An interesting rumor is making the rounds concerning the Nintendo Switch game console. The console has been on the marketplace for about four and a half years and remains to sell for an equivalent price it debuted at. Typically, as consoles age, the pricing comes down, but that hasn’t happened for the Switch. However, which may change consistent with a replacement rumor.
We know in October, Nintendo features a Revised Version of the Switch coming to plug featuring an OLED panel for the screen. Consistent with this rumor, before the launch of the new model, Nintendo is getting to slash the worth of the current-generation Switch. The rumor claims pricing will go from €329 in France to €270. that might be approximately a $50 price-cutting within the US.
If this rumor is true, a price-cutting in France would likely mean a price cut altogether of Europe and similar price cuts within the US. The rumor source comes from a French Twitter account called Nintend Alerts, which reportedly features a reliable diary for rumors within the past. As of writing, Nintendo hasn’t officially confirmed a price cutting.
Reading into the rumor a touch more, if the worth is cut on the Nintendo Switch, the idea is that the Switch Lite should see an identical price cutting. The official launch date for the Switch OLED is October 8 and can have a retail price of $349.99. alongside the improved screen, it gets a far better stand and improved audio also as 64 gigabytes of storage.
Info Nintend’Alerts – La console Nintendo Switch devrait baisser à partir de lundi et se vendre autour de 270€. C’est la première baisse depuis la sortie en mars 2017.

We aren’t sure if Nintendo will still sell the current-generation Switch alongside the new OLED version, giving buyers options at different price points. Of course, having options would add up, but Nintendo may only want to clear stock of the old model before the launch.
