Anyone ever had to send their joy cons off to Nintendo to get fixed? My right one is now drifting up when it sits neutral. Causing grief playing FPS games and messing badly with the camera in Xenoblade.

I want to get it fixed, but don’t want to be switch less for weeks.

I sent one of mine in for repair as the home button was broken. They received it on the Friday and it was shipped back out to me on the following Monday. Think it was about a week from me shipping it out to getting it back.

Okay prime day splurge, Switch & Mario Odyssey bundle, case, comfort grip, and SD card. Though I think I should have gone for the Mario Tennis bundle...
Hope they have an offer on some more Switch games/controllers

That’s pretty good. Did you need to lay anything? Just postage to them I take it?

Any idea if any of the controller calibration stuff could maybe help my issue?

Nope, just went through the support website. It generates all your shipping labels etc. You do need to enter your purchase date and order confirmation or whatever proof you have.

Realised my 64gb card only had about 5gb left on it so thanks for posting this. strawberry floating NBA2K and it's ridiculous storage requirements.

The upcoming cart release of The Banner Saga Trilogy is the latest title to need a download to get the full game(s). The storage requirement is TBC but, with the downloadable versions of the three titles requiring 13Gb, it looks like the publisher has cheaped out by using an 8Gb cart. Personally I see zero point in buying a cart if you don't get the full game on it; it's rather frustrating.

Don't reward publishers for cheaping out on game carts and passing what should be their cost onto consumers.

One man should not have this much power in this game. Luckily I'm not an ordinary man.

I've seen a few people mentioning that you can get cheaper prices on certain estores, is that just a case of changing your region on the Switch, or is there some dodgy proxies involved? (Also, is there a site that collates all the best prices? :shifty: ) Some of the UK prices are £10-15 more than the cart versions, but if there's any way I can get them for a decent price I'd be more willing to go download.

Luckily so far all the cartridge games I've got are Nintendo games (well, and Snipperclips), so there's been barely any updates.

I've not tried it but supposedly it is just as simple as changing the region on your nintendo account on the website and then going into the store on your Switch. I think you do need some form of payment in those regions, not sure if Paypal works.

Amazon prime day with 9% off Arms and a pair of Joycons.. I want Arms, and a pair of Joycons would have been a good option.... Genuinely annoyed at how poor of a discount that is

Living the region-shopping dream. :datass:

The only thing to remember is you do need a valid payment method for the region you are switching to, and it is also worth checking if the region has additional tax applied based on zip codes and the like - you will save less if you enter a zip code with a higher sales tax.

I use a free Revolut card for most of my eshopping as it gives good transfer rates and you don't get an additional foreign currency charge, but it doesn't work in any of the North American stores (Canada, USA, Mexico).
