Well... Pokemon. To capitalize on gen 8 they NEED a cheaper SKU.
None of the cheaper skus have sold well. So I have no idea how this notion came about. The 2ds/new 2ds were all flops.
In fact, 3ds XL sold best. That is more expensive.
This isn’t uniquely Nintendo. iPhone 5C and all the budget iPhones were all flops. Same with Samsuang... tho if you lump all the 100 budget phones that might get close to 1 single model of their premium galaxy phones.
How much has the PS4 slim sold in comparison to the pro? Does anyone know?
Although with that said, a revamped handheld only model WITH IMPROVEMENTS would sell. Like the DS Lite. People keep forgetting that the DS Lite was not a budget version of the DS. The OG DS was already discounted before the DS lite launched.
DS lite launched at EXACLTY at the same price as the OG DS. It was basically the DS but much better with better screen, better design and more battery life.
The switch revision will be the same.
