Apparently, Germany agrees with Norway: Nintendo's no-refund pre-order policy isn't only harsh, it's also illegal under European law. According to Eurogamer, the German Consumer Protection Authority is taking Nintendo to court over a policy that doesn't allow pre-order cancellations, even if the game hasn't been released yet and even if you still haven't downloaded it. In short, all sales, including pre-purchases, are final -- and, yes, Nintendo of America has the same rule.
In case it wasn't clear already, Nintendo has completely turned things around from the failure that was the Wii U. According to data from the reliable NPD Group, Nintendo sold more 8.7 million Switch consoles in the US from its launch in March 2017 through November of 2018, putting it on a faster pace than the other "current generation" consoles from Microsoft and Sony after the same amount of time following their releases. It's a bit of a convoluted measure, and in pure numbers there are certainly more Xbox One and PS4 consoles (both of which launched in the fall 2013) out in the wild, but there's no doubt that Nintendo is in a better spot than they were before the Switch arrived. Nintendo gave more details on just how good its hardware is selling, noting that in both console unit and dollar sales, 2018 was the best year the company has had since 2011, when the popularity of the original Wii was finally waning.
A new report shines a light on Microsoft’s (NASDAQ:MSFT) game console plans for the next two years, including the code name of its forthcoming high powered console: Xbox Anaconda. The company is determined to reverse the outcome of the current generation of consoles that has seen Sony’s (NYSE:SNE) Playstation 4 outsell the Xbox One by a two-to-one margin. If the company succeeds, there is significant upside for Microsoft stock over the next few years.
Just because Nintendo revived the NES Classic doesn't mean you'll have the luxury of buying a retro console whenever you'd like. In a chat with the Hollywood Reporter, the company's Reggie Fils-Aime warned that the NES Classic and SNES Classic will sell in the Americas through the holidays, but will be "gone" once they sell out. You might also want to tamp down your hopes for a Nintendo 64 Classic.
TOKYO—The holiday season is looking merrier for Nintendo Co. after a difficult summer, thanks to a hot-selling new “Super Smash Bros.” game and early signs that its Switch console is doing better. The “Super Smash Bros. Ultimate” game for the Switch sold 1.2 million packages in the first three days after its Dec. 7 introduction in Japan, where the Kyoto-based company earns 21% of its videogame revenue, research firm Gzbrain said this week. In the U.S., Nintendo’s biggest market, Amazon.com Inc. said it was the best-selling item so far this year among all videogame-related products.
'Super Smash Bros. Ultimate' is the biggest 'Smash' yet, and it's absolutely the best entry in the franchise.

You know what you're getting with a Smash Bros. game. A ton of iconic characters -- mostly from Nintendo, but also from the likes of Konami, Capcom and Square Enix -- battle to knock each other off elaborately-themed stages. Super Smash Bros. Ultimate for the Switch doesn't really change up this formula, but it refines it in several ways.
