Numerous owners of the new Nintendo Switch have complained of an issue with the console, claiming that it's 'warping' under extended use, particularly while in its dock.

Photos posted in a Reddit thread showed the console noticeably bent out of shape, and some other owners said they had seen the same physical distortion on their devices. TechnoBuffalo reported having observed the same issue on one of their Switch units too.

Some owners have said that they've reached out to Nintendo, and at least one of them said that he had had a positive response from the company's support team. After bringing the issue to their attention, he stated that Nintendo had offered to repair the device.

Nintendo hasn't yet commented on the 'warping' issue. It follows reported connectivity problems with the console's Joy-Con controllers, which the company acknowledged after several weeks of complaints, putting it down to a "manufacturing variation" which had been corrected.

The Nintendo Switch went on sale last month, priced at $299.99, and became the fastest-selling console in the company's history. If you're thinking of buying one, make sure you read our detailed review of the console first.
