tokio - Nintendo has great trouble getting parts for the Switch. According to The Wall Street Journal, the demand for electronics is simply too big. Especially smartphone makers would 'block the Japanese gamereus'.
In particular, displays, vibrators and flash storage can not be dragged. One of the suppliers who can hardly answer the question is Toshiba. Nintendo buys its storage chips, thus saving it in the same pond as, for example, Apple. Saillant to Toshiba's flash division is that Apple wants to take a majority stake or even take over. The iPhonemaker wants to prevent new technologies from coming into the hands of competitors.
With the Switch, Nintendo has an old-fashioned power pack. The game computer is popular and the Japanese expect only 10 million to sell this year. More capacity at the suppliers could still make those figures according to Nintendo double.
