I think it's crazy that people have gotten their hands on the Switch this early. Obviously there are retailers who break the street date but I feel like whoever managed to get one had to place some high stakes on it. It's also kind of a little bit illegal. :p

You're not wrong. xD But I definitely don't think people should have the Switch outside of the press at this point.

The way I feel is that some one gets one early, they get one. BUT from how it seems you were right to begin with.

That the leaked Switch was stolen, according to Nintendo.

Switch and Play with Nintendo Switch in Unexpected Places Across the U.S.

WWE Superstar John Cena Greets Visitors at the First Stop in the California Desert

REDMOND, Wash., Feb. 21, 2017 – Imagine driving in the middle of the desert and seeing a couch, TV and video game system in the middle of nowhere, or skiing down the side of a mountain and seeing another one of these surprising setups sitting there in the snow, ready for a round of gaming. It’s a striking visual, sure, but it drives home the message of Nintendo Switch, Nintendo’s revolutionary new video game system that launches on March 3. Nintendo Switch is a home gaming system with the portability of a handheld. The system lets you take home video game experiences anywhere you go, offering you the freedom to play where, when and how you like.

To showcase this unprecedented new style of console gaming on the go, Nintendo is showcasing the versatility of Nintendo Switch across the country with highly visual, interactive living room-inspired spaces in places you would never expect, bringing surprises to every stop. The first Nintendo Switch experience will pop up in the desert at Blue Cloud Movie Ranch on Feb. 23. Invited guests will get the chance to enter the interactive space and experience different Nintendo Switch games, as well as delight in the novelty of playing these games in a completely unexpected locale.

To make the first stop even more exciting, John Cena will be the special guest at this location. As a WWE Superstar and actor who is as versatile as the Nintendo Switch console itself, the performer (and Nintendo fan) Cena is the perfect person to kick off this unique tour. Known for his charisma and family-friendly appeal, John Cena will showcase the face-to-face off-TV functionality of 1-2-Switch, a Nintendo Switch launch game that features hilarious activities like milking a cow and participating in a Wild West duel. Cena will play the game with invited fans and YouTube influencers, highlighting how fun it is to play 1-2-Switch using the innovative new Joy-Con controllers.

The second Nintendo Switch experience will pop up in Aspen, Colorado, on Feb. 27 at the popular Snowmass ski resort. Again, the unexpected location highlights that Nintendo Switch games can be played anywhere – even somewhere as remote as the side of a snowy mountain!

The final stop on the Nintendo Switch journey will be in Madison Square Park in New York on launch day, March 3. Surrounded by excited fans and curious onlookers, the event will kick off a new era in Nintendo gaming. Two famous (and super) brothers named Mario and Luigi will also attend the final event to celebrate launch day.

“The upcoming launch of the unique Nintendo Switch console calls for a unique series of celebrations,” said Doug Bowser, Nintendo of America’s Senior Vice President of Sales and Marketing. “These unexpected locations perfectly highlight the features of the new system, as well as provide one-of-a-kind surprise-and-delight moments that Nintendo does best.”

Each of these Nintendo Switch experiences will be an absolute spectacle, featuring visuals that remind people of home gaming, but set in wildly unexpected places. Seeing these familiar settings set against dazzling backdrops like the open desert, snowy mountains and bustling city will drive home how Nintendo Switch transforms any space into a place to play.

The specific times and locations for each event are as follows:

· The Desert – Invite only
Feb. 23, 8:30 a.m.-4 p.m. PT
Blue Cloud Movie Ranch
20019 Blue Cloud Rd.
Santa Clarita, CA 91390

· Aspen – Open to the public
Feb. 27, 8:30 a.m.-4:30 p.m. MT
Snowmass Village
45 Village Square
Snowmass Village, CO 81615

· New York – Open to the public
March 3, 9 a.m.-5 p.m. ET
Flatiron Plaza
Broadway between 23rd and 24th St.
New York, NY

Nintendo Switch launches worldwide

Now this is certainly unexpected.

Why the hell does it have to be all the way out in Aspen and not Denver? lol
 That is truly an unexpected location, but c'mon now. They've had plenty of handhelds you could play anywhere in the past.

Getting John Cena in there is huge due to how big of a name he is. It's also cool how there doing an event in the desert and you have to wander how sales could be doing if Nintendo did not lowball the stock.

You can transfer your Wii U and 3DS eShop money to Switch through the use of your Nintendo Account. Just link your NNID to your Nintendo Account and you can use it on Switch.

Nintendo Switch has a 300 friend limit and you can access every eShop by making a different account.



This sure does beat buying other system from Japan to play those games that have no chance of getting an english release. It does suck how friend codes are back though even if it's not a big deal for me.

That's nice. That means no importing Switches now? It is disappointing to hear that friend codes have returned. It's not a deal breaker for me.

^ No you totally still can, it would just have less purpose if you're planning to buy digital games.

Nintendo Switch is available now! Crazy how quickly it seems to have released despite seeming like we waited for so long for this thing. I'm not getting one until Splatoon 2 releases but it's nice to know it's out.

I only got in line 5 minutes before opening and I was glad to see that only one lady was there for the Switch. My Best Buy only had 10 gray Switch units for sale if you did not pre-order and they where likely gone soon after. Gamestop did not have to sell if you did not pre-order and even all 88 units at my local Walmart where bought.

Nintendo Switch had the best opening weekend of any Nintendo console in North America.

The following info comes from Reggie Fils-Aime, who talked to NY Times reporter, Nick Wingfield...
- Switch beat out first two-day sales in the Americas for any system in Nintendo’s history
- Wii sold over 600,000 units in the first eight days in the Americas
- specific figures for Switch sales were not given
- Switch version of The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild was the best-selling launch title of any Nintendo console
- specific figures for Breath of the Wild sales were not given

Source

This is not hard to believe with how much they have been pushing those ads unlike the Wii U. With that said sales will likely be slow until Splatoon 2 comes out.
