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

Nintendo:

Black Friday has fast overtaken Boxing Day as the biggest sales day of the year, with people willing to beat the living hell out of each other up to get some money off a new TV.

If you were hoping to pick up a discounted Nintendo Switch on the holidays, you're not going to be able to get it since Nintendo stated that they will be not be discounting their latest hybrid console for the holiday season this year.

At least not one that's endorsed by Nintendo. Fils-Aimé also said that Nintendo is trying to "learn its lessons" from the NES Classic stock catastrophe of past year by keeping retail outlets supplied with both the Switch and the company's newest retro console, the SNES Classic.

It's not surprising, seeing how sought after the Switch has been since it was released back in March. (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.

Technology companies like Apple, Samsung, Microsoft and more are constantly finding new ways to improve their cutting-edge products, whether it's with stunning new hardware designs, useful software improvements, or by coming up with entirely new products we didn't even know we wanted. Meijer offers $30 off your next shopping trip with every Switch purchase, while Target says that it's ready to sell you $299.99 Nintendo Switch bundles although it's not clear what that means.

"We are not discounting the Switch", Fils-Aimé said.
