Gamestop has officially announced today their first stock of Nintendo Switch consoles have sold out. The Switch was up for Preorder on Friday, January 13th a few hours after the Switch’s presentation. During the Presentation, the Switch’s price of $299.99 (£279.99 in the UK) and March 3rd 2017 release date were announced.

“The fact that this initial allotment has been completely reserved in a matter of a few days demonstrates gamers’ desire for this fun and revolutionary gaming system, Merchandising VP of Gamestop Bob Puzon stated.

Many Switch accessories and games are still available for preorder, however. Sixteen games are still available for preorder including The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild and Mario Kart 8 Deluxe. Extra controllers and carrying cases for the switch are also still up for preorder, and are available to view on Gamestop’s website.
