New Nintendo Switch could be pretty cheap!

Nintendo is being pretty tight lipped about its new games console, dubbed the Switch.

We know it has on the go gaming as well as a dock for playing on your TV and it comes with some dinky controllers which can be detached from the main screen. Other than that, it's a bit of a mystery, and Nintendo doesn't plan to confirm anything else until January 2017.

But that can't stop the leaks from happening! Toys R Us in Canada apparently had a price listed on their site of 329 Canadian Dollars. At today's rate, that's under €240, though prices in Europe are generally higher.

For a console launch it's a pretty tasty price, and you should be able to get one with a game packed in for only a little more. Nintendo's new console caters to a different market to the likes of the PS4 Pro and Xbox One S so that lower cost will be a definite advantage.

Of course, Nintendo isn't admitting to anything yet, but hopefully the rumour turns out to be true. The reveal is coming to happen early in the morning of the 12th of January, 2017.
