    I know Nintendo wouldn't want to shoot themselves in the foot because of low stock(*looks at NES classic*) at least not after the failure of the Wii U. However, do you guys think they will hold back units now so they can sell more for the holidays? If so, do you think this will do more to hurt them or help them?

    Probably not, but hard to know. If they've done it before, guess it's not unheard of to do it again. Create a faux demand to drum up interest but I'd bet it turns others off as well.

    I don't think they will hold back anything. 😃 if a customer wants to buy something, I'll do everything I can to get it to them.

    The only company I know about which purposefully held back stock was 'OnePlus' with their OnePlus 1 and 2. Hopefully they can ramp up production in the next few weeks. It's a really awesome product! 😃

    Most probably. Those are so rare!

    I doubt they'd intentionally hold back stock, there's little evidence that actually drives up demand for a consumer item like the Switch, and it prevents them from making actual sales. Plus, all recent news is that they're producing the consoles as fast as they can! https://www.theverge.com/2017/5/28/1...duction-gaming
