Reminder - Best Buy to have day-one Switch stock for those who didn't preorder

If you're looking to get a Switch without a preorder, Best Buy might be the place to go. The company has once again stated that some of their locations will have day-one stock for those who didn't preorder. The quantities will be limited, but you'll be able to grab these units at any stores doing a midnight launch. You'll have to line up, and employees will hand out tickets for as many extra Switch units they have in stock. There will be a one per customer limit. Locations that don’t do a midnight launch will start selling the Switch at either 9.am or 10 a.m., depending on when the store usually opens.
