UPDATE 2nd March 2017: Well, the day is almost upon us. The Nintendo Switch will be released in a matter of hours, so where’s the best place to get your hands on one at the very last minute? We’ve got you covered with our pre-order guide.
The Nintendo NX is no more. Long live the Nintendo Switch. After Nintendo’s recent presentation, we know that Nintendo’s new baby is a hybrid of handheld and TV gaming that will be released on March 3rd, 2017. The system lets you unplug and take games wherever you go. We’re rounding up the best pre-order prices right here, so read on.
Nintendo itself may be one of the last places you can get the Nintendo Switch at launch, available to order in both colours.
Amazon’s pre-order page is live, with both versions of the console priced up at the standard £279.99. The site is also offering a wealth of accessories and games, up for pre-order currently.
GAME’s Nintendo Switch page is live and offering the console in both forms – original grey and ‘neon’ – along with a whole host of accessories including the Pro Controller and more.
Tesco Direct is getting in on the action, too, with pre-orders for the grey edition of the Switch listed at £279.99.
ShopTo is taking pre-orders on the Grey edition of the Nintendo Switch for a marginally cheaper £279.85.
GameStop UK, which has recently moved its site over to GameStop IE, is listing the Switch in Grey only for a total of €319.99.
GameSeek was the first to offer up actual pre-orders for the Nintendo Switch, with a price of just under £200, which we now know was a very low projection on its part. This means, unfortunately, that they’ve had to stop taking pre-orders. It’s likely, that when pre-orders are enabled again, it’ll be at the regular £279.99 price.
Amazon’s pre-order page is live for $299.99, although at the time of writing the console is listed as ‘Currently Unavailable’.
GameStop US is taking pre-orders on both versions of the console for $299.99, with free shipping to boot.
Best Buy is currently taking pre-orders for both versions of the console for the usual $299.99.
Walmart is taking pre-orders for the slightly odd price of $299.96 right now.
