Guys, how long have you followed gaming news? This is normal for Nintendo, they create low stock on purpose. The more unavailable a product is the more desirable it becomes. If a product is too available, people will just wait to see price drops or sales. Its artificial demand.
The same will happen with the launch of ps5, sony will create shortages, to give the impression that its a very desirable product, buy it now before it goes is a very known tactic.
Show me one good piece of evidence that points towards these shortages being artificial. When you can’t, let’s go back to the real world and remember that china( where production of the switch takes place) was, and still is on shutdown
