This reminds me of the shitty triggers on the dsi. anyone remember that shit?
I'm A Potter Head
And this is why you should get a Wii U.
GD SaurmaneX
Most of these problems have a solution or a reason.

Fucked up textures: scratched or damaged game card.
Crashes: every console does it.
Grips getting stuck: retards are trying to slide it off the wrong way. You're supposed to unlock it, grab the strap and pull upwards (across the length of the joycon)
Scratches: scratches aren't even that bad, it's just a little scratch on a screen. Just get a screen protector or put a thin cloth on the front of the dock. Nintendo always makes their products with plastic screens (which scratch but are almost impossible to shatter) rather than glass screens (which shatter but are hard to scratch) so be glad they didn't choose the other option.
That guy who showed the joycons coming off easily: you're putting them in wrong. If you push down further, it should click and it will lock.
Other issues: you bought it at launch, where most people would get it, meaning Nintendo would need to mass produce Switches, meaning they may be a little rushed or faulty, I bought mine a little under 2 weeks after launch and it has no faults whatsoever

Get your shit together people
rebjr
Why do you buy a console when it first releases? I havent bought a ps4 yet.
Demised Dragon
A lot of consoles have issues when you get them at launch.
TheBowserJrFan
fell bad for those they spent 300 hundred dollars
ElDiablo1210
prolly the result of trying to mod it
ZeldaFan556 Keller
The error one happened to me too, you just need to shut it off and turn it back on
evilepic Mudkip
turn it off then turn it back on
Dark Link
You know what I don't get? I don't get why people like to choose sides in gaming. So what if Sony is better than Xbox or if Nintendo is better than Sega? Why don't we stop arguing like babies and just play games for their true purpose, Fun?
Venular Spider
It's no longer a Nintendo switch
It's a fidget cube
EggoDoesAYouTubes
What a surprise, using the console incorrectly and not reading the instructions leads to people breaking it and blaming Nintendo for their mistakes.

Someone, call the authorities!
3000
ive never seen a machine actually make the stereotypical electronic noises that you see im si-fi movies until now
Visionous1Gaming
This is why a buy the most recent consoles A YEAR AFTER it's release...
GameCubeGuy01
So glad my Switch worked, am enjoying it so much!
LTGPlayz
Now I am deciding not to buy one.Like if you agree
whatsupman966
most of these problems are solved by blowing into the game slot
Dom_The_Dodo
did nobody at nintendo see this as a bad idea?
Ezequiel Espinal
a large amount of this has problems with legend of Zelda
Asriellover3456
I'm telling you when I get a switch and it screws up...Nintendo hope I dont come to Japan

This is why you don't buy a console at launch kids
Lavergne
Hey ahhh for the Screen like giving epilepsia try to put down the bright of the screen and then up and down a little bit times i dont really now if it is official fix but for me work
AuroraDragon636
At 0:11 the video froze (as in the YouTube video)
coincidence? I THINK NOT!
Shark GD
mine had a blue line across the screen in the second day and i just restarted the console and boom nothing bad ever happened again
Shark GD
the clips with the joycon straps those people just flrgot to unlock the straps or they are just weak pussys
Kat Kat
Ya know, I'm sooo glad I didn't get this when it first came out...
PhonicAmoeba8
I have a Switch and I never got problems. The problems are because people don't know how to take care of things.
Potatosauce112 Vids
2:00 that almost sounds like shooting lasers
dvy dvy
Just Dance
Birds Must not die
Wtf Nintendo
Skyline8180
Meanwhile, smarter people waited a couple of months later to buy the Switch to avoid these early launch hardware issues.
Fab Derp

Golden Gaming
Some of these or normal console glitches. Game freezing, models glitching, etc...
