Nintendo to no longer charge customers for Joy-Con repair according to internal memo

    VICE has posted an article about an internal memo from Nintendo, stating that Joy-Con repair will be free for customers going forward, warranties aside. Customers who paid for repair can get a refund.

    “Customers will no longer be requested to provide proof of purchase for Joy-Con repairs,” the internal customer service details say. “Additionally it is not necessary to confirm warranty status. If a customer requests a refund for a previously paid Joy-Con repair […] confirm the prior repair and then issue a refund.”

    Recent controversy has sparked with the Joy-Con, as many reports have come in stating that the sticks are drifting or “moving on their own”. This has been a problem for quite some time, and Chimicles Schwartz Kriner & Donaldson-Smith or CSK&D filed a Class-Action lawsuit against Nintendo for it.
