Nintendo: "What was that about drifting? Can't hear you over all this money we're making."

"Everybody 1-2-Switch" launches on the same day. I guess the main reason for this game is to push this hardware.

Wait, aren't they selling it with joycons attached?

I think the pastel colors are completely optional and not bundled with a console.

This is cute and all, but do we know if they are more resistent to the drifting problem?

This was my first question as well. Since getting my Pro Controller I haven't went back to joycons, even though I have a brand new white pair that came with my OLED. This is something that Nintendo HAS TO have fixed when the Switch 2 launches. I'm honestly surprised it hasn't been more of PR nightmare for them with the Switch.

If my joycons actually worked, I wouldn't bother with the Pro most of the time (especially in those games that use the DPad a lot, the Pro Dpad is too sensible in comparison to the separated buttons of the Joycon). But the drift has become insane, even after I sent the joycons for repairs.

I too find it hard to believe how easily they've gotten off in terms of public opinion. It appears that nearly all joy cons are experiencing drift after even moderate use. Basically, the joy cons are a trash product. I barely even use mine and they are drifting. I was thinking about purchasing another pair, but decided that I'm not going to reward Nintendo for selling me a crappy product. If I decide to replace them, I'll do it with a third party product.

Does anyone know where I can find a good 3rd party joycon without the issue? Preferably without Dpad and with the separate buttons.

I just want some joy cons that will do the proper haptic feedback. I'm pretty sure that most of the third party ones just do basic rumble.

It’s easily fixed with electronic contact cleaner.

I used the electronic contact cleaner. It did work, but the drifting returned.

How long did you get out of it?

I honestly don’t remember exactly. A few months? I also sent them to Nintendo and they came back in pretty much the same condition. These were launch joycons. Haven’t used other joycons.
