There have been huge reductions on both video game software and hardware throughout Black Friday and Cyber Monday. Analysts speaking to CNN believe that the Nintendo Switch system was among the most popular products on Black Friday itself citing the freshness of the console compared to the now ageing competition. The monthly NPD report for November should be very interesting to see once it is published.
The Switch was among most popular items sold on Black Friday, according to analysts who said that the gaming console benefited from aging competition.
Nintendo offered the same deal as it did last year: A Switch console and a free download of “Mario Kart 8” for $299, which saves customers about $60. Analysts at Wedbush Securities said that once again attracted shoppers because it was “likely a reflection of the competition feeling a bit long-in-the-tooth” ahead of newly refreshed devices expected in 2020.
