It’s only natural that the Switch rumor-mill is ramping up as we close-in on the event this Thursday. Today’s comes from Reddit user radoster95, who wouldn’t really be a reliable source if not for the fact their posting history on the site indicates they likely are a Best Buy employee as they claim (it’s that or they have the most bizarre long-con in the works.)
In the Switch rumor radoster95 states that Best Buy’s records have been updated as part of a price change report to say the system will cost $249.99. This does line-up with previous rumors from the UK, where it was priced the equivalent of £199, and potentially Nikkei’s prediction.
It is by no means confirmation, however, but even if these are predictions on the part of retailers they are still handy when it comes to planning ahead. We’re sure to find out the specifics this Thursday evening, regardless.
