So according to a report to Bloomberg, Nintendo is actually planning to INCREASE Switch production in 2023 since demand is still supposedly high and that semiconductor shortages lowered Nintendo's sales in 2022.
I find it hard to believe that Nintendo is still stating that shortages are still the reason the Switch is dropping in sales in 2022/2023. In the U.S I see Switch's everywhere and you could get a switch with no problem, idk how the shortages are in Europe & Japan but based on what I've been hearing there isn't a dire shortage situation in those areas either, and I dont get how the Switch still in 2023 is dealing with shortages when its been the console more notoriously in more stock compared to Xbox/PS even in 2020/21 when the chip shortage was at its worse, even the PS5/SX are becoming readily available in 2023, seems odd Switch is still dealing with shortages. I guess its probably the ROTW dealing with the shortages the most.
So if this report is true, many of us could be wrong in thinking that sales dropped to 19M cause of demand.
