Report points to £199.99 and £249.99 Nintendo Switch launch price

The Nintendo Switch will be priced at 199.99 for the entry-level SKU in the UK, it has been claimed.

Lets Play Video Games claims to have word from two sources that retailer GAME has been told that it should expect to sell the new console for 199.99 when it launches next year.

The report does not refer to this as an RRP as officially Nintendo stands alone in not officially setting them, but as the sale price is dictated by the trade price it’s effectively the same thing.

Furthermore, it claims there will also be a 249.99 SKU that offers more internal storage and a bundled game. Precisely what the internal storage configurations will be is unknown.

Apparently the Switch Pro Controllers will retail for 39.99.

It is speculated that the US prices for the hardware bundles will come in at $249.99 and $299.99.

The Nintendo Switch is due to launch worldwide in March 2017.
