The Fastest-Selling Nintendo Console Is Crashing Just As “Successfully”

This week debuted with great news for Nintendo. The Switch console registered record sales the previous weekend, showing the burning, continuous interest for games and consoles. Yet, the joy  was short-lived after users complained of crashes, errors and dead pixels #objectmagic

Friday, Nintendo Switch was released in stores to the excitement of many fans. Thing is, after users got them out of the packages and turned them on, several experienced unpleasant bugs and issues. Another problem occurred when getting the Switch out of the dock. Screens got easily scratched and smudged, while more than a couple users and testers got the joy-cons stuck in their wrist straps:

Loud noises, flickering screens are just a couple of problems detected by the rest of the first generation of Switch console users. This is a bit worrying – if the devices continue to malfunction, the company might be forced to recall them and work on the hardware and software issues. It would be another product launch fail and a bad start of the year for the company. I say this, of course, in the context of the massive sales in the first two days after launch.

New York Times’ Nick Wingfield has tweeted about the success of the Switch after taking an interview of Reggie Fils-Aime, president of Nintendo of America. The sales surpassed those of Wii, even. Moreover,  The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild was the best-selling launch title in the company history, said Wingfield:

The only way these numbers are going to grow or at least not drop massively is if Nintendo fixes those issues soon. Ignoring them won’t bring anything good.
