Cant be that bad, probably a lot of MonHun and Pokemon to be played in those lines.

And they say people in Japan are busy all the time, pshh

Splatoon was a mistake. /s

They need to get the switches in the hands of gamers as soon as possible, more hardware sold more software sold more games developed, good stuff.

Its hard to imagine the switch being that hard to get its in stock in in 11 stores just checking my lists in my country right now (The Netherlands) especially the splatoon bundle is available for 374.00- 379.00 in most stores.

Splatoon 2 Hype!!!!!

Pocky Lover Boy! 

And don't expect those Switch stock problems to be resolved in 2017.

You didn't hear it from me, but the Snes mini may have been fast tracked to this year because of the switch stock problems.



I wonder how many of those people won't be even able to get to buy one...

Edit: Checked the article, a line of 3,000 people for a store with 250 Nintendo Switch's... yikes.

They even had to do a lottery were the winners won the grand prize of getting to pay for a Nintendo Switch, these people were only lining up for the chance to buy one.

It's also rather easily available here in the Helsinki region, in Finland. Only the big stores have some shortages occassionally.

I'd never wait in a line like that, for anything.

Azzanation - "I am starting to really doubt UC4 will outsell Gears 4 let alone Halo 5. Those claiming 10m? Haha okay that was an obvious no before release. It probably won’t do past 6m lifetime."

Uncharted 4 Sales - 11-12m? (Last official: 8.7m Dec 21st 2016)

Azzanation - "like most Sony consoles, they will keep selling the machines for 10 years and claim how good there consoles sell."
