    Skin-making giant dbrand announced today trough twitter and Reddit that they won't be selling Switch skins. Good guy dbrand.
    "Why?" You must be asking yourself. Turns out the Joycons' surface doesn't go well with skins; and neither does the console itself. On their website, you cannot order skins anymore.

    They also stated that anyone who preordered a Switch skin would be refunded:

    This is what the Switch console would look like upon removal:

    What do you think? Were you going to get one?

    Strangely enough, I like the design of the damage. Gives it a cool roughed look. I wouldn't be complaining :P. Wonder if anybody would buy a skin on purpose just to get that look.

    Strange...they say "an extended period of time", but it's just been released for a day. In terms of skins and covers, I'd say that is pretty darn short. :unsure:

    Maybe it's based on their previous experience with this type of material and/or this type of surface, and know that after a week/month the skin fuses with it and can't be removed.
