Toys R Us Throws Up Placeholder Price for Nintendo Switch

The Nintendo Switch has appeared on the Canadian Toys R Us website. And the price isn't too shabby ...

Not much is currently known about the Nintendo Switch, aside from what the preview trailer had to offer. However, a placeholder page for the Switch has recently appeared on the Canadian Toys R Us website, generating excitement in Canadian Nintendo fans on Reddit. While the site doesn't provide anything particularly new in terms of info, it did present a tentative price for the system.

According to the placeholder page, the Nintendo Switch will be selling for $329.99 CAD. That's $244.23 USD at the current exchange rate. In comparison, the 500GB PlayStation 4 Slim and Xbox One S models retail for $379.99 CAD.

It should be noted that while the price presented on the placeholder site might be accurate, prices are subjectable to change between now and the time of the Switch's release. After all, a placeholder is simply a placeholder, unless, of course, the price was directly presented to Toys R Us by Nintendo of Canada. As such, it should not be assumed that this will be the final retail price.

What do you think about the tentative price for the Nintendo Switch presented by Toys R Us Canada? Would you be willing to pay $329.99 CAD for the Switch based on what's been revealed thus far? Leave your thoughts in the comments section below!
