      Because it's available.

      Inflation is literally a bullshit invention created by those with stuff people want or need deciding they're gonna charge more for it. The "inflation" occurs when everyone in the supply chain tries to keep their profit margins after the price increase.

        Inflation occurs due to the interest rate meme

        Supply issue, you still either have to pay a scalper or wait and get lucky if you want a PS5
        Switch is pretty cheap and available everywhere, meanwhile the PS5's MSRP increased.
        And there isn't really a reason to get a PS5 right now, the big games still release on PS4 too so people can wait instead of paying a premium.

              The Wii was doing so well that rhetoric evolved to say that the 360 and PS3 weren't competing with it. Not because of a market segment difference, but the enormous gulf in sales making analysis of the thing almost not worth discussing in terms of the performance of consoles against one another. In this generation, it IS worth noting because of the Switch maintaining momentum in a time where consoles would typically wind down notably, outselling hardware that's two years into their lifecycles at its sixth year.

              Also, Nintendo wasn't ignored. The foregone conclusion was that the Wii would be something people had alongside their console of choice. PC was not a major talking point, as that was the last generation where consoles managed to at least launch with performance that personal computer owners in the market would not easily be able to match.

                The Switch is still not cheap and actually retails for the same cost as the Series S or 50 dollars more in the case of the OLED model. The much more expensive alternatives don't have much going for them. That's the problem. Even 3rd parties aren't jumping onto the current gen and sticking to it, meaning that the reasons to upgrade are almost nonexistent.

                Gen 7 WASN'T a huge gulf in sales overall though, not compared to previous generations anyway - Xbox 360 ended at 84m, PS3 at 87m, and Wii at 101m. Sony's previous victories were FAR larger margins, and so was the PS4. The real contention point isn't about Nintendo being "a different market" - it's just fanboys trying to change the rules of the numbers game whenever a Sony platform is in anything less than first place. It happened with the PS3, and it's happening again with the PS5 (this time with Sony themselves making the argument too).

                The biggest factor in the PS3 catching up wasn't exactly the Wii dying early, but Microsoft shooting itself in the foot with the Kinect and increasingly draconian policies.
                Then Don Mattrick being a colossal retard and doing it again with the Xbox One, coupled with Nintendo being clueless about why people didn't want a new Wii, effectively allowed Sony to take over the market unchallenged, at least until the Switch arrived.
                It's kind of a recurring thing at this point, Sony's biggest wins come from the competitors going full retarded.

                The PS3 actually had deceptively good momentum. It also was supported by high profile tentpole exclusives and major conference showings on a regular basis. They found their stride with the price cuts, devs getting better with the hardware, and their own major software options becoming more plentiful, varied and regular as things went on and MS dipped off of Xbox's experimental library to deliver Gears of War, Halo, and Forza without much else and perhaps at less regular intervals.

                There was also this:
                >During a recent interview with Japanese economic website Toyo Keizai, ever-charming Ken Kutaragi had this to say about Sony's goal for the PS3: "for consumers to think to themselves 'I will work more hours to buy one'. We want people to feel that they want it, irrespective of anything else."
                Not as bad as the answer from MS to always-online concerns, but it raised an eyebrow. The cost of production was estimated to be about 800 USD, so I imagine launching it any cheaper was not reasonable. It also was apparently the cheapest Blu-ray player on the market at the time- and a good one at that. Personally, I just wanted one because of MGS4.

                You aren't looking at the actual data, anon. It was immense. As this anon

                looking at the end of the generation it wasn't that large but if you look yearly until around the middle of the gen it was. the thing is that the Wii dropped hard suddenly and the PS3 took a while to catch up

                mentions, it was a fair bit into the generation where the Wii dropped off considerably and the other two slowly built toward it. Despite that major drop off, it still sat well above the competition.

                There are a lot of interesting stories that can be told about the data in that era. The PS3 actually was impressive in its time. Consider that it launched a year after the competition, at a price that was staggering and unsustainable, cost even more than that by large margin to produce on a per-unit basis, had a distinct, proprietary architecture that was hard to build for, and lost out an entire year's worth of software support from third parties, leaving the competition with a good lead in both hardware sales, mindshare, and software support. Despite these things, the PS3 managed to catch up and overcome that year's worth of deficit to claw up second place, which is commendable despite the major uphill climb the decisions they made that era caused.

                PS5 is different. Worse. Much, much worse. Remember 'nogaems' memes? PS3 had 7 exclusives on launch day. PS5 has had 4 in over two years, and hasn't had a new one in about a year and a half.

                I don't approve of the fanboys either.

    There are games you can play on the Switch. And it has two modes on top, so you can change from handheld to docked or th eother way depending on your mood instead of needing two consoles.

        They're probably having trouble with Nvidia. It tends to take Nintendo about 2 years to go from finished chip to final release with software ready. Orin is 5 years old at this point and too old to bother with. Nvidia planned Atlan for 2021 (which probably would've been perfect for Nintendo) but Nvidia fucked shit up hard and totally canned it and instead announced Thor with a fucking 2025 release date.
        Nintendo was probably banking on that being ready to work on and now they're waiting on Nvidia to cobble some shit together.

Industry shills seething that Nintendo is selling a console with 720p resolution and doesn't give a fuck about "muh high end hardware", so they try to gaslight Nintendo into thinking they should release a newer, more "modern" console. Nope. HD was fine in 720p, no reason to go above it.

    I imagine for your video game console that plays video games to be popular you need to have exclusive video games that you can only play on that specific game system. But hey what do I know?

      The PS2, 360, and PS4 proved otherwise. Really the biggest factor in a video game system's success is price. Video games are predominantly toys for children. Enthusiasts might, but parents aren't going to pay hundreds of dollars for a toy for their kids.

        If this was the case then Series S would be the best selling console since it came out but it isn't. The PS5 should have fallen off from a cliff after the price raise but it didn't. The reason is because exclusives matter but not in the way most people think. If a system gains traction among rabbid fans they will shill it for free until their dying breath (unless it is too expensive like the PS3 but even that was shilled later in the lifecycle). Look at the sales numbers of PS exclusives, they can barely sell to between 10- 15% of the userbase. Out of the 117m PS4 users not even 8 million bought Ghost of Tsushima. Meanwhile both Xbox and PS has Fifa, COD and such for the top sellers. These games make several times more alone than all the exclusives for a year combined. The overwhelming majority of the userbase buys these systems because for them it is what the cool kids have.

        As for the Switch the price and offerings just simply align too well. I would argue if it was much more expensive it would still sell.

                Rather than hoping 3rd parties stay blindly loyal.
                Unironically Nintento getting a rude awakening in the N64 era has wrought this beast as ALL 3rd party devs proved they were disloyal and flippant twits who can change loyalties in a second (which is good and bad for both nintendo/sony and the 3rd party dev), thus forced Nintendo to focus heavily inwards making their IPs incredibly strong.
                Their newest venture of 1bil yen in self investment is terrifying 3rd parties for good reasons anon.

Switch doesn't get a ton of games that every other platform gets and thus they have lower software sales. It also limits the number of games switch users actually can purchase so of course they all get Mario Kart.

                The NES mini launched about 5 months prior to the Switch and was a limited availability item for the holiday season, not a widely available platform of exceptional profit. The last known numbers were I think about 3.56 million units, which is in line with their decently selling first party games. Nintendo's financial surplus probably would've had them steady for a long, long, long time without making any money at all. The 3DS eventually did do well, yes.

                Clearly it wasn't any sort of stop gap when it sold for the MSRP of a single standard console game and cost far more per-unit in manufacturing. The top 7 Wii U first party games would have brought in more money. Probably the rest as well factoring manufacturing. There were also a number of games released that year from Nintendo with Paper Mario: Color Splash launching shortly prior to the NES mini.

            Expect the Switch does not have vastly shrter dev time.
            HZD came out in march 2017 anon, Pretty sure GoW (reboot) did as well. Or close enough.
            In 2017 Nintendo launched
            >Xenoblade2
            >Mario+Rabbids
            >BotW
            >Splatoon2
            in 2022 Sony put out HDZ: FW and GoW:R.
            Nintendo had Xenoblade3, Splatoon3, Mario+Rabbids2, BotW would have been out but got delayed a few months.
            By all rights Nintendo and Sony have roughly the same development times/cycles for their major premium games.
            Nintendo still puts out more games than Sony because they invest in themselves, invest in their IP, and their brand.
            >hurf derf well sony doesn't wah
            Literally not my problem.
            Literally not Nintendo's problem.
            Sony should NOT have made themselves so dependent on 3rd parties that they are acting like the potential of losing CoD will kill them.
            Sony deserves to fail to bad business decisions.
            In Short:
            Go suck an aids riddled dick. Homo.

              They are actually great value. $500 gets you PC performance these days. And considering the only exclusives left on PC are indies it's at best a sidecar platform specifically for emulation. Any old laptop will suffice.

    Scalping really isn't that big an issue anymore. You can tell just from looking on ebay. A lot of people are selling for barely over retail price, obviously because there isn't as much demand for scalped units anymore. Tons of people selling console+game for $600, that's a $40 profit margin. It's not the $800 for the console alone shit anymore.

            A laptop with similar specs is basically the same price though. Which kind of makes sense since the steam deck is pretty much just a laptop in a different form factor.

              You can buy a laptop with far better specs than a Deck for the same price, especially if you're picking the 512GB version. People who believe Valve is selling the thing at a loss drank too much of the "Gaben is the good guy" cool-aid and are clueless about what the cost of parts really is.
              The same goes for the chink devices. Just like phones, all of those things are sold with large profit margins because they can't further monetize it by selling software in a closed ecosystem, in the way Nintendo, Microsoft and Sony can. This is further exacerbated by the fact that production is very limited, meaning they can't really take advantage of savings from bulk orders in the millions.
              This is the biggest reason why Sony can put together a $499 system that came with a relatively high-end RDNA 2 GPU, SSD with speeds that weren't even available to consumers and high tier CPU and now sells them for a profit.
