Nintendo Is Giving New Switch Owners a Free Upgrade to Version 2
 

 
visit this link https://gizmodo.com/ninte .. ree-1837315161

We’ve reached out to Nintendo for official confirmation by email and its phone line appears to be getting overwhelmed by inquiries at the moment.

The unofficial offer was discovered by a Reddit user who reached out to Nintendo in hopes of swapping the Switch they bought on launch day with the recently updated version (not the smaller Switch Lite) that includes better battery life, an improved processor (according to the Nintendo rep this Redditor spoke to) and even minor screen improvements, as some have discovered. The Nintendo rep told them that unfortunately only Switch owners who purchased the console after July 17 this year and that while Nintendo will pay to ship the replacement, customers need to cover the costs of shipping the old units back. One YouTuber even uploaded a recording of their call with a Nintendo rep who is heard confirming the ability to upgrade the freshly purchased Switch.

Other Reddit users have shared stories of similar success when reaching out to Nintendo support, in both the US and Canada, although many have been told that they must include proof of purchase and that older units will simply be returned if the criteria aren’t properly met. Nintendo also told customers that any save game data will be permanently lost for those doing the exchange. That’s an unfortunate downside given some eligible gamers have been potentially enjoying their Switches for almost a month from the specified cutoff date, but a free upgrade is still hard to argue with, and getting to replay The Legend of Zelda Breath of the Wild from the beginning isn’t necessarily a bad thing.


Dis is good sh*t for the people i saw on here copped before v2 came out. NIntendo lookin out for us. All u gotta do is send it in your old with the receipt and they'll swap out.

Until sept 12 gamestop will give you $225 for your launch switch meaning you only pay $75 for the new model.

Not that big a deal to me personally, already on my 3rd one since they keep having issues. One got a crack from thermal expansion, other one had a bad joycon rail.

That's the reason I'm keeping mines. I haven't turned on wifi in like 6/7 months. Is a stable hack out yet?

Not sure but you can make thousands photoshopping receipts saying you brought items people are doing settlement cases with There's no way for the company to call whatever store you photoshop you brought it from and find out you didn't buy it there and being that you have "proof" they gotta pay you. They have tons of them. I'm trying to get a printer and get this sh*t going
Hell most of them don't even need proof of purchase so no photoshopping or returning sh*t(although you can only get like $5-20 from them)

With the Switch sh*t I'm not sure how I'd do it but I know it can be done

When sh*t gets hot it expands. Apparently, the Switch case can crack sometimes due to the expansion from when it heats up while playing. Mine popped up with a crack near where the cartridges go in out of nowhere. I let them know and they replaced it with no issue, seems like its a common issue they are aware of.

Watched YouTube videos on it.... difference seems to be minimal. It's my backup system to my ps4 pro, and my 4 year old son uses it more than me.... I'm good

I've never had issues with the battery, but then again, I mostly play docked. Not a handheld person.
