UK Retailer Has Guaranteed The Switch Preorder Price


Quote:
UK retailer GameSeek is taking preorders for the Nintendo Switch with a guaranteed price of GBP£198.50 (USD$246.79).

Nintendo has yet to announce a set price for its upcoming portable console, so this UK retailer has either let the cat out of the bag, taken a big risk, or has something more nefarious in mind.

$250 is a good price point. If Nintendo can port over digital versions of its Wii U games, a system I skipped, it could close the deal for me.

250$ is the right price, count me in.

Been waiting for a good reason to get back into some Nintendo games

Yeah, shit. Why couldn't they release this for Christmas? Production FAIL.

For $250 I'm going to buy two.

Yeah, $250 for the scrub version. I'll get the deluxe version instead.

The question isn't if your kids are scubs, they are we know already, but whether or not it has enough storage to let your kids actually use it to play video games.

If this price is for the deluxe version it's amazing, especially if said deluxe version doesn't clearly need an upgrade from launch. Or if they just include an SD card slot.

For some, that don't download music, videos, or documents to these things and only play 1 game at a time the 'scrub' version seems logical.

My clean, scholarly children aside, Nintendo has had an SD card slot in all consoles for some time now, right? Is it that pressing of an issue?

Has Nintendo sold in multiple SKUs at launch before? I do not recall it.

I remember waiting in line at midnight for an N64, we expected it to be $300, and the news came down they'd reduced the price overnight to $250. And I think the Wii even went as low as $200 at one point. Stands to reason that the Switch would be able to repeat that price given a year.

I could be wrong, but I thought the wii-u had a couple of SKUs at launch.

This is for the version without the dock. So, there is that.

I honestly just made that up off the top of my head. I'm just assuming that there is going to be something kinda crippling in the cheaper version and the easiest thing to me would seem to be leaving off that TV dock. A lot of younger people might not see the need for that dock.

I get that from the fact that Nintendo doesn't even include a charging cable with the 3DS.

I think all versions will come with the dock. It's basically a pass through device. My guess that the spender models will come with a packed in 32-128 GB SD card, and a wireless controller.
