Nintendo Switch is Nintendo’s latest console with a very innovative and unique design. The console can be used as a handheld and it can be docked to a TV. According to a few users of the Nintendo Switch on Reddit and NeoGAF forums, the console is allegedly bending/warping while in docked mode.
The bending issue is not just reported by one user only. A number of users over at NeoGAF forums are reporting that the Nintendo Switch starts to bend slightly while in docked mode for around 40-50 hours. A few users are also reporting very slight bending in the Joy-Con controllers.
A NeoGAF user also posted pictures of the slightly bent Nintendo Switch console:
Over on Reddit, user “_NSR” says that his Nintendo Switch started bending/warping after playing The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild for 40-50 hours while in docked mode. Here’s a picture of _NSR’s bent Nintendo Switch, which he shared on Reddit:
The Switch user on Reddit also says that the console gets “very hot” while playing Zelda: Breath of the Wild in docked mode because it has to work hard to output to a large display.
“It does get very hot, considering how small the system is and it is outputting breath of the wild for long periods of time on a big screen, it may be too much for it to handle.”
– Says Reddit user “_NSR”.
We currently don’t know how many users are experiencing this problem. Another user on Reddit says that his Nintendo Switch is working absolutely fine even after a lot of use in docked mode.
“I’ve played 150 hrs of Botw in exclusively docked mode. My room is also quite warm due to a boiler heating system in my house. My switch has had no problems in any way. You definitely have a faulty system. Send it in for repair with nintendo. They’ll send you a new switch and transfer all your data to it.”
– Says another Reddit user.
This problem is not experienced by everyone but only a few users. Nintendo has not said anything about the situation. For more on this, stay tuned to GeeksULTD.
