Nintendo Switch In Stock At Amazon, Best Buy, And Target
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.
Fall has arrived, and Americans are getting ready to settle in for some cold weather and several holidays, so it's no wonder the country is experiencing an extended Nintendo Switch console shortage. More people are looking for a good way to play some video games (especially in the wake of the COVID-19 pandemic), so it's likely to last for a while longer. That doesn't mean you can't find a console, however. If you want to start playing the latest and greatest Nintendo games, we've got you covered.
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 if you're quick and have just a bit of luck, you might be able to score one. 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.
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.
