Nintendo boosts Switch production

Via Digital Trends (and Gamespot), news that Nintendo plans to boost Switch production to 2 million units per month. From the piece:

However, as is often the case with Nintendo products, the company is having trouble meeting demand. In order to address this issue, Nintendo is increasing production of the Switch, Gamespot reported. The company is hoping to produce two million units per month in order to meet demand and satisfy its target production numbers.

The Switch has been a great success for Nintendo, though I have to admit I’ve often wondered if their production problems have more to do with artificialness rather poor planning. They have been making consumer electronics for nearly 40 years at this point.

I predicted they would ship 3 million units by the end of the year to North America, and they’re certainly on target to beat that.
