This bundle comes with a the Nintendo Switch system, The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild game and Expansion Pass (digital), Super Bomberman R and extra gray Joy-Cons.

Nintendo's fastest selling console hit the shelves earlier this month - yes we're talking about the Nintendo Switch.

"The Nintendo Switch is off to a start right now that it could possibly eclipse the Wii".

To put that number in some context, Nintendo only sold 13.5 million Wii U units in that console's entire four-year run on the market. As Nintendo steadily expands the games lineup, it is also beefing up stock availability to as much as 16 million units for just 2017, which will keep the steep premium back to MSRP once supply is high. Not only is the availability for the console limited, the console is now sold out at GameStops and new units will be arriving some time next week, but certain factors like the price may be off-putting. The video game retailer announced on Facebook that they'll be receiving more stock on Wednesday, March 22nd, and also announced a trade-in program to give customers a bonus amount of trade-in credit toward getting a Switch. Creating exclusive games can have been a major selling point for most, probably why the PS4 and XBOX have seen such major commercial success.

The Nintendo Switch has been unfortunately, but unsurprisingly hard to find since its release.

Nintendo Switch is now available worldwide, priced at £279.99 ($299.99).

It seems then that Nintendo has the situation under control and is at the very least aware of what is going on here. If you want to purchase a unit, you'll have to line up with everybody else on your nearest Gamestop store by March 22 to be able to get a chance to get one. So if you don't make it to Gamestop's cutoff, what's a few more days?
