You prefer a Nintendo Switch You should take good care of your console: replacements are currently only available at horrendous prices. Nintendo has been happy about good sales figures for a long time - but the fact that the Switch could actually be sold out is something that the Japanese console manufacturer could probably only have dreamed of. The alternative: a Nintendo Switch Lite. They still exist.
The Nintendo Switch has been sold out
Already at the end of March the sales seemed to indicate only one thing: Hurry up, it's over soon! And in fact, the Nintendo Switch is no longer available almost two weeks later - at least not at normal prices. In online shops and on auction platforms, the prices sometimes double the usual rate. Even used, sellers charge more money for the Nintendo Switch than would otherwise be the original price.
Is that only in Germany? Not at all. All over the world, the Nintendo Switch has become a rare commodity - "Corona" is driving players in front of the screens. In the US, even Nintendo itself confirms the current status. Accordingly, the "Nintendo Switch is sold out at various retailers in the United States". However, further systems are already in preparation.
Analyst and industry insider Daniel Ahmad has also commented on the scarcity of the Nintendo Switch. According to him, April will be a "difficult month" in terms of the Switch offering. The situation will not recover, at least not in the short term. In May, probably more likely June - that is at least the time when German online retailers signal replenishment in their shop information - the stocks could normalize again. Nintendo is currently producing under high pressure as far as the Corona situation allows. It will probably take around two months for the population to reach a normal level.

Wer Nintendo-Switch-Spiele spielen will, muss also warten oder alternativ die Handheld-Variante Nintendo Switch Lite kaufen, die ist nämlich überall noch erhältlich – und zwar zu normalen Handelspreisen. So kostet die Nintendo Switch Lite in der Farbe Geld 214 Euro, die rosafarbene („Koralle“) ist vorbestellbar für den 24. April und schlägt mit rund 220 Euro zu Buche.
