You know those videos we saw earlier this week of the upcoming Nintendo Switch? Well, according to Nintendo, the reason the guy was able to get his hands on one early is because they were stolen and sold by store employees. Here's Nintendo's statement:
"Earlier this week, individuals claimed to prematurely purchase a small number of Nintendo Switch systems from an unspecified retailer. Nintendo has determined these units were stolen in an isolated incident by employees of a U.S. distributor, with one system being illegally resold. The individuals involved have been identified, terminated from their place of employment and are under investigation by local law enforcement authorities on criminal charges."
