Latest outage, problems and issue reports in social media:
  • PKBanjo PKBanjo (@PKBanjo) reported

    @matt12r Sony’s exclusives are mostly over the shoulder third person shooters, Microsoft has a lot of series great series that have beloved games.......and they only pump out Halo, Gears, and Forza, and Nintendo charges 60 bucks for GameBoy remakes, they all have problems

  • Bailey47761755 Yeetbeam (@Bailey47761755) reported

    @HappyPower If I login on my Nintendo switch with the same account would I still get the v-bucks and the pickaxe..? (Btw I play PS4 that’s why I’m asking...

  • tacoforce5 wabungus (@tacoforce5) reported

    @ItsGalex_ @FortniteGame @NintendoAmerica you know, stock vs demand, trading, crafting, etc. the game having a currency is good because then multi-platform issues wouldn’t be a thing. getting rid of the current item shop or at least adding a community marketplace would be really cool. i doubt they’ll add it though

  • Cookie__Sophie 🐱Cookie/Sophie🍪 (@Cookie__Sophie) reported

    @pheasantry_ Yeah they should be able to fix it nicely! Plus they give you a cool box with a shiny Nintendo logo on it

  • OfficialPandaa1 Official.Pandaaa (@OfficialPandaa1) reported

    @Minecraft There’s a lag in 1.16.20 and it makes my Nintendo switch crash and sometimes it freezes as well

  • Replicant813 Rep (@Replicant813) reported

    @dark1x @Andrew_D28 They should push them back in all honesty. There is no need to release no consoles by a holiday season which will already be quite the shitshow as it stands. Nintendo showed us a console can relase in March without an issue.

  • sk8er4lyf24 Michael liguori (@sk8er4lyf24) reported

    @RogueCompany Plz fix the nintendo switch error code issue!!!

  • FieryMai —; #𝟬𝟱𝟵 : 🐾 (@FieryMai) reported

    Nintendo needs to fix Splatoon before I ******* lose my mind

  • Neoxon619 Nabil #BlackLivesMatter (@Neoxon619) reported

    @SupTheGamer @TheRavingTimes @NintendoAmerica I have no issues with a Three Houses rep, but I wish it was Claude or Edelgard instead. At least make Female Byleth the default.......as much as I dislike her design (especially compared to Male Byleth).

  • Andredige Andore/アンドレ (@Andredige) reported

    @KamixSenpai Nintendo has been silent since September of last year. Months before the Pandemic, it seems that the pandemic is not the main problem

  • sdwarcop stephen warcop (@sdwarcop) reported

    @HotGirlVideos69 @NintendoAmerica Don't see the problem.

  • PristinePeach Pristine (@PristinePeach) reported

    @MarcosDIY Yeah but I think if you break it then you can't send it into Nintendo anymore for them to fix because you tampered with it

  • QuantumRllm Ham Sandwich (@QuantumRllm) reported

    @Braves2008 @RomeGoLARGE Xbox live was created in 2002. Ps plus was created 2010. Now nintendo has a subscription service now.

  • geno2925 Molly (@geno2925) reported

    @Xiandotexe @CometObservator IIRC, Nintendo Power only started doing that around the last few months of 2008, so it wasn't true at the time this particular issue came out

  • JustinYung1 Justin Yung (@JustinYung1) reported

    @aaronvalue @ballmatthew People talk about Nintendo's culture problem, which I think is a real thing, but the company is over 100 years old and has transitioned in the past. Its not a shareholder friendly company, but its long term DNA suggest more flexibility than people think.

  • JohnyTwoTimes13 Just Some Guy (@JohnyTwoTimes13) reported

    @JayDubcity16 I agree. Nintendo isn't having problems, Sony is moving along as scheduled. Not their faults. Because you want to game on Xbox, the entire gaming community has to suffer. Nah fam, I'm not buying that.

  • thepapasage PapaSage👽⃤ (@thepapasage) reported

    @CaterinaHunts @NINTENthusiast Well I think the ""issue"" was Nintendo would only let him smoke in the Argonaut offices.

  • sk8er4lyf24 Michael liguori (@sk8er4lyf24) reported

    @RogueCoUpdates What time does is come out today? Will it fix the nintendo switch error code issue?

  • jeffsmudde Jeff Smudde (@jeffsmudde) reported

    @belabatko might be some dust or some unwelcome ~substances~ in the SD slot? give a good ol' Nintendo 64 dust-blow to it and see how it helps. Another possibility could be an internal error, something that would require literally taking apart the camera.

  • Mshurtz27 Matthew (@Mshurtz27) reported

    The amount of hardware issues and failures that happen on the Nintendo switch is very disappointing. It’s the worst of any major product I’ve used in the last ten-ish years. Swelling, ****** up joysticks, poor battery performance.

  • BlueAizu_ Donovan H. (@BlueAizu_) reported

    @MemCardShow ROB was important!! ROB came out in a time when people were leery of games because of the crash. Nintendo used ROB to convince retailers to sell the NES. Then they were like, "HAA haa!! Fooled you, it's a game console!!"

  • Morfid_plays Jon Doyle (@Morfid_plays) reported

    @ForceinUnison Sony and Nintendo posted record quarters. PlayStation sold more games than any platform has ever sold in a quarter and has already broken the records. Nintendo has smashed the console sales records and overall software unit per game totals. Xbox has uhhhhh

  • bro_moore Bro. Ken Moore (@bro_moore) reported

    @OfficialSonyPS4 @NintendoAmerica It is SYSTEM software messing up since last update, NOT extended drive space issues.

  • bro_moore Bro. Ken Moore (@bro_moore) reported

    @OfficialSonyPS4 @NintendoAmerica It is NOT says extended device is corrupt, but only having issues in SYSTEM software hence, not at my end.

  • NowhereProphet Nowhere Prophet (@NowhereProphet) reported

    @kurrptsenate You can do this via the Switch system menu. And yes, unfortunately so. This is a terrible issue that slipped by our (and Nintendo's) tester team. Sorry that you had to run into it.

  • SuniliusIII Sun (@SuniliusIII) reported

    Dang I wish nintendo would just fix the problem with drift and release new controllers I'd honestly be happy to buy a new one if it y'know... worked as nintended.

  • bro_moore Bro. Ken Moore (@bro_moore) reported

    @OfficialSonyPS4 @NintendoAmerica The last SONY update is a screw up. Every time Indhut down my PS4 PRO, it says me SYSTEM software encountered errors when I turn it back on. It’s a SONY problem, not a ME problem. Send a new and improved update please.

  • DrFeelGood_DFG DrFeelGood (@DrFeelGood_DFG) reported

    @ShadowFoxArche Hell no. I have not broke bread for the new Switch with the longer battery life yet. Why? Because my launch Switch works fine with no issues. I rarely game more than 3 hours portably. When I do, I have the official Nintendo charging stand in addition to a 12K mA battery pack

  • plush_exe Plush (@plush_exe) reported

    read the dumbest take on gaming "only small companies make great games anymore" Ok and Miyamototo Nintendo is out here dropping hits for what? There's an issue with corperations in gaming right now. EA, Epic-TenCent, Actavision/Blizzard. But the workers are changing it.

  • Kiricina Kiricina (@Kiricina) reported

    @ggishere01 @best_of_tsg2 And that's really more of what the issue is for me, how often it is, not that the fact that it happens in general. I mean, yeah, I wanna know about new stuff too. For example, whenever Nintendo posts anything it's just "direct when" or "announce the Mario collection already"..
