Price seems steep but it doesn’t look like a simple ‘spit shine’ remaster (looking at you Skyrim).
Yes graphics will, literally, be the most noticeable thing in trailers. But switching to Unreal Engine + modernising the controls should have a big improvement on overall feel. And on top of that, given the many, many, many hours of content – far more than you’d get from new games or other remasters at that price. Seems worth it to me.
To naysayers, I say this: look past your dislike for Rockstar and see what you’re getting – easily 100 hours+ of content. And if it’s content you’ve already consumed 10 years ago, so what – happens all the time. We re-watch movies, we watch new movies that are remasters of old movies, people bought Skyrim "Spit ‘n’ Shine Edition" in droves, CoD Modern Warfare Remaster in droves – all those things are easily under <100 hours of content aside from Skyrim for die-hard players.
Edit: And if it’s overpriced, then don’t buy it. Just wait for it to drop in 6 months or so.
I see your points. But the OLED one is basically the current Switch with a better screen – ergo – it’s a better Switch all-round.
And knowing re-sale values of even the day 1 Switch, I’d say the OLED version will be worth even more when it comes to re-sale.
Old Nintendo consoles seem to hold their value like the iPhone does – they may sell a ton of them, but they also re-sale really well as well.
But I guess that all depends on how long you intend to keep the Switch and if you plan to resell it. If it’s a lifetime purchase, I’d still spend a little more for the OLED unless I was on a budget.

OneDrive is a much better name anyway, so Microsoft ultimately got the win there IMO.
SkyDrive played on the craze around ‘cloud’, which today isn’t as much of a buzzword.

Please tell me that’s a really well done mock-up.
