Epic Nintendo Switch hardware bug sounds like psychedelic prog rock

It’s kind of nice on the ears, if you dig that sort of thing.


It’s fair to say the Nintendo Switch is suffering from a few bugs, some more serious than others.

One owner has posted a video of a particular musical disruption, where the system pumps out some sort of repetitive synth rock that could have been big in the 70s with acid casualties.

It starts out like a spaceship landing before trying to take off again, goes silent, and then comes back for an electro encore. Put some strings behind it and a reading by Richard Burton and call it a new intro to Jeff Wayne’s War of the Worlds.

Either way, it’s not good is it? If this happened to you on a piece of kit you’d just paid north of £300 on you wouldn’t be too happy.
