The Nintendo Switch game console costs about $257 for Nintendo to build, according to a report by Japanese teardown firm. That’s pretty close to the console’s retail price of $300, and it leaves very little margin for Nintendo, considering that the retailers also get a profit margin. While Nintendo may still make money, it is moving closer to the razor and razor blade model.
