Nintendo: "We are Not Discounting the Switch" For The Holiday Season

Adjust Comment Print

You can find plenty of great deals on Black Friday, on all kinds of items, but sadly not everything can be found at a discount. The focus will be on having enough supply at retail stores, according to Nintendo's Fils-Aime. If you've been meaning to pick up Nintendo's gaming console for instance, you will probably be sad to hear that a Nintendo Switch Black Friday discount is not happening. While the console is much easier to come by these days, with the Christmas shopping season approaching you know that stockrooms are going to start emptying out.

Nintendo of America President Reggie Fils-Aime said in a recent interview that the company will prepare more Switch and SNES Classic units for the coming holidays.

Cavs beat Pistons for 5th straight win
There were a lot of good things tonight that felt like or looked like the stuff we're capable of out there on the floor. The Cavs were always in control against a Pistons team who had started the game with an impressive 11-5 record.

A strong supply of Nintendo Switches will undoubtedly be welcome during the holiday season.

In other Nintendo news, the sandbox RPG title, Portal Knights has been announced to release on the Switch. At the time, many prospective gamers wanted to get their hands on a throwback NES Classic but were frustrated when they realized that the company has trouble filling up orders and keeping up with the demand. (It is making a comeback next year.) With the SNES Classic launch, Nintendo has both increased its supply and promised to keep selling the console into 2018. The Switch will see some more bundles with games like Super Mario Odyssey and Splatoon 2, which would make for top tier gifts this season, even without a insane discount.
