Nintendo has taken an unusual step denial report that it brings in more profit than its new one OLED switch model. Last week, a report from Bloomberg citing industry analysts, they claim that the new model cost Nintendo only about $ 10 more per production, while the price of $ 350 is $ 50 higher than the previous model.
“A July 15, 2021 (JST) news report claimed that the profit margin of the Nintendo Switch (OLED model) will increase relative to the Nintendo Switch. To ensure proper understanding among our investors and customers, we want to make it clear to knowledge that the claim is incorrect, “the company said in a tweet.
Nintendo doesn’t react to rumors often, so it’s noticeable that he refuted this one. However, the report includes potential profits, and Nintendo specifically mentions “investors,” so it may have wanted to start with this for fiduciary reasons. If BloombergThe report was accurate, Nintendo would earn $ 40 more per Switch, which is a pretty significant increase. The OLED switch replaces the LED display on the original switch with a 7-inch 720p OLED screen and doubles the storage space to 64GB, adding an Ethernet port and an enhanced bracket.
Multiple reports he also pointed to the possibility of Nintendo launching another console, the Switch Pro, with state-of-the-art components and NVIDIA’s DLSS technology. However, Nintendo also refuted that rumor. “We also want to clarify that we have just announced that the Nintendo Switch (OLED model) will launch in October 2021 and that they do not currently plan to launch any other model,” Nintendo added below the tweet.
