Nintendo Switch Available At GameStop, But In A $500 Bundle
Order now and it'll ship by May 5.
The Nintendo Switch remains difficult to track down six weeks after its release, but you can order one from GameStop right now. The catch: you may have to wait a few weeks, and it'll cost you $500.
As it has previously, the retailer has bundled its new allotment of Switch consoles into a large bundle that consists of the system (with gray or neon Joy-Cons); physical copies of The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild and Mario Kart 8 Deluxe; Breath of the Wild's expansion pass; and a 128 GB microSD card.
Add it all up using GameStop's $60 price on the microSD card, and it comes out to $500, so it's not as if you're being overcharged for this. You'll simply need to want everything that's included for the bundle to be a worthwhile deal.
Switch has been routinely sold out since its launch in early March, and GameStop previously said on a call with investors that supply issues could last all year.
If you're interested, you can order the bundles here (gray) or here (neon). GameStop says they'll ship by no later than May 5. With Mario Kart 8 Deluxe releasing on April 28, you probably shouldn't expect to see your delivery any sooner than that.
