The new updates Nintendo Switch and Joy-Cons on Nintendo Switch Lite can be huge for players. Since its release in 2017, it has been praised almost all over the world. However, there has been one major problem since its launch, which is Joy-Con drift. Stick drift issues aren’t unique to Nintendo Switch.

But now the situation is getting worse in Europe, and it will soon be difficult to ignore it as it used to be.
Nintendo has said in the past that it can’t comment much on this topic because all proceedings are involved, but it suggests that it doesn’t matter, This naturally offended many owners of hardware that was otherwise fine...
