If you’ve been on the fence about buying a Nintendo Switch you might want to wait a little bit longer. Because it’s being reported that Switches are being sold out everywhere both online and in retail stores.
On the official Nintendo website they are completely out of stock. They even sold out of the refurbished ones that went on sale only a few days ago. Even most of Amazons based and lite switches are out of stock as well. Although they do have third parties selling them at a higher price.
As for BestBuy it’s very hit or miss if they have some at all. Some can be found if you buy it via curbside pickup. But for cases like New York they’re sold out and can’t find any in a 250 mile radius! And Target seems to be in the same boat as best buy it’s very hot and cold if they do have them too.
As for Gamestop they don’t have any normal switches, but they do have a few lites for shipping and curbside pickup. (Depending on where you are)
In a statement Nintendo said this about the shortages.
“Nintendo Switch hardware is selling out at various retail locations in the U.S., but more systems are on the way … we apologize for any inconvenience,”
So if you’re in the market to buy one either wait it out or be on the lookout because they are selling fast!
