A press release by GameStop states that they sold out the initial pre-orders for Nintendo Switch consoles “in a matter of few days”
The pre-orders are sold out in over 3900 GameStop stores in the United states and online. GameStop’s senior vice president of merchandising Bob Puzon says “We’re working closely with Nintendo to get additional Nintendo Switch units, and will let our customers know when they become available”.
Preorders for the £280 system went live on Friday, following the Switch's reveal presentation. Other major console retailers in the United States including Amazon, Target, Best Buy and Walmart have listed the pre-order as "out of stock". The prorders have cropped up on eBay, however, and the prices range from £350 to £500.
