What happens when a Nintendo Switch falls from 1000 feet; A durability test

Posted by

In a video from YouTube channel Unlock River (via Polygon), Nintendo Switch endures on a 1,000-foot drop and continues to be functional, leaving its Joy-Con to the ground torn into small pieces. The video shows a durability review of the Nintendo Switch console has determined that hybrid scheme stays operational after it fell from an intense height.
The Switch is tied with a tape to coil it and hook it up to a drone. They set the drone to fly to a 1,000 feet high. As it settles above, they cut the tie and it propels to the hardened parking lot on the ground, surprisingly it withstands despite the impact, according to Gamespot.
The conductors of the durability test are working with its presumption that there is no camera trick or pony business that goes behind the scenes. Definitely, it appears legal.
The said video on YouTube is not the first drop test which people have administered for Nintendo Switch. GizmoSlip, a YouTube channel had its operators fell the console for 11 times from a five feet height, way back in March. It happens before the console closed its operation.
Never drop a Switch to the ground is the best aim to have, if one can avoid it. However, it is a good feeling to know that the hybrid system seems quite long-lasting in instances that when one accidentally falls it to the ground.
Today, the CEO of Rockstar’s parent company says, “We believe in it. We see it the way [Nintendo does]; it’s been a very successful launch. It remains to be seen how it does, but we’re excited about it. Assuming there is an installed base, we’ll be there. Not with all of our titles, but selectively.”, according to the other Nintendo news.
Nintendo’s fastest-selling console ever is the Switch. It has sales passing 2.74 million units in its prime month.
