Just because MS and Sony are terrible at managing their own finance so they had to launch ps4/xbox 1 at loss doesn't mean Nintendo have to pretend that they are the same level as those two and selling Switch at loss. Nintendo is a master of managing their own finance and budget, no reason for them to dig the same hole as the others.

Yeah, whatever, won't lose my time discussing with you.

More like you don't have any legit point to argue back because what i said is too true?

So joy cons are compatible for tabletop mode but yet i don't see that stander attachment like the OG switch.
Any chance that they will make an individual stander like that one for the wii u gamepad?

Maybe the OG Switch ones will still work for it? 



Pocky Lover Boy!

Nope. Because of reasons that if I said I would get moderated.

The dock and HDMI cable are "pennies" in the cost.

The docks that cost pennies end up costing $300 when they brick the system.

Don't Play Stationary 4 ever. Switch!

Not sure I follow you.

What I think you may be talking is about using non-original options, and that isn't what I'm talking about. What I'm saying is that the dock for Switch cost Nintendo very cheap.

Does the Switch dock cost Nintendo less than the $60 Sony and MS charge to allow online multiplayer?

(I thought PS4 and XB1 both sold at a profit this gen https://www.techinsights.com/blog/playstation-4-vs-xbox-one-teardown-comparison)

Yes it does, and yes both Sony and MS are greedy on their charging of multiplayer (but not sure why you are asking since Nintendo isn't doing much better on charging for online are they?)

PS4 and X1 sold for a loss at the start of the gen. Sony said they broke even with one game and PS+ sold with a console. That is were the 50 loss per HW assumption comes from (there is no precise and official loss per HW).

Selling HW at a loss at the start of the generation is a strategy used for over 20 years on console world and have nothing to do with not being able to manage own finances or HW being undesireable.

Oh? Zelda BOTW need to sell only 2 million copies to be success. Call me when there is an open world game from Sony on ps4 which also only need to sell 2 mil.

And whatever MS and Sony's strategy is, they still had to accept the lost when launching ps4/xbox 1 at first, Nintendo didn't need to follow suit when they launching Switch, that mean their strategy and their money management skills are superior compared to them.



Just want to point out that the Switch had shortages for, what, the first six months of its life? And iirc was still supply constrained to some extant for the first year?
Lowering the opening price would not have improved sales when you're already selling all of your available stock.
