— Nintendo Enthusiast: Revenue generated by Nvidia Tegra chipsets has increased by $63 million since the Nintendo Switch launched back in March.
Hello, I'm the author of this news post. I used the term "apparently" to avoid any unintentional error. While I confirmed it with an industry analyst that Tegra revenue numbers did increase thanks to Switch sales, just wanted to make sure any trolls didn't have firepower since most people on this website (and others) love to only read headlines and never actually view the full stories.
Old writer here. I suggest using more assertive language in headlines, even when you need to hedge your bets. "Apparently" makes what it modifies seem shaky, or even illusive. An alternative would be "according to [this source]" or similar. I understand your point. I'm only questioning the methods used to address it.
@Cobra951: Appreciate the feedback. I'll be more mindful of my titles in future posts.
was revenue supposed to decline when you sell a product?
This article title is wrong and not what actually happened. It not apparently. It did boost the revenue by a lot.
The title isn't wrong, I made sure to write it out that way in order to avoid getting any flack from trolls that love to only read article headlines and not view the full story. That happens a lot on this website and others.
Step 1: Sell millions of chips to Nintendo Step 2: Nintendo sells millions of Switches to customers Step 3: Profits increase !?!? Who would have guessed that would be the outcome. Welcome to business 101 everyone !!
So Nvidia makes profit on already sold chips because Nintendo then sells the Switch and hands Nvidia more money? For what? Nintendo already paid for the chips. Business 101 my ass.
I know what you're saying and I'm not assuming the OP meant how you stated, but at the same time constant production after the initial shipment does follow the OP's statement.
Uh, what? The point is that the sales continue, so Nvidia keeps producing more chips for Nintendo because the Switch keeps selling. Continued sales of chips means Nvidia's profits go up.
Lol, you obviously have taken the whole point of my comment out of context and misconstrued it to fit your unwarranted objection! I suggest before coming with a rebuttal to a comment, you actually try to comprehend what the original comments goal was trying to achieve. Obviously sarcasm was something you missed growing up. And btw,I never said Nintendo hands them "more money" for the chips they already purchased from them. But like others have stated, more chips will be bought after the initial batch, so yes the more Switches Nintendo sells,the more chips they buy,which means more profit for Nividia !! Business101 is now in session!!
Well I mean, what else was it going to do?? Sell chips to Nintendo so they get more money. Duh.
In other news, water wet.
... How is this newsworthy and not common sense? Nvidia at the same time last year wouldn't have been mass selling Tegra chips to Nintendo. Since the Switch launched in March of course revenue would increase as that's a new source of revenue. 🤔
Hard to believe that selling millions of additional chips would somehow increase revenue!
Must be a slow nintendo news day... Its like the people at nintendo enthusiast need to praise anything imaginable pertaining to the switch. Its doing great, no need to fish for obvious accolades.
Nobody's "fishing for obvious accolades". Nvidia just released their financial report, so this information was unavaliable until now. The Nintendo Enthusiast team, like any other gaming journalism website, posts info on what's going on in the industry. There's always articles speaking positively about the PS4 and (to a slightly lesser extent) the Xbox One. Why is it suddenly an issue to have a news post about the Switch when there's positive info involved? Does seeing stories like this somehow hurt you? Get real, my friend.
Woah buddy calm down, in no way was i "hurt" by the article. Im just saying anyone with half a brain can assume if the Nintendo Switch is selling great = great sales on the chipsets (innards of the switch). What im saying if you claim these captain obvious articles are ok... Wheres the articles stating... "Nvidia Tegra sales are down since Nintendos recent supply issues continue". Neither 1 are needed! But since this one is ok in your eyes...
I really love it how high the level of salt/sarcasm is for this news story. Any article railing on either Nintendo, Microsoft, the Switch or Xbox One tends to get a lot of views and snarky comments on this website, but when positive info is posted then the number of comments drop drastically and most folks seem to try and make the posts look unnecessary and/or obvious. I really hope one day the bulk of the N4G community becomes self aware as to how utterly immature and unreasonable it is.
