hard to do that when this is one per customer and in lottery form where line placement doesnt even matter lol

I know. Im just bothered at Nintendo for dropping the ball on the switch. The demand is there and i still cant understand why Nintendo hasnt figured out a solution to keep up with the demand, especially with Nintendos deep pockets.

It's Japan not America.

That's insane! :D It's strange that the demand is so high and the availability of the Switch is so low in some countries. Here in Norway most physical stores have it. And online stores have loads ready to be shipped.

Its not strange at all, its called artificial scarcity.

pootymcpoockle1575d ago

It's well documented that it's due to a parts shortage.

Give up.

Yeah I've heard all the damage control and apologist stories already. Give up.

this is the same country where you probably cant even give away an xbox one, so its not that strange.

Maybe the people in Japan should take the shipping hit and buy the ones up in Norway. I shop outside the USA all the time. Some times shipping cost is not bad at all.
