Unfortunately, if you are hoping to get a Nintendo Switch, it looks like third-party retailers and opportunistic individuals are taking advantage of the situation and are marking up the prices considerably. For example, third-party resellers on Amazon are now asking for $460 to $500 for a brand new Switch console.
This is at least a 50% markup where the MSRP of a brand new Nintendo Switch is at $299.99 on a regular day. Even platforms such as eBay are seeing a markup in prices where some are selling brand new Switch consoles for $410, while pre-owned consoles are being sold at around $360.
The good news is that if you’re not in any rush to get the Switch, Nintendo has announced that more units are expected to be coming in soon. In a statement released by the company, “Nintendo Switch hardware is selling out at various retail locations in the US, but more systems are on the way. We apologize for any inconvenience.”
