    1. They where $50 individual and $80 as a pair. Nobody bought them individually, so they where basically always $40 each. This really isn’t a price decrease.

      1. The offering of individual controllers is meant for people who had broken one of their joycons.

  1. Yup Nintendo’s fix to the design flaw they created on their controllers. Tons of people will purchase due to joycon drift they refuse to acknowledge.

  2. I think they’ll be releasing a new version of the joy-con with the Pro model. And then discontinue these old ones. They are gonna want to squash the drift issue and pretend it never happened.

  3. My Joy-Cons have been drifting for quite some time and I never really cared enough to replace them due to the ridiculous prices.

    This is cool and all, but who’s to say it won’t drift again? What happens next? I give you another $40? Come on.

        1. Yes but the more people force them to repair it for free, the more they’re dedicated to fix the issue. Remember they claimed in court that it’s not a big deal for the players.

  4. If Apple can get away with their basic accessories prices @ $100+, I think this joy comes price is justifiable.

    Yes Iā€™d prefer it to be around $30 per joy con and $50 bundled but it seems that the HD Rumble tech has a high production cost.

    1. I haven’t heard much of Apple’s products crapping out in under a year compared to people complaining about Joy Con drift. Not saying problems with Apple accessories don’t exist, but coverage has been quiet.
