    I actually want to know the scale of these issues. Every console/hardware launch has problems.

    What's the big deal?
    The freezes can be solved with a reboot most times. (and if your console is completely frozen I bet ninty would replace it for you)
    The hardware issues can be solved by taking care of it.

    This is breaking News. A console never had defects before.

    It's really hard to gauge the actual proportion of these issues nowadays, since people complaining on social networks get a lot more visibility than in the past.
    Any console is going to have issues for a given % of users, there's hardly any way to escape it, the question is how high the problem rate is.

    So far: this one guy. I definitely would've done a return/exchange with that unit instead of bitching about it on Youtube like it's widespread.

    I just don't get it..

    The joycon issue.. Okay..

    Half that video was people not paying attention when putting on the grips. There's literally a fucking - and + to guide you. If people are really this dumb.. I just.. I don't know...

    Did anyone see the issue with the Note 5? I mean... How can you mess up so badly that you need someone to hold your hand through the process.

    I gotta say, all these issues that people are having is making me never want to buy a switch and start hacking it. This is all rather sad.

    Sliding on the straps of the controllers incorrectly. I was particularly shocked they let that one reach the masses. Seems far too easy to get wrong. I first saw it here:

    That's a surprise to me as well, but they're quite easy to get off without using force.
