With so many of us stuck at home, the video game industry has benefited as people look for ways to pass the time. As a result, it’s a bit difficult to find a retailer with consoles in stock. Have no fear: We’ve combed through dozens of retailers to not only find ones with the Nintendo Switch, PlayStation 4, and Xbox One in stock but those that are shipping quickly.
Some retailers are prioritizing “essential” items right now, which means you could be waiting much longer than you would otherwise. Here are our picks for the best places to find the most popular consoles.
The Nintendo Switch has proven to be a stay-at-home favorite thanks to its portability — you can use it as a console or a handheld — thus the name. But it’s also tough to find, and right now there are no retailers with consoles in stock at regular retail prices. We are noticing some consoles on eBay, but just a fair warning, they are being marked up quite a bit, unfortunately. We’ll continue to watch retailers for new stock, and add a link as soon as we see it — but if you can’t wait, this is your only option right now.
Nintendo Switch Lite
The story isn’t much rosier as far as stock goes for the Nintendo Switch Lite, either, although it seems that Nintendo might be catching up with demand somewhat as Target recently got new stock in that hasn’t sold out in a matter of minutes. We’d recommend acting quickly here as stock doesn’t last long. Here’s where you can pick up the NS Lite today.
- Nintendo Switch Lite (Gray) at Best Buy — $200
- Nintendo Switch Lite (Turquoise) at Best Buy — $200
- Nintendo Switch Lite (Yellow) at Best Buy — $200

PlayStation 4 Pro
Given that it’s a bit more expensive than your standard PS4, the Pro version is typically in better stock at the major retailers. Here are some places you can pick up a PS4 Pro today.

- PS4 Pro (1TB) at Target — $400
- PS4 Pro at Kohl’s — $400
Xbox One S
The Xbox One S, the cheaper of the two current Xbox consoles, seems to be in much better stock at many retailers than some of the other consoles on our list, but we wouldn’t recommend sitting around as gamers might opt for an Xbox should the other consoles remain as in short supply.
