website doesn't work currently due to PS5 preorder fiasco, but you can currently go into the app and order it.

There was a small quantity of extra stock Nintendo was planning on releasing, revealed in a news blurp yesterday.  It looks like Nintendo still likes GameStop and gave at least some to them for sales.

 

Good timing, since even regular dock Switches are hard to find, let alone a limited addition.  Early Christmas shopping FTW.

 

The website does work, it just takes like 20'ish minutes to "connect" from the queue.  The order went through just fine after that.

Probably worth it if you like the design and don't already have a Switch. I really like the design, but already have a Switch.

I had it in my cart and when I checkout, it was gone☹️ They should at least give a couple minutes to checkout.  It would’ve been a great present for my friend’s birthday.

Now available on Best Buy.  Was showing many nearby stores as "available in 1 hour" so they're probably instore too at this point.

Yes! Got one at Best Buy.


How much do you think I could get for my old switch? It’s the newer version.

$175 at GameStop towards a next gen. I’m general probably pretty close to full price since everywhere is still sold out everywhere of systems.

I appreciate the help but I’m not gonna let gamestop take me for a ride. I was thinking about Craigslist or amazon marketplace.

$300 pretty easily if you throw in a case and memory card.

Worth it. To me it’s upgrading style and a new warranty!

I wish I had seen this before I finalized my order with GS including digital AC. I definitely checked the website, and was even at a Best Buy, and couldn’t find it.

Nice to see it's available to those who still want one without paying ridiculous prices. Really like the dock and joycons in this set.

I think they made more. Pretty sure I saw someone mention months ago (not sure it was someone worth listening to) how the original run of the AC version was cut short by COVID and as Nintendo has tried to ramp up production, they mainly focused on the Lites and standard colors since those were "easier" to make or something.

They totally did. What's odd is they had supply constraints all summer with Covid so spinning this edition back up in their factory is pretty interesting considering the additional investment on their part at no cost to the consumer. You can sell a standard switch on Ebay close to retail based on said supply issues. I sold an Xbox One S $260 and bought the Cyberpunk Xbox One X for $300 a month or so ago.

 

Either way it's been crazy that resale of systems has been at an all time high all year make upgrades a pretty reasonable proposition. Finally, chatting at Gamestop for the first time possibly this year, they said they cut off buying tons of items for months which decimated used inventory of high demand stuff. No idea what exactly that meant but I noted at the time that you couldn't buy an Xbox One S anywhere which clearly explained the demand on Ebay.

I got an email this week from best buy for a cardmember mystery offer. When you click on it, it says $25 off when you spend $250 on your BB card by 9/27. I hope this counts towards that. The fine print at the bottom did NOT list any exclusions, so fingers crossed.

Edit— actually, I may not qualify for the bonus $25 certificate. I couldn’t have it shipped to me, so I did “ship to store” and it won’t be there til 10/1. I believe the card won’t be charged until I pick it up, so I probably won’t be eligible. :(

My guess is that it does work. If not a simple phone call will resolve that issue. In my experience, BB will take care of the customer

I wish they would sell the docks and joycons separately. Can't imagine the profit margin on the docks or joycons isn't quite a bit higher than the system... but who knows. I guess they want / consumers want that illusion of rarity  :bomb: I just wouldn't mine swapping out docks every few months.  O:)

Why sell JUST the dock for $50 or JUST the Joy-Cons for $80... when they can sell you the whole thing for $300?

I'm going to get one of these docks so I can have one in the living room.

Thank you for the link. I gave up hope in getting this edition because I figured they stopped production on it. The AC series was never for me but this color palette and design is too beautiful to pass up.

In my area they're all selling on offerup and craigslist for about $500. Normal switches going for about 300. Then again, whenever gamestop gets a console they barely have time to unpack it before someones ready to buy it and everywhere is sold out due to covid.
