On Friday, NeoGAF user ‘hiphoptherobot’ says a store decided to ship him an early Nintendo Switch unit. He subsequently posted three minutes of the startup UI as well as the world’s first unboxing.
Well, it turns out that he didn’t get it from a retailer and it was in-fact a stolen unit. The NeoGAF user is claiming that someone sold it to him and as soon as he was made aware that it was illegally stolen from a distribution centre, that he did return it to Nintendo.
It’s unclear whether he did in-fact know where it came from, but due to the fact that he wouldn’t name the retailer. It does seem suspicious.
