Nintendo has announced that shipments of the Nintendo Switch OLED have been delayed due to the global chip shortage. The company says that it expects to start shipping the console again in September.
The Nintendo Switch OLED was released in October 2021, and it was met with positive reviews. The console features a larger OLED screen, improved speakers, and a wider kickstand. However, the console has been in short supply since its release, due to the global chip shortage.
The chip shortage has affected the production of a wide range of electronic devices, including cars, computers, and gaming consoles. Nintendo is not the only company that has been affected by the shortage. Sony has also delayed the release of its PlayStation 5 console, and Microsoft has delayed the release of its Xbox Series X console.
The chip shortage is expected to continue for several more months. This means that gamers may have to wait a while longer to get their hands on the Nintendo Switch OLED. However, Nintendo says that it is working to increase production of the console, and it expects to have more units available in the coming months.
