Why all game consoles have joystick on the left side?

I was always wondering, why all video game consoles I've seen (XBox,
Nintendo, Gameboy, ...) have a control for the left-right-up-down
navigation on the left side? Navigation requires bigger precision and
speed so because most people are right-handed they have to do it with
a non-dominant (left) hand, which is naturally less precise and
Ist ist just an occasional solution, which became a standart or there
are some other human factor issues behind it, which I'm not aware of?
