Nintendo fans in Europe received a wonderful surprise yesterday, with the base model Nintendo Switch being the one that received a price drop within the region. This brought the console down to € 269.99 in Europe and £ 259.99 in the UK, lowering the price by € 60 and £ 20 in Europe and the UK, respectively.
However, fans in North America need not get their hopes up, as an insider says Nintendo has no plans to cut the price in the United States and Canada, as stated in a cheep.
Stephen Totilo, former editor-in-chief of Kotaku, claims to have insider sources on the subject and is fairly certain that there will be no price drop west of the Atlantic Ocean any time soon. This also leaves Australia and Japan out of the discount fun, which some may find surprising given that Nintendo has its roots in Japan. The base model of the Nintendo Switch is now priced even closer to that of the Nintendo Switch Lite as a budget console, while those in need of a larger screen and better storage capacity will gravitate towards the new OLED model of the Nintendo Switch.
Of course, Nintendo often claims that they “have no plans” to do something, which they then end up doing. Their plans are unknown, but for now, American consumers shouldn’t hold their breath.
