    Foam on the range

    While Nintendo remains mostly mum on the issue of some left Joy-Con controllers becoming desynced from the Switch console, it appears it has a solution for those affected.

    Originally, big 'N' told everyone with 'Lefties' problems to stop playing behind their giant fish tank, but it seems the REAL problem has now been discovered, there is tiny piece of 'conductive' foam missing from some batches of 'Left' Joy-Con's and Nintendo is kind enough to offer replacements for FREE giving you your 'Foam on the range' you were missing, so you can go back to both hands on the Joysticks! :)
    Nintendo issued Polygon the following statement today:
    When asked if this simple repair could be performed at home, instead of needing to be sans Joy-Con for a week or two, Nintendo said:
    It also clarified this additional detail with BGR:
    Well thanks to the kindness of Nintendo and some 'foam padding', we can now safely go back to jerking off (Sorry, Playing) with both hands while enjoying the new open-world experience of Zelda.

      one of many simple solutions that nintnedo should have spotted before releasing this system.

      and as for those who have issues, nintedendo should really be requesting customers to send proof of purchase to have new units sent to them, not be forced to send them and be left with a useless console.

      nice that 20 days after launch it already has a new revised replacement, so those that dont know to send them off, will probably end up having to buy the new version.

      lets sit back and watch more revised models come out, think is this a money milking idea from nintendo so they can double sales by releasing fixed versions bit by bit.

      Can I get that in a non-fat foam?
