Now Playing: Reggie Fils-Aime Is Retiring!? - GS News Update

If you're in the market for a Nintendo Switch, you can save some money by purchasing one at about 10% off the regular retail price. Retailer Newegg has the neon red/blue and gray variations for just $270, with a coupon code.

Though the price displays at the full $300, you can shave it down by entering "EMCTVVA34" in the promo box at checkout. This is a low-cost alternative to the standard deal running currently across several retailers, which gives you a $35 Eshop credit with the purchase of a new Switch console. If you don't particularly need the Eshop voucher it saves you some money.

Deals on Nintendo hardware and software are relatively rare compared to other consoles and PC. The Switch has been a particular sales powerhouse for Nintendo, and the company recently outlined some of its plans for the coming year in a Nintendo Direct presentation. Those included lots of details about Fire Emblem: Three Houses, Super Mario Maker 2, and a remake of The Legend of Zelda: Link's Awakening.

Meanwhile, the company is undergoing some changes in leadership. Nintendo of America president Reggie Fils-Aime is retiring, to be replaced by current sales VP and on-the-nose reference Doug Bowser. Fils-Aime has been known throughout the industry for his larger-than-life personality and enormous stature, so the announcement was met with rounds of fond farewells from around the industry.
