Many people who have previewed the Nintendo Switch earlier today have reported issues with the Joy-Con’s. If it was one person who reported this, you would think that they had just received a faulty unit but in this case it’s more than one person.
Kotaku’s news editor Jason Schreier confirmed in a tweet that he has had issues with the Joy-Con’s by saying “Yep, my left JoyCon desynchronizes as I’m playing. Gonna be a big problem if they can’t fix this with a firmware update!” Other members of the media posted on NeoGaf about their issues, with the user othersteve explaining he’s having the same issues as Polygon reported which was that the controllers were unsyncing randomly.
Another member of the press posted on NeoGaf that they had two issues with the controllers. The user Listonosh (from GameZone.com) said “One is with the battery not charging all the way even when it’s docked, and the other with some issues of input lag in rare cases when the Joy-Con are detached from the console itself.”
