Japan: Huge Queues Are Growing For People Who Want To Buy Nintendo Switch

The Nintendo Switch is proving a popular console in Japan with huge lines forming whenever there is stock available.  Lines formed this morning at the Yodobashi Camera in Tokyo’s Akihabara with consumers eager to get their hands on the product. The queues at this place alone were reportedly over three thousand people long and the store only had around 250 consoles to sell. Nintendo is desperately trying to ramp up production of the Nintendo Switch but seems to be fighting the likes of Apple to get components for the machine.

  1. People on the other side of the world or queuing for a Switch, while mine is collecting dust.
    Way to much time between decent titles.
    Can’t wait for Splatoon 2 this friday!

    It’s funny to me. In Nintendo’s attempt to not compete with Sony & Microsoft, they end up competing with Apple instead for parts. Oh the fucking irony in all of this is just hilarious. XD

    Anyway, this is no surprise to me. Of course the Switch would do well in Japan as they are addicted to their portables. That & unlike the rest of the world, they can just travel to their family & friends in Japan in a matter of minutes if not 2 or 3 hours. I wish America had a super fast underground train system that shoots to one side of the country to the other side in a matter of hours instead of days.
