Human minds work in mysterious ways. Sometimes they manage to create works of art that boggle the said mind. Sometimes, they destroy things for an unclear reason. And sometimes, they do both of those things at the same time.
The destruction is a form of creation is another thing people say, and we can all agree it can be. Seeing this new and perfectly functioning Nintendo Switch turn into a little less new and perfectly non-functioning one has truly been an experience. The little bugger certainly put up a fight as pieces of its body were being gouged out. It is very surprising to see the picture at the sides of the screen holding out for as long as it did. Kudoz to Nintendo engineers!
The machinists guilty of this work of art are also selling it for a really nice price of $565 on eBay. Now, considering that Nintendo is hoping to reach 2 million units shipped by the end of March, this might be a good way to ship a few more. After all, you’d need one to serve as art and the other one to actually work, right?
Why the Triforce, you might ask? Well, it is no secret that currently the only game really responsible for great Switch sales is The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild. That is pretty much it, at the moment, unless you count SuperBomberman R or 1,2 Switch. Nintendo promises much more to come, and there are talks of 64 indie games on their way in 2017.
If there is a moral to this story, it is probably that of the Switch being a persistent little console. This also bodes well to any attempts you (or your toddler) might, inadvertently or otherwise, make in order to destroy any Nintendo Switch you own.
