We know when the Nintendo Switch will be released, and we know the basic details about what makes it different from the PS4 and Xbox One. So the biggest remaining question is definitely… how much will it cost? Today, we might have gotten our answer.
Toys R Us Canada is currently offering shoppers the chance to purchase a Switch system for $330 CAN, which roughly converts to $243 in the US. It’s possible this number is just a placeholder, but a retailer across the Atlantic is rumored to be readying a similar sale price. According to Let’s Play Video Games, UK retailer GAME is said to be planning to sell the Nintendo Switch for £200, which converts to $250 in the US.
If Nintendo is shooting for a global price point for the Switch that undercuts both Sony and Microsoft (and why wouldn’t they), $250 definitely seems like a good target to aim for.
Nintendo has announced plans to officially unveil the Switch’s retail price on January 12, so we’ll find out if these rumors are on the mark in less than two months.
