    Hello! I've seen a lot of rumors for the price of the switch, but I have some real proof. On altex.ro, I found this:

    [​IMG]

    ( Link: http://altex.ro/gaming-jucarii/nintendo-switch )

    And the price is:
    • 300 EUR
    • ~270 GBP
    • ~329 USD
    • ~439 CAD
    • ~439 AUD

    As you can see here:

    If you got some more proof, post it here ;) .

    Apparently €300 equals $327USD, and $431AUD, so I think the pricing is fair if true. Currently Wii U + Mario Kart 8 seems to go for $428AUD, so this would put it roughly in the same price range as Wii U.

    Maybe it is a place holder price. Did you think about that?
    There are already some other threads by people who thought the same as you.

    I already preordered it, so I think it's accurate.

    31st of March 2017 definitely seems like a placeholder date, too.

    I don't really know, but I didn't seem to find a thread like this, so I decided to make one, so people could share their proofs and thoughts here.

    I think in general the price could be considered credible, but I'd wait for Nintendo.

    For those of us in the UK > 300 Euros = ~£270 pounds, but considering we're always screwed over prices I wouldn't be surprised if it sells for £350-£400(ish)
    (currently Wii U + Mario Kart [black] sells for ~£440)

    How is this confirmed when Nintendo didn't release any info about the price to retailers yet? It's just a placeholder price from a random romanian retailer who is after publicity.

    Then why did you claim this as "proof" and chose a premature click-bait headline?

    I think that the price is pretty accurate, that's why I put that title.

    "$327.00 US"
    LOL no just no
    this would NEVER happen apparently you have no idea how every other console and in fact most electronic items are priced here
    most prices usually end in 99 ,or at least in a 9 ,there is no way this totally random figure is correct
    it would be $299 or $349 or $399
    with $349 being the least likely

    If this is the price, which I'm sure is just a guess, it is ok. $299 would have been more of a sweet spot without selling for a lost.
