Nintendo recently published its latest six month financial results briefing and it makes for quite interesting reading. One thing that stood out to us was the slide revealing the gameplay trends across Japan, the US and Europe in regards to how people actually use the Switch.
Predictably a large number of consumers use the Switch in both handheld mode and docked to a TV, however around 30% of users appear to mostly use the Switch in handheld mode. On the other hand slightly less than 20% of users play the Switch in docked mode for the majority of their gameplay time.
We wonder what the split is like between Japanese gamers and the West. Nonetheless it is quite interesting data and no doubt Nintendo will be thinking about this quite carefully when coming up with revised Switch hardware in the future. Would a bundle without a dock, for instance, be attractive to cost-conscious consumers?
