might be worth the gamble, they put up Switch pro controllers also, could be a $229 switch deal

I’m intrigued by what it might be, but that’s a pretty lousy discount for a blind item.

they've done cheap switches in the past, so wouldn't surprise me if it is a switch, take the gamble if you wanna

Could be a Switch, as they're selling controllers for it at the same time.  Also, the Specs say this:
 
Made up specs:
Requirements: You must enjoy fun. Wherever. Whenever.

 

 

Definitely not worth it to me to pay $230 for possibly having a useful $300 item.  If you order it, please report what you get. I am curious nonetheless.

i think it could be a switch based on the clues. the cat saying woof hints at "opposite" or "switch"

F it.  Pulled the trigger. Will report back.  I'll be sorely disappointed if this isn't a brand new nice sweet shiny Sweeeeeitch.

Is Eevee considered a dog? This might be the Pokemon Eevee Switch bundle.

One guy in warios feed noticed it's listed in the headphones section, could be misdirection but who knows

Doubtful since the MSRP on that was $359 and the listing says the MSRP is $299.

Sold out already. I am doing something wrong because I can't blindly blow $229.

I've passed on two of them for $150 and under now. Saw an Atari one at Target for $120 and a display Street Fighter 2 at FYE for $150, which if it were new in the box for $150 I would have bought it. The display unit is in great shape, but I am a CAG after all and would pay no more than $80 for it!

This is what it has come to, loot box electronics?

 

Y'all degens need serious help, and I say that as an Asian with problem gambling genes from both sides of my family.

Woot sells like 1000 things at once, but yeah, they are selling a Switch controller so it's a big clue!  I hope it's garbage so you guys learn your lesson.

It's an OG Playstation.  MSRP was $299, nostalgia is strong.  There was a dog in Silent Hill 2, so the cat saying woof is a clear nod.
