As GameStop is one the biggest retailers of video games in the USA it's a safe bet Sony will be rolling out this new scheme to other sellers, but at present we do not know their plans for other territories.

Nintendo's Switch is one of the more popular consoles the company has ever released.

Something to look forward to: Nintendo proved the doubters very wrong with the Switch.

The Wall Street Journal reports that Nintendo will launch not one but two new Nintendo Switch models in 2019.

Chhapaak First Look: Deepika Padukone Transforms Into Acid Attack Survivor Laxmi Agarwal
She plays the acid attack survivor, Laxmi Agarwal in the biopic which traces her entire journey and how she braved all odds. Together, Deepika and director Meghna Gulzar have raised everyone's expectations after releasing this still from the film.

A report by The Wall Street Journal (which can be read in full on Reddit) claims that Nintendo has an "enhanced" variant of the Switch in development, bolstered with features "targeted at avid videogamers". The other version is said to be a cheaper option for casual gamers that Nintendo sees as a successor to 3DS. Interesting enough, the publication has published a new report today that there won't actually be just one, but two different Switch consoles coming into the market soon. Getting a less expensive Switch on shelves by the end of the year could be huge for Nintendo, as Pokemon Sword and Shield will nearly certainly be system sellers when they launch later this year.

We've reached out to Nintendo for comment and will update this story if we hear back. Could it be Nintendo is going to increase the display size, the on-board storage, and offer us a higher performance Switch?

The WSJ say both new versions are expected to be announced at E3, "and possibly released a few months later" in time for both Christmas and the release of new games like Pokemon Sword & Shield and Animal Crossing.
