Cash in on fans: Nintendo Switch OLED has risen significantly more than it should have



Nintendo’s decision to raise the price of its recently announced Nintendo Switch OLED console has sparked controversy. Yes, the company uses an improved screen in this console, but the original console has been on sale for over four years and the rest of the components have fallen in price long ago.

Recall that the original Nintendo Switch is offered for $ 300, while the Nintendo Switch OLED will cost $ 350. According to Bloomberg, the new game console has risen in price much more than it should have: the cost of new components was several times less than the price difference.

Yes, in the last generation, Sony and Microsoft have raised prices for new revisions of the PlayStation 4 Pro and Xbox One X consoles that offered improved performance. However, the Nintendo Switch OLED did not receive a new platform or more RAM.

According to Yoshio Tamura, co-founder of industry research firm DSCC, the new Switch’s 7-inch OLED Display from Samsung Display costs between $ 3 and $ 5 apiece. According to Omdia, the increase in internal storage to 64GB cost Nintendo another $ 3.50. A couple more dollars will add a new console stand and LAN port.

It turns out that costs have increased by $ 10, and the price of the console has increased by $ 50. Nintendo launches Nintendo Switch OLED with a view to generating additional revenue.

A Nintendo spokesman declined to comment.
