imagine 500 years into the future people will be able to emulate stuff like this on their everyday tech!

.....did i just win a switch

.....did i just win a switch

I responded. It only asked for my name address and number, so what's the worst that could happen ¯_(ツ)_/¯. Also it's from an official Nintendo email, not spoofed.

It's legit. They announced this sweepstake during E3 and all you had to do was answer the poll. Congrats mate

Congrats! I also got an email this morning, but I won a Second Prize. Can't complain about $115 worth of Nintendo eShop Cards 😃

Edit: PROOF

Hmmm, could be fake. If you'd like, you could sent it to my address, just to make sure. /s

I won a Switch prize package from Pepsi!

I thought it was impossible to win this kind of contests. Lucky you, have fun!

I was walking through Walmart a few weeks ago when I saw a Switch on a sign. It had me Snapchat an image, which took me to an entry form. I forgot about it until about a week later, when I got an email saying I won a "Switch Prize Pack 3".

Turns out that prize package was a console, pro controller, and MK8! I'm so excited that I had to share.

Their company colors are red and blue and they still couldn't manage to grab a neon unit.

Taco Bell's are the only ones I have ever heard about actually giving out prizes. Never from any other company though. Neat that Pepsi was legit.

Nintendo apologizes for Switch shortages. Says they are shipping new units weekly and will increase shipment volume in July and August

Nintendo apologizes for Switch shortages. Says they are shipping new units weekly and will increa...

Just a short disclaimer because this piece of news is bound to lose its context once it gets reported and repeated elsewhere. It already has in this thread.

The tweet & on-line letter is in Japanese for Japanese audiences.

It's quite possible the increased shipment is worldwide, but assume it's only for that market. Japan is a lot closer to the factories in China so they can ramp up supply a lot faster.

It's not directly their fault. The switch needs a certain type of flash memory card, and the company that makes these (Toshiba i think) has Apple, Nintendo, and a bunch of other tech companies competing for them. A spokesperson for this company even said there was no way they were going to meet all the demand for these cards.

Until Nintendo can secure a better deal for these cards or if demand for both these cards and the switch dies down enough, there's gonna be a shortage of switches.

Edit : It's a NAND flash-memory chip. http://www.marketwatch.com/story/nintendo-battles-apple-for-parts-as-demand-for-switch-console-so...

I don't think Japanese demand will be met this year. They're releasing Splatoon 2 and Monster Hunter XX Back to Back. The demand will be huge

Cause we definitely need another fucking iPhone out year after year. And just so i dont sound like an Apple hater, I think the same thing for any yearly flagship phone.

Arms sells 100.000 copies in its first week in Japan

To anyone wondering if this is good... its excellent.

Nintendo sold almost 1M unit of Switch in Japan and more than 10% of the userbase bought ARMS at launch. This is a fighting game, a genre that's both niche and not really doing well recently in Japan, and this already sold more than Tekken 7 in it's first 3 days. Street Fighter V first week sold 41k and that's Street Fighter, so yeah, ARMS debut is actually way better than anyone could expect.

First 3 days, actually.

It's also on par with how much Splatoon sold on it's launch week in Japan. It refused to step down from the top 10 saleschart and ended up selling way more than 1 million on Japan alone. I think that's Nintendo's plan for ARMS as well.

I hope people buy this in the West, since people love to complain about Nintendo not doing enough new IPs

One thing I saw that I didn't see a lot of people notice is that when mario possesses a enemy they not lonely gain his hat and mustache but his EYES!

Now, comparatively, the Breath of the Wild announcement trailers did do better than this trailer. However:

They weren't gameplay trailers, so the comparasins aren't very apt.

The original Mario Odyssey Announcement trailer beat it, and it's the second highest viewed trailer on Nintendo's channel, only coming second to the Switches announcement.

Overall, this shows that there's a lot of interest in Nintendo games, which is a very good thing. I and many others were skeptical about the Switch after the notorious game droughts that the Wii and the Wii U had. I couldn't be happier that Nintendo proved me wrong.

Thoughts?

"Mario turns into a dinosaur." That's all the marketing you need, really.

Actually this Odyssey trailer is doing better than the BOTW trailers. Hasn't even been a week since it was posted and it is only 1 or 2 million behind them. Will likely become Nintendo's third most viewed YouTube video before the end of the month, behind the Switch reveal and Odyssey's first trailer.

"u throw ur hat on a frog & ur the frog"

My favorite of the social media marketing

Outside of the U.S, and maybe Western Europe, no one really knows or cares about Star Wars. Episode 7 lost out to Fast and the Furious 7 in China and India, two gigantic markets. Mario is recognized the world over though.

I'm specifically talking about brand value though, Mario is far more recognizable than Han Solo. In this example, I was specifically talking about Battlefront, a video game based on the franchise.

The Creative Director for Mario+Rabbids Kingdom Battle received a new shirt from his team

The Creative Director for Mario+Rabbids Kingdom Battle received a new shirt from his team

His passion for this game and how he reacted to the reveal sold me on buying this game in itself.

This is oh so wholesome.

Same here. I was very much not interested in this game when the rumors were floating around, but the game looks surprisingly polished, and his evident passion for what he created gave me the impression that this game is something to look forward to.

I mean. Sitting there, seeing your childhood idol stand there and well, praise you and your team for making a hopefully good game.

I'd cry too

Retweet to show interest in DBFZ on Switch!

Retweet to show interest in DBFZ on Switch!

Usually I don't like to do this sort of thing but in this case where the developers straight up said that the Switch can handle it and they're open to doing a port I'm more than fine voicing my demand. This game looks awesome and I'd love to have it on Switch.

Guys, this game runs on Unreal Engine 4 and the devs have said they can get it running on the Switch. There's a good chance we can get a Switch version if we make our voices heard.

Yeah same, they're open to it so I don't want my pride to get in the way of getting a good game

I don't really dig publishers encouraging port begging in general. Seems like a really cynical way to get free publicity. However, the game looks solid, and if they are trying to gauge interest I'll throw in.
