    It's not as if it's effecting gameplay tho. The only problem I have ever is where the left joycon stops responding. It only happens in Zelda tho. But a lot of people have the desync issue.

    My left joycon appears to move ever so slightly but I wouldn't exactly call it loose, it really is very slight.

    Yea my right has an incredibly slight wiggle to it. Like, I have to put a little elbow into it.

    It shouldnt be mad wobbly, but much like the 3DS hinge, I think it should have slight give to prevent breaking.

    Same here, but my right one is stiff as a oldman on viagra. I got like 1-2mm movement if I push it on the bottom. But for me it felt like it stopped a lot lately. Either that or I don't think about it anymore.

    Left JoyCon is loose, as well as it being wonky from time to time (e.g. joystick not working, controller freezing up).

    Get your crap together, Nintendo.

    So my neon joycons were snug when purchased however the right one now exihibts some slight play. Maybe I'm thinking now this is normal however tape on the bottom of the switch rail has sorted this

    Murder doesn't exist. I'm still alive so all those other people that died are just pretending to get attention.

    They didn't "properly" test because the small amount of defective units will generate sales in the joy con department. Car manufacturing companies, electronic companies, basically any company put those defects there on purpose to generate more sales for replacement parts.

    More than not it costs them money due to bad publicity, warranty repair and returned products. Not to mention having to listen to all the criticism, hate on their tech forums among other places.
