  1. With the PS5 being to sell as well as it is with it’s higher price, it makes me wonder if Nintendo will aim for the $300 again mark with the Switch 2 or try to push for more power and release a $500 system with the Switch Lite 2 being $400. Guess we won’t know till 2025

  2. Actually PS5 is number 1 in revenue because is more expensive, you should’ve added that in the article, lol.
