Stock Refresh On GAME, GameStop & Amazon; Supply Shortage Fix

Douglas Bogart: We are now working on getting on the Nintendo Switch!

No official sales data for the Switch has been released. The total number of fix or replacement requests for Nintendo Switch, including for Joy-Con, is consistent with what we've seen for any new hardware Nintendo has launched. That way, you'll get to be on the look out for newer Nintendo Switch games, too, and maybe even revamped and better units since we've been hearing issues about the Nintendo Switch's Joy-Cons and docks.


Nintendo's last console Wii U was a disaster for the company it could manage to sell out only 13.5 million units throughout its life after being launched in 2012, pushing the company to a loss of 46.4 billion that year. As Nintendo steadily expands the games lineup, it is also beefing up stock availability to as much as 16 million units for just 2017, which will keep the steep premium back to MSRP once supply is high.

Nintendo will be doubling production of their new home/handheld hybrid console, the Switch.


Aside from the frustratingly small list of available games at this point, there aren't very many widespread complaints about the new Nintendo Switch.

GameStop continues to see strong demand from customers who are looking to purchase the Nintendo Switch system. But it does certainly prove that with enough practice, it is possible to win prizes such as the Nintendo Switch. This means you may find some stock of the Nintendo Switch as early as this Wednesday. But the fact that GameStop issued a press release about a restock - normally a mundane event - certainly says something. So if you don't make it to Gamestop's cutoff, what's a few more days? "These bundles include everything a gamer needs to enjoy the innovation behind the Nintendo Switch system". The great aspects of Nintendo Switch is that it's different and innovative.
