even tho I love how Nintendo is back with it's red logo, that black and white Switch logo looks beautiful

What about Amazon, or is Nintendo still fighting with them? I do not shop at GameStop.

My guess is that RMC's source is a gamestop employee, so that's all he can confidently speak about.

I just hope the Switch preorders are along the lines of the PS4 & XB1 preorders and don't follow the path of the NES Classic launch disaster.

On one hand, I would like to look at the NES Classic as an exception. Nintendo saw it as a limited novelty item for the nostalgic crowd. Not something that the masses would make into one of the hottest holiday toys available. I would think that Nintendo would treat the Switch as a full on product and do preorders accordingly.

On the other hand...Nintendo has been failing at preorders for a long time now.

If you do get the Switch Price and other release info early, please keep it in a spoiler, including the title.

I'd rather get the information from the presentation than spoiled a couple hours before hand.

Don't forget the WiiU launch. They sold a ton of units and made more revenue than in the Wii launch.
Star wars infinity died in large part because they had tons of inventory sitting in warehouses. $167 million dollars worth!
Nintendo can't afford handling inventory badly like that. They have to be smarter. Smarter means nor making units that you can't sell.
Inventory management is hard. I hate not being Nintendo product as well, but the alternative is death, just ask Disney infinity.
