Since Nintendo's Switch launched in 2017, the company has achieved tremendous success with its handheld hybrid console. At least thanks to solid, even-produced titles such as "The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild" and "Super Mario Odyssey" – but also thanks to the design of the console itself.
The removable Joy-Con controllers made Switch one of the most flexible gaming experiences & # 39; The brand, and brought a lot of fun. Now, however, they also seem to bring many frustrations, says The Next Web.
Many of the Joy-Con controllers seem to have had an ongoing tendency to "drift" to some time of use, where & # 39; thumbs up without input. Not surprisingly, this can cause problems in games, where you can quickly and easily execute your character from a cliff of himself.
Group case against Nintendo
This has now been escalated to a group behavior in the United States, where many affected users have joined forces to pursue Nintendo for the error. It is the law firm Chimicles, Schwartz Kriner & Donaldson-Smith who has been tasked with resolving the lawsuit by the judicial system.
According to her, the main problem for their clients, the Switch owners, is that Nintendo refuses to repair the error for free. Instead, they refer users to the purchase of new Joy-Con controllers.
This would barely have been a business practice that would have allowed Norwegian consumer authorities to have a five-year guarantee on all major electronics here in Norway – and generally also two years warranty. Considering that the Nintendo Switch has been around for almost two years, if someone here in the country has to face the same problem as the US users have to get.
However, Nintendo does not seem to be interested in commenting or resolving the problem, so the outcome of this case will set an important precedent for future issues.
