    Still doesn't ouptut 4k though on 4k TVs. But at $349, this is still priced very well.

    4K gaming on a Nintendo unit will have to wait to next gen. The Switch's internal storage is so small compared to the PlayStation's, Xbox's, and PC's. Their focus in current gen is on handheld and table top gaming.

    I’m still waiting for the Switch to be able to connect to bluetooth headphones.

    My guess is local stores will sell it for 22-24k. For gadgets, be it gray market or official launch, it's more or less US SRP then add another $100 because of import taxes + shipping & handling.

    Nintendo doing it's own thing as usual. I think the company is just adamant about not entering into a hardware arms race with Sony and MS.

    Nintendo is not after Sony and MS.

    Nintendo for me is the Apple of the video gaming market, as they focus more on personal experiences, ease of use, overall quality of both hardware and software (except for their digital marketplaces), and approachability for all ages. They do their own thing, but in a very Japanese way.

    It is also only Nintendo that their products and franchises (like pokemon) could rake millions of dollars and deem collectible and even an investment than the likes of what Sony or Microsoft has put out there. Almost cult-like, and we as Mac & iOS users know how cult-like the most loyal users of Apple products can get.

    We may be gaming on 720p x 1080p and seeing those jagged graphics goodness, but Nintendo games have always been the ones I think a lot even years after I finish it- It just has so much charm and soul.

    Anywho, I'll surely pass on this oled one unless my 1st gen switch dies on me. Really really excited for NEO: The World Ends with You, the first version of the game on Nintendo DS was my favorite on that console along with the Phoenix Wright series. (y)

    I think it’s already available. I have the 13.0 system update already. But I haven’t tried pairing my airpods with the switch yet.

    Nice! Is the audio latency as bad as the articles say?

    Haven’t tried it yet with immersive games. I just played an old castlevania game. Will check later with Zelda.
