Nintendo Switch Stock Update for August 28

The Nintendo Switch availability in stores and online on Monday, August 28.

On Monday, August 28, the Nintendo Switch availability online is again limited to a single retailer. GameStop continues to offer eight Nintendo Switch bundles starting at $389.99 from gamestop.com.

The $299.99 Nintendo Switch could be stock at your local GameStop store. The video game retailer lets you check for in-store pickup for the unbundled Switches online at gamestop.com. Walmart and Target stores show also inventory. See details below.

The demand for the Nintendo Switch has slowed down noticeably in the US. It's the middle of the summer, and we don't see many consumers search for the Nintendo Switch availability or complain about on social media that they cannot find out. This also now starts to be reflected in reseller prices for the Nintendo Switch. Markups are down to as low as $65 on amazon.com.

The Nintendo Switch is available online from reseller market places on Amazon and eBay since the release of the console in March. Reseller mark ups have been well above $100 earlier this year. The Nintendo Switch dealer markups have come down now quite a bit. The Nintendo Switch with Gray Joy-Con can be found for $365, and the Nintendo Switch with Neon Joy-Con starts at $370 from legit looking resellers on amazon.com.

The demand for the Nintendo Switch will sky rocket in November. Nintendo said again to ramp up production of the Nintendo Switch in time for the Holiday shopping season. The Japanese video maker needs to ship significantly more Nintendo Switch units in November and December to make sure most kids who have Switch on their Christmas wish-list will find one under their Christmas tree.

Nintendo revealed on July 26 that the company had sold 4.70 million Nintendo Switch consoles from the March 3 launch to June 30. Nintendo kept the forecast for Nintendo Switch sales at 10 million units until March 2018. This has interpreted as a sign of production issues, making the Switch a "hard to find item" when the Holiday shopping season comes around.

To find Nintendo Switch in stock online at the $299.99 price, you can get our new The Tracker app, available as free download for iOS and Android.

The Nintendo Switch will continue to be hard to find for the foreseeable future. Nintendo plans to ship 10 million consoles worldwide in the time from April 2017 to April 2018. From the launch on Mach 3 to June 30, the Japanese video game company sold 4.70 million Switch consoles.

The Nintendo Switch reseller markups dropped to $70 for the Nintendo Switch with Gray Joy-Con on amazon.com. Prices have been well over $100 earlier this year.

When is Nintendo Switch in stock online again?

Nintendo is ramping up the production for the Nintendo Switch but has not disclosed what the current production capacity per month is. 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 five months.

As Nintendo coordinated new Switch console shipment with the launch of Mario Kart 8 and Splatoon 2, we expect the next major supply wave is coming in time for the Super Marion Odyssey release in October. Amazon offers the Super Mario Odyssey game for $47.99 for Prime members.

The Nintendo Switch will likely be offered in exclusive bundles in time for the Holidays. A Mario Kart 8 Deluxe Switch bundle has already surfaced in Russia. Because of the incredible demand for the Switch console, the monetary savings on these bundles will be limited. Usually, bundles offer a way for consumers to get a free game. Nintendo can afford just to offer some savings unless the demand is slowing down. Read the latest Nintendo Switch news.

Nintendo Switch in Stock at Stores

The Switch is reported to be available in 1,754 Walmart stores and 890 Target stores locations according to the Nintendo Switch inventory tracker iStockNow (6:30 am ET).

The above numbers need to be put in perspective to the number of stores each retailer operates in the United States. There are 4,400 GameStop locations, 1,800 Target stores and 5,000 Walmart stores in the US. This means that the chances to find a Switch in stock at your local retail outlet are not that great.
