Bloomberg have reported that Nintendo will release a cheaper model of the Switch “by the end of June”. The report also states that Nintendo will release an upgraded version of the Switch by the end of the year.
The cheaper model is likely to be targeted at gamers who predominantly use the consoles’ hand-held mode. This report substantiates previous speculation over a cheaper model, while also seemingly confirming that there will be an upgraded version of the Switch released by the end of the year.
Players should temper expectations for the upgraded version. The upgrades are likely to be a similar to the upgrades we have seen in the 3DS models. That is, minor upgrades which give slight improvement to performance, rather than a complete overhaul to bring the console closer to the power levels of the PS4 and Xbox One.
These have yet to be confirmed by Nintendo, thought Bloomberg did state that this will likely be confirmed very soon.
