We gave you a heads up at least three or four times that the Nintendo Switch was in stock on Amazon ahead of Black Friday, and plenty of you took advantage. Now, the console is sold out. There’s still some good news if decided to ignore us, or if you just missed those posts. The Switch is not in stock right now on Amazon, but it will be soon. If you want guaranteed delivery in time for Christmas, we recommend ordering one now. New console shipments are due next Friday, December 5, and yours will ship via Amazon Prime if your order it now. Once this new shipment sells out, we have no idea if or when you’ll have another opportunity to order one in time for Christmas.
Here are some notes on the Switch 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.
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.
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.
