    Really desapointed by Nintendo. How stupid do you have to be to keap a known disfunctioning part?

    to be honest from the teardown it did appear they were using the exact same mechanical parts on the switch lite so it kinda stands to reason they would inevitably develop the exact same faults, that also said very minor drift as shown in this video could just be a calibration fault and recalibrating the joycon in the settings screen would fix it, the more cynical side of me would also say it's entirely possible to purposefully miscalibrate the joycon to simulate drift to get a bit of attention

    How does that make sense.

    Its the analogue part itself thats the problem and i already said in a post before it came out.

    Its a bad idea to do the controls built in, not only does the lite go against everything nintendo marketed the switch as, and that most games festures are now not supported.

    When nintendo continue using the same parts, it now means you have to send your entire console off for repair rather than just the joycon.

    Or take the full system apart rather than the joycon.

    The switch lite is just a fuckfest console and its nintendo milking money out of its fans that buy every console revision.

    I dont even understand why they removed dock support, never mind tabletop, multiple players using the joycons. Most motion based games wont work as its required to have joycons detected or functions easier without holding the brick tablet.

    Already seen a couple of these sort of videos, but I never see one where they show the drift, then go into the settings to recalibrate, then back into the game to see if it's still there. Is it possible that one could use recalibration to create the drift in the first place?

    Everyone would be happier if they just went the PSP way, focusing on making a good console and less on security that will inevitably get cracked after a while.

    This seem to be a different issue. It seem to be a deadzone issue rather than wear and tear.

    It could be fake
    You could put in a stick from a normal drifting joycon into the switch lite but I bet this is going to be an issue anyway
    Fuck Nintendo with the switch
    I wish the 3DS could never die

    Mine's still alright, no defects; we'll see though. In any case, still a decent handheld, so I don't regret getting it even if I'll have to replace sticks for better quality ones at some point.

    As much as I love my 3DS, it wasn't the best console for indie games - Switch is the first handheld that can actually boast a massive support from indie devs (though Vita was almost there), which is why I'm glad that portable gaming eventually moved past 3DS "big publisher or bust" days.

    The 3DS also had issues with the L and R buttons.

    Most Xbox and PS4 controllers will drift eventually,
    from what I see it is a good design from nintendo to design a joystick that can be replaced without soldering (a bit of disassembly though)

    If this turns out to be a mass issue with the Switch lite, I'm not surprised. Nintendo denied the problem until faced with a lawsuit, and by that point the production of the Lite had already begun.
