The company “Nintendo” launched the new gaming device “Switch” with a larger 7-inch OLED screen, with a resolution of 720 pixels, and it supports 1080p resolution via TV mode only.
The company says that the battery life of the new device is up to 9 hours, which is the same amount as the original Switch, and the new device is slightly longer than the original, and it is also slightly heavier at 0.32 kg compared to 0.29 kg for the original device.
In addition to the new monitor, this revised model includes an adjustable stand for cross-table gaming, 64GB of built-in storage, a new dock with built-in wired Ethernet port, and enhanced audio for handheld or tabletop gaming.
The new Switch arrives nearly two years after Nintendo released the Switch Lite, a smaller, cheaper version of the Switch that you can’t connect to a TV.
Switch sales have been high, with the platform dominating the US sales charts for nearly two years in a row, and Switch sales have reached 84.59 million units shipped since its launch in 2017, a number close to the Wii platform’s sales mark of 101.63 million.
The latest model of the Switch will go on sale for $350, starting October 8.
On the other hand, the veteran company Atari has shifted its focus away from free mobile games to PC and platform games, and is one of the pioneers of the idea of the modern home gaming platform.
In a recent statement, the company said its board of directors approved the new plan on July 1, after conducting an in-depth review of the Atari games division’s assets and opportunities.
The move comes less than a month after the release of the much-delayed Atari VCS platform, which functions as an old game machine and PC.
By reallocating these resources, Atari intends to leverage its massive list of 200 intellectual property to build premium games to be released across all platforms.
Atari said it’s accessing its portfolio of 200 games and franchises – such as Asteroids, Centipede, Missile Command and Pong – to create new content for VCS and other platforms.
The first new issues are expected to arrive in the current fiscal year, which ends on March 31, 2022.
