GameStop in other regions still mentions placeholder prices such as 777,77€.

Nintendo has already confirmed that it won’t be sharing any details regarding Switch and its games until January 2017. We just have to wait for Nintendo speak up about its plans for the new gaming machine.

At this price point, Nintendo will see an early rush of sales but the momentum will die out in a month or so. This is something the company can not afford so it has to price its device very carefully.

The good news is that major publishers have promised to bring their games to Switch. The bad news, however, is that Nintendo needs to sell units and create a noteworthy install base for the long run. Otherwise, it would just be a Wii U 2.0.
