Among Us collector's editions announced for PS5, Xbox Series, PS4, Xbox One, and Switch

Gematsu 07 July, 2021 - 09:14pm

Publisher Maximum Games and developer Innersloth will release three different Collector’s Editions of Among Us for PlayStation 5, Xbox Series, PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and Switch at retail later in 2021, the companies announced.

Here is an overview of each edition, via Maximum Games:

Crewmate Edition ($29.99)

Impostor Edition ($49.99)

Ejected Edition ($89.99)

And here is an overview of the game:

Join your Crewmates in a multiplayer game of teamwork and betrayal!

Play online with four-to-15 players as you attempt to hold your spaceship together and return to civilization. But beware—there may be an alien Impostor aboard!

One or more of your Crewmates has been replaced with dangerous shapeshifters—Impostors. Their goal is to eliminate the rest of the crew before the ship reaches home. The Impostors will sabotage the ship, sneak through vents, deceive, and frame others to remain anonymous and kill off the crew.

When the game begins, players stay quiet and try to complete their task… until the Impostor strikes! Once a body is reported or someone suspects something, the surviving crew openly debate who could be Impostors and possibly eject a crew member from the game. Meanwhile, the Impostors try to pretend they’re Crewmates and confuse everyone! If Impostors remain after the crew votes, everyone goes back to maintaining the ship until another body is found. If all Impostors are eliminated or the Crewmates complete all their tasks, the crew wins!

You don't need to buy the Nintendo Switch OLED to get its upgraded TV dock

CNET 07 July, 2021 - 09:14pm

You'll be able to get at least one of those new features without shelling out $350 for a new Nintendo Switch. The new Ethernet-equipped TV dock is fully compatible with the original Nintendo Switch -- and according to a report from Digital Trends and confirmed by Nintendo to CNET, it will be available to buy separately.

"The white dock and black dock will be sold separately (no HDMI cable, no AC adapter, not in a package) on the Nintendo online store," Nintendo said in a statement. "It will not be sold at retail."

Entertain your brain with the coolest news from streaming to superheroes, memes to video games.

It's a minor upgrade, but the new dock's hardwired Ethernet port could make a difference to Switch owners who mainline online multiplayer games -- nothing ruins a game of Super Smash Bros. Ultimate like finicky Wi-Fi. The updated dock also looks a little nicer, with slightly rounded corners and a white option.

Nintendo didn't say how much the new dock would cost, but it currently sells the original Switch dock for $59.99 on the Nintendo online store.

The new Nintendo Switch dock isn't the only way to add Ethernet support to the original Switch: The console is compatible with most generic USB Ethernet dongles, and there's already an officially licensed Nintendo Switch LAN adapter that sells for about $30. Still, if you want a taste of the upgraded Nintendo Switch OLED without replacing your original console, you'll have an option.

Where to pre-order the Nintendo Switch OLED

VG247 07 July, 2021 - 09:14pm

The Nintendo Switch OLED White features a shimmery white, nearly silver dock and Joy-Cons to match. On the other hand, the red/blue model looks almost just like the average Nintendo Switch. It comes with a black stand and a pair of red and blue Joy-Cons like its predecessor. The only difference might be the wider stand. We go further into what the Nintendo Switch OLED means for the future and how it compares to other consoles in our in-depth analysis.

Here’s the round-up of current listings for both the white and red/blue models. They might not be available for pre-order now, but they will be later.

It’s unclear exactly when the pre-orders will go live. Probably be in the next few weeks, considering the Nintendo Switch OLED launches on October 8, 2021.

Follow us on Twitter for news about the inevitable pre-order update. Before then, we’ll be sure to keep you entertained with glorious deals on games, entertainment, and technology. You can also check Jelly Deals for in-depth buyer’s guides and features that could help with your next purchase.

How Nintendo's approach to Switch OLED is smarter than what Sony did with the PS Vita

Notebookcheck.net 07 July, 2021 - 09:14pm

Two years later, however, Sony would launch a revised PS Vita model that dropped the OLED panel in favor of standard LCD. Sony had claimed at the time that its LCD panels could reach the image quality of OLED, but the downgrade was noticeable nonetheless by reviewers.

In retrospect, Sony likely discovered that OLED couldn't draw in as many new consumers as a cheaper price point. Thus, the manufacturer more likely ditched OLED to lower costs and increase market appeal even if it had meant a decrease in image quality.

Interestingly, Nintendo seems to be approaching OLED in the opposite direction as Sony. Instead of launching the Switch with OLED first and then dropping it for LCD several years later, the Switch would launch with LCD first and then OLED at a later date. Perhaps most importantly, Nintendo will continue to market the cheaper Switch Lite alongside the pricier Switch OLED to give users a choice of display technology instead of forcing new users onto just one option. We wouldn't call it the perfect mid-generation console update, but it definitely makes more sense than the mid-generation downgrade that Sony did with its handheld.

The new Switch OLED probably isn't what most hardcore fans were expecting especially since it carries no internal performance upgrades. Even so, it'll almost certainly still sell like hot cakes once it becomes available this October.
