The Wall Street Journal is reporting that Nintendo is desperately trying to ramp up production for the Nintendo Switch due to fervent demand for the system. This means they are battling huge firms such as Apple for production parts. However the fight may not end well for Nintendo because rivals such as Apple can offer better terms and issue larger orders than the Kyoto-based company.
“Analysts say rivals for the sought-after parts can often offer better terms than Nintendo. Makers of data-center servers tend to use newer and higher-margin components, while smartphone makers issue larger orders than Nintendo.”
