The all-new Nintendo Switch is currently the fastest selling gaming console in the market at the moment but this is not expected to last until next year. According to Nintendo, they won’t be able to feed the demand for the Switch due to parts being scarce.
Nintendo revealed that the Switch is already on track to pursue 20 million units sold by 2018 but they now realized an issue with parts supply that can hinder on the console’s growth. The developer explained that three core parts on the Switch are facing limited supplies and they are the NAND flash-memory chips that store data, liquid-crystal displays and the tiny motors inside the handheld machine.
These three parts are finding it hard to meet the Switch production output, especially when the smartphone industry are said to be relying on the same parts. The word is that the products from Apple, Samsung, LG, HTC and many others are all competing to get their volume orders delivered and this is where the Switch is finding it hard to compete with.
Nintendo concluded by saying that they are looking at ways to resolve the supply issue and hope that it won’t have a bad effect on the Switch’s sales volume goals.
