Nintendo Switch OLED may not be as exciting as the next-generation Xbox Series X|S and PlayStation 5, but hey, this doesn’t stop the scalpers from hoarding and relisting this new model online.

Soon after bookings went online in the United States earlier today, the scalpers began to list Nintendo’s new model system on websites such as eBay, at a price that was double or even triple the retail price of $350. Some listings can go up to $1,000…

This has become more and more common in recent times. Unfortunately, when the system was launched in the UK, we saw the same situation.Same deal when booking Metroid Fear Going online-the special edition and amiibo two-packs were sold out in record time, and a list of the products appeared online shortly after.

As usual, we strongly advise against buying new systems like Switch OLED from eBay. If the retailer you choose has run out of supplies, it’s best to stick to it and wait for more stock to arrive. For more information, please refer to our Switch OLED US reservation guide.
