Only a few days ago we told you about the incredible sales figures of the Switch, of the data that you put in front of a console that had not passed simply the milestone of 50 million units sold, but has done so while maintaining a trend that is amazing and absolutely stress. However, with the next-gen Microsoft and Sony are getting closer, many expect a response of some kind from Nintendo.
All the rumor pushed towards the announcement of a Switch Pro in the course of this year, but the president of the big N, Close Furukawa, has denied any rumor about throwing further fuel on the fire of those who see the company definitely too far back from the technical point of view.
For the past several years Nintendo is “fighting” a battle that is different from that of PlayStation and Xbox, and since the announcement of the Switch, in many of which stressed an undeniable backwardness from the point of view of the power and hardware capabilities of the console. During the past days, the renowned Financial Times has further posted the dose coming to talk about obsolescence.
“The Switch, which in march will turn off 3 candles, is teetering on the edge of becoming obsolete. The competition has been launching smartphones and the new console with feature of the latest generation, while the cloud gaming will present new challenges to the entire industry.”
In other words, the Financial Times provides a period which is not simple for the shareholders of Nintendo, and in this sense the mobile market or the chinese will not be enough to improve the situation. “With no console planned for this year, shares of Nintendo seem to be expensive. For investors it is time to seek opportunities elsewhere”.
Beyond the purely financial, what do you think of the words of the Financial Times?The Switch is really to become too obsolete for the good of Nintendo and its fans, or you will not be in any way a problem even with the launch of the PS5 and Xbox Series X?
