Joy-Con drifting persists.
The Nintendo Switch has had a troubling year due to the problems found in its Joy-Con controllers.
The Switch Joy-Con controllers have issues with their analog sticks that can lead to drifting issues, which cause the analog sticks to act as though they’re being pushed forward even if left untouched. These issues force people to send the controllers back to Nintendo for fixing, which is free in the US but costs a small fee in other parts of the world.
The drifting issues have led the French consumer’s association to label Nintendo as one of the worst companies of the year in the country alongside chain stores like FNC. The Joy-Cons were the main reason behind the inclusion.
