As of tomorrow, GameStop stores will begin accepting pre-orders for Switch. Thankfully, it now looks like various locations are putting up notices indicating how many units they have available. The number should give consumers a better idea about the pre-order situation.
GameStop offering up to $75 extra credit with trade-in toward Switch pre-order
Update: To clarify how this works, it’s extra credit. Since the 32GB Wii U is trading in for $120, you could earn another $75 if you’re a Pro member, meaning $195 in total.
Original: GameStop, along with many other retailers, will begin taking Switch pre-orders tomorrow. If you have an old system lying around, you may want to trade it in for credit that can be used to reserve the new console.
Those with a Power Up Rewards Pro membership can save $75 on Switch pre-orders when trading in a Wii U, PlayStation VR, PS4, or Xbox One. If you’re a regular customer, you can earn $50.
Alternatively, GameStop will accept a Wii / 3DS and will provide $30 if you have a Power Up Rewards Pro membership. These two systems provide $20 without a subscription.
GameStop takes down note of being able to play Pokemon at home with Switch

Like many retailers, GameStop has a dedicated page in place for Switch. Fans began to notice yesterday that it contained a message stating that you’ll be able to “play Pokemon at home” with the new console.
Now GameStop has removed that tidbit entirely. Actually, the full paragraph in which it was included has disappeared. Could the store have said something they shouldn’t have? No matter the reason, it’s simply not there anymore.
GameStop website claims players will “play Pokemon at home” on Switch

If the description for the Nintendo Switch on GameStop’s website is to be believed, the console has a Pokemon game in its future.
On their websites page for the Nintendo Switch, GameStop has made a rather bold claim about what future owners will be doing once they get their hands on the console. According to GameSpot, players will be able to play “Skyrim on the go, and Pokemon at home.”
Nintendo Switch games will include new title offerings from Mario, Splatoon, Zelda, the NBA and more! You will even be able to play Skyrim on the go, or Pokemon at home with the Nintendo Switch. The unit will also include a number of handy, interchangeable Nintendo Switch accessories.
This is by no means an official announcement, and it would be wise to wait until Thursday to be sure about this. Considering there hasn’t ever been a mainline Pokemon game on a Nintendo home console, this would be very big news to leak out in an advertising slip up. That being said, it’s certainly an exciting prospect.

Rumor: In-store GameStop Switch pre-orders begin on January 13
Posted on 2 weeks ago by Brian(@NE_Brian) in Rumors, Switch | 14 Comments | 0 Likes
Reddit user beyond_the_willow is relaying some information about in-store pre-orders for Switch at GameStop based on a GSO letter, which is essentially a company-wide email. Locations across the United States will apparently begin accepting reservations on January 13. Additionally, each store will be allocated a certain number of pre-orders.
While this would certainly make sense given how the Nintendo Switch Presentation is being held on January 12, we’ll still consider it a rumor for the time being. We should note that beyond_the_willow previously shared accurate information about Hyrule Edition New 3DS XL and the Animal Crossing New 3DS pre-orders in 2015.
Switch ads spotted at GameStop

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.
