Switch ads spotted at GameStop

Posted on December 30, 2016 by (@NE_Brian) in News, Switch

Earlier today, we heard that Switch ads were starting to appear in Australian stores. Over in the United States, it looks like GameStop is gearing up for the console as well.

One GameStop location is showing Switch posters both inside and by the store’s entrance. One ad can be seen right by the Wii U section.

We’ll likely continue to see that more GameStops will be adding Switch promotions over the next few days.

    • It’s probably better to go to GameStop Jan. 12th or the hour before they announce the price.

      I don’t think they will have pre-order until then

  • This time these retailers aren’t confuse and dumb like they did for Wii U by Putting the Wii and the Wii U Gamepad.

        Lmao !!!

    The ads are coming up…like Sam Jackson would say: “Hold onto your butts!”

    Quite early, but I can see why. There’s a lot riding on this console, and at the very least, Nintendo does not wish the marketing mistake to repeat itself.

    I wonder how many viewers they’ll have on the 12th….

    • Jon Turner

      There may be a lot riding on the console, but remember that there IS a good chance that Nintendo can still mess it all up and drop the ball. That’s what they’ve been unfortunately known for over the past four years. I hope I’m wrong, but it’s best to be skeptical too.

      • ForeVision

        Oh don’t worry, their “failure” stands in my living room, and serves as a damned good reminder of how it can go wrong.

  • hi v3.0

    This is a good thing, now more people are aware of Nintendo’s new console, not an extra tablet controller for the Wii

    • Blanco8x8

      What, you mean the name? Because I don’t see a

      • KnightWonder

        One of the biggest problems with the WiiU was because Nintendo never explained it to the mass public, unlike what they’re doing with the Switch, many thought it was just an add-on for the Wii.

      • hi v3.0

        It clearly says “Nintendo Switch, March 2017” so it’s obviously a new hardware. “Wii U” is so similar to the name “Wii” and it shows a touchscreen controller, so people don’t give a crap

      • awng781

        There is a huge marketing difference between the Switch and the Wii U…starting from the fact that the device is called the “Nintendo Switch” and not the “Wii Switch.”

        • Jon Turner

          Also note that for all the good will that Switch may be receiving, there’s also a very good chance that it could turn out very, very bad. It wasn’t just the marketing that Nintendo messed up with WiiU; it was the way they presented the system and in the game selection. Nintendo had better nail those latter two well, otherwise Switch will be anohter major failure. I don’t wanna see that happen, but it’s hard to be hopeful based on all they’ve done over the years. I hope I’m wrong, but it’s hard to see.

          • awng781

            Obviously the Switch needs a lot of major games above all else. Good marketing should prevent the Switch from becoming another Wii U, but marketing can only take the Switch so far.
