Before Switch was announced, UK retailer GameSeek took pre-orders for a guaranteed price of £198.50. We now know that the final price is sitting at around £279.99. Despite this, GameSeek says it will honor the pre-order price. Some lucky consumers will be saving quite a bit of pocket change.

Update: Bumped to the top. Amazon UK has more details on Switch pre-orders, including a time added to its page:

“Please be advised that Nintendo Switch will be available to pre-order from 07:00 BST Friday, 13 January, 2017. Due to limited stock we are only able to offer one unit per customer per address. We will be fulfilling customer orders in the order in which they were placed.”


Original: Just as expected, Amazon UK will be joining various retailers with Switch pre-orders tomorrow. A notice on the site confirms this. It seems you’ll want to keep track of the Switch listing here.

As for Amazon US, there’s not much to go on, though pre-orders will probably go live on the site tomorrow. A listing for the console is up here, though naturally you can’t reserve it just yet.
