Nintendo Dodges if Switch OLED has Fixed the Joy-Con Issue

Following the confirmation of the long-anticipated Nintendo Switch OLED upgrade earlier this month, while there has certainly been more than a little praise for the quality of life improvements the revision seems to be bringing, on the whole, I think it would be fair to say that it lacks anything to get overly excited about when compared to the original system. However, since the Switch OLED was confirmed, one of the biggest questions posed by the community is whether, with this new design, Nintendo has fixed the ‘joy-con drift’ issue that has plagued its controllers ever since the console was released.

Well, following a report via The Verge, if you too were wondering about this, then the news isn’t seemingly good as, quite frankly, despite being directly asked this question on several occasions, Nintendo is apparently refusing to answer it.

Nintendo Switch OLED Probably Doesn’t Address Joy-Con Drift

Having reportedly been asked this question by at least four different media outlets, it seems that Nintendo is deliberately not answering this key point as to whether their new and upcoming Switch OLED has seen their controllers tweaked in order to attempt to stop the joy-con drift issue. In other words, without them saying anything one way or the other, I think it’s pretty safe to say that they haven’t done anything about it. Not that this, incidentally, should be surprising as Nintendo has barely acknowledged that the issue ever existed in the first place despite masses of consumer complaints and even a class-action lawsuit!

What Do We Think?

Given that the Nintendo Switch OLED is set for release on October 8th, while it does certainly seem to be bringing a lot of improvements to the table, by and large, they’re not what most people seemingly wished for. Most notable among which is that this revised design has not introduced any 4K compatibility. A factor that not only seemed to be the most logical ‘upgrade’ aspect but one that consumers likely would’ve been far more interested in than a nicer quality screen or better stand.

Still, it is what it is, and that also apparently includes the possibility that your controllers might start to develop problems.
