Nintendo Switch: a global outage spoils the Christmas holidays

by Jerry

The Nintendo Switch and its eShop service experienced a worldwide outage on Christmas Day. Many users have been denied access to the game shop. An unfortunate timing since many of them had just received the console for Christmas and they did not have to have a very good impression with this first cuckoo. The situation seems to have since returned to normal.

A global outage hit the eShop, Nintendo'sonline gaming store, on December 25, 2017. This made it impossible for Switch owners to purchase new games for the duration of the problem. A very unfortunate event for all those who received the console as a Christmas gift and who could not try it the same day.

Global eShop outage on Nintendo Switch

Like the last major consoles, the Switch offers an online store where it is possible to buy games in dematerialized. A feature increasingly popular with consumers, less and less attached to the hardware format. But on December 25, it was better to have physical games at the foot of the tree next to the console to be able to enjoy the latter.

Because without the ability to buy or download a game via the eShop, cartridges remained the only way to try the Switch as a family. For those who have received the console and do not yet know which games to turn to, here is our selection of the best Nintendo Switch games to buy.

Such services often experience problems on Christmas Day, with many users receiving the same product at the same time connecting to the same tools. Some slowdowns have been observed by some on the PlayStation Network. According to Nintendo, the problem has been resolved and there should be no more problem accessing the eShop, either on Switch or on another console. During our test, the Nintendo Switch convinced us with its games and its hybrid side.

The Nintendo #eShop is unfortunately inaccessible to some users. We do our best to find a quick solution.
