Hm. When I checked last week, there was stock for hybrid models available at local GameStops and at least a couple of other places nearby. At present, though, it's showing one left of the Animal Crossing bundle at the Walmart closest to me, and a couple of the regular ones at a Target about 30 minutes away. So, uh, yeah. Maybe not consistently in stock. I'll check again in a few days and see if it changes. Lites are pretty easy to come across, though.

Yeah thats how it's been here too, so I don't think it's facing mass shortages where people are waiting weeks to find one or anything like that but it seems like it's selling what it ships pretty quickly leading to inconsistent stock.

So... in USA are supply constrained? Since when? May 2020? Two years?

I personally couldn't say for how long.  I've had my Switch since launch day March 3, 2017.  So, I only occasionally check availability in my area when I see it questioned here in the forums.  I will say that I live in a major metropolitan area, and whenever I have looked in the past year, the hybrid model has been hard to come by while the Lite is much easier to find.
