Update: Lawsuit officially filed. https://ninfora.com/forums/index.php?/topic/3325-switch-joy-con-drift-class-action-lawsuit... If you don't know about this whole deal with the Switch Joy-Con drift, watch the video in the spoiler bellow first. Luckily I haven't experienced this, yet. Though, I know there are a lot that have. I really hope this goes somewhere, because this is a major design flaw and Nintendo hasn't said a world. Joy-Con aren't cheap, ya' know ...Even for a single one. If you haven't experienced this yet, you will eventually. This really makes me wonder about the Switch Lite. Hopefully they didn't use the same control sicks as in the Joy-Con, because you'd be screwed if you start getting drift. You can't just buy new Joy-Con. I know you can just replace the sticks on the Joy-Con yourself, but most people are comfortable doing that and on the Lite, It would probably be more of a pain. In an all perfect world, Nintendo would fix this flaw and replace everyone's Joy-Con sticks for FREE.
I'm guessing this was one of the ideas Nintendo was throwing around when they were prototyping the Switch. I don't see how this design would be that useful, unless they were going for a Wii Nunchuk desgin for when using the Joy-Con separated. Plus adding more moving parts means a higher chance of it breaking/wearing out overtime.
HORI is releasing special Joy-con form Daemon X Machina... So, Pro Controller X Joy-Con? These actually look pretty cool. I love the Idea of actual controller styled Joy-Con. Though, are these comfortable? How much heavier do they make the Switch? Too bad they will only work in handheld mode, since they lack a battery.
