You can expect to be able to pre-order the system as of July 15, when Amazon hosts its Prime Day deals. Make sure to act fast, or you might end up missing out. And we all know with Prime Day going on, it's going to be harder than ever to get what you want on the site, and that's if it's actually working correctly. Hopefully this won't dampen our mini console-buying spirits, making it an Amazon exclusive.
