There's A Dangerous Reason Why You Shouldn't Put Stickers On Your Nintendo Switch
They could destroy your console.
Be careful if you were planning on adding stickers or skins to your shiny new Nintendo Switch - reports are coming in that doing so may damage your console and your joyous Joy-Cons.
dbrand, a company that manufactures console skins, has confirmed that after testing its products on ten retail units, "after removing the skin, it was obvious that the coating on the Joy-Cons do not play well with any kind of adhesive."
Unfortunately, it also confirmed issues with the main Switch console itself, too.
After the tests, the company confirmed it was cancelling any skin pre-orders and refunding those who’d already paid for Switch-y stickers, warning consumers to "not buy a skin for your Nintendo Switch."
That said, rival skin company Performance Designed Product stated on Facebook that its officially-licensed skins will not harm your Switch in any way, with all skins being “rigorously tested and approved by Nintendo.” Some users aren’t convinced, though.
“Both Nintendo and PDP took great care to find the right combination of materials and adhesives that worked for the system,” reads the PDP statement. “Consumers should have confidence that our skins feature the quality and performance you expect from an officially licensed product.”
