Just came across Shopto, apparently they have Neon in stock, and they sell Zelda for £47. Good luck anyone who wants to buy it now, I bet the stock will be very limited

The next delivery of neon consoles will be 24th March. Please place your pre-order as stock is limited.

when you look at the "buy" button, above that, it says in stock.

Not really sure why everyone is so keen for the Neon personally, I think it looks pretty garish. Managed to grab a Grey console last week in Smyths. Asked if they had any in stock and the guy at the counter said "Yeah, it's only the grey one though". Seemed surprised when I said that was the one I was looking for.

I'm fed up with Shopto since I preordered and prepaid for my zelda themed switch carry case due for delivery on the 3rd March only to have them renege on the deal by putting the delivery date back by weeks with no word of warning. poor customer service in my experience thus far.

All a matter of opinions really. The reason I got the Neon one was because it's different. To me the grey controllers just look generic and boring. Every console I have gotten at launch has always come with a grey or black or white controller. Time for a change and am very glad I did as the neon controllers looks very nice.

I had grey, sent it back and bought the neon. I don't really like having blue one side and red the other. I bought another set of joy-cons so that it could be all blue or all red. It's annoying that Nintendo don't offer that option. It looks like they sell an all blue or all red set separately in other countries, or are about to. Why not in the uk?

They don't offer that option precisely for that reason, they know they'll get folk paying £40 for another Joy Con.

Except that you can't buy a single blue or red joy-con currently. My question was more about why they selling all blue or all red pairs in other countries and not the uk.

Same here, I actually prefer the original colours! but that's just me.

Wasn't having a go. Just voicing an opinion. Didn't vote either way as it's R.R.P.

And not in stock either it should be noted.

It was only in stock for a little while, I tried "expire" this thread, but don't know how.

Nintendo is renowned for its colours and fun games. I have the Mario and Luigi Wiimotes on the Wii U as its Nintendo. Grey is not Nintendo but that's my opinion.

Having the choice is the main thing. Sensible mooted colour for adults + day-glo lurid colours for children = Both markets covered.

I'd like to have seen a classier third option available whereby the colour of the Joycons match the console itself because the grey ones do look a bit cheap and nasty.
