At the time of writing, Amazon has already sold out of its first allocation of units for Nintendo's new Switch console -- on both UK and US sites. 

The console, which was today given its release date of March 3, and UK price of £279.99, is still available to pre-order on the UK site, but the page now states that 'Amazon has sold through our allocation of Nintendo Switch'. Orders will now be fulfilled in the order they're placed and as new stock comes in. When this will be isn't detailed. Lucky it wasn't a Christmas release, eh?

Currently other retailers are still to be accepting pre-orders.

For full details on the Switch, including the games available at launch and what comes in the box, check out our round up here.
