    More Nintendo Switch Consoles Coming Soon @ Gameseek

    Gameseek have a note on their website saying more Switch consoles are coming soon and will have the same price £198.50 as their honoured preorders.

    Neon blue and red model only.

    Set up stock alert to find out when they it's available for preorder.

    UPDATE
    Since announcing that GameSeek would be returning the Nintendo Switch to sale at the £198.50 price tag a couple of weeks ago, we have been working hard to find a way to ensure that all of our customers are given a fair chance at securing a console.

    Firstly, we'd like to thank everybody that has shown such great enthusiasm for this offer - we really appreciate the positive response we received on our website and on social media; and we're glad that this great offer has found its way to so many Nintendo fans.

    We encouraged those that are looking to pre-order a Nintendo Switch on our website to set up a stock alert to be notified the moment that the consoles go on sale, and the demand as expected has been incredibly high.

    Yesterday GameSeek posted on social media that the Nintendo Switch would be returning to sale shortly on our website, and traffic from this post alone was so high that it caused issues with our site - resulting in frustration amongst some customers that are worried that problems may arise when the consoles go on sale.

    It is due to this and listening to our customer feedback that we have come up with an alternative solution. We feel we owe it to our customers to not have to worry about being online the moment it goes on sale.

    GameSeek will be emailing customers individually to invite them to secure their Nintendo Switch pre-order. These emails will be sent at random to those that signed up to our stock alert, and we will continue to invite customers until all of our stock is spoken for.

    We believe this is the most reasonable way to ensure that everybody looking to secure a Nintendo Switch at £198.50 on our website is given a fair chance.

    Nintendo has confirmed that our stock will land on Monday/Tuesday. As soon as the stock lands we will be sending the emails out.

    So the only thing you need to do to have a chance of getting the console for £198.50 is to set up a stock alert. If you have already done this, you are set. If you haven't, please proceed to the Switch Neon Red/Blue page here and set up a stock alert as soon as possible;
    gameseek.co.uk/pd/…f6/

    Thank you for your continued interest in our Nintendo Switch pre-order offer, we hope you find this solution satisfactory and fair.


    ORIGINAL ARTICLE
    GameSeek is happy to announce that our customers will have another chance to pre-order the highly anticipated Nintendo Switch console at £198.50 before release day.

    You may remember our big news last month, following the Switch reveal by Nintendo, where we confirmed that we'll be honouring pre-orders from customers that purchased the Nintendo Switch from us at £198.50 - over £80 lower than the £279.99 RRP.

    This time we will be doing the mega offer on the Neon Red / Neon Blue Nintendo Switch consoles. We can also guarantee that the customers who pre-order at £198.50 will have their Switch consoles dispatched before release day!

    So when are the Switch consoles going back on sale at GameSeek for £198.50? Soon.
    If you want to get your Switch console on the release date £80 cheaper than the RRP - click the stock alert via our website (If you aren't already a GameSeek customer, you'll be directed to a page to create an account).
    This is the best way to be alerted as soon as the console is back on sale.

    We hope that those of you still looking to secure a Switch take advantage of this special offer.

    I really hope they do it in the middle of the night, as I'm generally awake then, to avoid any problems trying to load their website when this happens.

    been checking on them for a few days now...still waiting

    I've been randomly checking the site every so often for the last few days. It seems to be their way to drive traffic on the site, they've tweeted a few times today that they're coming "soon". Could still be 2 or 3 days though, that would be enough time to process payment and get the console shipped for launch day.

    FYI; it seems gameseek take payment immediately, not when dispatched

    If it's too good to be true, it always is.

    I'm actually happy paying rrp from Amazon to be honest. At least I know of anything goes wrong Amazon will sort it immediately with no fuss. Don't think I'd trust a company I've never even heard of.

    you can pay with paypal. problem solved.

    Interesting OP, Thanks.

    Simply games held my money for 6 months after cancelling 3 PS3 console pre-orders. Consoles arrived late. Sent back within 7 days, no refund and when I finally got the money they had charged me shipping on each console. NEVER AGAIN!

    Huh? I thought these chaps are talking about Gameseek and Switch preorders?

    I imagine this 'deal' won't go live till next Thursday, in the hope people will have given up and their other pre orders will start to be charged

    Tempted at this price

    I got a stock alert at 3am on Tuesday morning for the Neon Switch being available. Checked at 8am and nothing available. Probably had one in stock. Great way of marketing their website.

    Everyone who signed up for the stock alert will be entered into a lottery for the new stock by the sounds of things Link

    Id set up a stock alert and although on the fence about the switch will 100% bite if I get an alert at that price.

    Ha ha ha, that's hilarious - pretending that they are randomly sending pre-order invite emails so they don't have to sell the switch to anyone for that price but can just say that some people got it for that price without needing any proof.

    So I rang their customer service to see if they could say when they would be going on sale. They said they couldn't but apprantly they have ALOT in stock. They didn't know anything about the lottery method and she said that it would just be when they come in stock people are notified and its first come,first served

    If you read the updated statement from them, it suggests the email lottery starts Monday/Tuesday, which is when they are predicting they get stock. But time will tell

    Anyone lucky?

    How do you know that?

    I'd not bother, the last thing I ordered from them said in stock with 3-5 day delivery took almost three weeks to arrive and that's only after multiple emails. They were banned from HUKD for a while for essentially been drop shippers or just ordering stock on demand.

    That's not what the article you linked says at all.

    "Will our stock arrive tomorrow? Only time will tell."

    Odds are it will, if not then its being cut pretty fine.

    They have removed the page that tells people to request stock alerts
