Anger over Joy-Con drifting issues appears to have finally boiled over, with a US law firm reportedly preparing to file a class action lawsuit against Nintendo.

Details about this come straight from Chimicles, Schwartz Kriner & Donaldson-Smith – the firm currently looking into the possibility of a such a lawsuit. Here are some additional details from its website:

CSK&D is investigating a potential class action based upon reports that the Nintendo Joy-Con controller for their Nintendo Switch gaming console can experience joystick drift issues. Specifically, it is reported that the joystick on the Joy-Con will automatically register movement when the joystick is not being controlled and interfere with gameplay.

This obviously isn't the first time something like this has happened. Nintendo's legal section has had to deal with plenty of patent claims over the years. The firm currently making headlines is asking anyone experiencing Joy-Con drift issues to contact its attorneys, by filling out an online form.

Never had issue with the joystick on my joy-cons but if there is substance to the lawsuit, I wish plaintiffs best of luck.

...and complain about it also drifting a year later. Cool.

Still, I do wonder why it took people this long to start talking about this more extensively. It's always been a well-known issue.

Hope it can at least accomplish making Nintendo taking the issue seriously and fixing it in the future.



Can I get a free game?

Probably because in the past the warranty covered free repairs/replacements and now we've reached the period where people are having the issue after their warranty has lapsed.

An additional reason for more discussion about this is that Switch rose to the unquestioned #1 in weekly/monthly console sales this year, so there's more desire for negativity.



Legend11 correctly predicted that GTA IV (360+PS3) would outsell SSBB. I was wrong.

Joy con drift is a real problem. Nintendo deserves this one.



I've had the problem since launch day. I bought my kids a Switch this past Christmas and they're complaining of the same issues. Plus countless other complaints I've heard personally of the same exact issue. It's not a coincidence at this point.
