#NintendoNES #NintendoSwitch – Nintendo Switch Stock Issues Solved; Restocking of NES Classic Edition Addressed : The demands for Nintendo’s newest consoles the Switch and the NES Classic Edition brought commotion in the gaming world. The issue of restocking was not only faced by gamers but retailers as well.
However, while the Nintendo Switch is still short on stock, and the fans who pre-ordered are still waiting for their consoles, it seems like there is hope in sight. A report from Express UK said that Gamestop will be restocking the Switch.
Gamestop confirmed that they will be restocking the Nintendo Switch on March 22. Buyers who get a new Switch now will also benefit from updates from Nintendo’s end including the issues with its left Joy-Con controller.
The popularity of Nintendo Switch is mainly attributed to the portability it offers, a hybrid game console that provides amazing gaming experience as what stationary consoles provide. Gamer concerns were pointed out to the sticker price which was $10 higher than on PS4, Xbox One, and Wii U.
The Nintendo Switch has already sold more than 1.5 million units and is on the way to hit 2 million by the end of March. The new demands may lead manufacturers to produce 16 million units instead of the 8 million-unit original plan.
Industry leaders are confident that the Nintendo Switch may surpass the Nintendo Wii. With around 100 million units sold today, it is no doubt that the Nintendo Wii was the most popular gaming console.
Nintendo fans who couldn’t afford the Nintendo Switch opted for the cheaper one which is the NES Classic Edition. Costing only $59.99, the NES Classic Edition is indeed cheaper; however, the console is not an easy buy.
Another good news is on the way, according to Nintendo Wire, Best Buy will also be restocking the Nintendo Switch and the NES Classic Edition. Best Buy confirmed on their Twitter account that the Nintendo Switch and the NES Classic Edition will be available online, but still in “limited quantities”.
