Recently, we reported that a class-action lawsuit had been filed against Nintendo over the notorious “Joy-Con Drift” issue faced by many disgruntled Switch owners.
Of course, the big question on everyone’s mind now is what this could mean for Nintendo moving forward? Speaking to Gamedaily, Odin Law and Media Attorney Brandon J Huffman shared his take on the lawsuit, and the best and worst case outcomes that could result.
“I think social media has amplified this to be larger than it actually is. If 100 people total had this problem, and all posted about it and posted video, it does not mean, necessarily, that they are representative of millions more with the same issue. Time will tell if that hypothesis is correct.
Whether this lawsuit will succeed is a crapshoot at this point… For Nintendo, the best case is it gets dismissed or the class does not get certified for some reason. Worst case is that Nintendo faces millions in damages and millions more in attorneys fees, but I think that is pretty unlikely.”
What do you think? Will the lawsuit be quietly dismissed or will Nintendo have to take responsibility for the drift? Let us know in the comments below.
