So I've been thinking about picking up a Switch because it has a ton of indie games with physical releases but I have one concern. In the early days it was reported that the Switch controllers were warping and I never really heard about a resolution to this. Is this actually a problem and are there any other issues with the console right now? If I need to wait until the second version of the console comes out I will.
Not the controllers, the whole system. The most likely explanation I've seen is that poor air circulation while the Switch is docked causes the plastic to heat up and flex. A quick search (Google is your friend, by the way) pulled up articles from August about how the problem still hadn't been addressed, so you might want to hold off a while longer.
The amount of heat that it would take to actually cause the plastic to bend is way more than the Switch can actually produce. Mine has a slight bend to it, and it’s just the way the plastic is manufactured. It’s still functional, fits in the dock okay, plays well, etc. i would just recommend putting a screen protector on it. It’s the perfect time to buy - it already has a nice library and Mario Odyssey is out in a couple weeks.
