Japanese journal Nikkei always know a sum before things get official. They successfully called a Nintendo DSi, as good as pivotal sum of a 3DS and came flattering tighten to a Wii U’s launch cost too. Now, a paper has a ballpark cost for a Nintendo Switch as well.
According to them, Nintendo’s subsequent console will sell for ¥25,000 in Japan. That’s about $215 during today’s stream sell rate.
Take it with a pellet of salt for now: Nikki has a good lane record, though general pricing can be wily even for a best. Anyway, general pricing substantially won’t directly relate to a sell rate. Here’s an example: The Wii U sole for $299 during US launch, compared to ¥26,250, that indeed cost some-more than US models due to a clever Yen. So take a rumored Japanese cost as a ballpark figure. The Nintendo Switch will substantially sell for about $250 in a US.
Nintendo should strictly announce some-more sum about a console, including price, on Jan 13th. Hopefully, a prophecy here is accurate. Remember, a Switch will have to contest with descending Xbox One and PlayStation 4 prices too. So a cost sounds about right. We should know for certain really shortly during any rate.
