America Switch sales are slowing down, but it could be partly because of 'lack of stock', but over in Japan it is the #1 seller!

The console is still selling quite well despite inventory issues, however. In fact, locally, it outsold every other one of the top 10 best-selling consoles last week — combined.
It seems the Japanese are fast becoming Switch lovers, dropping their love for other consoles even the 3DS as they 'Switch' over! :)

@smealum @ylws8 - Releasing UDSploit, an Exploit giving ARM11 Kernel Code Exec on v11.3 3DS Firmware

Nintendo Scene Developers SMEALUM and YELLOW8 are back with splash releasing an older 'exploit' now that big N killed it!
@modrobert writes: "smea has released udsploit which is an exploit giving arm11 kernel code exec on 3DS with firmware 11.3 based on a bug found by yellows8 back in 2016. This exploit was released after Nintendo pushed out firmware 11.4 which effectively patches udsploit. I guess it's better that way compared to no release at all."

As Investors Predict Big Things

As reported by Bloomberg, Nintendo’s stock has received a significant bump since the Switch launch, with shares gaining nearly 20 percent.
The newly launched Nintendo Switch hybrid has been a hit with their loyal fans selling over 2 million already in the first month, and it seems to be translating into a 'hit' with investors as their stock has been on a steady climb up over the last month, even more so then when big 'N' launched the now infamous original Wii design with its new style of gameplay and controllers.

In just three hours, The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild can drain your battery completely.

InDemand Design’s SwitchCharge portable charger aims to fix that — and gives you a nice stand to go with it.
Finally a way to enjoy the Switch in 'mobile' mode is coming with a nice slim battery pack, that also doubles as a better kick-stand! :)

Yet Another Problem With The First Generation Of Nintendo Switch Systems!

Reported on Reddit, user _NSR reports that after playing with the console exclusively in the dock for an extended amount of time, it appears their Switch has a slight curve at the back, almost as if the plastic is bending to wrap slightly around the front of the device.
So far the Nintendo Switch has been racking up its share of problems, Left JoyCon Disconnect, Hours of WiFi Eating up Resources, causing Gameplay Shutters, Screens that Scratch Easy just by sliding into the DOCK, and now a new DOCK related problem, it seems using your Switch forever as 'console' without removing it now and then from the DOCK causes your 'handheld' part to bend a bit from the heat!

Zelda been rated as the Best Launch Games ever made for any console, with one big BUT...

Of course, it does have its share of issues, but if there’s one problem that seems to have gotten under everyone’s skin, it’s the inconsistent frame rate.
Frames drop on the Switch constantly as Link runs around the vast land of Hyrule, but in a new update released this week, Nintendo appears to have provided a fix.
