Nintendo Switch To Be Sold Out Through September, According To Analyst; Scorpio To Be Priced At $399
2017 is going to be a big year for consoles, with the release of the Nintendo Switch and Microsoft's Project Scorpio. The Switch definitely has the potential to do well on the market, and the console may be sold out through September, according to Wedbush Securities' analyst Michael Patcher.
According to Patcher, as reported by GamesIndustry, the Nintendo Switch price will be "just right", leading to high demand. If third party support ends up being big, demand will also remain high.
The Switch is sold out through September. The console looks fun, the price appears to be right, and I expect demand to be high. If there is a lot of third-party support (games, not merely labels), I think demand remains high.
Patcher also shared his predictions for Project Scorpio. The console will cost $399, the analysts predicts, and it may be not low enough, especially if the PlayStation 4 Pro prices drops next holiday season.
The Xbox Scorpio is priced at $399. This might not be low enough, particularly if PS4 Pro drops before holiday 2017, but Microsoft has to price competitively or fall farther behind.
Earlier this week, some new details regarding the Nintendo Switch specs have emerged online. According to a new report, the console's Tegra X1 chip will not run at fun potential, and the GPU will be downclocked in portable mode to preserve battery life.
