Nintendo is one of the best companies that exist today. They replaced my DS out of warranty when it got a broken screen. And this fark nugget had nothing better to do with his life then try to sabotage their business?

They are really well run. I just wish they could figure out the JoyCon drift issue. I've got it happening on one controller now, and it makes some games unplayable.

One dump truck?  $10 million is 1 billion pennies.  A penny weighs 2.5 grams, so we have 2.5 billion grams or 2.5 million kg.

A typical dump truck can carry 28000 lbs (12,700 kg) of payload.

You're gonna need 197 dump trucks to carry all those pennies.

Who said anything about pennies.  Who knows what a Mushroom Kingdom coin converts to in dollars?

They're gold coins in the Mario games. Even assuming 1 ounce coins, that's ~1.8k/coin at current rates. That's 5555 coins. Probably won't fit in your car, but yeah, a dumptruck would do it easily.

I suppose, but nothing says "fark you" like paying a debt with a couple hundred dump trucks worth of pennies.

I'm just amazed that Nintendo (of America) has a CEO named Bowser, and they're suing a completely unrelated hacker who is alsonamed Bowser.

I believe this is free of charge for drift repair.

I switched over to a pro controller anyway, so I've been too lazy/busy to send mine in for repair.

I much prefer the Pro controller when I'm playing docked, but portable there's not much choice. I considered sending it in for repair, but I modded it when I got it and swapped the body of the JoyCon out for one with a D-Pad. So odds are, it wouldn't get fixed, anyway. I'll probably just put up with it for now and eventually buy a replacement.
