly become complex. One issue, of course, scalpers. The Nintendo Switch OLED model is already being scalped on sites like StockX, with the highest bid coming at $430.

On Amazon, the asking price for a  Nintendo Switch OLED model is a ridiculous $780, that’s well above the $350 retail price, and it doesn’t even come with any games.

God, scalpers, why must you ruin everything #SwitchOLED #NintendoSwitchOLED pic.twitter.com/VxyVQ7ZxRl

Also, keep in mind, Nintendo is a victim of the current supply chain issues, and like Sony and Microsoft can not get consoles out to meet the demand due to chip shortages. During the height of the COVID-19 pandemic, it was almost impossible to get your hands on a Nintendo Switch console, and the chances are that will be the case well into the new year with Nintendo Switch OLED.

The Switch OLED in Best Buy just went from “Coming Soon” to “Sold Out” without any stock changes or availability.

Holy moly, BOT-man! #NintendoSwitch #SwitchOLED

@BestBuy What was the point of that flashy Nintendo Switch OLED countdown page? Every single item went from “Coming Soon” to “Sold Out” less than one second after the countdown reached zero. Either no stock was released at all, or your system is still useless against bots.
