    Hi, As the title implies, the playtime on BOTW on my switch profile is no longer updating, it says "100 hours or more" I reached the 100-hour mark about 6 months ago and I estimate that I've played about 25-40 hours since then but it still says 100 hours? what gives? there have been at least 2 days where I've played over 6 hours in one day so it should be about 125-140 hours or more but it isn't.

    Thanks!

    also, breath of the wild is the only game on my system with this issue, I called Nintendo about this issue and all they did is apologize and say they reported the bug.

    I've had the exact same issue with ARMS for months, just started updating again yesterday.

    I miss the 3DS/Wii U way, where these things not only worked, buy you could actually see a detailed report, not "blah or more" but an exact value up to minutes, and you could check it in detail along the months, years, days.

    Really, why did they make that feature go...

    It's the same for me on Xenoblade Chronicles 2.
    I have spent around 80 hours, my log says 50 hours or more.

    Maybe because I played it without being connected to the internet and shutting down my switch after every play session(You have to hold the power button far too long).

    I have a similar problem with Xenoblade 2, but in that case the ingame time count is what goes wrong.

    I know I've played around 100 hours, and that is what my log say, but ingame it says I'm over 200 hours already (also in the Save File menu).

    I suspect it is counting sometimes even when the game is suspended.

    update: I used the option "initialize system without losing system information" (or whatever it's called) and left BOTW on the title screen connected to the internet all night... nothing, still "100 hours or more"

    The play time counter isn't exactly accurate as you've noticed.
    The play time in the Parental Controls mobile app is more accurate as it shows play time to 5 min accuracy, but it only shows daily play time, or a monthly total, I can't find a way to view the overall total.

    If you think that modern day consoles will last you 20 years, you are damn wrong.
    Snes and Nes maybe, but that shit was made in japan bro.
    Modern stuff is made in chinese sweatshops for 1$ a piece.

    Even NES and SNES probably won't turn on after 20 years without changing capacitors.

    Nes's are over 30 years old and they work just fine.

    I don't see anything wrong with the switch. Example: most Wiis still work and they came out 11 years ago, and they are cheaper feeling than the switch.

    @Jacobf0303
    Switch has more components than wii. A lot more in a lot more cramped place with non removable battery and lcd screen

    actually, both the screen and the battery are replaceable, you just need to warm them up with a heat gun since they both have adhesive.
