Stores in Netherlands broken street date. Pirates dump Disc Title Key. Already playing the game early!

It all started out a week ago, with reports of the Zelda for the Wii U in the wild early, but all the early reports were debunked and videos proven fake, but no more with just five more days to go, stores have finally broken the street release date, and sold them.
And it didn't take long after the reports of stores in the Netherlands selling the Wii U version early, before pirates of course dumped the Wii U title key, and find ways to download the 2.2gigs for the day one update early direct from Nintendo's servers before it appears, and now they are sharing and enjoying the game already in the underground of the dark 'net for all those cheap Wii U owners out there!

FRIENDLY REMINDER: Please DO NOT POST LINKS TO THE DAY 1 UPDATE OR THE WII U TITLE KEY. -- Google It Please Instead! :)...

You can't play it on TV.

Nintendo Switch has its first game you can only play while the console is undocked and held like a portable.
We all have known for a while the Switch has 'touch-screen', but all Nintendo's Video Promotions in form of teaser trailers of games and commercials of people happy playing on their Switch, never 'touch' the screen, but its now been discovered that if a developer decides the game should be 'touch-only', it is allowed, they don't have to include support for the Console TV DOCKING Station Mode, or support for detachable side-mounted Joy-Con split controllers.

Sadly, originally Sony wanted to sell 2 Million, but they lowered down their forecasts, but are still pleased with the results!

Although VR as a field isn't lighting the world on fire the way everyone expected, that doesn't mean it's been a colossal failure for everyone involved. Take Sony, which seems pleasantly surprised by the success of its peripheral.
Is Virtual Reality Gaming on the PlayStation an 'failure' or is an 'success', it depends on whom you ask, but Sony is VR happy so far! :)

Just like MacOS, but for now Microsoft allows you to override the Windows Store only setting!

Microsoft is adding a last-minute feature to its Windows 10 Creators Update that is designed to block desktop apps from installing. MSPoweruser reports that the latest Windows Insider preview build of Windows 10 includes options to only allow apps from the Windows Store.
It is being called an amazing new 'security feature' to allow the user to limited their PC to Windows Store only, but there is fear that Microsoft will soon make this the new 'default' blocking outside 'Stores like Steam' and good old-fashion way of installing an SETUP.EXE
