My local Target and BestBuy almost always have a couple in stock.

300 without a game is too much for me. How about 250 with a 20 dollar Eshop card?

Is it cause new systems don't typically have deals on Black Friday?

It's the Switch's first holiday, so I would not expect any price drops. Some stores may bundle a game or gift card though.

Same with the Xbox One X.

End of August and start of September seemed to be where Improved production lines have become truly apparent. There are constant shipments and inventory is flowing pretty well. Huge difference from Early August and earlier

Yeah post Splatoon 2 supplies have been better, I imagine it will be fairly available until Mario and then hard to find again after that until January.

Yup. Only about $30 more than I was able to buy it from Japan at launch (and that was the best price worldwide). Although I noticed they seem to have increased the import fee for the Switch to my country since I ordered it a few hours ago. Glad I acted fast on it. Edit: nope it didn't go up; it was shown combined with shipping.

Have 3 European SNES Minis arriving tomorrow. G L O B A L B O Y Z thug life

Same happened last time it was up on Amazon, over 40 days ago, they probably got a large shipment. It's #1 Best Seller in Video Game Consoles & Accessories.

Wichita Falls.

Though, I was in the North Dallas area a few months ago. I guess more populated areas would have more problems with stock, so damn that sucks it hasn't improved over there. I'm just shock how easy it's been over here.

I prefer grey much more. Neon gets older everytime I see it. Doesn't look as classy imo.

Both gray and neon models are readily available at all the stores near me. BB, Target, Walmart and TRU all have stock. I'm in SE US.

Still glad I grabbed a neon a few weeks ago from Target for my nephew's birthday in December. Better safe than sorry. If I hadn't got one then, you can bet they would still be sold out everywhere though, haha.

It was a report by digi times, which requires a serving of salt grains. We will hear more on OCtober 30th, when Nintendo releases their earnings and maybe ups fiscal year shipping expectations.

Just last week, I have finally seen Nintendo Switches being sold physically in Walmart stores. They’re Splatoon 2 bundles specifically, however.

Picked one up a few days ago when it was in stock. Grabbed a neon one, to be delivered tomorrow. Pretty psyched! Also ordered a screen protector, travel case, and a power bank since I have a few international trips coming up soon and I'd love to be able to game during the entire flight.

Did we even know what monthly production was at before it supposedly raised to 2M?

The link is fine, Amazon is just back-ordered and auto-selects a different seller with stock at hand.

They can sell all the preorders they want, then not ship any, and sell them out of the Amazon trucks instead on launch day!

They planned to ship 10 million from April 1 to March 31th, so 0.83 million a month. That's why ramping up to 2 million is so hard to accept without reliable evidence: the difference is huge.

Not amazon but all of my local retailers besides Best Buy have switches in stock. I asked around and apparently they’re still selling really well, they just get a ton of them now.
