Insider Scoop: How To Get Nintendo Switch At GameStop

Posted March 21, 2017

Aside from the frustratingly small list of available games at this point, there aren't very many widespread complaints about the new Nintendo Switch. Inquisitr states that Nintendo originally only planned to produce 8 million Nintendo Switch units for 2017 but looking at the hype Nintendo is doubling their production to meet the public demand.

According to a source close to The Wall Street Journal Nintendo expects to sell upwards of 10 million Switches during the console's first year on the market.

The official Nintendo.co.uk site was one of the last online options to offer a Nintendo Switch to buy, although that has now flipped back to showing a message confirming more stock is set to arrive in late March. The console sold more in its launch weekend across New Zealand and Australia combined than any previous Nintendo system in history. This is quite far from the 100-million units of the Wii, but definitely an improvement from the Wii U's measly 13-million sales worldwide.

The good news is that we're not seeing something system breaking like the Xbox 360 RROD, but it's good to see that Nintendo is being adamant about helping those who have these issues with the Switch through their support team.

Nintendo Switch has been hard to come by since launch, but that should all change soon, as Nintendo reveals plans to double production of the popular games console. It's sure to go fast, so maybe call today and ask real nice to find out if your particular store will be getting them in tomorrow. This all means you get the true console experience out and about, meaning the fun doesn't stop when you have to leave the house.

So are you thinking of trading in an older console to get the Nintendo Switch?
