Where To Find A Nintendo Switch In Stock
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 a Switch, your best option right now is the Switch Lite, its smaller, handheld-only version. The gray Switch Lite is available on its own for $200 at GameStop, and if you want a game, there are also bundles available. Target also has the yellow, gray, and turquoise versions in stock.
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's rare to find the regular Nintendo Switch in stock right now, but we've seen it come back into stock on occasion. However, online restocks usually sell out within a minute or less. 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 will update this story if we spot the Switch in stock.
