Nintendo revealed the company has no plans to raise Nintendo Switch prices
Following the recent pricing adjustments made by Sony across almost every country in the world, with the exception of the United States, the company has no intention of raising Nintendo Switch prices in any region, according to an official Nintendo statement. After the PS5’s price was raised, Nintendo affirmed that it has no plans to raise the cost of the Nintendo Switch. Because of inflation and worldwide supply problems that have impacted other industries, Nintendo Switch costs are not increasing. It has no intention of raising the cost of its Switch consoles in light of the recent global price rise for the PlayStation 5.
Nintendo has entered the debate over recent price rises for PlayStation 5s in several different areas. Xbox has swiftly said, like Nintendo, that there are currently no plans to increase prices for Series X or S anywhere in the world. Because Nintendo followed Microsoft’s example, there won’t be any price increases in the near future. Nintendo’s corporate chairman, Shuntaro Furukawa, continued to remark that while Nintendo has explicitly declared that it has no plans to raise the price of any of its devices, merchants always set the ultimate price.
The full statement from Nintendo contains the quotation from company president Shuntaro Furukawa from the June annual general meeting and reiterates that the business’s prices will remain the same for the time being. According to company president Shuntaro Furukawa in an interview from earlier this month, Nintendo intends to refrain from raising prices on the Switch in order to maintain the momentum in our overall business and prevent pricing people out.
Nintendo’s company president, Shuntaro Furukawa stated during the firm’s 82nd annual general meeting with shareholders that Nintendo does not have a plan to increase the price of the Nintendo Switch any time soon, so that day does not appear to be coming any time soon for Nintendo fans. In any case, Nintendo assured EuroGamer that, despite the global economic crisis, Switch prices will not be raised.
Nintendo provided the official company statement on Nintendo in an interview with Eurogamer. The PlayStation 5 console’s price suddenly increased last week in a number of territories, including the UK, Europe, Japan, China, Australia, Mexico, and Canada. This was followed by a similar trend this week. However, it does indicate that Nintendo is feeling the effects of the global economy and is making preparations to help avert any further losses. This does not imply that prices would rise.
