Do your Joycon drift?

Mine don't drift.

Sadly, my right Joycon instead doesn't work independently anymore, only in conjunction with the left one, either connected to the Switch or to the grip. Pick your poison...

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.

Agreed about the Pro Controller.  We have two of them and both have been flawless.  



I have been wondering what was going on lately with the share. The whole boost of the Lite annoucement has vanished and I could not find an explanation.

What else could it be ? EVERY boost and de-boost had a specific reason.



Current PB on Secret of Mana remake : 2h27 (2nd)
Strongest worldwide achievement on TGM : 1st European S13 rank
Fastest TGM3 MASTER in Europe : rank Master V in 5min10
Western record on TGM3 EASY : 1484
Current PB on Power Ranger (Game Gear) : 10min06 (World Record)

Non-geek activity : ThermalHungary

That explains why sometimes my analog stick has a mind of its own. Thought I was the only one, looked it up, appears to be a common defect. They better have it fixed with the new switch model, can't change joycons with that model.

Yeah. My original Blue and Red have drifted.
I bought the Green and Pink (Splatoon) in January and its working fine for now.

But I also bought the 8bitdo stick which is a USB you plug on to the Switch dock so you can use a Wii U Pro and PS4 controller (I think some Xbone controllers also work) for your Switch. I had a white and Black Wii U Pro controller so it was perfect for me. And I suggest people should do it too.

You can use a ps4 controller on the switch? I'm definitely "Switching" :P

Free repairs but most repairs take 2 weeks.

Yeah. That is what it says on the 8bitdo description.  I dont have a PS4 controller so I cant test it, you can search on forums online for those who have tried it. It will save people a lot of money. 



Pocky Lover Boy!

That's all I wanted to see though. I have a controller that works, so I'll make it for those two weeks. At least this isn't replacing entire consoles like with RROD. Free Joy-Con repairs are pennies by comparison.



Sure enough, the PS4 controller on Switch thing is real:

Edit: And here's an article on the free Joy-Con repairs, for those interested.

Considering that their quarterly report is just around the corner, this are probably short-sellers who are expecting (or hoping for) a negative outlook.

Also, it's above the long-term line, so at least a part of it is simply profit-taking from earlier buys.
