I'm normally down to defend my boys at Nintendo, but this Joy-Con thing has been a real thorn in my side lately (thank goodness for the Pro Controller). IMO, the Joy-Cons haven't displayed an acceptable level of reliability for a game controller, much less one that costs 60 (to 80) dollars. Apparently some others agree, as a lawsuit has been filed against the Big N.

Here's the link if you've had issues and want to join in on the fun!

CSK&D has filed a class action lawsuit against Nintendo of America, Inc. (“Nintendo”) for claims relating to alleged defects in the Joy-Con controllers that are part of Nintendo Switch gaming consoles. The complaint, filed in the United States District Court for the Western District of Washington, alleges that the joysticks on Joy-Con controllers are defective, leading users to experience drift issues. Specifically, the complaint alleges that the joystick on the Joy-Con controllers will automatically register movement when the joystick is not being controlled by the user and interfere with gameplay. The complaint, filed on behalf of purchasers of Switches and Joy-Con controllers, brings claims under various consumer protection statutes as well as various warranty and common law claims.

Yes but take a picture of your box and shipping label in case UPS loses in for two weeks like in my case. :P

Ah, alright, there it is. One of mine is drifting now.

Does Nintendo send you a box to ship it to them in, or am I gonna have to go through the chore of finding a box and printing off a label and taping it all shut and...

They just give u info on what to put on the label - there is no charge on anything.
Looks like they replace the sticks outright - joycons stay the same
