Joy-Con drift has been an ongoing topic throughout the Switch’s life, but Nintendo is reportedly arguing it “isn’t a real problem” and “hasn’t caused anyone any inconvenience”. Ouch!
This is all according to the US law firm Chimicles Schwartz Kriner & Donaldson-Smith (CSK&D), who is now supposedly calling on consumers who previously contacted them (via email), to provide video accounts detailing how Joy-Con drift has personally impacted their experience with the Nintendo Switch.
“Thank you for contacting our law firm about the Nintendo Switch Joy-Con Drift litigation. We are working on putting together a montage of video clips from Nintendo Switch owners such as yourself as a way to give voice to the joy-con drift issues you’ve experienced. This will be helpful to us in responding to Nintendo’s arguments about how this isn’t a real problem or hasn’t caused anyone any inconvenience.
“In an effort to humanize and demonstrate these issues and their impact on consumers, it would be helpful to our prosecution of the case if you would submit a short (90 seconds or less) video to us describing your experience with the Joy-Con drift on your controllers.”
It’s all tied to the firm filing a class-action lawsuit against Nintendo in July 2019, for “claims relating to alleged defects” in Switch controllers, and accusing the video game giant of unfair and deceptive practices.
CSK&D wants all video accounts by 16th October and plans to share them with Nintendo’s attorneys and representatives.
