What's the reaction to the lack of Switch Black Friday sales

Forums - Nintendo Discussion - What's the reaction to the lack of Switch Black Friday sales

Say you have 5 million to sell. And we all know they will sell every single unit.

@ $300 = $1.5 billion.

@ $250 = $1.25 billion.

You just left a quarter billion dollars in revenue on the table for what purpose?

It's a shame as I'm looking to finally pick up a switch soon. Will have to wait till next year now. You can hardly blame Nintendo for not discounting it though. If it's selling like mad why reduce the cost?



Nothing to live for but I like it that way. 

Meh. It’s too early on and the device is selling well enough that there’s not really a need for holiday price cuts. Next year, definitely.

 I wouldn’t go that far. Switch is going to sell very well, no doubt, but every unit is a bit of a stretch. The device has been readily available at most retailers for months now. It’s passed it’s sold out days, and logically Nintendo is going to be putting out far more stock over the holidays than they did the rest of the year. I agree, no need for a price drop, but every unit sold? Very doubtful, unless Nintendo intentionally goes back to artificial demand.

The reaction? The Switch is going to sell just as good without them, so I don't see a negative reaction coming.

They are gonna sell as much as they can ship regardless so cutting the price wouldnt make any sense for them.

Thread shoulda ended here,

 

But there are some pretty good deals on software.

Anyone expecting deals for it were kinda crazy... even PS4 that had about 1 year in the market when got it BF and already had steady supply didn't get any significant deal for that BF.
Why would Switch even be considered for a BF deal?

Expected it. Why do Black Friday deals when it's still selling out quickly at normal price?

Exactly. I HIGHLY doubt Nintendo will have problems selling Switches at regular price.
