Nintendo Switch: Exchange deal is fake news
Did you hear the rumour that you could switch your Switch for a new Switch if you bought an old Switch? Lots of people got excited when news appeared online chat sites, saying that gamers could swap their current Switch for the new model, as long as they could prove they bought the system after Nintendo announced that the console was being updated. There were even YouTube videos which looked like they were confirming the news through Nintendo sources, but it was all fake news. They have told one tech website that said that they do not have a "Nintendo Switch exchange program". Some gamers say they haven't been satisfied with the original Switch - saying that the battery life is too short for it to be a proper portable console.
