After Xbox’s reaction this morning to the PS5 price increase, Big N is speaking out. Should we fear that the Nintendo Switch will be sold more expensive in a few weeks?
Via an official press release, Big N specifies its plans for the Nintendo Switch. So, increase or no increase in the recommended retail price?
The Nintendo Switch remains at the same price
It is now certain, the Nintendo Switch will not see its price skyrocket following the announcement of the price increase of the PS5. A choice that therefore joins that of Microsoft for its Xbox Series X|S.
Although we cannot comment on pricing strategies, we currently have no intention of changing the price of our console due to inflation or increased supply costs in each country. We will always determine our future pricing strategies with caution.

A statement originally made last June and newly addressed to our colleagues at VGC. So that’s good news if you haven’t taken the plunge yet. Since this morning, the very beautiful Nintendo Switch OLED Splatoon 3 is on sale for €339.99. Be careful however, at this price, you only buy the console. The title, which is released on September 9, 2022, is sold separately. No code to be activated at launch is provided with this special pack.
