With most retail stock gone and no specific date on when more will arrive, getting a Switch will cost you some extra money.
People should not overlook the 2nd hand market. I just got one for $200. As people get needy for $$, the deals can be found. This virus has yielded me several deals on ps4 and xbo systems and now a switch.
Are you hoarding them or something
I guess you could see it that way. Another way to look at it is I collect the variants. The ones I purchased recently were the minecraft and gears 4 xbox one s and the battlefront and call of duty ps4. I got my eye on the uncharted and destiny ps4 and the foza 6 og xbox one. I may not use them but I like having them.
100% bro I got my switch with 6 games (incl zelda, Mario Odyssey and Breath Of the wild) carry case, dock and charging stand for 250
I know it sucks but don't give in to scalpers.
Forreal, scalpers are the worst kinda ppl.
Supply and demand.
so did the guy who hoarded hand sanitizer
No. Scalpers are leeches, parasites. They provide no value to the economy. The goods are already designed, manufactured and distributed to their final points of sale. The scalpers intercept them at that final point to suck more money out of consumers. It has nothing to do with economic principles.
Supply and demand is for legitimate shops with price standards. Not some guy with a van taking all the toilet paper to sell on gumtree. Stuff like this is why my elderly neighbours haven't got enough. Supply and demand my a$$
its a combination of the viris stay at home out break, animal crossing and uptake in switch as a replacement for 3ds
Not sure why 6 people disagreed with you. You are probably correct.
Maybe because nothing will replace the 3ds
I don't know man. The Switch being out of stock and price increase has been around a while. Still these things certainly help.
I sold my v1 brand new in box for $450 last week.
It's because of the virus that Nintendo is seeing their Switch sold out. This is not a time to rejoice.
So it toilet rolls
Glad I bought mine years ago lol. Ofc scalpers will take advantage of even a pandemic to land some profits.
Wow, we got lucky then. I literally just bought one for my daughter (and myself) less than 2 weeks ago.
Bought one last week - I might have timed that perfectly based on the flurry of articles saying it's been bought up everywhere.
i wonder if this has anything to do with low manufacting yeilds from China
Don’t give scalpers the benefit
Wow Animal Crossing must really be a good game I'll have to check it out if it's helping drive up Switch sales. I usually go to pawnshops for some good deals on used games there they would rather sell them cheap just to move them out. Saw a Switch light a month ago for $150 I should have jumped on it but I went for the N64's and SNES. I know if someone is selling a Switch for more then what Wal Mart is selling it for I will avoid it never know what you're going to get. Either a real Switch or someones botched job of repairing one they bought from Ebay or just a plastic empty shell with no guts to run it.
Why? If you're going to be stuck at home, get a proper HD console.
i wish it was bravely default II that just released, and not animal crossing. lets get another virus going for when bravely default II releases later this year, yea?
Bravely Default II demo is supposed to launch today. I'm keeping an eye on the eShop. I'm downvoting you for your last sentence, though.
Had no idea there was a demo coming, thx. I respect your decision.
This will probably end up like when scalpers hoarded the PS3. It backfired on them and endend up selling it for less money than they bought for it.
There’s a bunch of Animal Crossing Switch’s at Prime Now warehouse where I live, The problem is finding a delivery window
Mix of things. Majority of the world is ordered to stay home, new releases, and alot of down time for most people for the first time this century
Dont impulse buy an overpriced Switch, if you're patient you can come across them for regular prices.
Yes. There are reddit posts every so often about shipments to different retailers (like Walmart, Target). Whoever wants a Switch without promoting scalping should keep their eyes open for such news.
Yeah, there wasn't a single one anywhere within a 100 mile radius, was trying to buy one for my girlfriend to play animal crossing, ended up getting one used for 200. Lots of Switch Lites still available though. Several times I was told by retail staff something about "parts from china", I get that, but don't PS4 and Xbox also have parts from China? Why is it only affecting Nintendo?
Everywhere except my local belgium store.. (saw 5-6 units)
It’s time to ask the grandparents if we can have theirs 😆 I’m almost certain they don’t play it without us anyways
Ummmm iv been to every major store brand this week for work. Always check out game section. They have them everywhere. More fake news
The world is bigger than what your two eyes can see you know...
This is beyond sad. Any comment made that stated a percieved negative comment abt the switch was marked as inappropriate. That's pretty pathetic.
