Nintendo Switch Shortages Hit Retailers and Online Stores
If you're in the market for a new Nintendo Switch or Nintendo Switch Lite system, you might find it harder to get one that you thought. Considering the state of things, brick-and-mortar shops and online retailers are finding it increasingly difficult to keep Nintendo's latest console in stock.
That is, it's hard to find unless you're willing to pay twice the normal price or more from dubious sellers on eBay and Amazon. However, according to GameSpot, Nintendo is working to fix the issue.
The Big N issued a statement to GameSpot recognizing the shortages and assuring readers more are coming.
"Nintendo Switch hardware is selling out at various retail locations in the U.S., but more systems are on the way," the statement reads, before closing with "We apologize for any inconvenience."
We expected a shortage of some kind based on analyst predictions about manufacturing, not mass buying. With supply lines strained and Nintendo's success over the past six months or so, it's not too surprising given the current circumstances.
The likes of Pokemon Sword and Shield, ports like The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt Complete Edition, and more recent titles like Mega Man Zero/ZX Collection have put the system in high demand.
