    End of the quote for now, there's more written in the article.

    If it turns bad, there is a slight chance we will be able to see a new Switch hardware revision. Either the displays will be made by a new manufacturer, a new type of display, or perhaps a less than normal quality display? Who knows at this point.

    Apple ditching the LCD displays for OLED displays could also mark a change on the fate of the company itself. Given that Nintendo has contracted enough for up to 10 million displays, and if the company bankrupts, we could be seeing an unprecedent lack of Switch hardware sales. Why? It takes a long while to get contracts ready, and production lines working to bring the sales back up to speed. Not just that, manufacturers have to compete with the highest bidders in order to finance itself. Nintendo here is just a drop in a bucket when it comes to who has the highest bids.

    Well...

    Good thing I have one I guess

    Edit: if they do bankrupt, expect to see a "Home only" Switch console with better cooling and a slight overclock for smoother gameplay

    Read this before. Nintendo needs to get it together, they aren't a green company, they are the big N so this is completely unacceptable.

    Stop producing limited quantities of products that people want to buy because this only ends up on sales that the scalpers will take, that and people won't trust/care about Nintendo then.

    The only reason Nintendo doesn't lose its fanbase is because of the popular, classic video game franchises otherwise they'd be history and no better than SEGA.

    I think there are enough alternatives for Nintendo to choose from.

    Switch with OLED panels pls

    It's always Nintendo who has trouble with this or that. A little too convenient.

    That shouldn't be an issue in this day and age, nor should it be something to even have to consider. Oh well.

    OLED is crisper and has beautiful blacks, though. That's why people like it

    The name doesn't matter, this isn't a fanboy community which everyone should just praise Nintendo. Nintendo does limited quantities on purpose for the whole supply & demand farce.

    Nintendo's becoming the boy who cried wolf one too many times.

    Eh, but the burn in risk, IDK, AMOLED would be better.

    On that same note, people on here consistently defend Sony and Microsoft as if they were infallible.

    What does Nintendo have to do with their third party suppliers facing financial issue? Really?

    You look for any excuse to preach your anti Nintendo shtick. I swear.

    Once again, you didn't understand what i was saying. I mean that you're going to hear a majority of Nintendo related news since this is primarily a Nintendo community. And besides, it was the Wall Street Journal that published this, not Nintendo... so how is Nintendo crying anything?...

    Haven't noticed that.

    You think I'm anti-Nintendo because I'm critical, I'm not anti-Nintendo because if I were then I wouldn't buy their shit.
