While you might have trouble finding the neon red and blue Joy-Con variant of the standard Switch console, we've had no trouble finding the vanilla grey version. If you do happen to find the neon red and blue console, pricing should be the same.

It's also important to remember that US sales tax varies state by state and isn't included in the quoted price, whereas Australia's GST rate is 10% across the board (New Zealand is 15%) and the stated retail price has to include it. For example, once the Californian sales tax rate of 7.25% is added, Californians will pay around US$320 for the Switch, or roughly AUD$425. Similarly, without GST, the Switch would cost roughly AUD$427.23 in Australia. With tax factored into the equation, the prices are much closer, but not identical.

Whether that's a good deal depends on your point of view. Consoles rarely get more expensive after launch, and with inflation factored in, this isn't a massively expensive console. Whether it's worthwhile will depend on your reaction to the hardware specs and launch titles; check out our full hands-on review to learn more.
