Nintendo’s Switch has taken yet another hit, with sources claiming that production of the console will be cut by 20%.
This means that purchasing a Nintendo Switch will grow more difficult in the coming months, which is poor news given the arrival of the Switch OLED.
The Nintendo Switch has proven to be a hugely successful product. The console (in both standard and Lite editions) was so successful that it has been the best-selling console for more than two years.
According to a report from Nikkei.com, those sales figures are expected to drop by around a fifth, or 20%, in the near future. In the aftermath of the scarcity of the component that has wracked the tech industry, Nintendo is facing a little problem. Things has gotten worse for Nintendo as the Switch OLED is replenished sold in nearly all outlets.
The COVID crisis of 2020/21, as we all know, had far-reaching consequences. COVID resulted in the temporary closure of electronic component factories, namely those that produce semiconductors.
With these shortages arose new issues for IT companies: stock fell as a result of a lack of semiconductors required to create their products.
Therefore, there is no doubt that there is going to be a shortage of Nintendo switches and getting one is definitely going to be hard.
