RROD and Faulty Game Damaging Disk Drives helped the 360 and PS2 numbers respectively.  When people love a product, or a woman, or a movie, or whatever, they accept faults and limitations because their love overrides these obvious negatives.  Every console has had its share of pros and cons...and in this case at least we can just use a Pro Controller rather than purchase a brand new system 3 or 4 times.

Can we please stop saying this about the Pro Controller? It's been beat to death in this thread that the Pro Controller is this shining beacon of non-drifting bliss... it isn't true. I have one and it drifts. Mostly every Splatoon player or Smash player who uses the Pro has drifting on theirs, too, and there are loads of videos and tutorials around of how to fix it or whatever, just like there are for the Joy-Con. It's a Switch issue, not a Joy-Con one.

man oh man, you’re always so feisty.

no problems at all with my pro controller. Wasnt’t aware there were any. Thanks for the well meaning information.

I mean look at his avatar. I read every one of his posts in Rocket's voice because it just fits so well.

I would say, however, that it isn't a Switch issue so much as it is a Switch control stick issue. Whatever Nintendo did with the control sticks this gen, they need to fix it ASAP. I have this nice Zelda themed third party one that mimics a Gamecube controller and it has no problems, but all my other controllers have drift in both sticks. I've tried some of the easy fixes, but I'm afraid to try the more complex repairs on my own. The videos I've seen make the insides around the stick look very fragile. I might eventually get desperate enough to try though, worst that happens is I break it and need to buy a new one, but since I can't use it anyway as is, no loss there. I'll do it if I ever get enough friends in my area to actually do local multiplayer.

I'd hate to have to do the repair on a Pro controller though, that's an expensive thing to fuck up on. Besides, it's pretty bullshit that we have to resort to these measures anyway. Some people are saying that people with this problem need to just fix the controllers they have, but I've owned consoles since the third gen, and this is the first console from any company that I've had the controllers just break like this (with the exception of the ones I broke when I was pissed...). Bottom line is we shouldn't have to do this. I think it's pretty justifiable to be pissed here. Fiesty, even.
