The new Nintendo Switch OLED Model is here (and gamers aren't happy)

So, it turns out the much-rumoured upgraded Nintendo Switch is not called the Nintendo Switch Pro, or the Super Nintendo Switch. Instead, it has been given the altogether less exciting title: Nintendo Switch OLED Model. And if the immediate fan reaction is anything to go by, the specs are as disappointing as the name.

After months of speculation, Nintendo finally announced the "new' console today, and it hasn't exactly been met with rapturous applause. Spoiler alert: if a slightly improved screen isn't that important to you, you might want to stick to these brilliant Nintendo Switch Black Friday deals.
