The lucky Switch buyer who goes by the name Online Game Player has posted an update regarding the purchase, "Small update: 10 hours later no cancelation notice yet. Credit has the shipping charge posted. Order status has changed to "Awaiting Product Availability though which I see as an ominous sign." "
The glitch was first spotted by Cheap Ass Gamer who noticed that the game The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild Guardian Deluxe Console Case was listed for free on the official website of GameStop. He further hovered on to other categories and noticed that it wasn't only for the case, several other products were available at a dirt-cheap rate or almost free.
Nevertheless, for the people wondering about the ones who were able to snatch these deals - will they get their purchases honoured is still a question. GameStop hasn't given a word out on it yet either. In the past times when such scenarios have happened, some retailers did ship out purchases whereas most of them did not. It will be completely in GameStop's decision. We will be needing to wait to end the curiosity.
