Nintendo Switch Stocks Available For Pre-Order At GameStop; Brace Yourself For A $500 Bundle

Apr 21, 2017 07:00 AM EDT | Andrew Davis

While stocks for the Nintendo Switch are as elusive, almost, as its cousin the Nintendo NES Classic Mini console, it appears that the hybrid console is available for pre-order at GameStop. However, the price may have been a bit higher, although reasonable considering it is bundled with two of its best games.

In the UK, stocks of the hybrid console have become somewhat under control, but this is far from the case in the United States. In fact, brick-and-mortar stores are the best options for obtaining one, that is, if you are determined enough to search for one and stocks don't run out that fast.

Thus, GameStop has bundled the Nintendo Switch console for $500. The hybrid console comes with physical copies of the "The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild" and "Mario Kart 8 Deluxe." The expansion pass off "Breath of the Wild" is also included along with a 128 GB microSD card with adapter. And don't worry as the gray or neon Joy-Cons are also part of the bundle.

The only catch is that if you pre-order now on GameStop's website, it will be shipped to you on May 5. At least you are guaranteed you own hybrid console and its hottest games.

At first, of course, consumers might think that this is seemingly a bit high for the console's price, but this is one of the most reasonable bundles the retailer has come up with. And if buyers really add up everything including the $60 tag on the microSD card, then it is understandable that they are not being overcharged for this.

But note that once the item is sold as part of a bundle, then it will not be applicable for return unless the bundle is returned complete and in sealed new condition.

Since its launch in early March, stocks of the Nintendo Switch has been sold out. In fact, GameStop said that "supply issues could last all year."Also, since many are looking for the hybrid console, it will be no surprise that GameStop's bundle will also be sold out soon. So, if you want to grab your own copy, better get ready to shell out some cash.
