so it has been confirmed that when 6.0 will roll out you will no longer be able to unlink ur nintendo account, is this a way to prevent getting banned or something else?

This is a growing misconception. You can still unlink your Nintendo Account on firmware 6.0; the only thing that is actually different is that you cannot unlink it from your console. Rather you will have to call Nintendo to unlink it for you.

Regardless, a linked Nintendo Account has 0 bearing on whether or not you get banned or not as bans are typically applied to the console not the account. And when the console gets banned, you have to call Nintendo to unlink it anyways. The only reason I see for unlinking the Nintendo Account is if you have any purchases you wish to hold onto in the unfortunate event that your console gets banned.

i would imagine if you ever plan to sell your switch, you wouldn't want it linked.

It's a bit different from what you guys are thinking. The account gets permanently linked to your Switch User.

You can still remove your User from the Switch, which would remove the Nintendo account. It seems like mostly a way of dealing with cloud saves and Nintendo's Online Subscription.

    @Julie_Pilgrim "very bright" is essentially pure white

    pure white doesn't show up all that much it's mainly when looking at a bright sky

    and if the clouds in the sky have slightly less definition to them because i turned on the contrast enhancer who cares

    Human vision is logarithmic, it's not linear. And nits doesn't tell the whole story of perceived brightness. OLED'S look brighter then LCD's even when both are set to the same nit values because of the higher contrast ratio on OLED's

    OLED's have a 3D look

    Charging port is more likely to fry up or battery fail before the display tbh lol

    "And nits doesn't tell the whole story of perceived brightness" it's not about perceived brightness it's about all HDR content in TV and movies being mastered for 1000 nits so it doesn't look right with anything lower, it's also about dynamic range

    "OLED's have a 3D look" no they don't lol

    As an owner of a OLED and you saying that you never seen an OLED I think I know what I'm talking about lol. I'm not talking about 3D as in 3D glasses. I'm talking about depth and pop in the picture

    I mean to be fair og vitas are still kicking and not many have suffered from pixel bleed and they're going on nearly 10 years

  • SG854 @ SG854:
    OLED's can get away with a lower peak brightness and still provide punchy HDR because of their contrast ratio. Like I said human vision is logarithmic. The higher the peak brightness the diminishing returns in perceived brightness.

  • SG854 @ SG854:
    @The Real Jdbye Oleds hit around 750 nits nowadays. The difference between a 1000 nit and a 750 nit isn't huge. It's only about a 4% increase in perceived brightness. Not huge at all. You'll need at least 2000 nit displays to notice a bigger difference.

  • SG854 @ SG854:
    Read this thread it explains it. 1000 nits is not a huge jump from 750 the LG OLEDs can hit. As I said human vision is non linear.
