Nintendo Switch's traffic data proves new consoles are the lifeblood of retail

However, using exploits to jailbreak the Switch, hackers may be able to understand the console's firmware and start looking at how it uses RAM, allow gamers to load homebrew apps, play ROMS that simulate Nintendo classics, and even browse the Internet as one would on a computer. A hacker just shared a possible Nintendo Switch jailbreak which might be helpful to solve a big bug in the browser software used on Nintendo Switch.

Amazon, The Game, Very and Base are also selling the Nintendo Switch. It seems that Nintendo can't meet the demands of their newest console as several retailers have run out of stock. Nintendo, however, did not confirm when the additional stocks will arrive. To put this into perspective, a substantial 89 percent of Switch owners also bought The Legend of Zelda game. Gamestop also now offers players the chance to grab $125 store credit by trading in a Nintendo 3DS or Wii U until March 19.

Everyone's least favourite way of adding friends online is back with the Switch, and just as clunky as ever. It is also suggested that there will be third-party sellers on Amazon which will list it a starting price of £320 ($393).

The news outlet points out that part of Nintendo's strategy is to release a few Nintendo Switch games throughout the year.

Market intelligence outfit Superdata says the Nintendo Switch has already sold 1.5 million units worldwide. The US is still now out of stock as most major retailers have reported.

For now, in the UK, Agros is the only retailer that has stocks of the Nintendo Switch as reported by Express. For more stock updates, it's best to check Now In Stock.

So, how does such an exploit exist within the Nintendo Switch. With the upcoming release of major titles, such as "Mario Kart 8 Deluxe", the publication believes that the company has to make the hybrid device available before the game launches this April, or else their strategy will do them no good.
