    again. You not experiencing it does not, in any universe, at any point, ever mean that it somehow magically becomes a non-issue to everyone that has.

    I didn’t say you had to use another console’s controller. I also use GameCube controllers, switch pro controllers, and some third parties licensed by Nintendo.

    You said you use a PS4 controller. So yes, another console's controller.

    Yeah, you have a point here. Still, it's kinda hard to screw up stick replacement unless you're actively brute-forcing through steps without reading the manual first, so once a person gets over fear of "what if I break the whole console", it should be all fine.

    I had to go though Nintendo repair process and it was horrible. I started the repair in beginning of august and still haven't received my joycons.
    Edit: yeah if there still issues they deserve all the flak that comes there way.

    saw this coming a mile away, can't believe Nintendo might get away with it a second time, and it's worse this time because you gotta send in the whole console if you don't wanna dabble in replacing it yourself.

    and for all the deniers, there are tons of videos explaining WHY this issue is there, those little sticks are ass design, they could have used proper analog sticks like the Gamepad Pro ... but nope ... smdh

    This information actually had my dying in laughter x"D those lawsuits sure about to *appear* again lol. nintendo don't learn the first time on the drift issues don't they? the worst part is that these people bought it full priced -just imagine this; your enjoying your light switch and than bam a demonic entity arises and destroys your new switch joycon -drift -than when your about to see if you can fix it. you can't because it's stuck to the darn console itself. -so your screwed on buying another handheld -like gosh damn.

    They should've just made it into a clamshell design with sliders instead of joycons. I feel like exposed/protruding analogs on a portable is asking for trouble. I guess the vita doesn't have stick drift problems though.

    Nintendo should fix the joycon drift instead of the bootrom bug

    (Perceived) piracy risk is their boogeyman though. Controller drift extreme just moves controllers in the opinions of bean counters. So, yeah.

    There is no evidence it has been fixed, while there is evidence that it has not. I've had three sets of joycon and all of them drift, with taking proper care of them. I shouldn't have to replace my own joysticks multiple times instead of Nintendo getting its head out of its ass.

    I like all the complaints that attempt to stifle valid consumer concerns. On the Internet, even the invalid points of view are valid.

    Nintendos priorities are a little shaky as of late.

    I am not surprised. Had they actually done something to fix this drifting issue I think they would have mentioned it to give people a little less worry about buying the lite model.

    I like the ideal of the switch lite and will be getting one but will get the one with the bigger battery 1st.
    If Nintendo is not going to fix the sticks then some one will end up making a new replacement stick for the switch that will fix this i'm sere.

    Well, I guess I'll be waiting for further "revisions" before I buy my first Switch. Good job Nintendont.

    I've had it happen to 3 sets of Joycons, packaged ones, and separately bought ones, including a fucking Hori one, the issue is with the stick design, it's prone to quick wear n tear. and has nothing to do with being barbarians while using the joycons, they're just shit design...
