French tipster account Nintend’ Alerts says that the original Nintendo Switch model is in for a price cut starting next week.
According to them, the console is set to drop from its current price of €329 in Europe down to €270.
That €60 saving works out to a discount of around 20% – given that the console has consistently held its price since launch, that’s a pretty good deal.
The cheapest we’ve seen a brand new Nintendo Switch console drop down to on Amazon is around £265.
It usually sits at £300, and thanks to demand – and the ongoing global chip shortage – it doesn’t have to deviate too much in order sell.
While the leak is Euro-centric, tech hardware prices tend to drop ahead of new product launches, so there’s a good chance we’ll see similar price drops across regions.
In fact, right now you can pick up the Nintendo Switch launch model on Amazon for £279.99.
If you can afford to hold off for a week or two to see if another price cut is on the way, you may end up coming out on top.

No doubt the console will start to get difficult to get hold of once again as we head towards the holiday season.
But with the Nintendo Switch OLED on the horizon, there should be enough options out there for you come away happy.
