    Is there currently a way to buy a console for a price lower than $300? All I can find is $400-$450 ones.

    All I can find are complete in box ones, some with games, some with just the system. (Just the system means Console, Charger, Dock, Joy-Cons, Wrist Straps, etc.)

    thing is this:
    let say you find one on ebay at $400.
    Ebay charges u 10% of the sale, and paypal charge you 4%, then The shipping cost.
    That would be $400 - 40 - 16 - shipping. (let say its USPS Priority so that would be around 18).
    that would be 326. now if the item its brand new, it cost 300 + 11% taxes, depending where is bought, so that would be $333 with taxes and no games. so.. yeah....

    This is a brand new hard to find piece of electronics that is in demand. Unless you find a crackhead who has stolen one or someone selling one off the back of a lorry don't expect to find one for less than RRP.
