I have no doubt it will be addressed. Still there's no reason to gloss over it because it's Nintendo. If this were MS the pitchforks would no doubt be out.
did you get a switch? are you having issues with your joycons? The time for speculation and posturing is over, the console is out so unless you have first hand experience to share just STFU already.

don't skin your switch, the adhesive is not good for whatever the console and joycons are coated with.

a red and black, not that orange they have now, but a red and black joycon would've been my pick. I really don't like the colored ones.

and you just like to make shit up to argue for the sake of arguing. I am not pretending, denying, or in any way being hypocritical (do you even know what that words means because you just used it wrong).

The fact is there's no more guessing, the hardware is here. real people doing real things. We will see if the problem is really a problem or if it's a fluke. Either way, I know for a fact you don't have a switch, you don't even like nintendo, but you come into every one of these threads just to pick a fight for no other reason than to be an asshole.

You don't have anything valuable to say, you have no first hand experience and no one wants to hear you bullshit anymore when we can get real accounts from people who actually have the hardware and something meaningful to say.

My left joy con is fine.

I even stuck it in my ass to block the bluetooths and everything. Nary a problem.

Barbra Spectral Lerner is simply a try hard troll. I'm pretty sure he doesn't even believe the shit he's saying.

Even Microsoft had a huge connectivity issues with X1 controllers for a while. To pretend Nintendo is immune is ludicrous.

nowhere did I say they were, nor imply that it's all made up. It could very well be a very real and problematic issue. But we no longer have to wait and wonder and guess because there's real hardware out there so now we can know for sure.

Initial reports from users across reddit seems to lend itself a batch problem. People with multiple sets of joy cons can't recreate the issue on all of them. Looking like a QA issue at this point... now we wait and see how widespread it is and if nintendo will buck up and replace the faulty ones.

I'm also seeing an alarming number of screen issues. Still too early to tell how widespread that one is either but by all accounts nintendo is providing quality customer service with fast free replacements so that's good.

So to clear it up for everyone, we don't need to wait any longer, except when we need to wait, because it's too early to tell, so you should shut up about it and only discuss what screwball thinks is appropriate to discuss, and if you don't own something, you're clearly incapable of having an opinion about it.

LOL.

I saw some posts on reddit that claimed the update fixed the issue for them. Other people say otherwise. I'm playing on a Pro controller myself but my meager testing with the joycons didn't turn up anything bad on my end. It was hardly an extensive test though.

Couldn't find any at any retailers around my area, nor online. Soooo...I reluctantly bought an overpriced one off ebay. Should be here in a few days.

Pro controllers were also hard to find, but one popped up on amazon so bought that.

Even BoTW was seemingly hard to find, everywhere kept saying sold out. Popped by a gamestop on the way to work, they had 2 left, I bought one.

Bought a 200gb SD Card and a carrying case.

Also bought BoTW both physically and digitally for WiiU. The physical one should be worth $$ some day (it's oddly hard to find also, and they're making less of that version), and the digital I can play until the Switch arrives.

ProJared, who is plenty critical of Nintendo, openly said Zelda: Breath of the Wild is the best Zelda game ever made, and an incredible game. I really am insanely envious of all of you who grabbed a Switch and Zelda.

To be fair I obviously haven't played it and really don't plan or want to, that being said watching videos of it , it's not impressive looking from either a visual stand point or a game mechanics stand point. So to me if this is the best Zelda ever, the series has been in a bad place for a while. And Zelda II Adventure of Link was one of the NES titles I really liked back then.

Ive seen a lot of the videos as well. Some seem to do it justice, some are fairly boring to watch, but everyone who has played have all said it's amazing. Even sources that are typically tough on Nintendo and their IP. But like you, I havent played it, so i can't speak from my own opinion. If it lives up to the hype though...
