According to the placeholder page, the Nintendo Switch will be selling for $329.99 CAD. That's $244.23 USD at the current exchange rate. In comparison, the 500GB PlayStation 4 Slim and Xbox One S models retail for $379.99 CAD.

It should be noted that while the price presented on the placeholder site might be accurate, prices are subjectable to change between now and the time of the Switch's release. After all, a placeholder is simply a placeholder, unless, of course, the price was directly presented to Toys R Us by Nintendo of Canada. As such, it should not be assumed that this will be the final retail price.

What do you think about the tentative price for the Nintendo Switch presented by Toys R Us Canada? Would you be willing to pay $329.99 CAD for the Switch based on what's been revealed thus far?

lol no way does it have specs to run current gen ports if it costs that with an extra screen.

Yeah, that's way lower than I expected. Like, low enough that I worry that it's not going to match even the old Xbox One, as Nem says.

Surprised it's not $199 and based on the Gamecube architecture but it a bit more RAM, a few more pixels and 13 more polygons on screen at any given time.
