The Nintendo Switch is only 2 weeks away from launch, and is easily one of the most anticipated consoles in Nintendo history. However, there have been an unusual amount of leaks recently concerning it.

“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.

While this may seem like harsh punishment, you need to remember that Nintendo and its items are part of a business, and there are laws against the illegal selling of merchandise before the publishers desired release date. Learn from this please.
