Nintendo is Getting Sued For Faulty Switch Joy-Cons

If you’re an avid gamer of the handheld-slash-home console, then you might have been warned about a weird issue with the Joy-Con. If it detects movement even when you are not touching it, then it is experiencing something called the ‘Joy-Con drift.’

A lot of owners have already complained about it which is why US law firm Chimicles Schwartz Kriner & Donaldson-Smith decided to file a class-action lawsuit against Nintendo. According to them, the selling of the Joy-Con violates “various consumer protection statutes as well as various warranty and common law claims.”

Nintendo has spoken up about the said ‘Joy-Con drift’ issue:

“At Nintendo, we take great pride in creating quality products and we are continuously making improvements to them. We are aware of recent reports that some Joy-Con controllers are not responding correctly. We want our consumers to have fun with Nintendo Switch, and if anything falls short of this goal we always encourage them to visit so we can help.”

However, when asked about the lawsuit, Nintendo refused to comment and simply said: “We have nothing to announce on this topic.”
