    Hello,
    I just noticed that EBGames Australia allows preorder of the Nintendo NX for the price of 999,00$ AUD
    Also, The Legend Of Zelda : Breath Of The Wild for NX is preorderable too for the price of 119,95$ AUD

    Are you so hyped that you will preorder at that price?

    Here in the Netherlands you could also preorder it.
    Though I haven't seen any pricing here.

    EDIT: $999,- is expensive though... It's about €685,-

    Keep in mind that gaming is pretty pricey in Aus. At least when compared to the US. And I have a feeling that the current price is just a placeholder..... I hope. :|

    This is EoF material.
    Preoder prices are always that high.

    eb does this all the time when they have no clue on the price or release date so they just make a price up. so don't bother pre-ordering.

    Yeah, they're overestimating the cost as a place holder... $120 is about the highest game's standard editions can cost here >_> though it's not usual. Basically these numbers mean nothing.

    It's been on there since last year, this is pretty old news.


    Edit: also when you preorder at EB Games you dont pay the whole price right away, you normally pay a small amount and pay the rest later on, most of the time its when you go to pick it up.
