Class action lawsuit officially filed against Nintendo for its joycon drifts
 

 
image

District Court for the Western District of Washington at Seattle, the suit alleges that a number of Nintendo Switch owners are experiencing drifting with the Joy-Con controllers; this means movements are being registered in games when the analog sticks are left untouched. If the drifting gets bad enough, it can render a Joy-Con practically useless.

Diaz sent a faulty Joy-Con to Nintendo for repair under the one-year warranty, only to experience drifting again a few months later. At that point, he said he would have had to pay for an out-of-pocket repair and decided to purchase two additional left and right Joy-Con controllers for $90.

Diaz and the class represented in the suit allege that Nintendo is fully aware of the drifting defect from its own pre-release testing and numerous online complaints received from its customers and yet the company continues to fail to “disclose the defect and routinely refuses to repair the joysticks without charge when the defect manifests and never disclosed this material defect to consumers.” The suit claims that Diaz’s “experiences are by no means isolated or outlying occurrences. Indeed, the internet is replete with examples of message boards and other websites where consumers have complained of the exact same Joy-Con defect.”

That being said, Hoeg also stressed that “California is generally the most ‘consumer protection’ oriented of the US jurisdictions, and no doubt why the lead plaintiff (from CA) was selected.” From a PR standpoint, it’s not a great situation for Nintendo, but the company does need to take any possible legal consequences seriously as well.

Goodlookin on the info.

I purchased one of those 30 pro-ish controllers., some of the inputs would fail to register but I just blame that on cheap products. Gonna pick up that 70 pro controller and hopefully won't have this problem.

True


But this is system wide issue across the board with a large majority of the switches. It needs to be addressed and fixed properly by the company that made them

The controller analog stick's sensor drifts (moves) into a direction without the player moving the sticks.

lol I cant front tho, buddy makes a good point. Plus if M$ did it for red rings, it would be a bad look if Nintendo doesn’t remedy this situation.

Have no issues with my day 1 switch joy cons but had to send my daughters in (bought her switch a year later) and her extra for a repair due to drifting. Im thinking because she is rough with the controllers playing Fortnight.

I replaced the joycon analog stick and fixed the problem. They sell the kit with tools included for $15 on Amazon.
