My scenario is they would still keep the Vanilla Switch at same price as always, it will sell another 4 to 6 years I predict the Oled would be omitted before vanilla Switch.

If anything I could see the OLED dropping to $300 in a years time and replacing the regular Switch model. If the regular Switch model remains in production I see its price dropping to $250 and Switch Lite to $170 or $180.

I would like that , But I have no faith in Nintendo to do that , they did on WII U launch because it was hemorrhaging Nintendo , vanilla Switch will not hemorrhage .



Cute and honest Sega Saturn fan, also noone should buy Sega grrrr, Sega for life.

I don't see them dropping the regular Switch without dropping the price of the OLED.

With PS4 sales dropping a lot faster than anyone expected, thoughts on dropping the "PS4 and Xbox One vs PS3 and Xbox 360" and "PS4 vs DS in Europe" comparison articles?

Sales comparisons only make sense as long as at least one of the involved consoles still sells an appreciable amount of units each month. That not being the case anymore in the above examples, it wouldn't be a loss to see these charts being gone for good.



Legend11 correctly predicted that GTA IV (360+PS3) would outsell SSBB. I was wrong.

I forget, to what extent are these comparisons foregone conclusions at this point? I remember the former being a close call.



Bet with Liquidlaser: I say PS5 and Xbox Series will sell more than 56 million combined by the end of 2023.

PS4 and Xbox One need to sell a little over 6 million to pass the PS3 and Xbox 360. PS4 in Europe needs to sell a bit over 3 million to pass the DS.

PS4 will almost certainly fall short of DS in Europe then. As for PS4/Xbone vs PS360, it definitely looks unlikely the former will prevail, but not impossible.

The latter would make sense to be dropped since the gap isn't gonna move much anymore though for the former I'd suggest keeping it for at least a few more months since 360 and PS3 will get close to overtaking soon.
