Nintendo Switch Back In Stock At Gamestop Later This Week

Nintendo Switch Back In Stock At Gamestop Later This Week

After being launched on March 3, the Nintendo Switch went out of stock really fast and we had even suggested a workaround to get the console immediately then.

According to The Wall Street Journal, Nintendo is rising up the production from initial 8 million to around 16 million now.

After the Wii U, Nintendo has been very hopeful but conservative about the Nintendo Switch. SuperData predicted just before launch that the Switch would sell just 5 million units through the end of 2017, and IHS predicted 4.4 million sales for the year.

Whether that directly translates to more units of the console making their way to stores sooner rather than later still remains to be seen, however, though gamers will likely be paying close attention to what happens next. Wiggling our foot or placing our hand in our lap was still enough to cause problems with the controller- and that was after we followed Nintendo's advice to move the Switch away from other wireless devices and put the console in front of our TV instead of behind it.

"We want our consumers to get up and running quickly to have fun with Nintendo Switch", the statement read. Hungry for Nintendo Switch footage? The customer enthusiasm and response we have seen so far has been incredible as we continue to sell through our supply of systems.

One of the coolest things about the Switch is Nintendo's new controller design. The great aspects of Nintendo Switch is that it's different and innovative. At that point, you'd be better off investing in a tent to pick up one in your local store. So if you don't make it to Gamestop's cutoff, what's a few more days?

Meanwhile, there's bad new for those who have not pre-ordered the Nintendo Switch for they will have to buy it at a steep premium. Now if only it could fix that left Joy-Con issue....

At $599.99, the Nintendo Switch Starter Bundle Two includes the Nintendo Switch System, The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild game, Expansion Pass (digital) and Strategy Guide.
