It's a huge problem. It's one reason why I won't buy a Switch Lite, even as a gift for someone, until a few months have passed and the control sticks have time to break if Nintendo hasn't fixed the problem by then. If there aren't any complaints, I might get one for my girlfriend, but one concern I have with the Lite is its potential to become a financial disaster for Nintendo if the control sticks are still drifting, because you often can't fix them, and that would mean a lot of people would end up with useless Switches that they can't get new controllers for because they're built in. And I mean useless, because most games are completely unplayable for me now. People would just get rid of their Switch, and feel too burned to get another one, unless Nintendo replaces it, or at least does thousands if not millions of free repairs.
