Nintendo Has Started Selling Switch Consles Without Docking Station
It’s only available in Japan, however.
If you are a resident in Japan, Nintendo has made an alteration to their console-selling business model. Gamers interested in picking up a Switch console at a little bit of a cheaper price can grab a Nintendo Switch without the docking station. The package will only come with the console, Joy-Con controllers, and Joy-Con wrist straps. It does not include the dock, Joy-Con grip, AC adapter, or HDMI cable.
This new option is priced at 24,980 yen. That’s in comparison to the primary Switch package, priced at 29,980 yen. The official store page for this new Switch option can be found here. You won’t be able to access it if you’re not from Japan, however.
