**Update 1**

Amazon UK has stopped taking orders for the Nintendo Switch Pro controller. Whether the company has actually sold through their initial stock allocation or not, is currently unknown. That said, I find it hard to believe that its stock was exhausted whilst it was listed at £100.

After months of speculation Nintendo finally pulled the curtain on its new system, Nintendo Switch, but whilst the pricing of its console might be justified, its accessories are receiving ridiculous price tags.

It’s been less than a week since the Switch’s unveiling, however that hasn’t stopped UK retailers such as Amazon and GAME opting for a slightly different pricing strategy.

The Nintendo Switch Pro controller will be a vital piece of equipment for those wishing to play with a standard-style control method, but its high £65 price tag at GAME is a bit too steep for most people. Then again, Amazon UK don’t seem to think it’s high enough…

In an unbelievable move Amazon has decided to place a whopping £100 price tag on the Pro Controller. Raising its recommended retail price by £35. Whether this is due to the results of Theresa May’s Brexit speech today, remains unknown, but I feel sorry for the unlucky punters laying down this much money.

That said, Amazon UK has reduced the price of The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild from £59.99 to £49.99, which is a welcome move. GAME are still charging £59.99.

I guess consumers can’t have all the best prices in one store, that would be silly (obviously).
