Is Switch Too Hot For Its Own Good?

It is understandable to assume that Nintendo Switch is not as powerful as the PlayStation 4 or Xbox One. This becomes more obvious when it's pushed to its limits it's apparently flexing its muscles too hard for its own good.

Even in its brief time on the market and in the hands of buyers, the system has gotten a reputation for getting quite hot when in use. As a mobile gadget, that's not entirely out of the ordinary, but some Switch owners are now claiming that the console has gotten so steamy that it's actually physically warping when left in docked mode for extended periods of time, and they've got photos to prove it.

Multiple Switch owners have taken to Reddit to voice their concerns over the system's temperature woes. One Reddit user, _NSR, provided photos (above) of the console that he claims was left in docked mode. When removed, the system appears to have a very noticeable bend.

One commenter reported that after finding the deformity they were able to get Nintendo to send a pre-paid shipping label, with the company stating that they would either repair the unit or transfer all of its data to a new console and then ship it back.
