In somebody just got fired news; remember yesterday when we reported on the leaked footage of the Nintendo Switch OS? It came from a Reddit user who claimed he received his preorder early. Nintendo released a statement calling bull shit. Nintendo said that Nintendo Switch was actually stolen and “employees responsible” have been fired. Here’s the full statement Nintendo released to our snitch;
“Earlier this week, individuals claimed to prematurely purchase a small number of Nintendo Switch systems from an unspecified retailer. Nintendo has determined these units were stolen in an isolated incident by employees of a U.S. distributor, with one system being illegally resold.
The individuals involved have been identified, terminated from their place of employment and are under investigation by local law enforcement authorities on criminal charges. Nintendo Switch will launch worldwide on March 3, 2017, and we look forward to everyone being able to discover the wonders of the new system for themselves at that time.”
I just hope the fines and possible jail time the culprit is about to catch was worth the extra few bucks they made for this illegal transaction. When will people learn? Here’s that video of The Switches OS in case you missed it.
