    Uh-oh!

    As the title suggests, someone managed to get the upcoming Nintendo console before its March 3rd release. The person behind it, going as NeoGaf user hiphoptherobot, says an “unnamed store” decided to ship him an early Switch unit. He's even uploaded a video of it.

    Check the video to have your first look at the console booting up, set up and UI!

    [UPDATE]

    Following the viral spread of the news of the early shipping of his console, NeoGaf user hiphoptherobot has decided to return his Switch to Nintendo after learning that his unit most likely came from a stolen batch.

    Here's what he had to say when pressed to clear things up:

    He also mentioned that he will be taking the original video down, although you can still find reuploads elsewhere.

    If it's any consolation, March 3rd is less than two weeks away!

    I posted how bad the image looks on discord,

    Now that I think of it you are using gen 1 sprites in gen 3 background.
    just don't

    I hope they don't go online. They might get banned. Then we will get one thread, "Hey I got error code 005-0128 on my Switch, how fix?"

    Well, as DanTheMan827 pointed out in the discussion thread, you can actually see the serial number. Bad mistake by him.

    If only this person gets it decapped before the launch date...

    Speaking of which, if I were ever to come into some money, how would I go about getting a console decapped, and how much should I expect to pay? If I had the money, I would get the Switch decapped ASAP, and I would like to figure how to set up NAND and RAM hardmods to help search for exploits.
