If you have to buy a Nintendo Switch, consider doing so now because in 2022, stocks are expected to drop.
A year later, the shortage of components is still felt as much, if not more. Indeed, while it is always difficult to find a PS5 or an Xbox Series X on store shelves, the shortage has now spread to the market for PCs, smartphones and other electronic products. The Nintendo Switch, if it has benefited from a reprieve, will also soon be affected by the situation.
Nintendo’s current president, Shuntaro Furukawa, has said that Nintendo Switch restocking may be slowed in 2022. At the moment, the drop in inventory is not significant. The company planned to deliver nearly 25.5 million consoles during the year, but revised its objectives downwards with the new figure of 24 million. Still a pretty good situation then, but not to be underestimated for the future.
“As I feared, we will not be able to manufacture the number of units we wanted” – Shuntaro Furukawa, president of Nintendo.
Indeed, for the holiday season, Nintendo had already reduced its production by about 20%. This new statement does not bode well. It is not for this reason, however, that the Nintendo Switch is in a bad situation. Indeed, she seems to have been the star of Christmas, while Shuntaro Furukawa clarified that she had sold very well at the end of the year. No wonder when we know that this is the only console that we can still find without looking too much.
