Nintendo will be looking for a lot in the new Switch model

It is estimated that the manufacturing cost of the new Switch model will increase by just ten dollars.

Last week, Nintendo announced the new OLED display model of the Switch, which ultimately brought less novelty than expected. The Kyoto manufacturer, however, has not refined the price gun, as the console, which goes on sale on October 8, will cost $ 350, which is $ 50 more expensive than the standard packaging available since 2017.

A Bloomberg Takashi Mochizuki reported that the cost of manufacturing the new model would no longer increase so dramatically: the paper estimates the new display will cost $ 3-5 per unit, while 32GB of extra storage will cost $ 3.5 for Nintendo, Ethernet and a dock with a connector will add “a few dollars” to the grand total, meaning the new machine will be roughly $ 10 extra for the manufacturer.

This is also interesting because Nintendo – facing the basics of the console market – has been selling the Switch, now more than four years old (with an initial estimate of $ 260 of the base model) at a good margin from the start, which is unbroken in popularity, so the price nor even had to be reduced.
