Rumor: Nintendo Switch to be $249 in US, Reddit mods verify leaker’s credentials

It has been rumored for a while that the Nintendo Switch will cost $250. Nikkei in Japan believes it will be 25,000 gen which Nintendo often translates directly into dollars and now a verified Best Buy employee on Reddit is saying that the retailer has updated their systems to include a $249.99 price for the Switch.

Since this is essentially both Nintendo’s next-gen console and handheld in one package I see this is a great price. Both Zelda and a new Mario are rumored for launch along with Splatoon possibly being packed in with every system.

While I would still count this as a rumor, the Reddit mods have apparently verified the Best Buy employee’s credentials and believe he is legit. This could still be off but it’s looking more and more like it will be 249.
