We seriously can’t believe it: Nintendo Switch consoles sold directly by Amazon are back in stock for Black Friday 2020! Not only is the regular version of Nintendo’s beloved console in stock for $399 — you can get it in two different colors: either gray or neon blue and neon red.

Why does it matter that they’re sold directly by Amazon instead of a third-party seller? The answer is upsetting but simple. Since the start of the coronavirus pandemic, Nintendo Switch consoles have been very difficult to find in stock anywhere. Shady third-party sellers on Amazon have been taking advantage of the situation by price-gouging consoles and charging astronomical prices. At one point, these disgusting Amazon sellers were charging as much as $500 or $600 for a simple Nintendo Switch console. It’s despicable, but unfortunately, it also doesn’t come as much of a surprise.

Nintendo Switch consoles sold directly by Amazon are obviously not price-gouged. If Amazon is going to sell Purell hand sanitizer at the lowest prices on the internet in the middle of a pandemic, you can be sure it’s not going to gouge Switch consoles. It’s worth noting that there’s no telling if or when another opportunity like this will arise.

Note that shipping estimates are already slipping for both consoles, so you’d better order one immediately if you don’t want to miss out. Also, remember that Amazon pretty much always delivers orders sooner than expected when delivery times are delayed.

Also of note, you can and should load up on Nintendo Switch games whether or not you already own a console. There are even a bunch of top titles that are discounted right now at Amazon. First, check out all of the Nintendo Switch game digital downloads that are available so you can start playing immediately:
