A new report from Letsplayvideogames has revealed that UK retailer GAME has set a price for the Nintendo Switch console.
According to the outlet, which has been a reliable source for Nintendo Switch news ever since the console was revealed early last month, Nintendo will sell two different models: a basic version that will sell for £199.99 and a premium version with higher storage capacity and a bundled-in game for £249.99. It’s being speculated that the bundled game will be The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild.
In terms of USD pricing, this would mean that the Nintendo Switch will sell for $249.99 and $299.99, respectively. This would make the Switch much cheaper than the launch prices of both the Xbox One ($499) and PS4 ($399) and put it in line with current pricing for both consoles.
This report is also being supported by a listing from Canadian Toys R Us stores, which has the basic console listed at $329.99 Canadian, which would equate to about $249 USD. Here’s a screenshot of the listing just in case it gets taken down:
