'Earth's greatest gamestore', otherwise known as GameSeek, is the first retailer worldwide to be taking pre-orders for the #NintendoSwitch. GAME already set their price for the console at £199.99 earlier this month, but GameSeek in the UK is taking the next step with pre-orders at £198.50 (USD$246.79)!

The #Nintendo console, which, let's be honest, is the console we have all been waiting for, is set to be officially released in March 2017. Nintendo itself hasn't yet announced an official price for the #Switch, which could mean this move from GameSeek shows that they know something we don't.

So, What's With This Nintendo Switch Pre-order Deal?


Not bad!
Not bad!

  • If you order now, the Pre-order Price Guarantee means that you will always be charged the lower price even if the price increases between now and the release date.
  • If the price decreases then you will still be charged the price you originally paid. Then again, £198.50 is not a bad price for a brand new console.
  • On top of that, it also says that the 'release dates are subject to change by the manufacturer'. This means that there is a possibility that you could get the console after the official release date, which wouldn't be so cool.
  • Lastly, this GameSeek offer looks like it is only for the base model and there is a big chance that Nintendo will announce various models of the new console in the coming months, possibly with extra storage or some games!

What does the Nintendo Switch offer players?

"Nintendo Switch allows gamers the freedom to play however they like"

Well, if you haven't already heard, it offers quite a lot. In terms of mobility, it allows players to play titles at home on the big screen as well as handheld and on the move. The Switch can rest in the Switch Dock that connects to the TV, meaning you can play at home with your friends and family. Then, by simply lifting the Switch from the dock, you can play instantly on the handheld device. Pretty neat, right?

That's not all! You can also set up the Switch on a surface and then take the two controllers off of its sides, allowing you and a friend to play multiplayer while on the go.
