The Switch has become Nintendo’s fastest selling console ever and they will be upping the production from 8 million to 16 million Switches being made. Despite that fact Nintendo Switches are sold out in every store at the time I am writing this article, they are slowly coming back in stock and there are still ways to obtain a Switch or at least a way to get a good deal. GameStop, a store where you can purchase all of your gaming needs, is offering a deal where if you trade in a PS4 you get $200 worth in store credit to put towards your purchase of the Nintendo Switch. Gamestop is also offering $175 in store credit if you trade in your Xbox One and $150 if you trade in your Wii U or 3DS.
Nintendo has released more classics, such as the Super Mario series, The Legend of Zelda series and the Pokemon games than any developer I have ever known. They have provided many hours of fun throughout my childhood, especially when I would play with my friends. It has been over 4 years since Nintendo released the Wii U, and to some people that may sound like a long time but in consoles years that is short. For example the xbox 360 came out in 2005 and has games still being created and released for it (although few and the games that do come out for it are toned down due to the 360’s lack in graphical power).
Nintendo decided to release their new console early due to the disappointing sales Nintendo had with the Wii U. Nintendo revealed their new console the Switch back in October 2016. The Switch would have the ability to “switch” back and forth from a handheld gaming device to a home console gaming device. Fans were eagerly awaiting Nintendo’s new product and when Legend of Zelda Breath of the Wild was announced along with the Switch the Nintendo Switch sold out on the first day that consumers could preorder it.
GameStop’s deal will last from March 22 to 26, so if you are in the market for a Nintendo Switch, get out there and buy one!
