They'll have both anyway.
Model revisions are simply good for business. No two ways around it.
Next fiscal year they need to move 14-15 million Switch systems no questions asked at least if its going to have any shot at 100 mill within a reasonable time frame.
There will be a new Switch model next year, maybe even two (ala New 3DS XL and New 3DS regular).
They are on track to sell 14-15 million this fiscal year. What would a price cut accomplish other than losing them money? The Wii was supposed to have remodels, but Nintendo never got around to it because it would have pulled resources away from production of the regular model. The Switch would have to maintain compatibility between console and rock, too. It seems like they accounted for this by focusing on Joycons & accessories for new 'models.'
Just, why force a new model into the market if it isn't needed?
Possibly, I just think Switch will have a more difficult time in Europe/Australia due to it's price.
Well, 4 mil apiece in NA and JP looks pretty solid. So it would have to do reeaally poorly in Europe to wind up around 10 mil.
