Nintendo worked hard on keeping the price of Nintendo Switch Lite under $200 but it appears they cut corners in a wrong place. Users started reporting Joy-con drift after only a few hours of use, prompting a class action lawsuit.
Nintendo Switch Lite is something many Nintendo fans looked forward to but it appears they found themselves disappointed with the handheld device's quality as many users started reporting drift on the analogue sticks.
In case you are not familiar with the term, drifting happens when enough dirt accumulates in a controller to make the system register movement even if there was no such user input present at the time. This can also happen due to low-quality materials, as opposed to just having openings for the dirt to pile up.
Considering this is a $200 product, a single playthrough of Breath of the Wild is not enough to justify the drift and the lawsuit seems to be rather reasonable. It is no secret that Nintendo to keep Lite's price under $200 which may or may not have prompted them to create a sub-par product when it comes to material quality.
