Gamers are worried about the prices more than ever. Global inflation is hitting big companies such as Microsoft and Nintendo. While buying new gaming consoles is getting harder, companies are also having problems with sales and marketing. If you remember, Sony made a price hike for PlayStation 5 in the last months, and we’re scared to see the same for Xbox. We’re afraid to see new price hikes on the market, but fortunately, there is good news about the Nintendo Switch price. The company’s earnings are revealed to the investors, alongside the company answered a question about the Nintendo Switch consoles’ current pricing.
Nintendo Switch is competing in a different market bit; hand-consoles. Nintendo started competing with Steam Deck lately, but this competition doesn’t lay the pressure of decreasing the prices on Nintendo. The company has loyal fans, and it doesn’t seem like people will stop playing on Switch in a short period. So, is Nintendo planning a price hike? Here’s the answer.
Will Nintendo Switch Get a Price Hike?
Alongside the earnings of the company, we’re mostly wondering about the changes in the pricing company could make. As Nintendo authorities talked to Bloomberg, they don’t plan to make a price hike. But the statement also says that Nintendo monitors the changes in the market and the costs to deliver Switch consoles to gamers. We’re not getting a price hike now, though it doesn’t mean we won’t see a price hike. Things might get changed depending on the costs of Nintendo. The time will show that.
Not only for Nintendo, but we’re also scared of seeing a price hike for Xbox consoles. Microsoft’s latest announcements revealed that they’re facing cost problems with each console sale. Though the consoles are cheap as they could possibly be, the inflation is harming the manufacturers even more. We hope to see the same pricing for the consoles we enjoy playing.
