Nintendo NYC have tweeted that a limited amount of consoles will be able to be pre-ordered in store on January 13th.

The story is too old to be commented.

A limited amount of Switch consoles will be produced for launch worldwide. Even lower than Wii U.

Edit: Am I getting disagrees for reiterating what Nintendo CEO Tatsumi Kimishima said? Lmao some people's priorities are twisted.

You can just smell the scalping for this console. It's going to be priced quite low and limited.

Scalpers dream.

I will get mine. Got the amazon alert ready.

Scalping or flipping is lame. You gonna make $100 at the most for all that trouble. I make $100 in 3 hours of work.

If Nintendo pulls some BS they are just going to hurt game sales and too be honest they falsify productivity with Amiibos and the NES plug-n-play. I would honestly be pretty pissed if I couldn't walk into stores and get one. I am not going to buy one on Ebay for $1000 which is going to happen. That is horsepoo

I hate it when Nintendo does this. This nasty trend needs to stop ;)

Wow. Nintendo never learns.

Meanwhile Sony still can't put VRs on the shelves...Sony never learns.

It's going to be well over 2 million since that is their sales goal for March and given the many rumored release dates they either have 1 to 2 weeks to see that. Either way I'm going to be spamming the refresh on amazon page to grab that pre-order as soon as the stream starts just in case.

Just Nintendo being Nintendo.

I imagine that it's is a way to drive hype, but I can also see where they don't want to have 10,000 pre-orders from cons and non from retail as that would upset retailers to be cut out of the market.

The NES Classic is still hard to find, same with a bunch of Amiibo's when that craze was going on. Nintendo is weird company that makes weird decisions constantly. Don't be surprised if the Switch follows the recent trend when it comes to availability.

Nintendo has been doing this business practice since the NES days in the 80s

"Limited preorders" not "limited consoles units" on release day, they're gauging and generating interest at the same time, its how marketing works.
