Nintendo Switch Will Launch For $469 in Australia

Nintendo Australia has revealed that the Nintendo Switch will launch in Australia on Friday, March 3rd for $469.95 AUD.

Two stylish versions of the console will be released: a version with a set of grey Joy-Con, and a version with one neon blue and one neon red Joy-Con.

The package will include the main console, Joy-Con (L) and Joy-Con (R) controllers, a Joy-Con grip (to which two Joy-Con are attached and used as one controller), a set of Joy-Con wrist straps, a Nintendo Switch dock (which holds the main console and connects it to a TV), a HDMI cable and an AC adapter.

  1. According to EB Games’ pricing currently, I can buy 5 copies of Just Dance for the same price as the actual console. lmao why is Just Dance 2017 $90 feckin dollars?

  2. Fuck that noise.
    I was thinking of not getting the console on launch anyway before the stream arrived until there was a price drop and/or more games came out for it.

  3. Thought I was in on this, but the poor showing today and now that price…. no thanks. Will play Zelda on the Wii U.

  4. Utter laughable. No thanks!

    400AU was my threshold. PS4 will have the most and best exclusives this year and cheaper.

    Sorry Ninty, I’ll get this in few years after price drop. This motion control gimmick drives these prices up.

    1. $300 USD-> AUD $430+10%GST? = $469 Do note the USD is before tax in the US iirc.
      We are talking about a very weak AUD atm compared to a year and a bit ago.

  5. At first I was happy… then I saw the price…

    Why is it that I can get an Xbox One or a PS4 cheaper and even bundled with games? If Nintendo want to sell the Switch in Australia they better make some deals with retailers!
