1. Rumors were true about the Switch Lite
2. Rumors also say Switch Pro to be released closer to the end of the year
3. So the Old Switch's price should be even cheaper with time, especially once it's officially discontinued

Also, CA tax on massgenie

However, if you want this Switch and need it soon, this is actually a good price for a brand new Switch.

FWIW Nintendo has officially stated that there will be no Switch Pro this year.

Didn't know that, but didn't they also previously state that there was no Switch Lite as well?

In PR speak, they previous neither confirmed or denied that they were launching hardware this year. They said that they are always re-evaluating their hardware lineup.

Now they (Doug Bowser specifically) came out and specifically said no additional hardware.

Thanks for the info. I still don't 100% believe him though. If he did the same PR speak then it would hurt Switch and Switch Lite sales.

First, they filed for it but they don't know when they will actually start. And even when they do start. You won't know when buying if your switch has new or old hardware.

My assumption is that the new hardware for the original Switch will be shipped around the same time when the Switch Lite will be released in September.

Nintendo says a lot of things. They even said that the Switch isn't replacing the Wii U and that both consoles will be current.

Well a month later, Nintendo axed the Wii U.

If Nintendo was to confirm a Switch Pro, it would hurt their sales for the quarter since many folks would probably hold off buying a Switch till then.
