    Exactamundo. Most "hackers" are legit fans of Ninty, and I would legit hack my Switch just for emulation (because of the sucky SNES/NES Online Service and the cash-grab 3D All Stars) but I'm scared of getting the almighty and powerful Nintendo banhammer because I still wanna play online (Among Us and Mario Kart 8) but still have an emulation haven at my fingertips. I would LEGIT sell my left kidney to play some Gamecube/N64 games legitimately on my Switch (without Nintendo's lazy emulation). I feel so conflicted.

    Anyways, yeah, it's EXTREMELY offensive that Nintendo has an unlimited budget when taking innocent hackers to court, but refuse to fix a MAJOR flaw in their console design.

    Yeah actually a brand new set of Joy-Cons I bought had drift on one of the controllers on day one.

    Brand new ones do it too. I know from experience.

    Apparently, yes. And seeing as how you can't detach them, you'd have to send the entire unit to get it fixed. I've got two pairs on standby in case my OG launch JCs get drift which hasn't happened, thankfully. Nintendo should really look into investing in better parts rather than cheaply made analogs and boards. It kind of sucks that you pay around $50 to $60 for a hunk of plastic and wires that breaks easily.

    What's worse the BOM and assembly cost for ninty is probably less than $25

    Man, if I actually cared about the Joycons, I'd be upset about the drift too. Too bad I'm using the superior Pro Controller instead, so I don't really think this lawsuit will do any good.

    It can force nintendo to fix the joycons, provide refunds/rebates, imagine if they make em do a factory recall....

    hmm...I knew it had something to do with a car accident, but I had originally thought he was a pedestrian. he was also the inventor of the virtual boy I believe, and he blamed Nintendo for its failure, citing that they didn't give him enough time. yoshi loosely could be translated as companion, but I think Miyamoto said the name was based off Yokoi, because they were friends. that's what I remember without looking anything up. lol

    I don't use my joy cons much. I've only used them with odyssey, because the motion controls with the pro controller are awkward. I never encountered joy con drift with either of my two switches though.

    but I beat that main bonus stage, the crater one with 15 parts or so, after having a smoke many times and with the pro controller. not using this pipe (this is the pipe my sister got me for Christmas). I smoked with a separate marijuana pipe, and that got me "eye of the tiger." :P

    I've fixed 20+ joycon at this point. Watching a youtube video and having good lighting and the tools is enough for anyone who can physically perform the task. It's not as bad as people think it is, though the stuff is pretty small.


    But don't get me wrong, fuck Nintendo for this.

    I actually never got drift again ever since I got them replaced for free by Nintendo. Sony should be getting sued by people because EVERY single ps4 controller I own has stick issues and they just get worse (tbf they go through heavy use)
