As the world is facing the emerging COVID-19 pandemic, Nintendo has decided to close its all repair centres. This is again an example of disruption of industrial operations in gaming industry due to COVID-19.
This step has been taken as per the federal and local guidelines issued by the government officials. Nintendo said in a statement- “No repair orders will be taken further till the repair services resume. The company honoured the warranty of all products will be extended to the number of days the repair centres are closed.
The repair centres cover array of Nintendo hardware’s like handheld DS switch, Classic Edition consoles and more. The company offered no timeframe when everything will resume to normal till then there will be delay in company’s responses and processes.
However, it is yet to find whether the production of PS 5 and Xbox Series will be affected by this action or not.
