I’ll make it short, most of the times large companies know what they are doing, money is the motivator and innovation is a nice byproduct of their operations. Nintendo has been an innovating gaming company for a long time but sometimes their decisions make me shake my head in disapproval. Recently they announced the Switch Lite and its color scheme options. Me being a fan of their products couldn’t help but notice how insipid the new choices look.
So I see this as a two stage sales technique, first sell the product to the public based on its reputation and functionality then sell it again at a later date with the aesthetics the public actually wants.
So I added the colors that are NOT available for sale because that would make too much sense.
