Bad News For Nintendo Switch Fans: Console Is Out Of Stock Everywhere
The Switch has been the fastest-selling console in Nintendo’s history, making it utterly difficult to find in the weeks since it launched. Fans have to stand in line on release day or have to shell out big bucks to get the latest tech game craze in town. This is bad news for Switch fans because it means that the chances of getting hold of one are extremely slim.
Sales of the console have gone through the roof as people aggressively seek it out. The buying frenzy has made the console not just the best-selling console for the month of March, but also one of the best-selling consoles of all time in terms of launch sales. The latest NPD figures show that the portable console actually sold 31,000 more units than the Game Boy Advance during the same one-month launch period.
According to GameSpot, the Nintendo Switch outsold the PS4 and Xbox One in March specifically due to its hardware versatility. The total US hardware sales have been said to have "almost doubled", rising to $485 million. The NPD stated that March 2017 will go down in history books as the month Nintendo broke game consoles selling records.
The console also had the biggest hardware launch for a Nintendo platform and the second biggest launch of any video game platform since 1995, as tracked by the NPD. Per the Daily Express, the Nintendo console is currently unavailable on regular console online retailers such as the GAME website and Tesco Direct. Some stock is available at Amazon, but buyers have to be prepared to shell out at the inflated price of £319.95.
Meanwhile, the Gray version of Nintendo Switch is out of stock. While Argos and Toys R Us appear to have units available in store, but the stock is at a limited supply. The skyrocketing sales of this hugely popular console might continue for months to come until Christmas season, and units may also continue to get out of stock immediately.
