If only this controller had a headphone jack, analog triggers, and symmetrical analog sticks

offsetting ones have been effective ever since the original Xbox controller. Even the Gamecube controller had offset ones if you think about it.

Personally I love the feel of this controller in my hands.. very nice.

as far as pricing goes, i do not think it is worth it.
all nintendo accessories are ridiculously expensive, none of them is worth the price in my eyes.
i mean it is....a controller.

glad devs do not adopt same logic about their games (for the most part). imagine TLoU 2 costing 100$, just because it is good? Doesn't make sense.
things should be priced for what they are. a game that took 1 year to develop costs the same as one that took more.

@bouzebbal - the controller lasts for like 40 hours. My dual shock would be lucky to get 10. This thing has an NFC reader inside, HD rumble. It's not like any other controller out there, so the fact that it's a few bucks more, considering all the tech inside, is actually pretty reasonable.

I don't have a problem with the offset analog sticks but I agree about the headphone jack and triggers. The PS4 and Xbone controllers have spoiled me with the headphone feature.

It honestly is worth the price, at least it is to me. I get why people are skeptical. I get why people are upset over the price. The only reason I bought it was because it's sold out everywhere, and I wanted to have it for Splatoon.

I didn't think it was going to be worth the asking price. But it really is. The controller surprised me. It's just very comfortable, it's perfectly contoured for your hands. And it feels like a really premium, well-built controller. Giant face buttons, great sticks, phenomenal battery life, and tactile triggers.

If you're skeptical, I totally understand. Don't buy it. But if you know someone who has it, or if it's on display at your local game shop, just try to hold the controller and see what you think. Then you can decide for yourself.

Analogue triggers and headphone port are desperately needed, I'd have both of them over the HD rumble, Nintendo trying to force that down our throats, while not adopting other standards.

Why has this got a disagree...Nintendo fanboys are idiots..

You're telling me you don't want features? You're telling me you don't want a headphone jack for Splatoon 2?
You're telling me you don't want analogue triggers for Super Mario Sunshine?

the triggers i dont really mind that much that they are not analog, the headphone jack is a pretty dumb omission yeah

i never (well, okay, once,.. saw, laughed, sold it) used a bluetooth controller with my ipad. (and there are enough zelda clones out there for the pad). why would i go and buy a switch to do the same uncomfy thing with an overpriced dedicated games-only-machine? has anyone ever tried remote play with the vita? technically it works very well, you just can't decipher a damn thing on that tiny screen. so i highly doubt this is a different experience than when you switch vom starionary to mobile mode.

Neonridr36d ago

The screen is just over an inch bigger though. Can make quite the difference. But depends on what sort of game you are playing. I have no issues playing Zelda in handheld mode. So your mileage will vary I guess.

70.00 is way too much for this controller! Especially when you consider that you can get a Dualshock 4 controller for 45.99 and has features such as analogue triggers, a speaker, glide pad, and headphone jack.
