  • Here's advice from Nintendo for fixing Switch Joy-Con issues

We've heard a lot about the Nintendo Switch controllers this weekend, mostly because they refuse to work properly.

You can then choose to restart or turn off the system. Nintendo chose to innovate rather then follow, with their new console the Nintendo Switch. Nintendo is-as is usual with their new consoles-promising robust third party support this time around, and the upcoming games list is long, but Breath of the Wild looks like the most compelling Switch exclusive confirmed so far. Lose your console and you've lost your progress. A recent news told us that iFixit did arrange a Nintendo Switch and were working on it.

Nintendo did not immediately respond to a request for comment when contacted by USA TODAY, though the company does address the topic in the "troubleshooting" portion of the Switch's United Kingdom help page.

Syria conflict over Aleppo amounted to war crimes against civilians
Subsequently, planes, described by several witnesses as Sukhoi jets, carried out attacks, killing several aid workers. It also found evidence that the Syrian government had used prohibited cluster munitions.

With quite a few indie developers like Chucklefish and Image and Form releasing their titles on the Nintendo Switch first, it will be intriguing to see if they will port any of the Joy-Con exclusive gimmicks over to PC. So that way you can get a rough idea of how to handle your Switch and when to be careful and when you can cut loose a little bit. These include the system itself, Joy-Cons, and a logo. Of course, if consumers plan on keeping one skin on permanently, this isn't an issue - but for those who want to keep their Switch in top condition, it's certainly cause for concern. This slow software trickle was likely what doomed the Wii U to be the worst seller out of Nintendo's home console offerings.

Overall, the Switch is a good console for the price, and it has the potential to be a game changer in the gaming industry for the near future. Perhaps one of the most interesting parts is that the screen is made from plastic and that it is not very resistant to scratches.
