Nintendo Switch And Switch Lite In Stock At GameStop Today

The Nintendo Switch and Switch Lite have been hard to find at most retailers for months, but we're still seeing it in stock on occasion.

29 Comments

Though it's not nearly as crucial as hand sanitizer, tissues, toilet paper, and other household goods, the Nintendo Switch console is seeing a major national shortage right now, as major retailers respond to increased demand for online goods due to the coronavirus outbreak. Both the regular and Lite versions of the console have become hard to find as more people find themselves stuck indoors and looking for a good way to play some video games.

The Nintendo Switch Lite is also hard to find, though we've seen the smaller, more portable version of the console in stock more frequently. We've highlighted stores where versions and colors of the console are currently available below.

According to Nintendo, more regular Switch consoles will be restocked soon. "Nintendo Switch hardware is selling out at various retail locations in the US, but more systems are on the way. We apologize for any inconvenience," Nintendo told GameSpot in an email statement.

It might be difficult to find either version of the Nintendo Switch in stock right now, but we've seen it come back into stock on occasion. However, online restocks usually sell out within a minute or less. Some places, like GameStop and Best Buy, let you check availability at your local store, and if you can find it in stock, they may do curbside pickup so you don't even have to go inside. You can check the current listings and availability below. We check for availability frequently and update this story anytime we spot the Switch in stock.


Best Buy

All colors of the Nintendo Switch and Lite Lite are currently sold out at Best Buy.


Amazon


GameStop


Walmart

All colors of the Nintendo Switch and Switch Lite are currently sold out at Walmart.


Target


Nintendo Switch out of stock

While not available at MSRP, you can check current listings for the regular Nintendo Switch below. Some stores simply list the console as unavailable, while others are allowing third-party sellers to offer the console for much higher prices, usually around $400-$500. Sometimes, the Switch is only available for pickup at a brick-and-mortar location.


Nintendo Switch Lite out of stock

The Nintendo Switch Lite is a little easier to find than the regular Switch, but it's currently sold out at most major retailers right now. As with the regular Switch, Amazon and Walmart are selling all versions of the console through third-party sellers at a markup, if you absolutely need one on short notice.

There were more then a few (switch consoles) in stock at my local Walmart. Not sure if the online stores are out of stock, but may only be in stock local or store only. Maybe try checking for store availability near you.

Also they still have a large red sign up, saying FF7 remake still out of stock. Been up for a month now, wonder why physical is still so hard to find. (got mine on launch day through amazon).

@chewbakken: I don't get personal alerts. I meant "alert" as in they posted the deal to let us know. If you want notification on when they become in stock, try sites like zoolert https://www.zoolert.com/videogames/consoles/nintendo/switch/

So no where unless you want to pay a big premium...

GameStop must really need to sell ad space to write such worthless articles.

You sent me an email titled "Where To Buy a Nintendo Switch", linking to this article. Yet the same article lists everything as sold out. Why did you write this? You aren't helping anyone.

Try writing an article rather than engaging in hypercommercialism.

I had a Switch but sold it. Hearing now there's an upgraded 'Pro' or Switch 2 possible (next year?) I might just indulge again. Especially with BOTW2 and Metroid 4 coming. Looks like it might have the portability removed as well. Not fussed about that. Much prefer it.

I knew Nintendo's prior youtube policies and lack of angry joe review would ruin them.

They threw away all that free advertising and look where it got them.

Is there a real reason to buy a Switch right now?

@jsprunk: nope, have an Xbox One X, Xbox One S and a Switch. The Switch barely gets used, it has a few good games, thats about it and as usual the good games are from the major franchises Mario, Zelda etc. The reason it sells so well is because its cheap, makes it great for the kiddos, doesn't surprise me it has sold like crazy with all the kids stuck at home. Now, yes Animal Crossing just came out, pretty popular...but gets boring fast.
