How COVID 19 affects Nintendo, Sony and MSFT


Switch sales have skyrocketed. The downside is they can't keep up with demand and obvious production issues. But they got a nice boost nonetheless.

Conversely, how many people are going to be able to afford a new gaming system in November) December? How many people who bought a Switch in February-June are even going to want a new system, even if they can afford one?

Timing actually works for Nintendo for a change. If they have a surprise big release like MK9....that could spell trouble for Sony and MSFT


You're assuming new console manufacturing delays will even allow the consoles to launch this year. PS5 / XBSX might be delayed to Holiday 2021 to avoid all this.
