As recently as a few short weeks ago, Nintendo Switch consoles were selling for well over $400 on Amazon. Sellers across the country manage to get their hands on them, and they know they can charge a premium since the Switch is in such high demand right now. It’ll still be quite some time before you can find Nintendo’s hot new console on store shelves anywhere, but prices have already started to drop on Amazon since more sellers are getting their hands on consoles so competition is heating up. The Nintendo Switch with Gray Joy-Con and the Nintendo Switch with Neon Blue and Neon Red Joy-Con are both in stock on Amazon right now with Prime shipping, and each model costs under $400. If you want a Switch anytime soon, this is definitely your best bet.

Here are all the key details from the product page:

Introducing Nintendo Switch, the new home video game system from Nintendo. In addition to providing single and multiplayer thrills at home, the Nintendo Switch system can be taken on the go so players can enjoy a full home console experience anytime, anywhere. The mobility of a handheld is now added to the power of a home gaming system, with unprecedented new play styles brought to life by the two new Joy-Con controllers.

PLAY ANYWHERE

Home Gaming System

At home the main unit rests in the Nintendo Switch dock, which connects the system to the TV and lets you play with family and friends in the comfort of your living room.

On-the-Go

Lift Nintendo Switch from the dock and instantly transition to handheld mode for on-the-go gaming. By sharing Joy-Con, players can go head-to-head while away from home. You can also enjoy the same great games in tabletop mode by using the included stand to prop the system up.

New Play Styles

Remove the detachable Joy-Con from either side of Nintendo Switch for more play styles:

One player can use a Joy-Con in each hand
Two players can each take one
Multiple Joy-Con can be employed by numerous people for a variety of gameplay options (additional Joy-Con sold separately)
Slip a set of Joy-Con into a Joy-Con grip accessory, mirroring a more traditional controller. Or, select an optional Nintendo Switch Pro Controller.
Bring together up to 8 Nintendo Switch systems for local face-to-face multiplayer.

Note that if the Switch inventory with Prime shipping sells out, there are still other sellers on Amazon with the Switch in stock without Prime shipping.
