If you want a chance to pre-order one of 1,000 Nintendo Switch consoles, you'll have to drop by a GameStop store today.

If you want a Nintendo Switch, but didn’t have a chance to pre-order a unit yet, GameStop just threw our way a press release advising that the retailer is hosting a special event as part of its PowerUp Rewards Pro Day.

The event will be held today (Saturday, February 11th), and requires interested customers to drop by their local GameStop store in the United States.

The press release did not provide any further detail about how it’ll all work, but among those that will attend, 1,000 customers will be selected at random, and they will be able to pre-order the console.

If it sounds funny, that’s because it is, but the Nintendo Switch is sold-out basically everywhere in the United States, and the retailer is making the most out of the opportunity. So if you really want one, you might as well try this out.

Nintendo Switch will release worldwide on March 3rd.
