Nintendo Switch Preorders Reopened Today At Best Buy And Sold Out Right Away

That was quick.


Preorders for the Nintendo Switch opened again at Best Buy today and the store's allotment went quickly, it seems.

A Best Buy representative notified GameSpot at 1:25 PM ET that Switch became available to preorder. The units sold out quickly, apparently, as stock for the gray and the neon red/neon blue versions are no longer available.

We've followed up with Best Buy to find out if and when more units will become available. The $300 console remains sold out basically everywhere, including GameStop and Amazon. It previously was available from Best Buy in mid-January.

Best Buy still has extra Joy-Con controllers and other accessories, as well as games, available to preorder. Go to Best Buy's website here to see everything that's available.

In other Nintendo news, the company this week announced it will air a commercial for the Switch during Sunday's Super Bowl LI--you can watch an extended version now. Additionally, we might now know at least a ballpark estimate for how much the Switch's online membership might cost.

On top of that, Nintendo's president has responded to the criticism that the Switch's launch lineup is "weak."
