When Nintendo Switch launched some two months ago for $300 it broke sales records just about everywhere it was available. In fact, it sold more in the first weekend than any other Nintendo hardware release in history. For those lucky enough to their hands on one in the interim, the unbelievable Legend of Zelda Breath of the Wild lay in wait. A game that not only saw near perfect review scores across the board, but one that also became Nintendo’s best-selling title in Europe ever.
Needless to say, this is one sought after console and Nintendo is still fumbling to fill the needs of consumers. While we are still waiting on the impending ramp up in Switch production, don’t worry, GameStop has already received another shipment available for purchase this week…
If you want a Switch, run over to your nearest GameStop right now! You might want to consider making a phone call first, as the retailer has already stated that stock would not last through the weekend. While that doesn’t sound particularly positive, the fact that they might last until the weekend is pretty amazing.
The fresh shipment comes just in time for the release of Mario Kart 8 Deluxe on Friday. But remember, if you’re a Prime member it might be smarter to grab MK8 Deluxe at Amazon for just $48 shipped, or grab it over on Best Buy at the same price for GCU members.
These aren’t the $500 bundles already available online either. GameStop is selling its stock of Nintendo Switch consoles in-store only for just $300.
However, it is currently running a pretty sweet trade-in program that could knock as much as $200 off your new Switch purchase. You can get up to $200 in credit towards a brand new Switch with the trade-in of a PS4, Xbox One, New Nintendo 3DS or Wii U (32GB). As expected, everything will need to be in working condition and in good shape. You can get more details on that right here and down below.
