      Shame the shipping is a killer compared to EB though

      •  

        I just checked and it is an extra $2 for me. Not too bad.

        Are you really going to stinge over delivery on a switch thats probably never going to be restocked again and will sell for twice the retail in like a year.

        •  

          I am not.. i got mine from EB but the shipping at GM has always been awful, so i checked to see

  •  

    What are the chances that the price will go down same as pre-COVID time (like before we could find these sorts of bundles around $400ish)

    • +10 votes

      You will probably never see the Animal crossing edition cheaper than this. The normal switch yes.

    •  

      Not many. There is lots of demand and not enough supply at the moment.
      should the recession come in and people stop buying altogether then prices may drop.

    •  

      You will not get an ACNH Switch again after this i suspect

      regular switch maybe and unlikely this year given how restricted stock is world wide atm

    •  

      Not a chance, even if a third restock wave was to come it will be sold out as fulll RRP pre-orders

      Have seen these selling for over $1000 on ebay/gumtree/facebook…

      •  

        yes but now likely another few 1000 will hit the market

    YOU SHALL NOT PASS.

    Damnit. Site is dead

    •  

      Getting Ozbargained. lol

    •  

      And it’s gone

  •  

    Is Australia the only one getting a restock?

    •  

      Hongkong, Macao, Japan and South Korea are waiting for their 3rd restock.

  •  

    stuff it i will wait for jb hifi. pretty sure most retailers would have it in stock soon

    •  

      Did they get it originally?

      •  

        i actually have no idea :) But since I dont game that much and legit just like the color, its not a big deal for me if I do miss out

      •  

        Yes.

    •  

      Did you manage to get one from JB?
      They dropped it at Midnight and it was sold out pretty fast

    bought one, thanks

    Thanks OP, managed to get one before the site went down. Fingers crossed the order won't get cancelled.

  •  

    Legit just called the store and they said they don't even have it set up yet, they don't know how many deliveries they'll receive etc. So I'm not sure how you guys manage to order? Page also goes to a dead link…

    • +1 vote

      A bit late to the party mate. They were up but all gone now.

  •  

    Oh no! You found a Dead Link!

  •  

    Would people recommend this or a PS4 for home? I have a friend with 2 kids (8 and 5) and I have a PS4 Pro but have never used the Switch myself and they are interested to know which one would be better for them… interested in opinions on this…

    • +4 votes

      Switch games tend to be all ages while PS4 are aimed to mature aged audience. I recommend Switch for kids that age

      • +1 vote

        I second that. PS4 has more games with gore and expletives. Whereas switch is more family friendly.

        I have both systems

        • -1 vote

          Incorrect.
          The PS4 has more games than the switch, which means more kid friendly games than the switch does, it just happens to ALSO have more adult/mature games than the Switch.
          They dont have to play the adult games just because they exist.

    • +3 votes

      This is a no-brainer, the Switch is the console you want for kids that age. PS4 doesn't even hold a candle to Switch in that age bracket i'm afraid.

    • +1 vote

      Ive got both and the kids prefer the switch, mainly for convenience and AC. Games arent as cheap as PS4 though.

  •  

    Is this ok for the US ?

    • +1 vote

      Switch is itself is region free but you will need a travel adapter to convert the power pack from an Aussie to a US plug.

    i already seen like 4 - 5 new listings on ebay selling it for 800 - 1000 lol

  •  

    how did they manage to get more stock of an limited item

    • +1 vote

      Couple weeks ago this console got restocked on Amazon JP and UK, and according to Nintendo they are back in production.

    •  

      they were never limited, only a special edition

      •  

        ohh right. thanks for info.

  •  

    Found it expensive without the game, I got the $449 for normal switch with the game a few hours ago.

    But if Nintendo will start production again it won't be an item hard to get.

    •  

      it sold out instantly… and likely last batch

    •  

      where/when did you get $449 with the game?

    •  

      This limited edition switch resells for an insane amount. Ive seen people pay $800-1000 for this design. It's crazy

      •  

        I know it’s crazy but I’m happy with my purchase :)

  • +6 votes

    I was on the first minute to add this to my cart and nearly paid. But my friend told me that the Nintendo said they will keep providing this version. After considering a while why I should buy this instead of normal one for under $400, It's nearly $100 extra for just a color. I finally gave up. I am not a reseller and never sell the stuff I bought.

    •  

      Good call ultimately. I am just saying this based on nothing but speculation though, that these won’t be made again. The reason there’s a second batch is due to the fact they probably ramped up production on grey/neon as they were flying off of the shelves. But they didn’t hit the number they wanted to make for this edition. I could be and hope to be wrong so more can get their hands on them instead of resellers, but that’s my 2c

    •  

      You could sold this easily for min $200 bucks profit all platforms . The crazy demand is only because of the design let the market dictate the happening lol .

    •  

      These will be strictly limited, across all consoles how many do you know of have big print runs? Better to call it a day and work on the next best thing.

  •  

    I don't even play ac but I'd want this just for the colours of the joycons ^^"

    •  

      There is colour skins available online for the switch and the joycons - see etsy and dbrand for examples

      •  

        yea I buy the silicon ones for all my controllers normally, but I feel like it'll look pretty bad because they are never perfect fit and you would be able to see the red and blue come through around the edges.
        Colours clashing=ew=ruined

  •  

    There’s some on eBay right now stocked by Dick Smith and Kogan for $515 + delivery!

  •  

    just checked bank account. the money for pre order was not charged. but have received order confirmation email and order history in gamesmen account page. Any ideas? floks

    •  

      I think they charge your card prior to shipping from memory

    •  

      It shows the charge as pending in my bank account. I did choose pickup in store if that changes anything.
