What you need to know
- Every controller suffers from thumbstick drift after some time it seems.
- Nintendo was recently sued for the same problem.
- It seems like Microsoft is the latest one to be hit regarding the Xbox One Controller.
- Plaintiff Donald McFadden says the problem is large-scale.
Almost every controller suffers from thumbstick drift after some time, and it looks like plaintiff Donald McFadden has had enough of it. Recently, a report by VGC said that McFadden has launched a lawsuit against Microsoft. The outlet said the following.
Drifting issues have been experienced by a large volume of Xbox owners across various controller models, plaintiff Donald McFadden claims in court documents seen by VGC. The lawsuit was filed by McFadden on April 28 in the U.S. District Court for the Western District of Washington. Customers experiencing problems after their 90-day warranty expires are paying to repair a known fault, it alleges.
It's unclear if this case will become a huge trial, I'm guessing it'll be settled out of court, but it's still interesting to know what it may be a major issue. Have you experienced thumbstick drift? Let us know.
It's worth pointing out that it's unknown if issues are widespread. At the end of the day, the proof of these allegedly widespread issues will be what determines if the case has any merit and goes forward.
