Black Friday Deals Tracker is Live

Video game retailer GameStop launched two low priced Nintendo Switch bundles.

Last week new Nintendo Switch inventory arrived in stores. Amazon, Best Buy and ToysRUs had big Switch sales events. This week the availability of the Nintendo Switch is expected to be limited again.

Update May 23: GameStop just dropped the prices of their Nintendo Switch bundles even further. The two new Nintendo Switch Bundles sell for less than $400. These bundles will sell out quickly.

GameStop is the only place to find the Nintendo Switch in stock online. GameStop has been selling Switch bundles online for the past weeks. Every couple days GameStop changes the Switch bundles. The currently available Nintendo Switch bundles are the lowest priced since a long time.

The Nintendo Switch Gray Joy-Con Zelda Starter Bundle is on sale for $432.99 and includes the Nintendo Switch Console with Gray Joy-Con, Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild (Physical Game), Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild Expansion Pass (Digital Download), Has-Been Heroes (Digital Game), Snipperclips (Digital Game), and the Nintendo Switch ZAGG Invisible Shield One Screen Protector.

The Nintendo Switch Neon Joy-Con Mario Kart Starter Bundle, selling for the same $432.99 price includes Nintendo Switch Console with Neon Red and Blue Joy-Con, Mario Kart 8 Deluxe (Physical Game), Nintendo Switch ZAGG Invisible Shield One Screen Protector, Nintendo Switch Racing Wheel 2 Pack, Has-Been Heroes (Digital Game), and Shovel Knight: Treasure Trove (Digital Game).

The digital game downloads are the only thing that are not essential buys for Nintendo Switch owners. Each bundle contains a must-have Switch game the essential screen protector almost all Switch owners are getting. The bundle price is only about $40 above what reseller charge on amazon.com for the console. GameStop will ship the new Nintendo Switch starter bundles on June 2nd.

A Switch sale that we know is coming up this week is hosted by Walmart. Walmart is expected to sell the Nintendo Switch again online at 5pm ET on Friday. Shoppers can get notified when the sale begins with The Tracker app.

The Nintendo Switch reseller markups keep steady and range today between $91 to $100 for the Nintendo Switch with Gray Joy-Con and $99 to $130 for the Nintendo Switch with Neon Joy-Con on amazon.com. Getting a bundle from an official store makes sense as long as customers wanted to by the bundle games anyway.

Our new online inventory tracker app, The Tracker, will send a notification when the Nintendo Switch is spotted in stock at major online retailers including Amazon.com.

Nintendo is ramping up the production for the Nintendo Switch, but has not disclosed what the current production capacity per month is. The only number the company made official is the production volume over the next 12 months. 10 million Switch consoles are planned to enter retail channels until end of April 2018. The demand for the Nintendo Switch will spike during the Holiday Shopping season 2017. Nintendo will set aside a large part of the Switch production during the next months for November and December. This stock piling will keep the Nintendo Switch in short supply during the next 5 months.

As Nintendo coordinated new Switch console shipment with the launch of Mario Kart 8, we expect the company to do the same for the next major Switch game launches. The big upcoming Switch games are Arms on June 16 and Splatoon 2 on July 21. Amazon offers pre-order discounts on both of the titles for Prime members to the tune of 20%.

There are also several new accessories coming on the market from Nintendo in the next weeks. See the full list of new Nintendo Switch accessories.
