    I was hopeful for a Pro model but once the OLED came out I'd expect a year or two until anything more. It's a shame as there are plenty of games that can make use of some extra grunt, the Switch is pretty flexible being able to adapt to changing resolutions and clock speeds depending on if docked or not and many games use dynamic resolution so it wouldn't be much work to allow games to make use of higher end hardware.

    I've not had chance to play the game as yet, just waiting on the memory card to arrive today. It's on offer at £22 currently so decided to take a punt and relive my youth! So many hours spent playing it when younger.

    I think the only other game I'm really going to get now is Zelda.

    I was hoping they would have released a Starfox or F-Zero game but looking around no such look!

    The OLED will be held back for the Switch 2 Pro version, as is custom for all Nintendo handhelds.

    Nintendo have stated they won't develop an F-Zero game unless they can do something new with the series.

    Just finished Mario Odyssey and Christ, it's exceptional.

    The way it plays and the visuals are absolutely top tier - thoroughly enjoyed it!

    Yeah they smashed it with Odyssey to be fair. They do a lot wrong but they got that one right at least.

    Ha, you think they're accepting it's their fault?

    well they made the joysticks so it is their fault. someone even a third party should make hall effect sensor joycons and they would sell real well. id be up for getting a switch then.

    They didn't make them, they purchased them as a single fabricated unit.

    Thats sad. The switch has some excellent games on it that adults and kids like. Mario kart, mario odyssey, kirby etc.
    Really hope they sort something in the future

    You can use other pads, I used Hori Split Pad Pro controllers, bit easy for big hands to hold too.

    Picked up a Switch OLED for long commutes or days when I don't feel like sitting at my PC and I've got £25 credit on the Nintendo store, any recommendations of a good cheap game to pickup?

    Not since they first annouced it.
