Most North American retailers are expected to open Switch pre-orders on Friday. This includes Nintendo NY, the big N’s store located in New York City.

According to a tweet issued just a few minutes ago, Nintendo NY will accept a “limited quantity” of Switch pre-orders on Friday beginning at 9 AM. A specific number wasn’t mentioned, so you may want to line up early if you’d like to reserve a unit there.

  • Well, tbh, it’s impossible to have unlimited quantities

    • hi v3.0

      No duh, but it’s impossible that it will sell well if it’s the NES mini all over again

  • Suppose it’s better to have a limited number of preorders than just saying “Eh, good luck with whatever we shipped out.” like the NES Classic. They can see what the demand is ahead of time.

  • CynicalAtheist

    This is dumb as all hell.

    1. This is Nintendo’s flagship and only brick and mortar store in a prime tourist spot.

    2. How in the heck do you have a “limited amount of pre-orders” I understand limited amount of in-stock but isn’t that what pre-orders are for? If 10,000 people pre-order then you have guaranteed sales for a definite set amount?

    3. NES classic edition all over again.

    4. It is only January.

    • ImReallyNotAmused

      Nintendo NY will have a launch day event, they don’t want more pre orders than consoles in stock. So, needs to be limited, just like every retail store.

      • Exy

        If nothing else, it’ll make for a real interesting episode of Good Morning America.

        • Anthony Chowanec

          They are only a few blocks apart.

  • MrCafecito

    Can we stop overreacting just because they said limited pre-orders?
    Limited can be 5, or it can be 50. Also they didn’t say they will have limited stock.
    Besides, be glad you *can* preorder, we couldn’t with the NES Classic

  • Uncle Phil Hug

    You can’t sell out of a pre-order
    It’s kind of the point

  • JasonBall

    This is not the kind of thing you restrict supply of, so I’ll wait and see just what this means.

    I just like the idea of going to my local store and pulling it off the shelf and pulling out a few Ben Franklins to buy it with. It feels good. So… I hope it stays in stock long enough on launch day for me to go buy it.

    • Exy

      I just hope my local Best Buys will be cool with me reserving two.

    • Anthony Chowanec

      I like having it paid off before I get it so I don’t even have to give them money. Just walk in get my stuff and walk out.

    • ronin4life

      It most certainly is the kind of thing you limit shipments of. I know I wouldn’t want to produce and ship millions upon millions of 200-300 dollar machines to have no one buy any of them… just like my last console.

      • JasonBall

        I GUESS a shortage is better than a surplus, but, really? Is it down to that?

  • Tlozbj

    Well it kind of makes sense, when you look at Kimishima’s comments, on how the days following the Presentation will be closely followed to see if the initial shipment number has to be rised. A initial “trial” period for preorders, would in a way fit with them probing to see a possible trend and de ide how much to ship.

  • Rodrigo Coelho Costa Junior

    Here we go again.
    “Planned scarcity” like in the wii era?

    • ronin4life

      There is no such thing. Planned scarcity is a stupider theory than the New Coke fiasco BS.

      • Rodrigo Coelho Costa Junior

        can you enlighten me with your knowledge so I can understand why it’s so stupid?

  • Abra

    so what time will tomorrows event start?

      midnight in the country live V_V

  • Kenshin0011

    I’d very much bet pre-orders will be sold out nation wide by the end of Friday and that there’s little chance Nintendo will allocate more until close to or after launch

  • bugman83

    If I can’t get a pre-order on day one and I’ll just wait until the next wave.

  • Tlink7

    What else are they going to have, unlimited POW- erm, quantities? πŸ˜›
