Nintendo Switch

One of the most anticipated gadgets of this year is the Nintendo Switch, and we’re slowly inching closer towards its March release. Ahead of that though, we have received information that its price will be set at $250. This value is not far from what the original PS4 and Xbox One units are selling at right now.

January 12 is when we’re hoping to get an official confirmation on the price, as that’s the date on which Nintendo is scheduled to hold a special event. The next day, the Japanese giant will be giving us a detailed look at the games which are being developed for the Switch console.

A financial newspaper from Japan, named Nikkei, has made it known that the newest hardware offering from Nintendo will have its price set at JPY 25000 in its home country. That value translates into around $212, but it will most definitely get rounded off to $250 due to various reasons.
