Nintendo focusing on Switch rather than Black Friday

The Switch, among other Nintendo products, has had a hard time staying on the shelves, due to both high demand and a lack of supply.

It is instead focussing on meeting demand for the console, reported the Washington Post. Another batch of NES Classic consoles will be sold next year, said Nintendo. That marks third month that Nintendo has outsold Sony and Microsoft.

While Nintendo said it is going to do its best to have both consoles in stores, the flip side of that is that consumers shouldn't expect the company to offer much in the way of Black Friday deals that would seek to clear shelves.

"We are not discounting the Switch", Fils-Aimé said. Fils-Aimé also said that Nintendo is trying to "learn its lessons" from the NES Classic stock catastrophe of previous year by keeping retail outlets supplied with both the Switch and the company's newest retro console, the SNES Classic.

Nintendo also launched the SNES Classic, which will keep selling through 2018. So apart from a couple of bundles featuring cases themed to hit games "Super Mario Odyssey" and "Splatoon 2", there aren't additional holiday discounts from Nintendo.
