Nintendo Switch Pre Order at Amazon - Starts Friday 12th January 7AM

OK folks, this is it. Amazon is going to open up the pre-orders Friday 13th January at 7am so if you want your Nintendo Switch at launch then be sure to pre-order it while you can.

Directly from Amazon:

Note: Please be advised that Nintendo Switch will be available to pre-order from 07:00 BST Friday, 13 January, 2017. Due to limited stock we are only able to offer one unit per customer per address. We will be fulfilling customer orders in the order in which they were placed.

Tom Kelsey This is going to be one hell of a crazy awesome deal which many will for sure be waiting for that very 07:00 on the clock!

I definitely am! Nintendo stated that they'll be releasing "limited stock" at launch so it's kind of worrisome if anyone wants one at launch because the scalpers will try to get as much stock as possible.

Nice one Rockman - do you know if a price has been confirmed for the Nintendo Switch yet? I saw when it was first announced that a retailer had a best guess at the price and was accepting pre-orders.

Despite having only recently got an xbox one, I have to confess I'm tempted by the switch. Just love me some Mario!

Kelsey Nintendo hasn't confirmed the price but it should be around £200-250. I pre-ordered one already from GameSeek (£198.50) but to be safe, I'll also pre-order at Amazon too.

Brilliant, this is very helpful, thank you for sharing Rockman. Hope you get to pre order your Nintendo Switch. May I suggest you try adding it to basket now so you're ready to check out immediately? If possible.

Hey Tom it'll only be possible to check out during 7am. I imagine Amazon will have enough stock but only for 5-10mins if that much at all.

Knowing how much the Mini NES goes now, the Switch will probably be flipped for more by the darn scalpers. It sucks. Nintendo shouldn't limit the stock.

Tom 5-6am, I'd guess so I'd be ahead if the pre-orders start before 7 for some reason.

Kelsey Can you expire a couple of deals for me. Reported them multiple times yesterday but nothing was done. Best Offer also doesn't expire them when told.

On the note of this deal yeah expensive for what it is. Wish HUKD voting was available here 😄

Dread done 👍

Although please do stick with the reporting system - as whilst it can take some time we do have a system and get through it as best we can.

Interestingly, I personally disagree with how HUKD have voted on the pre-order price. If it's the cheapest / best place to pre-order then in my view it's a deal. Although I get people expressing discontent at the price Nintendo have set.

It makes me cry to see the $299.99 vs £279.99 price difference between the states and here.

Kelsey Yeah tried it multiple times. I wouldn't have thought a lot of expired reports would be coming through and saw people commenting on deals so were about on the site. Duplicates and deals reported need to be done sooner than the next day when so few users are about. I am talking an hour tops. When growing it will only get worse.

You are confusing a price comparison site with a deal site. There is no deal. It is RRP (expensive for what it is) and a new console up for pre order at full price. Anything RRP or above even if in stock isn't a deal. It is just a product for sale.

Hi Kelsey , I pre-ordered it for the time being but £280 really, Nintendo? That feels overpriced which is what Nintendo always does with their products but seeing how reports suggested it'd cost £200-£250 this certainly was unexpected.

At least GameSeek will honour their customers unlike *cough* Base *cough* (they cancelled orders of 3DS games because they mispriced them and couldn't suck it up -- due to this they've lost some customers).

Amazon are not taking any more pre-orders at present (14th Jan).

Note: Please be advised that Amazon has sold through its allocation of Nintendo Switch.

Orders will be fulfilled in the order they are placed as soon as we receive further stock.

It sold out it a matter of a couple of hours which isn't surprising. There are still other retailers available but ultimately, this will look as though it'll be sold out everywhere by the launch date.

Hi Rockman That's what I think too. Few, if any, real reductions to RRP, and not enough stock to satisfy the demand for launch date. It'll probably be a similar story with the first Nintendo Switch games too!
