Nintendo recently has been sued over an issue with their faulty Joy-Con controllers, and the lack of service consumers have been getting when trying to get help. Nintendo has, unfortunately, been neglecting its audience with each release of its new colored Joy-Cons, and now it is blowing up in their face. The defect is called Joy-Con Drift, and it affects the player by not returning to center once you have moved the Joy-Con. I know it sounds like an underwhelming defect but its actually really frustrating. The error causes your character to move slowly or get glitched in a way that severely limits latency in movements in-game, causing you to lose all the time essentially. This can also affect the camera too, as it’ll just keep going in circles or just always move all over. The Joy-Cons are about 80 bucks, and when they are broken, it can take months before you receive them back from Nintendo after paying to get them fixed. One of the significant issues with this defect comes from Nintendo sweeping the issue under the rug as many of the consumers feel like they are the only ones experiencing this issue when its a ton of people. This bug is sporadic and comes and goes like the wind, but now the ugly defect has come to light. A class-action lawsuit is currently underway, and there is no way to tell how long it will go on before there is a settlement. Usually, in trials like this, it is unlikely that the payout will be high and it can take years till that happens. Hopefully, it is resolved soon.
