Nintendo Switch Could See Shortages During Holiday Season

Nintendo Switch Could See Shortages During Holiday Season

Nintendo Switch has been around for more than a seven months, but consumer demand for the console shows no signs of abating.

The main beneficiaries from a Switch shortage will be Sony and Microsoft.

Speaking during a Variety event earlier this week, Nintendo of America chief Reggie Fils-Amie said the console maker still hopes to sell 10 million units before the end of the year, but he seemed skeptical about the firm's production capabilities.

Coming up short on supply will be a double blow for Nintendo over the holidays. 'Are we going to have enough for the holiday?

Not long ago we reported that Nintendo is looking to "ramp up" Switch stock in preparation for the Holiday season.

The company promised at the time that its shipments would increase for the months of July and August as it was preparing to release "Splatoon 2" and its Switch console bundle. "We're doing everything we can to make sure everyone who wants to buy a Nintendo Switch system can do so", Nintendo told The Wall Street Journal. One of them is Blue's Journey, where you have to use your ability to shrink in size to pass through various stages.

The rumors about the "Fallout 4" Nintendo Switch version started at El Corte Inglés, a Spanish retail website, where the game was listed under the popular gaming console.

The internal memory of your Nintendo Switch is too right?

Some of these efforts involve Nintendo's mobile app business, which includes the "Super Mario Run" game.

Video game stories from other sites on the web. "All of those options are potentially on the table", he said. The company may even be considering jumping into the television and film market, though that statement was followed by, unfortunately, reminding the world of the live-action Super Mario Bros. movie. I'm sure Nintendo prefers this year's problem, but it may result in a lot of unhappy kids this Christmas.

Nintendo will instead focus on augmented reality (AR), because "the potential for AR is here and now" according to Fils-Aime.
