Where To Buy A Nintendo Switch
The Nintendo Switch has been hard to find at most retailers for months now.
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. The $300 console is seeing increased demand as more people find themselves stuck indoors and looking for a good way to play some video games. If you're absolutely in dire need of any kind of Switch, however, the smaller, portable-only Switch Lite might be just what you're looking for. It's much more likely to be in stock at major retailers right now.
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.
