€306,39 equates to £259, give or take 12p either side.

Out of stock on Amazon UK. Available to order for both variants on the .fr website.

As far as I am aware, the Switch uses a USB type C power connection which can easily be obtained.

If people are worried about currency fluctuations, buy Amazon France vouchers, plus you also get 5€ for topping up your account with 100€

still more expensive than a PS4 cold from me and why would I give money to the French?

What about customs charges?
And they let people vote in a referendum.

I really don't understand peoples logic when it comes to things being more expensive than others - it is probably one of the most retarded pieces of crap I ever read on the internet these days - i'll be sure to take my 40 inch tv and ps4 on the train with me next time I want to play a game on there >_>

Good luck with that. The Wii U has rarely been reduced during its entire life-cycle so to think they're possibly going to knock £80 off before it's even been released to suit your budget is ridiculous.

Don't, just don't tempt me... I don't need this! I've got a backlog coming out of my bum as it is without a new system!

Buzz - my French isn't good enough to find out for myself. Does this price include UK delivery too?

I would watch out with this it might be cheaper because of the strength of the pound atm but at the release date so close to brexit it is expected for the pound to lose value and this might be more expensive than the normal price in the uk when they ship and charge you for it. me personally I am going to wait until more games are planned to be released

As someone who's preordered and is excited for the Switch, I'd say there's a damn good chance of that happening this year. I'm almost expecting 3ds level of pricedrop for this thing at some point in 2017. Sentiment surrounding it is so negative but they can't afford for this to fail. After the preorder period I don't expect strong sales.

Thinking about covering my bases and ordering a second one of these just in case Amazon UK don't come through on my initial pre-order.

Wondering if my UK Gift Voucher will work; I suspect not but worth a try...

Totally agree with this. I was hoping for £199 solus / £249 bundled. Unfortunately it wasn't to be :(

I'm still holding on my Amazon pre-order for a miracle price drop somewhere, but if nothings happened by the 1st March, I'm not going through with it, yet.

Tried it seconds before you replied. Hadn't actually noticed that the card states Amazon UK on it.

Never mind. Have ordered one anyway - now it's a decision whether or not to cancel my preorder on UK Amazon.

Is the switch powered by USB or will in be a European plug that comes with it?, then an adaptor is need which is about £3-4, I already have a preorder with Argos with £7 discount so £273 minus potential adaptor £4 only saving around £8 as price coming in on XE around £260.70 with postage, so Dnt really k is if it's worth the hassle to be honest that's if it's powered with a plug

It uses a USB C connector. Which is really, really strange for Nintendo.

If you get notification of the French one has been dispatched, u can refuse delivery of the Amazon U.K. One so u Dnt have to prat around sending it back, and getting charged for the pleasure.

Nintendo have openly said that one of the reasons the Wii U retained its value so much is because they sold every unit at a loss once you include tax and delivery costs.

They're trying not to make the same mistake with the Switch, they want flexibility with pricing which is why it is selling so high, so that in future they can bundle games with it or sell it at a lower price and people will appreciate the price drop from £280 to £250 + a game.

If they went £250 off the bat people would still be moaning it's too expensive and if they add a game no one is going to say that's an incredible deal. With the £30 eventual price cut and a game people will.

Long story short: Nintendo have said it's priced high so they can lower it in future.

Will be the usual Nintendo nonsense. They will short supply making it more desirable because there a little harder to get . Then no games will get released for it and then it will sit collecting dust under the TV for 2 to 3 years until they release another console.

Do you people not learn ? . Wii short supply - Then no games . Wii U short supply - Then no games . Even there other stuff they do it to . Remember the Amiibos ? again short supply and most recently the NES console .Yes , Yes the NES is still in short supply,but as soon as they think people are starting to lose interest they will flood the market again .

no, they're sensible. 720p screen means better battery life than a 1080p screen. And the difference in perceived resolution at that screen size is negligible for most people.

The battery life is already terrible though so imagine the battery life if it was a 1080p screen.
