In recent months, GAME has had a difficult time, cutting their profits forecast blaming the lack of Nintendo Switch consoles among other factors harming sales.

So it's not the fact that Game are a complete rip off? I highly doubt the Switch is hounding their profits. I literally know only one person who has one, besides I've seen plenty of shops have units available without a problem.

I'd own one if they were readily available. You still need to check "instock" websites to get one.

Yeah, a single console should not harm them too much.

Yes zero hour contracts no toilet breaks and a woman even gave birth in a warehouse bathroom. Saying that most big companies are dodgy today giving part time contracts so they can force you to do overtime as they see fit.

None of this crap happened in the 80s and 90s this is what happens when you have open door immigration to poor countries.
