The Nintendo Switch is one of the most anticipated consoles to surface, given that there is a huge excitement potential behind it. However, demand versus availability has become a dilemma.

With competition such as the PlayStation VR and Xbox's Project Scorpio, the Nintendo Switch is one that stands out as a hybrid between a console and a handheld device. This, however, may signify a possible shortage in stocks -- which has now been confirmed.

According to recent posts by GoNintendo, the particular device will have a very limited supply as soon as it launches. Specifically, fans can look at 20 to 30 units via the GameStop stores. This actually made sense due to the announcement that Nintendo only intended to produce over two million Nintendo Switch systems entirely, as per Gaming Bolt. Pre-orders are also recommended if fans wish to get their hands on the hybrid device.

Other reports about the Nintendo Switch declared how many people are positive in the console's abilities to deliver quality gaming experience soon. This includes Nvidia CEO Jen-Hsun Huang who talked about it at CES 2017.

"Nintendo Switch is a game console. It's very Nintendo. That entire experience is going to be very Nintendo. The beauty of that company, the craft of that company, the philosophy of that company - they're myopically, singularly focused on making sure that the gaming experience is amazing, surprising, and safe for young people, for children," Huang said to Venture Beat.

The Nintendo Switch, according to the official site, will be presented live in Tokyo, Japan by January 12 at 8PM PT/11PM ET. The device promises the benefits of a home entertainment console, while it can be detached and converted to a handheld device that players can bring wherever they please.
