The Quest to Find a Nintendo Switch Thread

You guys think it's too early in the console's lifecycle for a bundle?

I'm getting a Switch before Splatoon 2.  That's my "must have" game.

 

While I haven't seen a Switch on the shelves yet, I also haven't been trying too hard to snag one.

 

I'm just worried I find one in the next week or so, and then there's some sort of special Splatoon 2 bundle...

Basically finding them every couple of weeks. It's funny how the craiglisters are still trying to make an easy $70+ profit on these. Anyone patient can grab one soon enough, if not already. One guy wanted a PS4 Pro + $200 in cash for a neon Switch.

There's a Splatoon 2 bundle announced for Japan and Europe, and will likely come here as well. Did you wait?

These are appearing at target. Also found some at a few Walmart stores.

As much as I'd love to get a Switch (and believe me, I'm chomping at the bit), I think I'll wait til there's a decent bundle with at least one game and an extra set of controllers for less than an arm and a leg.

I honestly don't think there will be a bundle like that. I haven't seen Nintendo or any other company release a system bundle with two controllers and a game since the snes with the Super Mario bundle.
There might be a Splatoon 2 or Mario bundle later this year though.
I believe Japan is the only one getting a bundle right now.

There won't be a Switch bundle with a second set of Joy-cons.   Nintendo sell those things for $80.  For decades the point has been for companies to keep the introductory system price as low as possible.  With a bundle, you're hoping for a heavily discounted game or an alternate system color at best.

Welp, I guess I need to make a friend with a target employee so I can get my 5% off my switch when they get in stock.

 

I can't seem to get a tracker to work with the switch at target.

Just called target yesterday and they said "we get trucks everyday, and we never know what's on them until they pull the stuff off the truck."

 

Fuck

I was able to just watch stock at Walmart via the brickseeker and I called a couple on Friday to see if they had any one said it had 3 on Friday but they didn't have any so when i checked the stock on Sunday morning 5:30am they had 7ish so I called and they had 4. Drove 30mins to the store and picked one up.

FYI:
Also after talking to some Walmart employees they get their trucks around 7-9pm at night in my area and some of them put there stock out one it gets off the truck and others wait till the morning shift for electronics comes in.

Anyone order a Switch bundle from Walmart on Friday 6/2?  My order has said "processing" since Friday, so I'm a little concerned it won't ship.

My local Best Buy (Bowie, MD) restocked today around 5 EST. They had about 7. Ended up getting one for my brother.

You're likely right, I was probably being naive to hope for two controllers. I'll just wait for a good bundle that hopefully includes 1-2 games at least.

Brickseek showed "limited availability - 0" (which means 1) at a Walmart this morning my wife drives by on her way to work.

She was able to swing by and pick it up for me!

 

Now, I wish I had picked up Bomberman when it was on sale at Best Buy!  :/

Nice Rig! You'll have to tell us what you think of it and any other games you pick up.

Idk if anyone else experienced this, but I got a Walmart bundle with the charge grip and Super Bomberman R 3 weeks ago.  I of course returned the charge grip and the game.  The game and charge grip only cost $85 with tax.  I got $90 back for the return.  Weird but beneficial.

I've still yet to see a switch in real life, as far as I'm concerned they don't exist  :cry:

Ditto. I'm getting really discouraged.

 

I'm baffled as to why Amazon doesn't offer them directly, but they list a bunch of resellers who are charging a $100+ premium.

Are you guys using Brickseek?  That's how I got my Switch.  Just check most mornings and you'll see them eventually show up at Walmart or Target. 

 

It was also (rumored) that a number of stores are getting them on Friday with the Splatoon 2 release.
