Update (Tue 24th Sep, 2019 08:45 BST): And we've got more cases coming to light now:


Original Story (Mon 23rd Sep, 2019 19:45 BST): Ever since the Switch Lite launched, one big question mark has loomed over it: will its analogue sticks suffer from the same drift issues that have plagued the original model's Joy-Con controllers?

Despite fresh reports that the analogue stick inside the Switch Lite differs in terms of design, we've had our first report of a unit exhibiting drift.

While we can't be 100 percent sure this means the console is drift-prone (this could potentially be a different fault, and one case doesn't mean all units are necessarily at risk), it's not the most encouraging sign - especially when you consider that the system has only been available for a matter of days.

As you can see from the footage, the issue appears to be with the right-hand stick. The owner lightly touches the stick but input continues to be detected even after they lift their finger away.

What do you make of this footage? Let us know with a comment below.
