Nintendo Switch Up for Pre-Order on GameStop
Highlights
  • GameStop Italy has listed the Nintendo Switch for pre-order
  • The price is steeper than initial leaks, making it possibly a placeholder
  • The Nintendo Switch is out in March

The Nintendo Switch price or release date may not have been officially revealed by Nintendo but that hasn’t stopped retailers from listing it for pre-order.

GameStop Italy has put up a pre-order page for the Nintendo Switch. It states a price of 399.98 Euros (approximately Rs. 28,500), which is around 100 Euros more than what was leaked prior. Quite possibly a placeholder price.

Though nothing has been said of its raw performance numbers, developer kits allegedly sport the following specifications:

  • Four ARM Cortex-A57 cores, max 2GHz
  • Nvidia second-generation Maxwell architecture
  • 256 CUDA cores, max 1GHz, 1024 FLOPS/cycle
  • 4GB RAM (25.6 GB/s, VRAM shared)
  • 32 GB storage (Max transfer 400 MB/s)
  • USB 2.0 and 3.0
  • 1280 x 720 6.2-inch IPS LCD
  • 1080p at 60 fps or 4k at 30 fps max video output
  • Capacitance method, 10-point multi-touch

It will be interesting to see how close the retail unit is to its developer kit. Earlier, we reported that the Nintendo Switch would be priced from $249 (around Rs. 17,000) onwards. It appears that this will be the case. UK-based retailer Gameseek has the console listed for £198.50. This puts it in line with the anticipated pricing outed by LetsPlayVideoGames’ Laura Kate Dale.

“UK specialist gaming retail chain GAME has been informed of the Nintendo Switch’s wholesale price to retailers, and is planning on selling their basic SKU (stock keeping unit) of the system in stores for £199.99,” a post on LetsPlayVideoGames read at the time. “We have also learned that a separate SKU featuring more internal storage and a packed in game is planned to sell at £249.99.” This will, if Nintendo’s plans bear fruition, result in a dollar pricing of $249.99 (approximately Rs. 17,000) and $299.99 (around Rs. 20,250) respectively.
