    A new report claims that Apple is to blame for the latest Switch shortage. as It prepare to launch the IPhone 8, the parts needed for the Switch, which include NANd flash memory chips, liquid crystal displays, and more, are all being gobbled up by Apple to use in it's newest launch.

    Manufacturer Toshiba said that the demand for NAND chips was "overwhelmingly greater" their current stock of it, thanks to Demands from Apple and other smartphone manufacturers. he also said that it was likely the situation would stay that way for the rest of the year.

    Nintendo has sold over 10 million units so far, but hoped to achieve double that, but with the current shortage, won't be able too, unless it wins it's battle against Apple for more parts.

    Hahaha, no offense, but this is so stupid. Honestly, they should just manufacture more hardware, that would make this so much easier

    Earth, bro-dude.
    I hope this doesn't turn into an Xbox 360 fiasco where there are multiple drives that may or may not function (damn you BenQ; thank you Liteon.)

    You mean the 7s? Or are they skipping that because of the terrible rep the 7 had at launch due to it lacking a million year old feature people used?

    And sell it to who? you have to admit that Iphone sell more than any Nintendo console, just buy couple more NAND won't get them the deal and even if they can outbid Apple, they couldn't sell all of them. They may have billion dollars but that doesn't mean they can spend billion dollars without thinking, they are capitalist after all.

    Thank you, damn Apple.

    Figured the Apple supporters would show up. Apple can suck it, they haven't been innovative since Jobs died.
