    I can see how you would say that. I did participate in an early testing of the Wii U before it launched. Hope I get invited for this too.

    Look at the picture. It explains it all.

    You have to be really stupid if you believe that Nintendo would send out such shitty graphics.
    Not even to mention the writingskills of this superbrain

    Beside that, since when does "Nintendo" use .pdf documents?

    We dont even know what GPU exactly is going to be used for the Switch, just know that its a tegra X1 which is enough for what it needs to do.

    I dont understand your complaint about pdf or whatever either.

    I'm saying that you have to be full of shit in order to believe that this letter is indeed from nintendo and not from a 14 year old boy with photoshop-skills like lindsay lohan

    Gotcha, so you are saying I made up this event for no reason other than to seek attention. Sorry for the confusion.

    I guess I'm just a liar then until other people here can confirm getting emails from EventBrite.

    His English was a bit off and I thought he was calling me a 14 yr old Lindsay Lohan, have no idea why he was bringing up pdf documents or Wii U graphics into this either but whatever.

    I dunno how legit this supposed email is. But I wouldn't be surprised at all if Nintendo did actually do something just like this for MyNintendo members, this is very in line with the kinds of things they've been doing over the past few years. Seems like Nintendo likes to hold public events like this in the states at Best Buys, so if such a thing did happen, I bet the events would be held at Best Buy locations.

    No, if you re-read it you would see that it clearly states that it looks like it was created by a 14 year old with the photoshop skills of lindsey lohan, not that you were the owner of said skills.

    Also it is very unlikely Nintendo would publicise this via pdf attachment,

    May I ask what was the domain name this email was sent from

    I was invited to something like this years ago for the Wii U. I live in Florida so I had to drive out to some location in Miami, it was some sort of art studio or something they rented out with a Wii U stationed for every game that was going to launch or within launch Window. I remember getting to play Nintendo Land and Pikmin 3 at the time.

    I'm hoping I get invited to this too but I wont cry over it if I dont.

    I have no idea about the domain since I personally wasnt emailed about the event. If I do I'll announce it here.

    I'm just hoping that they are just rolling out the emails now and its not just if you got it today or not.

    Somwhere you can never find.
    Its not that we don't want to believe you, is just that there were scams or hoaxes like this before in this cite that ended up being fake or leaking out ip addresses and we have not heard anyone else verifying this.

    Earth, bro-dude.
    What have playing video games taught you? It's obviously a trap set by Nintendo to beat you up in a meat locker and break all your haxxed devices. No Mario will rescue you.

    If you look anywhere on google news and put in mynintendo, there is a lot of articles saying the same thing. (not saying its not a Hoax)
