    Following our report on the statement from drand to "not buy a skin for your Nintendo Switch", Skinit, another device accessory maker, has reached out to us in reaction to the news, confidently confirming that their skins do not damage the Nintendo Switch upon application and removal.

    Below is the full quote from John Buss, GM of Skinit Acquisition, surrounding their findings:

    TL;DR: Skinit performed several tests on retail Switches with their own skins and concluded that their skins are Switch-safe. This is due to the different formulation of adhesive that Skinit uses, which is more conducive to surface adhesion and removal compared to other companies' industry quality adhesive.

    Below is a video-proof sent to us by the company:


    And some pictures for your eyes:

    That marble white one looks slick! I'm glad someone found a fix to the skin issue, and in a fairly short amount of time, too!

    O-only one Gohan skin? Tsk, tsk, I am disappointed, Skinit. /sarcasm
    But they do have one for my college, and that's pretty rad. I'm actually impressed.

    They do! Cubs, Tigers, Rangers, Yankees, Dodgers, etc. As far as I can tell by looking, they have all the MLB teams. In multiple styles per team too.

    I actually wasn't going to get a skin before, but I may get one. Seem like a really good idea. Better than getting actually rubber grips.

    Fucking called it. It's Dbrands superduper adhesive that caused the problem. But noooo... all skins were all of a sudden bad. Jesus...
