I've been looking to buy a Nintendo Switch and I can't find one anywhere. Not at Target or Best Buy. Walmart has them but the price is marked up a lot. They should only be $199.

Does anyone know what is going on with them? Is the company still making them?

It's still being made. Manufacturing was shutdown/slowed down due to the pandemic combined with increased demand from people staying home because of the pandemic.

Just FYI the $199 price is for the Switch Lite, which is the handheld-only version.

The Switch I wanted was $299 but it sold out while I was looking for games to go with it. For that and 2 games wasn't cheap but I also wanted new.

I picked up one last week for $299 retail at Best Buy... purchased online.

They've randomly shown available then back to sold out the last couple weeks. Just gotta keep an eye on it.

So far I've avoided purchasing a Nintendo Switch, but news that N64 games are coming to the system along with online multiplayer support might finally convince me to buy one. I also like the Bluetooth N64 controller shown in the video that will be available exclusively to Switch Online subscribers. As a controller collector of sorts - I gotta get me one of those.

Watch the video if you're a Sega Genesis fan because some games from its library are coming to the Switch as well.

I have a Switch. They're not very stable consoles and they get hot really fast during gameplay. I actually liked my 3DS XL better. The only thing it's got going for it is the game graphics. If you're in any competitive play with people on other platforms you'll get your get your ***** kicked.

Literally every single game that allows CrossPlay also allows you to turn it off. And they are 'stable'. What do you even mean by that?
