You pretty much need one ASAP.

With only two million units available for its launch month, Nintendo's brand new Switch console is already shaping up to be hard to get. Come March 2017, we're guessing people will struggle to be first to their hands on one.

Pre-orders are not open just yet, but there is something you can do right now if you want to throw your hat in the ring for a chance at one. A product listing for the system is already available on Amazon, where you can sign up to be updated when its available. GameStop has one too, and if you want to be safe you should sign up for both. That way, when pre-orders become available, you'll be among the first to know.


Nintendo has not announced a price or a specific release date for the system yet, but considering that it's been confirmed to use the Unreal 4 Engine we're expecting great things.
