While the Xbox One and backward-compatible games will be available at launch, PC gamers will have to wait a bit for Windows 10 services.This service is similar to Sony’s PlayStation Now, a game streaming service launched back in 2014 but has one key difference. Xbox Game Pass will allow you to download the games, meaning “continuous, full-fidelity gameplay without having to worry about streaming, bandwidth, or connectivity issues.”No release date was given only that it will be “broadly available later this spring,” and will launch with titles such as Halo 5: Guardians and NBA 2K16, with new titles coming in each month.

The NeoGAF user known as hiphoptherobot was one such customer who showed the operating system, claiming that it was luck that got him his pre-ordered Nintendo Switch weeks in advance. Well, according to Nintendo, that was not the case.Nintendo stated that some of the consoles were lost and stolen by a distributor in the United States. Hiphoptherobot’s Switch was retrieved from the US distributor, which he shipped back upon Nintendo’s request, due to the fact that the console was stolen property. He said in a private online interview with Kotaku, that “I understand why they want it back and it sounds like that Switch might have been obtained in not the legalist [sic]of ways before I received it so them wanting it back is within their rights.” The NeoGAF user claimed that he did not realize that the Switch console that he purchased was previously stolen.In Nintendo’s statement to IGN, they said that they would like for “everyone being able to discover the wonders of the new system for themselves at that time.” With all of the hype surrounding the console, people have been excited to discover what all the system has to offer and how powerful it truly is. But, from the sound of that statement, they will have to wait as Nintendo wants to keep every secret that they can about this console until its release on March 3.
