Ok, so I think from this point on I need to limit myself to these forums for information.

I just spent about 10 minutes in the comments section of an IGN article on the Switch.

Dear God never again.

@skywake @JaxonH I think both links are equally valid. It's just YouTube itself is broken (on my browser anyway, seems to be working on my smartphone app).

I went there a couple times too. It was quite an experience.

IGN... a wretched hive of scum and villainy.

So keep your friends close and your Joy-Cons closer?

Love all, trust a few, do harm to none.

I think it is funny how we had an conversation about how bad it was it didn't have 4k and now people are complaining about it not being able to transmit the signal further than 10". Or am I the only one that haven't bought an 80" 4k tv?

Yes. Yes you are. Go immediately to PC World and prostrate yourself infront of the largest 4K HDR set they have begging for forgiveness.

Sounds to me like as long as your couch is not tremendously far from the TV, you'll be fine. And again as others have said, it also seems to be dependent on the environment too; that is it seems to have more problems in the office than it does at home. The fact that Andre could only get the problem to replicate itself at home when he had the joycon fully covered/behind his back seems to suggest to me that this might be getting a little blown out of proportion as an issue for the average consumer.

Anyway, I hope Nintendo put out an official word soon saying they are working on improving connectivity and will be a day one patch. As others have said, it seems likely the fix will be increasing bluetooth strength in sacrifice for some joycon battery life (and who really needs 20 hours of joycon life anyway?)

For decades, 'The Legend of Zelda' series has been recognized as a trailblazer in game design, influencing countless titles and developers.

@joeynator3000 nibelsnarfing sounds way worse than my original word which wasn't even a swearword...

So it seems it is a distance/obstruction problem. My seat is maybe 2m far from TV. No obstruction in between. I don't think i'm going to have an issue. And as i said in the Controllers thread: it's just a matter of paying attention. And by the way it seems Nintendo is already taking care of it. So i can safely say that i'm perfectly calm. I don't think it's going to be an issue at all, Nintendo always delivered on this kind of things

All major new games consoles have teething problems. When they opened Disneyland in 1956, nothing worked!

I don't think 3m is a particularly huge distance to sit away from a TV. People don't always sit the optimal distance away from their screens. Especially when playing games that may involve more than one player and may have motion controls.

That said, I'm pretty sure this will be resolved in the day 1 patch.

@Maxz You know it's sad when you posted that 7 hours ago and YouTube is still broken... Fix that &£*8!

My excitement level for Nintendo Switch has broke the roof now. However, I'm not getting it day 1. Maybe I'll get it late March.

Unprecedented advertising in the UK now. I had E4 and Channel 4 on last night and saw two different Switch ads. Then this morning, I put a Postman Pat on my phone for my kid, using Youtube, and bam! another Switch ad before Pat could get busy!

I've just held an Ignored Users amnesty on my account. 20+ users are back in the game with an extra life - make it count :)

10 feet is common. And as long as that is the norm, most people won't see he difference between 1080p and 4k, except for maybe better colours.

And the view also needed to be obstructed btw, 10 feet was OK otherwise.

I don't really get why people would want their switch placed near the TV when you can have it right next to you on a small table, windowsill, etc. I know I'll have it right next to me so that I can easily play it off-tv without having to go all the way to my TV to pick it up. I do the same with my Gamepad for the Wii U.
