The Nintendo Switch Lite is still in stock but, unfortunately for gamers, it is selling out really, really fast. The prospect of being trapped in the home during lockdown has led to anyone thinking of pulling the trigger on a console to do so all at once, and that has left store shelves bare and warehouses empty of the hot handheld.
Look around right now and, while many stores still advertise Nintendo Switch and Nintendo Switch Lite consoles, when you actually go to ring one up you are faced with the dreaded "Out of Stock" warning, or at best a note that stock is not expected to return for months.
And, what's worse, scalpers looking to make a quick buck have bought many of these systems and are now charging ludicrous, wallet-gouging mark-ups on them at online auction houses.
If you're fast, though, a cache of regularly priced Nintendo Switch Lite consoles that has been flying under the radar for the past few days still has some units available, even though these are also now going. There are still consoles available, though, and in a variety of colourways.
The stockist may surprise many, too, as you would expect it to be the first place to see a run on by eager gamers, but in fact it one of the very last places where a Nintendo Switch Lite can be found. The retailer is the official Nintendo Store, and it has normal price yellow, grey and turquoise Switch Lite consoles up for grabs.
