Online UK retailer Gameseek has listed the Nintendo Switch for £198, which converts to $245 USD, coinciding with our Switch pricing reports that pinpoint the console at a starter $250 SKU and a "pro" bundle priced at $299. What's more interesting is that Gameseek has a pre-order price guarantee that locks in the listed price even if the system's actual release date price goes up, which strongly indicates that the cost could be accurate (companies don't like losing money, after all).
