The price of the very popular Nintendo Switch system in Europe has dropped slightly. Hybrid systems are currently facing healthy competition from the newer Xbox Series S|X consoles and Sony PlayStation 5. Nintendo will release the more high-end Nintendo Switch (OLED model) on October 8 to help continue to ignite sales, and has decided to reduce the price of the original Switch console since its launch in March 2017, which has remained the same. In the UK, the retail price of the Nintendo Switch is 260 pounds, while the original asking price is 280 pounds. Switch Lite has not decreased. The retail price of the Nintendo Switch (OLED model) is still £310.
