Joycons can't be used in Airplane mode? Did Nintendo deliberately lied?

In Switch reveal video they showed a dude playing on Airplane with Joy-Cons attached to their hands but in reality it says to connect console itself, so is this blatantly lying from Nintendo itself? False advertising?

Edit: Dude also uses Bluetooth Headset on both Bus section and Airplane while Switch doesnt support that(afaik ? )

I'm pretty sure in the airplane mode settings screen on the Switch you can turn on the Joycons.

Yesterday i played my Switch in airplane mode with separated controllers. There is a setting for this.

edit: The headphones in your picture are wired, you can see the cord. Did you even watch the trailer? Because they even show him plugging them in.

Yes you can actually, it's one of the options when configuring flight mode.

Also he clearly has the headphones plugged in for fucks sake.

This has to be the most factually incorrect thread of the day.

Can we lock this up?

His headphones are plugged and you can enable joycons on when in airplane mode.

Another one your failed pathetic attempt to dismiss the console you obviously have with a passion.

I think maybe if you spent more time studying grammar than you did delusionally crusading against a gaming device, we could kill two birds with one stone here.

While it looks a bit like it, he is not using Bluetooth in that picture tho. You can see the audio cable.

Edit: JESUS what did this guy do to get all those aggressive responses? Come the fuck on, mocking him because his English isn't flawless is just low. Fuck this, I don't care what he said in other threads.

Some are really trying too hard the last couple of days.

For whatever reason I wasn't expecting a new console wars. sigh...

Might just as well avoid forums for the next year or so. :-/

The word choice throughout this OP is great. I too attach my game controllers to my hands when I play games. I also ask the question if a company did deliberately lied.

Don't be a jerk. OP seems to be from Turkey, making fun of someone for not being perfectly fluent in a second language is unnecessarily mean.

Not that I'd want to use the Switch joycons wirelessly, and turbulance or someone moving their chair back and the switch would collapse with that stand, but do you not get the image in the OP if you try this? Did he photoshop it or something? :S

Why are we criticising OP's grammar? Seems like a ridiculous thing to do on an international forum. Criticise his content instead, there is much to criticise there.

I mean, Nintendo are lying, but it's apparently that first image rather than the second.

Why?

Why say you can't use the joycons wirelessly in airplane mode if you can?

They tried man, they tried. Thank god Nintendo had a cable plugged into the console's audio jack. Some of these switch posts are witch hunts.

I mean there's enough legit gripes that it's ridiculous anyway.

Can't you use Bluetooth on airplane mode? My phone lets me use both Wi-fi and Bluetooth in that mode.

Since you can't call with the Switch, it's probably just an easy way to turn off Wifi and BT at the same time. You don't even have to use airplane mode in the plane then with the Switch. Nowadays there's wifi hotspots on airplanes and such. I doubt wireless signals will interfere with anything.

The Switch defense force is quite clearly annoyed at the complaints about the system and are now attacking personally the complainers. : /

I don't really own the system yet, so I can't comment on how good or bad it is. But I think it is silly to try to shut down people's negative opinions on it. Just plain childish.

So I just tested it. When you turn flight mode on, bluetooth will turn off as well. After toggling flight mode you turn bluetooth on manually (with the joy-cons attached to the system of course) and after that you can play with separate joy-cons. Would have been better with a separate bluetooth toggle imo, but it works well enough.

That may be the case, but it should be noted that this thread, especially with the wording it has, is clearly meant to drive (unfounded) negativity towards the system, which is pretty whimsical considering the premise of the OP is completely false and even badly researched (like, he missed the fact that the headphone was plugged in and made a comment on it). This thread is clearly based on a profound desire to say something negative about Switch/Nintendo (which will not surprise you when you check OP's post history on the Switch). Still no excuse to attack someone's grammar of course.

Yes, you can use Joycons in Airplane mode.

System Settings > Flight Mode > Activate Flight Mode.

Doing that activates three additional options, that let you manually turn on the following:

- Controller Connection (Bluetooth) (automatically activate when the main unit is docked, by the way)
- Wi-Fi
- NFC

So, there was no lying or misleading.

Thanks for properly correcting the OP before misinformation spreads instead of only making fun of the thread.

Except it's not a negative opinion, it's absolute bullshit.
