    >I walk into gamers store
    >I lurk around until a guy buys some stuff and the worker in the counter isn't busy anymore
    >I go up to the counter and ask: "Hey buenas tardes, are there still Switch(es?) available to pre-order?"
    >The worker responds: "Yeah, we've got the Neon edition still. (in stock [That's how beaners talk])"
    >I internally rejoice because I wanna get Neon
    >I inquire with the worker: "The price for preorder's $1000 and the rest is $7000, right?"
    >Worker replies: "The price of the preorder is $1000, yes; but the console itself is $10000"
    >My heart shatters into a million pieces
    >I acknowledge the fact they fucking upped the price by $2000 in the span of 2 months
    >I reciprocate with: "Um, okay. Thank you very much."
    >Worker says: "Have a good day."

    I want to fucking die.
    Now I either have to sell the stuff I worked hard for to pay for a beaner Switch with over priced goodies or order from PlayAsia to save money for games and accessories. Amazon isn't an option, and McAllen is pretty much out of the question now. (Regios will get this)
    Any thought on this? Pretty sure things are worse in Chile with "Que se respete el precio del Nintendo Switch" being a thing.
    Thanks, Trump and Peña.
    @eechigoo @SonicCloud @Alex4U how are things for you guys?
    I gave up on the Switch some time ago but now I want to get it again.

    Try going to liverpool , they we're doing preorders at 9600 pesos. Or maybe Sams Club , i once saw an article about how there is going to be 8000 pesos.

    And sadly , that 10000 price has been since the start of February.

    I will get it on July , hopefully prices may have got down by then

    i've always heard it was $10000 in mexico i remember people complaining that it was almost $500 usd in mexico the day preorders opened.

    i don't know how tax works in mexico but could you maybe order one from amazon japan?

    Does that translate to more than $300? Why not just import one instead?

    Yeah as other say try using Amazon or a japanese / asian page (do NOT use Play Asia , the things they sell are fucking expensive).

    Or you can also wait til December? Due to Christmas coming usually things get prices lowered in order to get people to buy it and the store and company win more money.

    The last thing is going to some reseller and buy it from there , but knowing these kind of places they will want to put it to +11000 and even if you apply the "and how much is it the least?" it wont change and the reseller might even not do it.

    There's a Liverpool in Mexico? Oh, wow. Then again, Canada has their own London too (which can be confusing when they refer to London and then some don't know if they mean UK London or CA London :P).

    the boat would get to sinaloa,where Ima's switch would be stolen from the cargo ship by the narco. Before you know it,you would have a switch called fierro used by a weed grower's kid. (y'see,Sinaloa is where Mary's green leaves are grown. Since NL and Tamaulipas are border states,thats where all the guns and weed are;the guns come from the us,and Mary goes to you. THIS IS WHY YOU NEED TO GET GUNS BANNED!!! Really,if youre gonna use it for self defense,use a fucking knife.)
