A poll of 50 people is not very telling at all honestly.  Not to mention we have no way of telling if people are voting to hate (it happens) or if there are double votes.  If that is how you gather information, it is hard to take your  claims seriously.

Also you too need to check my first post (I quoted myself on the previous page for the other guy I am talking to), I stated that it does seem like a wide spread problem.  Just because I point out the hypocrisy of how people jump on Nintendo and not the other console makers that have had this same issue in the past, or other issues for that matter, it does not mean I am saying the problem does not exist.  As you said afterall, your own isolated experience does not mean it did not happen woth other consoles as well.

There are a lot of other polls on the internet...

For example this one: https://www.nintendolife.com/news/2019/07/poll_have_your_joy-con_been_drifting

Thats one from a nintendo centric gaming site, so probably most of the regular readers are nintendo fans. Roughly 50% of the voters (1100 out of 2200 people) have always drift issues with their joy cons, another 25% (around 550) say that they have sometimes issues. Do you really think it's not a widespread problem when 1650 out of 2200 people report issues?

I was looking for that poll, thanks. :D

Ok when did I call YOU a hypocrite?

The only thing I did was respond you after trying to call me out for pointing out that this kind of thing has been happening for a long time and posted my own personal experience.  At no point did I say Nintendo fans in general are hypocrites.  Those that DO fall into that category know who they are, so there is no need to say anything beyond what I did.

So the real question is why are you being so defensive?

Sure, I'm the defensive one. Maybe it's because you came into a thread dedicated to SWITCH OWNERS that spent ACTUAL MONEY on a Switch, and told them they were hypocrites, simply on the basis that they'd complained about a Nintendo product, with no proof that they've not complained about other companies products, when if fact all you know is that they claim to own Switches, so clearly we can't all hate Nintendo that much. You're seeing enemies where there are none. We're just Switch owners talking about our Joy Cons in this thread, not a conspiracy to hate on Nintendo.

Read it again, I said the internet in general , which includes haters and the media.  At no point did I say Switch owners.  Also I came to a thead for Switch owners that spent money on the console because I myself am a Switch owner that spent money o  the console.  In fact, it is my main console.

So again, really hard to see why you are being so defensive.

Well then you really don't have a place telling other Switch owners what they can and can't be upset about. It's just weird to talk about haters and the media when that's not what the thread is about, so I figured you meant the people in the thread. If not, then whatever, just understand that a lot of us are really concerned about this Joycon thing.

Well perhaps I should have been a bit clearer.  This thead hit me at a time when I was particularly annoyed with the constant downplay of anything positive about Switch on another website (N4G) and the lated fuel for the fire were these Joycons, something I nor anyone I know in RL have had an issue with.  However there the comment section was littered with obvious trolls and it annoyed me.  I guess my frustration got the best of me and a bit of it bled out here, which led to miscommunication between us.

Sorry if you misinterpreted what I meant, I sometimes tend to not have the best wording when I get fired up.  No use arguing with eachother.

Yeah I'd rather not argue with a fellow Zelda fan :)

And what were you doing on N4G? That place is a dumpster fire, and was nasty towards Nintendo fans as long as I can remember.

I visit it because it is a good source for gaming news most of the time.  Why I even bother with the comments section though...yeah I don't know because you are right, it is a dumpster fire through and through.

Not yet. Day one Switch owner here. I had a ton of issues with Xbox One controllers, though. I own five Xbox One consoles and more drifting issues than I can count. Two times right out the box. One controller only connects when it wants to.



Twitter: @d21lewis  --I'll add you if you add me!!

Day one Switch owner and I have a left joy-con drift problem. I've always had it. Bought my children a Switch this past Christmas and they also have the drift problem. It certainly isn't a common issue in ALL consoles like someone posted here previously. This is a major issue that Nintendo needs to fix. My Pro controller is excellent tho. I've put hundreds of hours on it and it works just as perfect as it as the day it launched.

Nintendo responded and the answer was some PR BS as always.



I know... my English sucks.
