Nintendo Switch Stock: Company Apologizes For Shortages Of New Console

Apple iPhone

We're trying to be more flexible and bring more people in. GameStop is actually taking pre-orders for the console due to the high demand and limited stock but you'll have to jump through some hoops to get one. The Switch has been so popular, in fact, that Nintendo is reportedly competing with Apple for some scarce electronics components, but Nintendo would apparently love to do a better job of meeting demand. Within a couple of weeks, new Splatoon 2 Switch bundles will be produced and delivered to retail shops in massive numbers.

Starting this week, GameStop is receiving more units of Nintendo Switch, that oh-so-hard-to-find gaming console that everyone's so insane about. For autumn and beyond, we will continue to work to ensure that as many products as possible can be delivered to our customers through the end of the year as we further strengthen our production system.

The Nintendo Switch is also available from the GameStop website but there is a hitch.

It's no secret by now that Nintendo Switch hasn't exactly been easy to come by. But Nintendo is indeed ramping up production at this very moment, and shipments are set to increase as soon as July, which is just over one week away. The new console has sold-out at large retailers and e-commerce sites, and consumers are having a hard time finding it.

To continue to appeal to nostalgia-minded fans, Scibetta pointed out that Nintendo would be providing updated versions of classic games on the Switch for those that subscribe to their $20/year online membership starting next year.




Basically, Nintendo has outdone itself once again in inspiring a weirdly specific and granular accessory market with its new home console.

Mario + Rabbids Kingdom Battle Nintendo Switch screenshots Sun, June 11, 2017 MARIO + Rabbids Kingdom Battle is a tactical role-playing game for Nintendo Switch.

Nintendo believes that the Switch could be as successful as the Wii, which was first released back in 2006. We've done this song and dance with Nintendo for years with the limited availability of several amiibo already, and last holiday season's NES Classic was also no stranger to stock shortages.

In the first month following its debut, Switch sold 2.74 million units worldwide.

In addition, since you place the console on top of this dock, instead of inside it, you won't have to worry that it'll scratch your Switch's screen.
