True. I saw last night on YT the Nintendo presentation live from Tokyo and the uploader seems to think that whoever wants to preorder the Switch that should do it now 'cause the demand will outpace what's available (probably not as bad as the NES Mini, 'cause he thinks the product is not competitive (higher price / lower value) w/PS4 and Xbox consoles on sale now).
The launch date is March 3rd, 2017 (2.5 months from now) and very few (< 10 so far) games are scheduled to ship at launch date. AFAIK, Nintendo will not bundle any game w/the hybrid console at launch and seems they may have to BOTH lower the price and bundle more stuff into console sales sooner than expected.
As if anything Japanese Nintendo marketing suits probably hadn't learned from the Wii debacles, the most interesting game of the few at launch, the new Zelda game (no Mario game at launch, 2 new games will be available later in '17), will launch the Wii version on the same date as the Switch (???).
its 299 everywhere so limited quantity is a joke they will have a lot on stock because its nintendo last hope before going the same way SEGA did.. the NEW NES was limited. the switch will be all around at march.
299 for xbox 360 power and just a new zelda and reheated mario kart, doesnt look good.
