Recently, analysts at Bloomberg they stated that the new OLED model (which crippled i rumor on the “Pro“, For now) of Nintendo Switch boasted components capable of raising the price by only ten dollars on the base model. The figure instead rises to 50, compared to the console of 2017.
The Big N, contrary to the no-comments to which we have always become accustomed, has decided to speak officially about what was said in the report by Bloomberg. In a statement released on the Japanese Twitter profile dedicated to economic press releases, the Kyoto giant defined “incorrect”The report in question.
In addition, after the clarity on the OLED model, the company has also clarified the rumors on the Nintendo Switch Pro. In the latter case, however, we return to the more usual realm of no-comments. Let’s start from the beginning, reporting below a translation of the first post that has indirectly pointing the finger to Bloomberg.
A report dating back to July 15, 2021 (Japanese time zone) stated that the profit margin of the OLED model would have increased compared to the original Nintendo Switch. To ensure proper understanding between our shareholders and customers, we would like to clarify that this is an incorrect statement.
Previously, the Japanese giant preferred to deny the rumors circulating about the possibility of new hardware in 2019. The words of the president Shuntaro Furukawa at the time they explicitly alluded to how much a potential reveal would ruin the “surprise” to customers, and go against the interests of shareholders.
As the rumors die hard, the next tweet talked about the possibility of a hypothetical Nintendo Switch Pro. Talking about “no plans” is always cryptic when it comes to the gaming industry, but nevertheless the unusual transparency of the Big N has suffered. gave way to no comment so we know it.
We also want to clarify that we have just announced a new model coming in October 2021, and we have no plans to launch any other models at the moment.
