GameStop announces that it'll have new Nintendo Switch units available to purchase in stores on August 15th, with a special promotion offering more if you trade in your older consoles.
Get one quickly tomorrow
Or don't, and just save your money for PS4 and XBox One games and consoles.
or get both if possible. They are all worth owning. Most gamestops will get like 10 Switches....give or take a few depending on how much sales your local store pulls in. They sell out sometimes right away but within the first 4-5 hours is what the workers at Gamestop told me.
Wow awesome. Still glade I had mine paid off because launch. People had better get one while they can. This is only valid until August 20th that is only a five day window. On a side note I think they must be getting a good profit from the SWITCH in order to be only offering a extra $50 dollars trade in only for a SWITCH. If that was not the case they would be able to give a extra $50 regaurdless of what you buy with the trade in.
Gamestop will never get my PS4 for a Switch
Yeah, as much as I love my Switch I wouldn't trade a PS4 for it. The Switch works best as a secondary console.
Agreed. It plays 2nd fiddle to my Xbox One.
My XB1 plays second fiddle to my Switch atm, way more exciting exclusives.
Primary console for me.
If I were upgrading to a Pro or didn't have a Switch already, I'd consider it. But in all honesty, I'd much rather just keep the PS4 and get the Switch anyways. I'll need that PS4 for when Kingdom Hearts 3 comes out, after all, unless Squeenix and Nintendo pull a fast one by announcing a Switch version due out next year.
I think you hit it dead on the head. Since I was upgrading my PS4 to a PS4 Pro I bought the ps4 pro did a transfer played a few days. Once I had my PS4 pro in the spot of the PS4 I then traded my PS4 in for a SWITCH(towards pre paid) that way I was not without a PS4 for even a day and had my SWITCH taken care of. I kinda did the same with my xbox one for a xbox one forza edition.
Finally someone said it.
I wish I could get that deal trading in my PS4 for the pro
No thanks my PS4 is worth more
it says its only worth 200, for both ps4 and ps4 pro, how is it worth more than 300 dollar switch
Its not, don't argue with Sony fans, they are ALWAYS right even when theyre wrong.
Well since the Pro is being sold for far more than the regular PS4 it's really rather weird that they equate them both to $200. But, I don't think he was talking about actual trade-in worth but the worth to him personally. For me, if I had to choose to trade-in one of the two, my PS4 Pro or my Switch, I would trade-in the Switch since I have far more games for my Pro and thus it's worth more to me... @EddieNX Yeah, and am sure you're never wrong huh?
Trade in value is not the same as worth.
And how much do you think Gamestop would say a USED Nintendo Switch is worth?
go go people trade in your best console for a gameless low spec gaming handheld device!
With somehow a higher rated exclusive to play on it
Why bother trolling? Seriously, child, go back to bed.
Nah I'm keeping my PS4 thank you very much. Knowing how Gamestop is they will probably offer you $150 for the PS4 or Xbox One which is a rip off.
read article, it gives 200 for ps4 or ps4 pro towards the Switch
Well color me surprised. Still though, I don't see many people trading in their PS4 for a Switch.
Yeah read article GEMMOL is right. If you use towards a SWITCH it is 200. If it is NOT used towards SWITCH it is 150. It is a good deal if you was planing to get a SWITCH and upgrading your PS4 to a PS4 PRO. The trade in worth goes down as time goes by.
I'd trade in my wii u but it's not even a trade in option I'll just hang on to it I guess
I'm sure Gamestop will give you $5 for it.
Best they can do is maybe 3 bucks
lol forget gamestop amazon will give 109 for the popular one that had mario pre installed on it. https://www.amazon.com/Amaz... Just click that then click add more items then type in Wii u. But even Gamestop gives you $75 for the basic black one with NO game included. http://www.gamestop.com/tra...
The fine print in the GameStop app says yes, but it's only worth $75 credit.
The Wii U is an option but they're only giving $100 credit for it. There's a big list of consoles and handhelds to trade in, but the prices aren't the best.
Yeah, I keep my game consoles so that's not happening
Was able to get one at Target on Sunday..apparently they got a shipment of twenty that morning...Didn't even know they got shipments on Sunday. Just happened to be there shopping when I took a look. There were four left when I noticed and as I was buying one another was being taken out of the case. This was an unannounced shipment at a low volume Target and it was practically sold out within a couple of hours. I'm sure the last two didn't last long at all. The system is great and is selling faster than any other console in recent memory. I would be shocked if major developers ignore the Switch with the numbers of consoles they are putting out. It would be like throwing money away. "IF" Nintendo can move over ten million or more units by Christmas I have a feeling they will be announcing some great and unexpected games/franchises shortly after.
Faster than any console in recent memory.... except you know the PS4.
@LastCentury 2017: PS4 Jan: 210,665 Feb: 398,407 Mar: 396,726 Apr: 206,247 May: 187,182 Jun: 381,196 XBO Jan: 157,545 Feb: 215,418 Mar: 243,514 Apr: 109,950 May: 109,130 Jun: 153,389 Switch Mar: 910,545 Apr: 280,897 May: 165,038 Jun: 215,582 These are supposedly real NPD numbers and it looks like the Switch got slaughtered in June by the PS4.
It might surpass the PS4 first year by christmas if nintendo can produce enough. It's trailing the DS in japan which is huge.
How dare you tell us about how 20 was down to 3 in a few hours, in a low volume staore no less! No wonder you get disagrees! You NON Nintendo hater you! Saying something po, positive about SWITCH sales? The nerve of you!
Maybe he got disagrees for the other false part of his comment, acting like Switch sales are better than PS4 sales were at the beginning.
Sorry... This "IS" N4G, so I guess I should hate a little more....Let me bash it a little by finding a negative...... I can't have sex with it............................ .or can I???
dantesparda....Slaughterer? LOL, What??? Wow, what a sad comment. The Switch isn't even my main console and it probably won't replace what I consider my favorite...I just happen to have eyes and can see what is going on with the Switch and its popularity!..Whatever.. For one, at this same point in time during its fist year the PS4 could be found on shelves by now with few problems. That is not the case with the Switch. It sells out constantly, usually within hours after it is put on shelves. It does not look as though that will change anytime soon. If Nintendo could double production it would still sell out with no issues..That is how much demand there is for the system! So, yeah, I stand by what I said. The switch is certainly more popular than the PS4 right now...Will that last? Will the Switch sell 60 million units in its first four years?..Who knows, but right now more people are looking to purchase the Switch than the PS4..Unfortunately, most just can't find one right now. I mean, you are acting as if the PS4 is being discarded and replaced, which it certainly is not!...Ok, go back to doing what overly obsessed fanboys do when they feel someone dared attack the sovereignty of their favorite console.....yawn.
Damn man, That was great!! Lol The Switch is just getting started boys!!
@C_ALI88 yeah that was good. If your a tall basketball player and that is your thing. Then you hear someone else getting called tall. Relax, your still tall, it was not a attack on you. I still like PS4 Pro, and will keep loving the exclusives on it. I still have Xbox one, and will still have it(actually I have xbox one forza edition, and will replace it with a x1x). So chill. LastCenturyRob had a point.
My Walmart has had a few in stock for awhile now. I think the locals where I am are just more into Xbox One. (Except me, I have a Switch, but play PS4 99% of the time. I don't even have an Xbox One.) (Always the oddball.)
Trade in your more powerful machines for just a switch... errr, that doesn't seem right.
You do know that is just an option right? You can maybe just buy it outright without trading anything? I know, shocking right?
Talk about a wolf in sheeps clothing. I dont see anyone doing this...
Who would be foolish enough to trade in the much better PS4 or XBox One for a Switch, which has almost no 3rd party games coming out in the near future? Makes no sense at all. Wait until the Switch actually has a decent library of games, if that actually ever happens. As of now, there aren't many games out for the Switch and very few coming in the future, besides a handful of first party Nintendo games. Meanwhile the PS4 and XBox One have much larger and more diverse libraries of games and are both much better options for gamers.
People who do not have time to game by their TV, perfect for my boy who have a kid but hardly home but he already got a switch, so deal no good for him now, he already have a ps4 but with more work hours its been collecting dust
Are u serious?...you still can't walk into the store and buy this junk system?
Junk would be defined as "worthless or discarded items or materials" given the current demand I don't think you can call the Switch junk at this juncture! It is heavily sought after and coveted at the moment!
Nintendo was at the top of it's game with the snes because its graphical fidelity was cutting edge. They owned gaming at the time...I wish I could say that now.
LOL as a kid I didn't care about with 16 bit game looked better!! Sega had games I liked but Nintendo had more! Sorry this whole tech argument is moot! I enjoy playing my home console games on the go, it just feels good.
Unless they have it different than website its not a great deal like i thought they force you to buy a bundle version 399 479
