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

Elbert EdwardsMar 07, 2017

Looks like there are several other hidden functions of the Nintendo Switch, but more targeted towards its Joy-Con controllers.

In case you're wondering what the final result was of his "durability test" it turns out that you can drop a Nintendo Switch for 11 times on a concrete pavement before it breaks.

The Nintendo Switch is a hit with gamers and reviewers alike, though critics agree the console may have some storage issues.

As The Verge notes, PC games don't recognize the Joy-Cons as viable controllers, which means you'll need to use a program like JoyToKey if you want to play with the Switch controllers on your computer. Well, with a bit of jiggery pokery with a program like JoyToKey, you can use the Joy-Con to play games on PC.

If you pull down the right joystick and shine a light on the space just around the top of the joystick, you should see a message that says "Thx2 allgamefans", seemingly a hidden message from Nintendo's developers to people who buy the console.

The Nintendo Switch has been received well around the world. Retailers tell us that they were very happy with the launch and one store even declared: "'Nintendo is back, '" said Christophe Dring, senior editor of Games.Industry.biz. The system is a screen with two detachable controllers (Joy-Cons) on either side.

In a section titled "There are black or bright dots on the Nintendo Switch screen that do not go away, or there are dark or light patches on the screen" Nintendo acknowledges that this issue seems to exist.

But here's where it gets really juicy: "Nintendo strongly recommends that you make a backup copy of any data that you do not remove or delete". But the Switch is covered by the warranty just the same, and these advisable steps apply to the console as well. Film screen protectors are cheap and protect from most scratches.
