Nintendo must recoup their losses for the Wii U disaster from Nintendo loyalists but its their parents' money Nintendo is after.
This is why no one in my family play Nintendo scams.

Must be because your parents refuse to buy the Switch for you then?

I live in NY but I found a way around any tax with digital games. I changed my zip code to a city in Delaware (no sales tax there) then I buy a Nintendo Eshop Card. I bought Bloodstained: Curse of the Moon for $9.99 no tax :D I been doing this for years since the 3DS launched back in 2011 and never had any issue. If you use your credit card then it won't work.

You guys are to funny XD. This also works in the game Guild Wars 2 when you buy GEMS. One game it does not work is in Overwatch I tried so many times changing states with no sales tax. I guess Blizzard checks your IP that's the only way I see how they know where you are. I'm sneaky I use Amazon for reviews then use eBay to buy the product out of state hehe again no tax.

The carts cost more than blu ray disks and they dont want digital prices to be cheaper than retail. I didnt find the article very funny either, nice try though.
