Earlier this week, Nintendo introduced it will be decreasing the value of the bottom mannequin Swap to £259/€269 throughout Europe, forward of the OLED mannequin launch on October eighth.
When you occur to be positioned within the US and have been hoping for one thing related, it appears this would possibly not be taking place. Axios Gaming publication co-author, Stephen Totilo, has been in touch with Nintendo of America, and has been knowledgeable there will be no value modifications taking place on this market.
Nintendo tells me yesterday’s Swap value drop was only for Europe (and the UK): “The commerce value adjustment is for the European area solely. There aren’t any plans to vary the Producer’s Prompt Retail Worth for any Nintendo Swap mannequin within the U.S.”
So, if you happen to have been hoping to select up a base mannequin Swap at a lower cost on this area, do not count on to see any official value cuts any time quickly. Though some would possibly take into account the asking value a bit a lot for the unique system, gross sales of the system are nonetheless going robust. You’ll be able to decide up an authentic mannequin for $299.99 or a Lite for $199.99.
On a considerably associated notice, Nintendo has launched a brand new Swap firmware replace in preparation for the discharge of the OLED mannequin. Had been you hoping for an authentic mannequin value lower within the US? Inform us beneath.
