Ahead of the Nintendo Switch presentation, a couple of sources have reached out to us revealing pertinent information regarding GameStop's US plans for Nintendo's latest console.

You'll be able to pre-order the Switch (in the US, at least) starting at 10am tomorrow at your local GameStops; it's looking like allocation will be somewhat minimal, so you might want to get in line early tomorrow morning at the latest (however it seems as if some stores have been receiving more allocation than expected). It's also important to note that minimum deposit of $50 will be required to reserve your console.

Amongst other pre-order details, information on trade-in deals was also shared with us - here's the rundown.

$50 extra credit when trading in these systems (extra $25 if you're a Pro Member).

  • PSVR ($200)
  • PS4 ($125)
  • Xbox One ($125)
  • Wii U ($120)

$20 extra credit when trading in these systems (extra $10 if you're a Pro Member).

  • Wii ($35)
  • New 3DS XL ($110)
  • New 3DS ($110)
  • 3DS XL ($100)
  • 3DS ($90)

The extra credit will be very helpful considering the price that the Switch is rumoured to be launching with; $250 has been cited in some reports. Will you be trading in any of your old systems to reserve the Switch?
