Nintendo’s Switch OLED Dock Can Now Be Purchased Separately
Nintendo has finally released the dock for its Nintendo Switch handheld-console hybrid that has an integrated screen. The dock can now be purchased separately for $90. According to reports, the dock has been sold out for a long time and GameStop has said that the dock has been their top-selling Switch item. The dock is an interesting piece of hardware.
It’s a peripheral that is used to connect the Switch to a television screen and is the only way to power the console in TV mode. The dock does not have a slot for a game card, but instead has an HDMI port, a USB-C port, and two USB-A ports to connect to a television and charge the console.
Nintendo has announced that their Nintendo Switch: Nintendo Switch Dock Set – AC Adapter, HDMI Cable, 2 Joy-Con Charging Dock will now be sold separately from the console. The Nintendo Switch: Nintendo Switch Dock Set – AC Adapter, HDMI Cable, 2 Joy-Con Charging Dock was previously sold exclusively through Nintendo’s online store and at select retailers.
Nintendo has been known for their consoles and handhelds for years, but surprisingly, their new product is somewhat of a peripheral. The Switch has been a big hit for Nintendo, with the console selling over a million units in March, and having the fourth-highest selling console of 2017. However, there is still a lot of room for improvement, and Nintendo has made the dock available separately.
The Nintendo Switch dock is a gadget that comes with the purchase of the Switch, allowing gamers to play the Switch on their TVs. The dock also powers the console, and connects the console to the TV. Nintendo is selling the dock separately for those who want to play the Switch in handheld mode, but want to play it on a TV. Nintendo’s dock will be available on its online store at a price of $89.99.
