You may recall the Nintendo Switch leak that came from NeoGAF user hiphoprobot a couple of days ago. Well, hiphoprobot has recently provided an update on his situation. The Nintendo Switch console that hiphoprobot leaked in videos and pictures is no longer in his possession. He said “Nintendo has the console back and I am personally not in any trouble. Other than being out a console and the money I paid for it which really sucks with all the bills I have right now but it isn’t going to be the end of the world or anything”. According to hiphoprobot, Nintendo didn’t show up to his house to get the console. It is being shipped to them. He also clarified that it’s not Nintendo he’s in contact with, but a “third-party working on their behalf”. He explained that he doesn’t necessarily think Nintendo is wrong for wanting the console back “after knowing what happened”. Hiphoprobot, again, proceeded to clarify. He says that “for the sake of clarification I will say that I don’t think the person I got it from knew and therefore I certainly didn’t know but somewhere down the chain some switches had “mysteriously disappeared”. So while it was unknown to me, once I found out that it had probably been stolen I did’t feel comfortable keeping it”. Hiphoprobot also says “the people I dealt with have all been very nice and reasonable”. Although he’s not in trouble, hiphoprobot said that he “didn’t feel like pushing my luck by keeping the videos up”. He also says that “I wouldn’t be surprised if they get me a replacement console or something” and he clarified that Nintendo did not ask him to take the videos down.
