I thought it happened at midnight last night? Why was the whole thread freaking out about staying up late. it was for US and not UK

Because Switch preorders opened in the middle of the night and people were hoping for that to happen last night

Told myself I wasn't going to try to snag a preorder...but here I am, refreshing amazon.com

Nintendo has me in their grips for life.

Sweet. Do you live in Portland, OR? I kinda have a vague memory that you may? If I'm unable to get one, I'd really appreciate you selling me one at cost. I live in PDX, so I could just give you cash IRL.

In the UK, if you haven't then I would strongly recommend signing up to Nintendo's e-mail alerts for this. That's how I spotted the pre-order going up earlier on the UK store and managed to get one.

If you are desperate I am hearing GAME are taking in-store pre-orders with a £50 deposit.

Thanks for making this thread. Perhaps we can get the links updated with which ones have not gone up yet, which ones are sold out already, etc.

Lol @Amazon Q&A section:

Question: Is Nintendo gonna make more than 10 of these? Secondly, is Amazon gonna put up the preorder at 4am on a Sunday night so that i wake up too late?

Answer: They are only making one and all that are interested will have to participate in a death match to win it. This death match will be held at 4:00 a.m. PST and the only weapon allowed is a controller with an irritatingly short cord.

Nintendo UK haven't put up pre-orders yet. But there are a lot that have been Americans ordering from here, some of them even ordering multiple to sell on.

Incorrect, went up at 15:30 BST and sold out in 20 minutes.

A mate at work kindly let me know he'd received a stock alert from Nintendo UK, so I managed to grab one shortly before the site showed out of stock again. So yeah definitely sign up for those alerts.

I got a pre-order in at Amazon UK but I will cancel once I can pre-order on Amazon.com or .ca, I have nostalgia for the North American SNES.

Hopefully, everyone will spill in here when the other one caps out in ten minutes. God help us if somebody makes a continuation of that thread.

I went to my local Game to ask and they had 17 alocoated to their branch. Paid my £50 deposit and now I'm #13.

I really hope that the ports are full speed and resolution. That's all I want, and I'll be happy.

There's nothing wrong with that thread. You think if everyone spills into this one, it won't continue in that fashion? Of course it will and everyone is having a good time there. All this does is make people have to now follow two threads.

Perhaps worth adding the in-store GAME pre-order info to OP for UK people, that's how I have heard a lot of people getting theirs.

That's exactly what I mean. I hope when that thread fills up, nobody else makes a new one and everyone just consolidates here. I'd rather follow one thread than two.

I pre-ordered one on Amazon.co.uk to my US address. I couldn't follow the mega thread. Any idea if it'll actually go through when September comes?
