Switch drops to record high prices in UK, but Nintendo warns of stock issues – so act fast! | Games | Entertainment

the Nintendo Switch is available cheaply on Amazon UK. Right now you can pick up the Neon Red / Neon Blue version of the Nintendo Switch for £ 229. That’s a saving of £ 30 over the typical console RRP of £ 259. This new price was introduced this year in the UK, with the Nintendo Switch previously costing £ 279 for years.

With the money you save on the price of a Nintendo Switch, you will be able to use it for the cost of a game.

Amazon has also cut prices for many Nintendo Switch games., with titles such as Pokemon Shining Pearl, Super Smash Bros Ultimate, and Mario Golf Super Rush all available at a discount price.

If you haven’t bought a Switch yet, but have been thinking about buying one for a while, now is a great time to do so.

And not just because of this good deal Amazon is running right now, but because Nintendo has warned of looming stock issues in 2022.

Nintendo President Shuntaro Furukawa recently warned that the global semiconductor shortage, which has severely affected PS5 and Xbox Series X stock levels, will also affect Switch supply for the foreseeable future.

Speaking to Kyoto Shimbun, Furukawa-san said, “For Nintendo Switch hardware, we’ve reduced our forecast from 1.50 million units to 24.00 million units. Our shipment forecast for the second half of the year has been reduced due to the change in our production plan due to the effects of the global semiconductor shortage. On the other hand, we revised the forecast for Nintendo Switch software up from 10.00 million units to 200.00 million units based on first half sales performance. “

In the United States by Christmas, major retailers such as Best Buy, Target, and GameStop had all sold out the standard version of the Nintendo Switch.

In the UK, the standard Nintendo Switch and the OLED Switch are more readily available.

However, it remains to be seen whether the stockouts that have hit retailers in the United States could cross the pond and affect UK stores in 2022.

This year will be an exciting time to own a Nintendo Switch, with many prominent pencil releases.

The biggest of them is arguably The Legend of Zelda Breath of the Wild 2, but there are plenty of other must-see games on the horizon this year.

Other Switch games launching in 2022 include Pokemon Legends Arceus, Kirby and the Forgotten Land, Splatoon 3, Sonic Frontiers, Advance Wars 1 + 2, Bayonetta 3, Triangle Strategy, and more.
