After much procrastination since 2017, I finally decided to get the Nintendo Switch (OLED Model) after Li Xiang approves the purchase.
The RRP for Nintendo Switch (OLED Model) in Singapore is S$549 and is being distributed by Maxsoft. However, during 11/11 Singles’ Day, I managed to get it for S$481.85.
I missed the flash sale for the Nintendo Switch v2, which is going for S$399 (RRP is S$469). I think the stocks for the flash sale are extremely limited.
Two colors are available for the Nintendo Switch (OLED Model), Red/Blue and White. I chose Red/Blue as that is the classic Nintendo Switch color.
The main difference between the OLED model and v2 is the 7″ OLED screen vs. 6″ LCD, 64 GB vs. 32 GB, better kickstand, and LAN port on the docking station.
The microSDXC is at the back and can be accessed after flipping the kickstand. I recommend getting the SAMSUNG EVO Select 512GB microSDXC UHS-I U3 from Amazon.sg as it only cost S$88.68. You can wait for Black Friday in two more weeks to see whether the price will drop further.
The Game Card slot is located at the top, and that is where you insert the physical Nintendo Switch game. Alternatively, you can also get the game from Nintendo Game Store and download it directly to your Nintendo Switch. As Singapore doesn’t have a Nintendo Game Store, you can technically use any region with the lowest game price. You just have to create a different profile for different regions. That is quite a hassle, so I just decided to stick to the United States as my region.
This is the third Nintendo gaming console that I have after the Super Nintendo Entertainment System (NES), and Nintendo Wii (2009).
