Yes, though it definitely won't be priced like that.

Around $600 (1900+) as I said is my guess for the official pricing.

If by any change it is, though, and there is some good BF deal (for around $300), I might get one... maybe xD

Does this affect the black market price of the console? Or do they generally stay the same?

If it comes for the lower price (1400~) it'll definitely affect it, because there would be no point paying the same for it there if you can get on an official way.

If it comes for the price I expect (1900+) probably not, maybe we shall see some of the smaller prices out there getting higher as it'll still be lower than the official by some amount to keep the attention and the seller can profit more. (For example, I bought Disgaea 5 for the PS4 for 190 before it was announced for the Switch, it came for around 350~400 for the Switch here, and the PS4 version is now around 260 on the same site I got it, yup.)

The biggest issue is the pricing for the games.

If we can get NS games for as lower as Sony games, the system would see a substantial growth in sales. (For example I can pre order GoW right now for 160, while I need around 350 to get Zelda, so yeah...)

if you know how to search you can get games for a good price, I buy physical games for switch in the launch always around BRL 230-250, you also find the most popular games like mario, mario kart and zelda around Brl 200 on sites such as bigboygames, zigstore, olx and mercadolivre that are escape options for avoid to pay exorbitant prices, for example recently I paid BRL 150 in mario + rabbids (used but with few days of use), Brl 140 in Rayman Legends (sealed ), Brl 140 Doom (used with few days of use too), Brl 100 Disgaea 5 complete (used), Brl 160 Resident evil revelations Collection (sealed) and BRL 110 Sonic Forces (Used), of course which doesnt compare to the prices of ps4 or xbox one games, but still good prices for imported games.

Like Shikamo said, you need to know where to buy. I've never paid more than R$ 240 for a new Nintendo game. 350 is way too much even for the grey market,I don't have trouble finding third party Switch games for 180-190 for example.



Not going to work, will probably have to be imported which will make the prices high. Combine this with the culture in brazil to complain about everything that is legally imported or produced because is more expensive than grey markets and you have a recipe for failure. Unfortunately. Its a big market with a huge potential.



Around the Network

A little update: Bayonetta 2 is sold out on both official stores and pretty much everywhere. Surprised that people actually jump for it.

Also as of today the game got rated officially (Yesterday wasn't) and also Payday 2.

By the way, how ironic it is that the first two games Nintendo will officially bring to Brazil one is about stealing and the other one features a chick showing her butt on the cover? :P

if you know how to search you can get games for a good price, I buy physical games for switch in the launch always around BRL 230-250, you also find the most popular games like mario, mario kart and zelda around Brl 200 on sites such as bigboygames, zigstore, olx and mercadolivre that are escape options for avoid to pay exorbitant prices, for example recently I paid BRL 150 in mario + rabbids (used but with few days of use), Brl 140 in Rayman Legends (sealed ), Brl 140 Doom (used with few days of use too), Brl 100 Disgaea 5 complete (used), Brl 160 Resident evil revelations Collection (sealed) and BRL 110 Sonic Forces (Used), of course which doesnt compare to the prices of ps4 or xbox one games, but still good prices for imported games.

I know how to search.

Unless you mean some ML offer that pops here and there there is no way you are getting close to those prices, and of course I meant about new games, not used.

The cheaper I can find Zelda for Switch is 260 going from a store I never heard about through Americanas.

Btw ZigStore doesn't even exist anymore, Big Boy Games bought them around 15 days ago, I keep constant searches on several stores regularly, granted I'm almost always looking for PS games and just here and there I check Nintendo, but the average price is definitely between 320 and 350 for Zelda which is the one I keep an eye on xD.

None of these "big stores" provide the game, they're all sold by stores you've never heard of, Big stores like Americanas, shoptime and submarino have the product delivered by up2games, amazon by storegamers and walmart by gameteczone, none of them are big stores.

You can find Zelda (sealed) for Brl 260 with free ship in the Nintendo Official store on Mercadolivre.

But like i said, if you go more deeper you can find for Brl 200-220 sealed.
