The Nintendo Switch OLED has finally arrived but some gamers’ pre-orders have not been fulfilled yet.
The hype for the Nintendo Switch OLED is real.
Many gamers were lucky enough to pre-order a system.
Others have relied solely on online and in-store restocks.
Now that the console is finally making its debut, some gamers have been left waiting for their consoles.
Nintendo Switch OLED Pre-Orders Still Not Fulfilled
The demand for Nintendo’s latest console is still high and stock is still scarce.
This scarcity demonstrated even some retailers are having a hard time fulfilling Nintendo Switch OLED pre-orders.
Gamers have shared their concerns about this on Reddit.
This GameStop customer states the order made with the retailer has no status information.
As well, other gamers jumped in the comments to share similar experiences.
Furthermore, this is not a GameStop isolated case.
Other customers from Best Buy have also voiced their concerns on the upvote platform.
The situation with Best Buy is a bit different than what is occurring at GameStop though.
Specifically, the system on Best Buy is not populating an estimated date of delivery.
Even though it is past launch day, many gamers have still not received even an estimated delivery date from Best Buy.
Furthermore, this is an incident affecting several orders.
Moreover, other users expressed that their Best Buy Nintendo Switch OLED orders have not been fulfilled either.
Additionally, some Reddit users claimed they called Best Buy directly to find out what was causing this.
Also, according to them, Best Buy claims there is just not sufficient stock for all pre-orders.
This is particularly odd, given that Best Buy is actually selling the Nintendo Switch OLED in-store.
Additionally, other Best Buy customers state they were told something else by their local Best Buy.
Some stores apparently claim that units have not yet arrived at their locations.
Additionally, Walmart customers experienced a similar fate.
Needless to say, many will still have to wait a few more days for their new console.
Hopefully, order cancelation is not going to happen in these cases.
We did however see this issue coming somewhat with many customers checking their shipping status, showing Switch OLED delivery dates delayed up to a week.
Let us know below if you’re still waiting for yours.
