Australia Will Get The Switch For $469.95 AUD & The UK Will Get It For £279.99 On The Nintendo Official UK Store

Gamers in Australia and the UK have been having a hard time with the pricing for the Nintendo Switch, which releases in both regions on March 3rd. However, we do have a general price for both regions to share with you, thanks to clarification from Nintendo. The Nintendo Switch will cost $469.95 AUD in Australia. In the UK, it is more complicated than that. However, Nintendo UK confirmed on Twitter that you can buy the console for £279.99 on the Nintendo Official UK Store.

  1. I lived in Australia, they get absolutely bent over the costs of consoles and games. I really feel for those guys.
    Secondly, Nintendo has absolutely no presence in that territory. It will not sell

    1. Are you fucked in the head I live in Australia and yes it does have a presence? You may have lived here for X years but try being born and raised here?

    1. I’m not sure if I trust the lack of region-lock enough to buy a Switch from another country. The way they worded it by saying it “generally” won’t feature region-lock bothers me. I don’t want to end up getting screwed with something substantial down the line because I decided to buy a cheaper console from America.

  2. £279.99,’s in pair with the PS4 and Xbox 1s. If they got the games as those 2 and get Nintendo exclusive It might work. Personally they should have put it @ £249.99, but I think that will be the price in 6 months time anyway. The problem is that if Nintendo did put it @ a lower price (I.e.£198) people would think it a shitty console.

    1. Forget Tax $300 + 19% Tax = $357. $357 = 335€. Das die Preise in den USA ohne Steuern sind hat wohl noch immer nicht jeder kapiert.

      1. Yeah I forgot it.
        Converted from $ to € it’s around 280€+19% tax it will be around 330€.
        If it’s worth for now is another question.

    I’m honestly terrified of seeing Brazil’s price! @.@ Do we have word on that country’s price yet?

      I don’t live there personally but we have a regular here that DOES live there. @.@

  4. I was excited when Kimishima said the ‘North American price’ would be $299, but then as soon as preorders opened on Canadian sites it was all $399.

    like fucking

  5. 470 for the console, 90 for a pro controller, maybe 100 for a decent sd card, 90 for Zelda and paid OK one sub…..

    So that is roughly $750 upfront for most.

    Ridiculous…..Just so stupid.

    I’m as big a Nintendo fan as anyone, which is why I’m quite sad that I’m sure this will flip harder than the Wii U. And I will probably never get to play Odyssey as I can’t justify that price for a Switch. Regardless if I can afford it.
