Digital Foundry Says Nintendo Switch Joy-Con Issues Still Present After Day-One Patch

Leading technology publication Digital Foundry is reporting that the day one patch for the Nintendo Switch doesn’t resolve the issue of the Joy-Cons de-syncing. Reports were swirling round the internet earlier today proclaiming that the patch had addressed the issue, but Digital Foundry have confirmed that this simply isn’t the case.

The Nintendo Switch’s day one system update has launched, and there are reports online that installing the patch with the Joy-Cons attached updates the firmware on the controllers, resolving the de-sync issues. Is this really the case? Unfortunately not. We’ve updated our console with controllers attached and re-run the battery of tests detailed below. In all cases, the range and consistency of the connection of each Joy-Con remains the same, and the left controller still has demonstrably weaker range than the right. Eurogamer has contacted Nintendo several times now concerning this issue, and we still await a reply.
