A couple of months ago, Nintendo officially announced the Nintendo Switch Lite. This is a cheaper and more portable version of the Switch, although for the most part it is still very much a Switch at its core. Unfortunately, it seems to have inherited some of the Switch’s problems as well.
In case you didn’t know, Switch owners have been reporting that they are experiencing “drift” issues with their Joy-Cons. What this means is that even when the player isn’t touching the control, the console will read it as the controls are moving which can interfere with gameplay. Now it seems that according to some user reports, the Switch Lite is experiencing similar issues as well.
Japan's Defense Minister Takeshi Iwaya says the two short-range ballistic missiles launched by North Korea on Saturday were a new type of weapon.
Iwaya told reporters on Tuesday that his ministry arrived at the judgment after comparing the launches to other missiles and projectiles North Korea has fired in the past.
However, it seems that those reports might not be 100% correct. In a statement released to The Verge, a Nintendo spokesperson was quoted as saying, “We do not have a Nintendo Switch exchange program. We always want players to enjoy their Nintendo Switch systems, and if anything ever gets in the way of that, we encourage them to visit http://support.nintendo.com for support, or to contact our consumer support team.”
For those who are unfamiliar, the reports of the exchange program suggested that gamers who purchased a new Nintendo Switch before a certain date were eligible to get an exchange for the newer model if they were willing to foot the bill and send their consoles back to the company. It sounded like a good idea, but unfortunately, it seems that it might not have been true.
Basically, there seems to be something wrong with the Joy-Cons in which even if the user is not touching the joystickers, the console will register it as moving. This was confirmed in a report by Kotaku’s Gita Jackson who wrote, “When I was in the combat screen, where the stick on the right Joy-Con controls the overhead angle of the camera, the camera angle would slowly drift until it was directly overhead.”
Jackson is not alone in experiencing this issue as other Kotaku staff members have similarly confirmed the issue themselves, along with many other gamers in a post on Reddit that got over 25,000 upvotes. While wear and tear seems to be the norm when it comes to hardware, some gamers claim to have only owned the console for a few months before the problems began to show.
Japan's Best Car magazine has what appears to be a whopper of a rumor. The mag said it scooped Mazda's development of a straight-six engine that Mazda only revealed in March, the carmaker having buried the information in a financial statement. By way of Lexus Enthusiast and according to Google translate, Best Car writes that as it was speaking to a Toyota source on an unrelated matter, the magazine found out that Mazda's work on the straight-six was predicated on the engine's use in Toyota Group vehicles, which includes Lexus.
Here's the account of how the engine and Mazda's coming front-engined rear-drive platform, dubbed "Large Architecture," will make their way to Toyota City:
While mirrorless cameras are all the rage these days, we understand that there might be some photographers who still prefer the heft, size, and features of a DSLR. If you’re looking for a new DSLR and want something less expensive than a professional-grade camera but want something better than an entry-level device, then Canon might have something for you.
According to a report from Canon Rumors, they have managed to get their hands on the alleged specs of the upcoming Canon EOS 90D. This is the successor to the EOS 80D which was launched back in 2016, which means that now is as good a time as any for Canon to introduce a new camera to its mid-range lineup.
