Earlier today, the Nintendo Switch OLED was revealed, a new model of the console with a handful of improvements. As its name suggests, one of those changes from the base model is an OLED screen, which has prompted a number of comments from fans of the PlayStation Vita. That system released in 2011 and also boasted an OLED screen, leading fans of Sony's handheld to hold it up as the superior system on social media. Of course, Switch has gotten much stronger support from Nintendo than Vita ever did from Sony, but the system clearly still has a number of fans!

A lot of fans miss the Vita.

Sony's handheld did have an OLED first!
Forgive me for not being impressed by the Switch OLED, but the PS Vita I bought 9 years ago already had an OLED screen. pic.twitter.com/wb4rB9zUQ9— Chrisseh (Mean Lean Anxiety Machine) (@Chrissehcat) July 7, 2021
One company marketed it better, however.
I still have no idea why Sony didn't bother marketing the PS Vita remote play
Whoever was doing their PR back then has to be kicking themselves after seeing how the Switch is doing— john the the johnson ➐ (@asshead42069) July 6, 2021
Some would like to see Sony try it again.
I really wish Sony would try again with a handheld. The Vita (again imho) was better than the Switch in general, just poorly supported. I adored my Vita.— Dotaku (@DotakuTweets) July 6, 2021
Nintendo needs to be challenged in the portable space.
The announcement brought out a lot of console warriors.
The PS Vita had better graphics, shape, games and display than the Nintendo Switch since day one.— RevSPRTN (@revsprtn) July 6, 2021
