Nintendo has fixed the joycon issue with a piece of foam?

Seems like it fixes the issue though.

A hardware issue that won't be fixed by firmware. Huh, who was it that argued that's the most likely scenario, yet still got posts deleted? Oh, right, me.

The other thing to note is the same guy reporting the fix, which is a tiny piece of foam added to the inside of the joycon, bought a joycon off Amazon before he sent in his joycon for repair and the Amazon one works perfect and  yet doesn't have that piece of foam but is otherwise identical except the circuit board inside had a diff #.

I will probably end up returning my unopened switch to bestbuy after all.  Will avoid this issue altogether and the scratching reports, not worth the $20 profit to resell on ebay, and I'll probably never get around to playing zelda in this decade anyway.  Wake me when Mario hits.

Managed to get one yesterday and bought 4 of those Gamestop $75 gift card for $65, effectively getting my Switch for $260. Thanks CAG!

Did you guys see how the new Xbox One controller model costs $70, and it still isn't rechargeable out of the box? Now the people complaining about the Pro controller price have something else to complain about.

With Salt and Sanctuary coming soon on the Vita, I would love to see it on the Switch too.

(Kinda) figured out a way to see total playtime hours on Switch for those who have wanted that. But be aware that after a certain amount of time instead of giving you an exact number it just gives you a super judgmental estimate.

pft "or more"  [-(
