I'd rather camp out at Gamestop then waste energy on getting this guy to give me one.

Wow, for all the panic and worry when this was initially announced... I'm surprisingly calm and not pissed about missing it on Amazon and BBY. It only lasted half hour on each site, even after being put up on off-hours and after Nintendo said they're be much more supply. Heh... 

 

I guess I pretty much expected to miss it.

He's not even going to get those lol watch him end up with 1.

Have a feeling BBY will do the same and limit it to 1.

Waiting for Best Buy to cancel orders now.

They already started doing so to people who ordered more than 3, according to various outlets and social media posts.

You have no idea how badly I want to just post on the preorder availability thread

Amazon sold out? That bites. I was signed up for alerts on what I thought was the official listing. Dang...

In the sense that you can add them to cart and then do jackshit after they're in cart, yeah

It's very possible whatever people preordered in the middle of the night is just a glitch / mistake. Amazon still hasn't updated the new listing with pics.

I saw someone post that they got like 30 on the order. Also Amazon customer service reps said it was real. They slid it under the radar at 5AM so their servers didn't crash.

The Tracker app sometimes provides false alerts but the majority of the time it is accurate. The app sent an alert for BB and I just happened to be awake (watching Queen of the South on DVR). I slept through the Amazon alerts.

Well, just shot off an upset email to Amazon customer support on it. I know it won't do me any good, but this is frustrating lol.

I do not have much faith in the Amazon pre-orders. After the Walmart Fiasco I won't feel safe until I have a console in hand.

I have really come to despise Nintendo. Sad really since I grew up with them. I was even thinking of buying a Switch. Oh wait, I can't even buy their LATEST console due to stock issues, much less this thing. Unless I want to buy an expensive bundle from FlipStop. Done for good with this company.

Trust me, I am still praying that my amazon.co.uk and/or game.co.uk orders will ship...

I'm a glutten for punishment. Much like picking women that are wrong for me over and over, I would buy a Switch today if I saw one on the shelf.

Called one of my local GameStops to see if they'd heard anything about today's mystery "announcement,." He had heard vague stuff but didn't know anything and woudn't take my number to call if it popped up. I called another store and that guy was more than happy to jot down my number, so I'm more than happy to throw that guy my pre-order if it happens.

I got SMS alert yesterday to confirm from Gamestop so maybe it is online. If it is, it's day time, their servers will get DDoSed
