Nintendo Addresses The Joy-Con's Drifting Issue Amidst Possible Lawsuit Coming Their Way

Nintendo has finally decided to address the infamous Joy-Con drifting issue, amidst a class action investigation lawsuit that seeks to shed light on the annoying problem that some users are having.

In the most unapologetic fashion, Nintendo has decided to address the annoying Joy-Con drift issue that a coniderable amount of Nintendo Switch owners are having, and their answer is not only laughable but borderline insulting.

First things first, in case you are not aware of the issue, some Nintendo Switch owners have been reporting that their Joy-Con controllers are not responding the way they should; or rather, they respond to stimuli even when they aren't even being manipulated by the user.

This issue has been present pretty much since the Nintendo Switch was released all the way back in March of 2017, and almost two and a half years later some new consoles still come with defective Joy-Con controllers; something that Nintendo has swept under the rug time and time again.

Because of this, a law firm has recently started a class action investigation lawsuit that seeks to shed some light on this issue that some users have been having, and Nintendo has finally, and officially, decided to address this issue.

This is the statement released by Nintendo:

"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 http://support.nintendo.com so we can help."
 
What is deplorable, in this particular case, is the fact that Nintendo considers this Joy-Con drift issue recent, when this has been happening from day 1. Sending in defective units to Nintendo has always been on the table, but never solved anything, since eventually those brand-new Joy-Con controllers Nintendo would send the customer would get the drifting problem.

The good(?) news is that Nintendo did say that they are continuously making improvements on their products, but this still doesn't guarantee that the next Joy-Con controllers won't come with the drifting.

Again, they better do something about this soon, since the Nintendo Switch Lite features that same type of analog stick and it is unlikely that they will send out brand-new consoles to every user with the drifting problem.
