Nintendo: Production Getting Vamped Up
It’s a well known fact that the Nintendo Switch has been selling out across the board, despite launch issues that have tarnished it a bit in people’s eyes. The company has apparently sold up to 1.5 million units in the first week alone. Some people are so desperate for the console that they are willing to pay upscaled rates by third party sellers, though that’s always the case with new systems. A supply and demand market after all.
That said, the Wall Street Journal has reported that it looks like Nintendo is trying to meet the demand by doubling up on production.The numbers reported speak of a confidence on Nintendo’s part that their device will sell quite well.
Here’s a snippet of the Wall Street report: “In the fiscal year starting April 2017, assemblers under contract with Nintendo are now planning to manufacture 16 million or more Switches, up from an initial plan for eight million, said people briefed on the plans,”
This seems like a rather bold move on Nintendo’s part, given their last consoles rather lackluster performance on the market. They clearly think that they will do very well in the upcoming fiscal year, and that the minor performance bugs that they’ve been experiencing will be overlooked by all.
Admittedly it’s still too early to tell, and I am one of those who is hoping Nintendo will do well on the market. If only so investors will back them and hopefully we will see new types of games showing up on the market for them.
