Nintendo NX Will Be Cost Around $300
Nintendo has traditionally offered its consoles at lower prices than the competition – for example, the Nintendo DS cost only £99.99 at launch, while the Wii was just £179.99, despite the breakthrough technology it offered. That could all be about to change, though.
CEO Tatsumi Kimishima recently revealed to investors that the Nintendo NX will not be made at a loss, having learned from the Wii U. “When Wii U was launched, the yen was very strong. I am assuming that situation will not repeat itself. Selling at a loss at launch would not support the business, so we are keeping that mind in developing NX.”
That, plus the fact the NX is rumoured to be as powerful as a PS4, suggests it won’t come cheap. So whereas we might have previously speculated the NX will cost around the £200 mark, we could see it edge closer to £300.
