  • Nintendo Switch deletes playtime data after a year

Nintendo Switch users are discovering certain playtime stats gathered since the console's launch are resetting and erasing info. After it became apparent to Nintendo that more than few people had this problem, they launched an update that seems to have fixed the problem the majority of console owners. Since then, fans have embraced the system's unique ability to alternate between handheld and TV mode and its ever-growing library of great first- and third-party games. ResetEra members and Reddit users say that their 500-plus hours in Breath of the Wild have now been reduced to a simple, inaccurate note: "First played zero days ago". The reset has affected players worldwide and suggests that the Switch was only programmed to keep track of playtime for one year. This is a major uptick compared to the 3% making games in 2017. The strategic adventure-RPG combined the wacky world of the Rabbids with the iconic Super Mario franchise, resulting in an epic quest for all ages.

December 2017 - As a thrilling close to 2017, Nintendo launched a sequel to the original Xenoblade Chronicles RPG series, Xenoblade Chronicles 2.

The Nintendo Switch has had a monumental first year where it has already outsold it's predecessor the Wii U in lifetime sales, and Nintendo is already stating their big plans for this year.

"Some Nintendo Switch owners' play activity information is displaying incorrectly", the company's statement reads.
