    Upgraded Switch model announced: Same price, battery life of 4.5 to 9 hours - Launches in August (Americas, Japan) and September (Others)

    RolStoppable said: Soundwave said: Price cuts haven't really ever stopped declining/aging Nintendo hardware sales past a short term boost. I don't think they have much interest in giving up the $300 price bracket either, they like the lucrative profit margins they get at that price point. The Lite model is basically a way for them to keep the base Switch at $300 for a long time,...

    Getting back to the actual Switch model, it wouldn't surprise me if Nintendo eventually "quietly" allows devs to take advantage of the extra performance, as there almost certainly is a boost due to the power savings. It means it may well be possible for developers to run docked mode performance portably now on this model. They could offer a "performance mode" for example that would really...

    I don't think the 3DS was really by design supposed to have a life cycle that long given its actual sales, but there wasn't dick all Nintendo could really do. The Wii U died prematurely and the Switch which would adopt the hybrid approach wouldn't be ready until 2017 ... there really wasn't much of a choice in the matter but to support the 3DS, even though its shipment numbers by 2016/17 were...

The problem with this set up is it doesn't allign with a 5-6 year product cycle which was intended for the NES/SNES (which had 100% 3rd party backing so Nintendo didn't have to carry the whole damn system on their...

    curl-6 said: There is no need for a "Switch Pro", and no need for a Switch successor before 2023 at the earliest. The market is clearly happy with the level of power the Switch offers. Graphics aren't what people are buying it for, nor are AAA multiplats, so the idea that it needs to be stronger and get PS5/Scarlet ports to stay relevant is simply wrong. Things can change in a...

Also, to the people who are thinking Switch 2 will launch in before 2023... Let's break it down.

It's a very minor change because the console still looks the same and the only noteworthy difference is longer battery life.

    The funny thing is this probably is a hardware upgrade if Nintendo allows devs to utilize it. Almost doubling the battery power doesn't randomly just get pulled out of their ass, it likely means the new Switch can run at near double the performance at the old battery envelope undocked, I wonder if some devs with ask Nintendo to be able to use that power mode. It also likely means it can hit...

    Nintendo Would Like To Deliver Legacy Platform Games "in some form"

    in Nintendo Discussion on 08 July 2019

    It'll be made available to people who subscribe monthly to Nintendo Online "Premium" (base level only gets you access to NES titles). Nintendo knows they stand to make more money from monthly revenue rather than selling a ROM once. There's still an N64 Classic to sell first too.  ...

    2020: The peek of the Switch?

    in Nintendo Discussion on 12 June 2019

    I think sales wise this fiscal year will be the peak. Breath of the Wild 2 is cool and all but if you're talking sales, like the majority of people who like Zelda own a Switch as BOTW is by far the best selling Zelda game already.  2020 will probably see a bit of a decline but still solid sales, 2021 will definitely likely show a downtrend in sales. ...
