Not a fan of the Nintendo Switch OLED? The original model could see a price drop

With the Nintendo Switch OLED’s release mere weeks away (it’s due October 8, 2021), rumors are circulating that the original 2017 model could see a price drop very soon.

As reported by Nintendo Life, a French Twitter leaker by the name of Nintend’Alerts claims that the original Nintendo Switch model will receive a fairly hefty price drop before the release of the OLED, from €329 to €270. For other territories, that equates to around $320 / £240 / AU$440.
