Nintendo has reduced the price of base Switch consoles in Europe ahead of the imminent OLED model, putting the standard gray and neon blue/neon red versions at £259.99/€299.99.
This isn’t a particularly huge saving, only knocking off £20 in the UK. Not much for a console that’s over four years old, though it does show that the Switch is still selling well even today.
Speaking to Eurogamer, a Nintendo of Europe rep stated that the price change came about due to “a variety of factors, including currency exchange rates in Europe and the upcoming launch of Nintendo Switch – OLED Model”.
The Switch Lite will continue to be sold for £199.99, with the aforementioned OLED model releasing next month for £309.99.
