Oh no! Nintendo warns of holiday season Switch shortages

Oh no! Nintendo warns of holiday season Switch shortages

So, maybe you should hold off on the SNES Classic bidding wars and see how this works out. Some of this has been out of Nintendo's hands but just how much could be debated as the company is well known for its consoles being hard to get a hold of. "You shouldn't [have to] pay more than $79.99", said Fils-Aimé.

Following that statement, Fils-Aime noted that Nintendo has already "dramatically increased" production of the upcoming retro console.

Despite feeling like "the demand is there and the supply chain is there", Fils-Aime is concerned that the demand is still growing and might be unmanageable in time for the holiday period. Reports of customers using a bot that could rapidly snap up the early pre-orders were also widespread.

The officials spoke on condition of anonymity because they were not authorised to speak to the media. The gunmen later opened fire with machine guns and commandeered a police pickup truck.

However, given that's never been the company's style, and we can expect more shortages throughout the holiday season. And there is a potential that demand is going to outstrip supply.

What sticks out the most is that, "Fils-Aimé said Nintendo said the company was not holding back stock on objective to create an artificial scarcity situation".

Either way, we reckon that if you want a Switch or have promised to get someone the console for Christmas, you ought to start throwing money at Nintendo and authorised retailers.

"Certainly the demand is there and the supply chain is there".

They're playing it coy with the Switch too, as Reggie explained to The Financial Times when prodded about Switch supply, that "There is not one choke point, there are multiple choke points". While third-party Switches are not quite as absurdly priced as they were at the time of the system's launch, it's still not uncommon to find Switch units on eBay and other websites going for $100 or more above retail price.
