Top 10 Problems with the Nintendo Switch


The Top Ten

1 Many copies of the console are faulty

I got my switch on launch day and I never had any technical issues. - Atham

There's a number of different news, polls and YouTube videos of people's Switch consoles facing a number of different technical problems. Even one of my friends also got a faulty one. - Mcgillacuddy

I don’t believe that there is anything wrong with the Nintendo switch, however it’s worth allot more money!

Mine works fine and I got it a month or 2 after it was out

2 It's a bit pricey

It's the fourth cheapest console by LAUNCH. Its accessories are overpriced, but not the Switch itself. - shawnmccaul22

In other countries yeah, but in America isn't too bad. Unless you count those scumbag scalpers... - Rue

What? $300 is the regular price for a console

know right

3 There aren't many games at launch

I'm mostly happy that there wasn't too many games at launch. This allowed Nintendo to slowly release new games, instead of releasing them all at once causing a drought of post-launch games for the system. - Atham

The Wii didn't have many games at launch and it still did very well. You can't really have a lot of launch titles, you don't want to overwhelm your consumers on which games to pick, especially when many will be only picking one game when they first get the console. - Rue

Out of the launch titles, only one of them is amazing. It should be fairly obvious which game I'm talking about here...

Hopefully this will improve in a year's time or so. - Entranced98

4 Paid online service

I wouldn't have a problem with it if it actually provided some bang for my buck. I don't like paying for an online service that offers a pretty unreliable connection. And don't get me started with the voice chat via mobile app, or not all games supporting cloud saves. - Atham

Only 20$ a year - GleamingShadow

As long as it's inexpensive and fixes the god awful wifi connections that previous Nintendo consoles/handhelds had, it shouldn't be too much of a problem. - Rue

Only $2 a month, *cough* cheap *chough

5 There's not much storage space on the console

Could be better

SD Cards, anyone? Especially since unlike the 3DS, it can use SDXC. - KalloFox34

6 Poor WiFi connection

Ugh it gets annoying!


7 The dock scratches the screen

To fix that get a screen protector that's why they exist.

Why would it scratch the screen that is just poor tech

8 The Joy Con controller disconnects

idiot - GleamingShadow

It's, um, y'know, supposed to? - TheInsomniac

The left Joy Con to be specific.. - Rue

9 It came out too quickly after the Wii U

The Wii U was literally out for only FOUR YEARS. - MarioBros11

It came out years after and they needed money - GleamingShadow

It kinda sucked for me because I was really excited when I got a Wii U for Christmas, and then the Switch came out the following year. But that was just my experience. - TheInsomniac

I am planning to get a switch quickly, I hope they don't release another console only 3 years after it's release - B1ueNew

Won't happen. They released the Switch because the Wii U failed, and since the Switch is Nintendo's fastest selling console of all time, they probably won't release anything else until Microsoft and Sony do. - KalloFox34

10 The coating of the console gets damaged by third-party skins

Oh no - TheInsomniac

The Newcomers

? Joy-Con drift

The Contenders

11 Most of the Best Switch games already have Similar versions on the Wii U

Really? Name ONE similarity between mario Odyssey and 3D World other than you play as Mario. - TheInsomniac

12 1-2 Switch
13 It's Not Backwards Compatible

Uh, what does that MEAN? - MarioBros11

14 Not enough AAA games
15 Nintendo Switch Online
16 No Touchscreen for Games

It DOES have a touchscreen. - KalloFox34

17 It's Too Colorful

and? - GleamingShadow

If you shake it around in someone's face it could give someone a seizure! - EliHbk

18 AAA games are overpriced
19 The Wii U ports
20 Overpriced Accessories such as Pro Controller and Additional Dock
21 Charge port on the bottom

Can't stand your Switch up while charging, very big flaw.

22 Most of the games are reused from the Wii U

The wii u gets all the luxury but the 3DS games get the short end of the stick. They to give ports to games like pokemon USUM and Mario and Luigi dream team.

23 No Internet Browser

The switch is dull. Other modern consoles have it. Why not the switch?

24 It's Popularity Will Encourage Other Console Makers to do The Same

Just imagine everything on this list but with the PS5 or Xbox Two.

25 Chibi Robo Zip Lash
26 Wandering/drifting controllers

I HATE this, it basically screws your controller, and you'll either have to repetitively clean your controllers or buy new ones
