...and I can't touch them until 3rd of March at midnight. AMA. ;O;
your challenge if you choose to accept it. is to wank all over them.
then technically you have touched them in a special way with out touching them.
I'm afraid that they're all in the eyeshot of a camera. We might open one though, 'cause y'know, we need a display model, right? Besides, one of'em is mine anyways, I figure I might tamper with it before the time is due. Technically it's not outside of the facility, so... is that breaking street date? I don't know, I'm not a lawyer.
For now I'll just play with your emotions, since I have access to a likely shitty console before any of you suckers. ;O;
Shitty employers, reserving the good stuff before consumers get a chance, get into the fucking line like the others..
Had you asked your boss? Maybe he is cool with it.. Or does Nintendo requires to be sent 24/7 cctv recording of the boxes to control wich stores breaks the rules?
I took a selfie with mine:
Cannot. be. touched.
There's also a stack at my place as well. I fondled the hell of them
build a robot to touch it?
i don't know, be creative, you get extra creative points, you can't be fired cuz you follow the rules
What would you say about general avalibility?
All sold out Day 1, but partially because Nintendo gave us about a thimble's worth of units.
Meanwhile, at a Nintendo board meeting:
"Alright, we need to sell as many units as possible!"
"I have an idea, let's manufacture 100 worldwide, then we're guaranteed to sell all of them!"
They're creating a false shortage of units to increase demand and maximise pre-orders, they've been doing this for years.
Hey, at least Nintendo's making a hundred switch consoles worldwide for launch. Compare that to the five NES classics they made at its launch and the other ten that have come out since then.
Why do you think they sold for as much as they did and people were still happy to grab them? It's obviously done on purpose. If you can't get your hands on a unit, you will pay whatever price you're asked to pay when given the chance.
On a scale of 1-20 , how much does it hurt ?

*inserts big wall of text explaining that companies specially nintendo are known to do this, why they do it and etc*
I was going to appear and say there is a stack of them at my workplace as well, my workplace being a dodgy and run down, but surprisingly well secured, warehouse that may or may not occasionally contain hot goods.
But if you want a discussion on the nature of limited runs and artificial shortages, possibly delving into the psychology of the matter I am sure we can oblige.
i remember you alraedy did it once
i remember reading about it..
did you order\reserved a switch btw?
a) I am broke
b) even if I was not I am not going to buy a console at launch where there are no games, no hacks, no great features and very little potential.
"Sir, we've sold our entire run of Switch units! What should we do, make more?"
