Or so a random Redditor claims.
Previous estimates for Nintendo’s Switch console put the price at $250 or even lower, indicating a somewhat conservative pricing for what’s thought to be a less powerful competitor to the Xbox One and PS4.
However, according to a Reddit user, the US retailer Walmart is holding pre-orders for the Switch at $399. It’s worth noting that though the Redditor claims to work at Walmart, there’s a high probability of the image being fake, especially considering how high the pricing is.
Some speculate that Nintendo could unveil different SKUs for the Switch with different prices. That being said, it’s still hard to imagine one that could cost so much unless it had a ton of accessories, a large HDD and a game bundled with it.
Nintendo will be holding a presentation for Switch on January 13th so we’ll learn more about the platform’s price, launch line-up and hopefully more later this week. How much do you think the Switch could cost? Let us know below.
