Nintendo Switch and Joy-Con drift problem, another class action against Nintendo starts
Nintendo Switch continues to reveal the Joy-Con drift problem and in the meantime another class action against Nintendo starts in Canada for the same reason.
Nintendo Switch continues to be affected by the Joy-Con drift problem and apparently the company must prepare to face another class actionthis time from Canada, which joins the others already underway.
The Joy-Con drfting problem has not been solved since the launch of Nintendo Switch to date and seems inherent with the controller design itself. This is a defect in input detection that causes the system to erroneously receive a constant signal in one direction even if the stick is held in the neutral position.
There is no official explanation for this problem, but after various research it has emerged that it could be due to a ‘usury extraordinary that is detected in the internal components, due to the friction between some plastic elements that would leave residues capable of affecting the sensors.
Despite hardware revisions, the drifting problem persists and has resulted in Nintendo having to extend assistance customers on controllers, which in the US now provides free repairs after an initial period in which these were still paid, after the warranty period.
This, however, was not enough for the users, who also started the classic class actions. Just last month, Nintendo of America president Doug Bowser spoke on the subject stating that the company is constantly monitoring the matter and trying to fix the problem, but at the moment there doesn’t seem to be. solutions in sight.
Meanwhile, Canadian law firm Lambert Avocat Inc. has filed a new class action suit in the superior court of Quebecrecorded on January 15, 2021 after a user encountered the problem of drifting twice in a row on a Joy-Con sent for repair for the same reason.
