Nintendo is known as the most innovative gaming company in the world for a reason. They’re always pushing the boundaries and expanding on the idea of what gaming really is. Enter the Nintendo Switch. This hybrid console has been around for over a year and has already left its mark on the gaming world. You could play it traditionally on your TV screen or in handheld mode on the go. The library started off small, but has quickly grown into an incredible one.

Since the Nintendo Switch is very new compared to the PlayStation 4 and Xbox One, people are still learning about what they can and can’t do with the console. It turns out that there’s quite a few things people think are fine to do to the Switch, but actually aren’t. Watch to see what you should never do to your Nintendo Switch!

  • logicalfundy

    Interesting watching this in 2019. Some of this information is outdated by now, here are my thoughts:0) Great that you mentioned Crafty Hackers, why not put a link in the description?1) Still good advice. Should be mentioned that the important part is a 56K ohm resistor that higher quality cables have that the cheap ones might skip. Also Anker has released portable chargers that are licensed by Nintendo, might be worth checking out.2) Today we have many alternatives that allow you to fit the electronics from the official dock into them; they should be safe to use assuming you don't damage anything when making the modification. I'm also going to take the controversial stance that there are some third party docks that are safe to use; just make sure the manufacturer is aware of the incident with Nyco docks and has thoroughly tested their dock.3) Meh, this seems to be here to pad the list to 10 items.4) Outdated information - current skins don't harm your Switch, just make sure you're not purchasing skins that were made before the problem was discovered.5) Basically good advice for any portable electronics.6) Since the service has now launched, I guess this is outdated advice?7) Standard advice. I guess it's good. Personally I'm careful, but with younger kids definitely have them use the straps. Most of the time I'm using the grip, though - not a big fan of motion controls.8) This becomes confusing advice once you read their next point. Although to be fair keep in mind physical games have advantages like no worries about them becoming unavailable if Nintendo decides to close the eShop in a few years, as well as being able to sell and trade them.9) And ok this completely renders their reasoning in the previous point rather questionable. If you can buy a micro SD card, why be so harsh on downloading digital games? But the advice they give in this point is still valid: The officially licensed micro SD cards are rebranded SanDisk cards. Nobody has found any differences or advantages to using the licensed cards. Also larger cards are going down in price, so look for 200 GB or larger cards instead. Theoretically the Switch caps out at 2 TB (approximately 2000 GB), so you can currently go as large as you want.10) Ugh, I still wish Nintendo would fix this. Almost a year later and this hasn't changed.
