This week has been rather exciting for Nintendo Switch with its mountain of new information. Here at EloTalk, we have everything you need to know about the system and the confirmed list of games! The system will launch in North America, Europe, Japan and other territories. The whole system will retail for $299.99 (£279.99) and is available on March 3, 2017.
Among the information gathered up to this point, there are some things to consider. For one thing, the Joy-Con accessory included does not charge the system! Sold separately no less, a chargeable version of the controller will retail for $29.99. Couple that with the fact that no games will come with the system adds extra expenses some consumers may dislike. Finally, the system’s default internal memory is on the small side, meaning you will probably need to upgrade this aspect at some point.
That said, the Switch will come with the base console, a TV-connecting dock, left and right Joy-Cons, wrist straps and the Grip controller accessory. Essentially, the unit seems similar to a Wii U with smaller controllers but is more user-friendly. After all, the TV-connecting dock allows users to switch their leisure, living room experience to a portable one on the fly.
Switch Versus Investors
Apparently, investors are not terribly impressed with the Nintendo Switch. This could be due to various factors. Ultimately, the pressure is on for Nintendo to sell two million copies worldwide.
Currently, the share price has dropped by 6.35%, which then dropped an additional 1.75%. The end day price per share stands at $25.85, according to Bloomberg. Please note that with any investment, the market shares will rise and fall daily. Only the success (or failure) of the actual launch can determine which direction the market shares go.
There’s certainly a list of pros and cons for every console, and the Nintendo Switch is no different. When purchasing next-generation technology, always look at all information to make an informed decision.
Until next time.
