Because low quality product.

After losing billions of dollars all generation off of Wii U and 3DS (which isn't nearly the success people like to believe it is), Nintendo seriously couldn't afford to spend capital on making the product better.

Now that Switch has been selling well, they can release a new model and phase Joy-Cons out completely. They'll make millions off of screwing people over and they'll be praised for it, like usual.

All consoles have hardware issues. It’s hardly something that only happens on switch.

The sad thing is that fanboys will try to pretend that JoyCon drift doesn’t exist. Pathetic!


I've had no issues with mine personally /shrug
It's not the fall that kills you, it's the rapid deceleration.....

Luckily I finally had my right Joy Con joystick fixed. Took it to the local Technology Plaza, a guy fixed it for $250 MXN (Around 12-13 USD).

I do hope that future Joy Cons are better built. Nintendo is famous for their products' quality, and the drift being a common issue speaks bad of them.

My poor phat PS3... I still haven't decided what to do with it. Just trash it? Sell it for its pieces at the Technology Plaza?

Fortunately I haven't had the Auto-eject problem with my PS4 lately, at least.

Insecurity much? TC didn’t mention anything about this being only about Nintendo.

ive had the Switch for about 2 years and i never experience this issue. I don't have a pro controller either and all I use are the joycons.
Never thought I'd miss the food on Corneria.

Finally had the left Joy-con start drifting. Shrugged and replaced it with the left Joy-con from mom’s Switch. She hardly ever uses it and will only use it for Animal Crossing anyway. Quick and cheap fix.
Official Fierce Deity in my own mind.
