    one of my nintendo switch controllers just keeps jerking characters to the side even though i’m not moving it, does anyone know how to fix this or how i can get it fixed? #nintendoswitch @NintendoNYC @NintendoAmerica

    @BritishPlaying @SpawnWaveMedia Switch wasn’t last and sold decently for the month when we look are recent April’s. The issue is the Sony nearly had a top 10 April of all time. Nintendo is doing fine, it’s just that Sony is selling shockingly well for the month of April.

    @dezscarz The controller issues were definitely not intentional and we've already submitted a fix to Nintendo! We hope to get this patched very soon. Really sorry about the inconvenience.

    @alpharadtv You got this my guy, do what makes you happy and healthy, many others such as myself will support you always! Also, if it wasn't obvious enough in the Nintendo community, video suggestion: new online service and no Virtual Console

    @joeteach I imagine you can’t sell any of these because of legal problems with Nintendo . . .

    E3 predictions that I'd like to see Sony - ps5 teaser (I still think it's a year too early even for a teaser) Microsoft - Halo Online/5 for PC Nintendo - Back compat (virtual console) and revision of the Switch (to quietly fix the hack)

    Realtalk, if a Kid Icarus: Uprising port is announced at E3 (or even a random Nintendo Direct!), I'll pop off hard. It deserves a console port so bad, it's not even funny. It's control and health issues would be fixed, and the visuals + performance would be better than ever.

    Xbox live goes down. Nobody can sign in. No digitally downloads game can be played. Times like these I’m thankful for Nintendo.

    @maximoXjd @DeathByDerek @RetroStudios Why make an action/adventure either? That would be a spinoff. Star Fox is a 3D shmup, that's all it should have ever been. The problem is that Nintendo can't just make a simple sequel to a game, there always has to be a wacky twist. Star Fox lends itself very poorly to twists.

    @NintyPrime Black Ops 4 will be multiplayer only. It will probably require an online connection at all times. Nintendo Switch Online surfaces do not launch until September. Maybe it didn’t give them enough time. Remember, Crash is single player only and is coming to Switch.

  • sonicman4321
    SonicmanTheBest (@sonicman4321) reported

    If MW2 Remaster is confirmed and confirmed to not come to Switch without multiplayer, than that would change my oppnion. In this case, Nintendo would need to talk to Activision. But Activision is publishing Switch games. And Crash is only singleplayer.

    @darealphil247 @WhipperSwipper Persona 5 isn't a franchise. It's a game within a franchise. If Nintendo decided to ride Star Fox 64 for like the 4th time, best believe people would have a problem lol

    @ItsZenoox @NintendoVSUK @NintendoUK @TMNT yeah that's the problem. it seems to count losses as well as wins so when people are losing to their own team it's screwing up the numbers.

    @InkyMary There's something wrong with your internet. I'd call Nintendo support to get tips from them then call your internet provider to fix it.

    My computer, PS4, Nintendo Switch, and so on never have issues. It’s the iOS software.

    @AppleSupport Maybe I will stop buying your products if you cannot get a working update to fix the Wi-Fi. I actually stopped updating because it causes so many problems on my new iPhone X. Restarting doesn’t work either. And none of my devices; computer, PS4, and Nintendo Switch.

    Pretty late on this topic but I pay for an internet service, and then I have to pay PlayStation in order to even use the service I’m already paying for, and eventually I’m gonna have to pay Nintendo for the same thing too. Paying to use something I’m already paying for is stupid

    lol so apparently if your Switch gets banned it no longer uploads errors, because it won't generate dauth tokens. Thanks for the WebKit vuln dev machine Nintendo? Guess they're not snooping on me any more, lol.

    @KontrolFreek I can easily switch from an Xbox to a PlayStation controller no issue but when it comes to Nintendo controllers I always get the buttons mixed up because I’m used to Xbox layout.

    I've heard that #NintendoSwitch users have been getting error code 2124-4007 after modding their console, indicating a ban. But some have also reported that their non-hacked Nintendo Switch is also banned. Shocking and frightening indeed... >.< I haven't hacked my Switch (yet)

    I heard the new CoD "sequel" is NOT coming to the Switch. It's for the best, anyway. We don't want any predatory microtransactions and loot boxes on Nintendo consoles. Pre-Order Crash for the Switch instead.

    @ShinyQuagsire it seems to be an IP based issue, since I know that a Brazilian and a Korean commented that they got the same error code on that reddit post that was tweeted to your original tweet. As far as I know, Nintendo doesn't support either regions at all for some strange reason...

    @GamerGeeksTodd @verdict4489 Caring about the state of Xbox means that I care about gaming in general and not just Sony and Nintendo (whom are doing fine).Sony has less problems where it counts. Xbots tend to sweep under the rug an issue that is persistent with Xbox.

    @tmoreforpaul 1a. What does Undertale literally have to do with this? 1b. What did the game personally do to you? Have a bad fandom? So many other NIntendo games coming to Switch do too. 2. "Fix bugs and glitches" would basically be taking away the only appeal of the game, just sayin'.

    @fwong I mean there are some legitimate complaints but, if people are getting super bent out of shape over it then that’s definitely their problem. Plus, this is like when people were complaining about the Nintendo Labo not being made specifically for adults

    Sean Ellis (@STAGES3V3N) reported

    @kidsmoove Denial is not the issue. Initial omission of critical thought to the original post was the issue. Microsoft started all of this and we (those who frequent non Xbox gaming)all dreaded the day Sony and Nintendo would follow.

    @sevengranddad92 This is so fake. No description of any game would address the issues of past games as their selling point. I’m looking at some of these and they sound WAAAAAAAY too obedient to fans for even Nintendo to consider.
