Due to the ongoing coronavirus outbreak, a Nintendo Switch shortage has finally struck the United States around the launch of Animal Crossing: New Horizons.
To cash in on the shortage, scalpers have started jacking up prices for the console in the US, with some Amazon and eBay third party sellers asking for USD470 – USD550 for a Nintendo Switch (the MSRP is USD299.99). The Nintendo Switch Lite, which is still readily available at some retailers, is going for up to USD300 on various websites (the MSRP is USD199.99).
As China is starting to open up again, the shortages should be dying down in the next 2 months.
