The thing with Switch is that Nintendo can afford to parry the current inflation (while still making a profit) while the others have raised the prices (outside of US). So in effect we might actually/are seeing and price drop of the Switch currently by the means of Nintendo keeping the price at the same price point. 

Just doesn't have the same feeling as a nice good fat $50-$100 price drop

Illogically, we industry watchers need to see that actual $ change to feel like we are in a price change environment.  Realistically (and psychologically), for end consumers as a whole group, inflationary factors ARE the price difference we talk about.

No but (outside of US) you feel it when Switch stays the same price while the competition raises the price $100-$150

EDIT:// Over here the PS5 went from $707 to $834 that is a $127 price increase (all prices ar including VAT)

At this point, we'll all have to believe the Japanese market supports the whole Asian continent. 

Makes me wonder how many consoles are actually really in the hand of Japanese homes ?

I wonder how many other systems have had a 400k+ week outside of the holiday period when over 5.5 years old. It wouldn't surprise me if the Switch is the only one so far.

That's a good question. I suspect the X360 may have done it during the Kinect surge.

Maybe the DS hit 400k especially when BW released? That would actually be closer to the 6 year mark.

I checked and the Kinect was released during the holiday period and the DS didn't do it when that released so the only other one I can think of that might've done it is the Gameboy with its absurdly long lifespan.

Realistically, Malaysia, Singapore, Indonesia, Thailand, etc probably get a huge chunk if not all their systems from Japan. Our countries are so small we have to import, plus the imports are super cheap. For example, Shopee.com is the biggest online retailer here and most of their products come from China, Japan, Thailand, etc just depends on what your buying and where it's manufactured.

Late to the potential party, but for the first time I am starting to think the Switch could catch the DS and ps2...

It really just depends on when you think Nintendo will release the follow up. If you’re like many who think it won’t be until late 2024 or early 2025 then it’s almost a done deal. If you think Nintendo will release a new system in 2023 (like many YouTubers) then it probably falls pretty short. 

Given the market, the current success of the Switch, the difficulty in acquiring parts, and the fact that Switch 2023 looks stacked with great games, I just don’t see Nintendo undermining their own success with a premature rollout of the next system. For once they seem to control their own destiny regarding their next system, which is just crazy after being on their heels for 20 years. 



There is no way Nintendo will launch a system in 2023 with MK8 and Splatoon 3 having support for 1-2 years unless it is fully compatible with it. And with that, i feel like it might just be considered part of the Switch family of system instead of a full on new model and will just replace it overtime like the Gameboy and Gameboy Color.

I just have the feeling that, with what Nintendo as been hinting at with longer lifecycle, they seem to be going towards a new generational model closer to Phones than past consoles. Like they might just keep updating the Switch over the years and keeping the same library and NSO service, adding some features and functionalities exclusive to the new models. It would only be hard to market which console can play which game eventually.
