During the 82nd annual general meeting of stockholders last June, Nintendo president Shuntaro Furukawa revealed that the company had no plans to raise prices. switch As a result of inflation. Now, after the PS5 increase announced yesterday, The Big N issued another statement where they again clarified their stance on the matter.
At the time, Furukawa commented on it:
“While we cannot comment on pricing strategies, we currently have no plans to change our hardware prices due to inflation or increases in acquisition costs in each of our countries. We will determine our future pricing strategy through careful and ongoing discussions.”
Now, via a shared statement to Eurogamer, Nintendo reaffirmed its position, Where they have indicated that they have no plans to raise the price of the Switch in any market. What was said about it was:
“While the final price for consumers is always determined by retailers, as Furukawa said, Nintendo has no plans to increase the retail price of its hardware.”
In this way, it is clear that Both Nintendo and Microsoft have no plans to raise the prices of their consoles, at least for now. Xbox Series X
I highly doubt the switch will increase in price. As we know, Nintendo does not lose money with the production of its consoles. While inflation is certainly a big issue within the company, it likely won’t be enough to fuel growth like the PS5.
