COVID-19 Has Made the Nintendo Switch a Hot Commodity

Stuck at home, social distancing with nothing to do? Thinking about getting a Nintendo Switch to pass the time? Well, you’re going to pay through the nose. Turns out that toilet paper and hand sanitizer are not the only hot items being hoarded during the pandemic.

Retailers like Walmart, Target, and Gamestop are reporting the console as sold out. Meanwhile, 3rd party sellers on Amazon and eBay are taking advantage of the situation by marking up the 3-year-old console up to 50%.

Interestingly, the PS4 and Xbox One seem to be readily available.

There you have it. The Nintendo Switch is the console of choice for global pandemics.
