    I was on the fence about this. I never jumped on the big console release to make a profit but I wish I did (especially when ps3 / 360 came out).

    I was considering doing this for the Nintendo Switch, however there isn't really a strong release game wise and I am not sure the demand will be there for it (I could be wrong).

    Anyone pre order a few just to sell and do you think you'll make some decent money off of it?

    I pre-ordered two just to make sure I get one ASAP on release day as I still haven't been able to find a Classic NES. They both are stating they arrive by 3/3/17. I ordered from two different retailers and got one with the grey joy-cons and one with the colored joy-cons. Not sure which I prefer yet.

    At this time I'm not considering selling for a profit as I don't really care to do that. I will either keep one for my kids to have in their playroom or return it (or maybe sell on here or to a friend if they can't find one, but not for profit). Though the price of all the accessories might warrant making some profit on one of these. HA

    I've got a preorder down but am always prepared to cancel it last minute if something puts me off it. As for making a profit off it? Nope, not for me. I don't like it when others do it and I'm after that item (like the NES Mini), so why would I act that way myself?

    Reggie has already emphasised that there likely won't be a major shortage of Switch consoles, so I wouldn't expect to earn much on doing this..

    Of course, worst case you can play on it yourself. :p

    Yes people are scalping the Switch on places like ebay. If that's what you are asking.
