It's a console pre-order, but not as you know it. If you're tired of all the PS5 pre-order news going around, you'll want to retreat to those well trodden Nintendo Switch deals, and now's just the time to do so. Amazon has the Nintendo Switch in stock for its $299 MSRP right now, though you'll be waiting a little while to get your hands on one.
This new stock follows months of silence from both Nintendo and retailers usually offering Nintendo Switch deals. With stock plummeting over the course of the global pandemic, it was difficult to imagine a time when the Joy-Con would flow freely again.
That time has now come, and while this is a pre-order for future stock Amazon is expecting to receive, we still wouldn't sleep on it. Best Buy and other retailers have seen their own sparse inventories wiped out every time they've offered a Nintendo Switch deal this week, so Amazon's units won't last long.
You'll find more information on this deal just below, but you can also browse our full round up of the best Nintendo Switch deals available now. Or, check out the latest Nintendo Switch Lite bundles hitting the market.
