France: Nintendo Switch named most fragile product of 2019 due to Joy-Cons

Nintendo has featured in a list of the worst companies of the year in France. The magazine 60 millions de consommateurs lists companies which consumers have had issues with. They include SNCF, which is the French national railway company, and FNAC, the retail chain. Nintendo has made an appearance regarding its Joy-Cons for the Nintendo Switch.
