Nintendo Switch pre order sellout sends gamers hunting

Nintendo Switch pre order sellout sends gamers hunting

Arms, EA's new fighting game for Nintendo Switch, is playable with standard button controls, Nintendo has confirmed.

If you slept on getting your Nintendo Switch pre-order in, you may end up disappointed come March 3, with just about every retailer selling out of their initial stock. The preorders have been announced a few days ago but it seems that retailers have been unable to cope up with the demand as it has been listed as unavailable. So all we know is that GameStop sold out of anywhere between 1 (a singular console) and 2 million Nintendo Switch consoles. Nintendo clearly believes the Switch will be primarily used within gamers' homes, while the mobile functionality of the console will simply be an added bonus for those who want to take it on trips or to friends' houses.

For a very long time, Nintendo didn't require you to pay for a subscription to play online multiplayer.

Adam Lallana transfer: Liverpool midfielder target for Juventus and Barcelona
It is for this reason, likely, that Barcelona are interested as they appear to be getting ready to dump Ivan Rakitic. Reports in England claim Juventus are vying with Barcelona and Paris Saint-Germain for Liverpool's Adam Lallana.


Nintendo meant to ship two million units during the Nintendo Switch's launch month, but taking in consideration the high number of pre-orders, one has to wonder if two million is enough.

Nintendo did not specify the processor of the gaming system but it was revealed that it houses an Nvidia Tegra processor. Though this can decrease over time as is the case with most rechargeable batteries. The Japanese gaming company has estimated that the launch title "The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild" can last up to 3 hours on the handheld.

"I think there's a sense that Nintendo Switch is a portable device". If so, where did you get yours?
