    Here we go! This has been posted before, but now that we can see the damage.. Maybe we won't get the smartass "just don't take it off" remarks.

    What is the quality of the joycons if something simple as adhesive will ruin the finish? Seems like low quality plastic to me.

    Nintendo has some official skins for the switch too..... This won't end well for them.

    I mean they are likely going to have to replace a ton of people's consoles. They have OFFICIAL skins out. If they chew through the console like this, they are going to be liable.

    It's not the plastic breaking but rather the coating, just saying...

    I did post it, but I went unnoticed. FUUUU
    On topic; What about the official Switch skins? Do those have a secret Switch-safe adhesive that prevents them from leaving damage or something?

    It's still damage.

    Seriously, I don't get why people are posting this like it's something new or exclusive to the Switch .-.

    Depends on the adhesive used as much as the plastic or finish. As someone else suggested, if the 'official' skins Nintendo is selling do this, then they've got a real problem. But if only 3rd party unlicensed skins do this, you've got a problem. If'n you know what I'm sayin'.
