EB Games confirms it won’t price match Big W’s Switch + game bundles


You can't get a Switch and Zelda for $519 from EB Games, head to Big W for that.

EB Games has confirmed on Twitter it won’t match Big W’s Nintendo Switch plus The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild bundle for $519; nor will it match the console + 1-2-Switch bundle for $499.

Despite advertising it will match any better advertised price, that policy does not include console bundles (apparently). Individual stories have matched bundles in the past at their own discretion, but often not at console launches.

At EB Games’ pricing, a Switch console plus Zelda will set you back $560, but you might still be able to price match Zelda for cheaper — as long as the lower price isn’t part of a console bundle. Alternatively, get up bright and early next Friday and try to buy one from Big W, where pre-orders are no longer being accepted, but there should be some walk-in stock.
