Since being announced in early July, gaming fans have been patiently waiting to pre order Nintendo’s latest console, the Nintendo Switch OLED.
The console has a release date of October 8, with pre orders seemingly being pretty steady so far.
However, if previous years are anything to go by, the console routinely sells out around the holidays, and is now one of the most sought after gaming machines in the world for children and adults alike.
The new model retails for £309.99 in the UK, it features a newer processor in the OLED Model, which in turn will give you improved battery life giving you around 4.5 to 9 hours (compared to 2.5 to 6.5 hours on the original).
If you're keen to get your hands on stock you'll have to check websites periodically. Stock levels are regularly subject to change and are on a first come, first serve basis.
We spotted the Nintendo Switch OLED currently open for pre orders at Argos today (August 12).
The price also includes the cost of delivery, meaning you can sit back and wait until release day and it'll be delivered straight to your door.
At the moment, Argos seems to be the only retailer with stock available to pre order, so you'll have to act fast if you want to be in with a chance.
The news was announced on money-saving website HotUkdeals.
One user commented: "Got one of order with amazon but not really sure why as got a V2 switch….think its FOMO kicking in again".
Another said: "I have one on pre-order"
An avid gamer stated to naysayers: "I’m really looking forward to seeing this bigger and better screen. For 30 quid more than the current model this is a bargain (including the double storage, improved audio, Ethernet port)".
If you don't manage to get one in the pre-orders, it's worth signing up to some of the mailing lists of retailers, so they can notify you when stock comes back in.
Some retailers including GAME and The Nintendo Store are currently only taking interest registrations for pre orders.
