RUMOR - Nintendo may have been a key factor in Amazon's cancellation of their 20% preorder discount on games

Amazon killed off their 20% off preorder discount on games awhile back, and it made some major waves with consumers. Many were upset to see the discount go, and wondered why it was yanked. Now we're hearing that Nintendo may have been a major factor in the decision.

As you well know, Nintendo and Amazon have had quite a tumultuous relationship, and those flames may have only been fanned by Amazon's preorder discount. Nintendo was supposedly so against the idea that they yanked their software lineup from the retailer, and didn't give them stock until 2 weeks after launch. Nintendo let Amazon know they weren't okay with the 20% discount, and showed them as much by withholding stock. It was this move by Nintendo that inspired other publishers, who ended up putting the pressure on Amazon as well.

Obviously Nintendo nor Amazon is going to comment on this matter, so we'll just have to take the inside information for now.

Thanks to Dondom95 for the heads up!

RUMOR - YouTube finally coming to Switch on Nov. 8th, 2018

People have been asking for YouTube on the Switch even before the system launched.

RUMOR - Diablo III: Eternal Collection amiibo are on the way

Diablo III: Eternal Collection is coming to the Switch later this week, and as far as we know, all the goodies have been announced already. The game itself and the special Switch bundle are public knowledge, but could there be something else on the way? Dataminers seem to think that there might be another surprise in the near future.

Datamined info from the game point to three types of supported amiibo.

- Default/Generic Amiibo
- Treasure Goblin Amiibo
- Demon Amiibo

Now I don't know about you, but I've never heard of Treasure Goblin or Demon amiibo. Those would certainly seem like they'd be specific to Diablo III itself. The thing is, wouldn't these have been revealed already? Either this info is a relic of what was considered at one point, or there's still one big secret left for Nintendo and Blizzard to reveal.

Is today's Smash Bros. Ultimate leak just crazy enough to be believable?
