Nintendo won’t raise Switch prices, despite rising costs

Nintendo President Shuntaro Furukawa has said that Nintendo will not raise the price of the Nintendo Switch. In any other timeline, that wouldn’t be at all surprising. Console prices tend to come down over time – not up – but due to supply chain issues and other factors, manufacturing costs are actually going up these days for Nintendo. However, Nintendo will not pass these increased costs on to the consumer and will charge more.

Speaking to Nikkei (via NME), Furukawa said Nintendo wanted to avoid “pricing people” and wouldn’t raise the selling price of the Switch.
