You can cough up $70 a piece for Nintendo’s official Pro controllers, or you can pick up some DinoFire Wireless Pro Controllers for Nintendo Switch while they’re on sale on Amazon at a big discount!
※ ※NOTICE – The switch game controller DOESN’T support Amiibo function, and doesn’t turn the Switch on from sleep mode. ESYWEN provides 3-Year warranty and life-time technical support; Any problems, don’t hesitate to contact us 😂
So...how does that translate to better controller except for the price? Oh I see. Advertisement.
Also, battery life?
I'll just stick with first party controllers most third party have a crappy build quality and half the time they don't work or there is input lag. I would rather talk to Nintendo who actually do something then fight with a company who will probably make you play ring around the rosie on the phone at the call center.
I agree 100%
"There’s nothing the $70 Switch Pro Controller can do that can’t be done by this $26 alternative" Except provide amiibo support and turn on the system apparently
I mean it could be a possible alternative given its attractive price. But the build quality could be suspect and I doubt the rumble is to the same level as the 1st party Pro controller.
Tbh the only 3rd party alternative controller worth checking out is the 8Bitdo SN30 Pro+ series (and the PowerA wireless GCN controller for Smash).
I bought my Switch last week, and bought the Pro controller with it. I only use the console docked, and really like the quality of the controller. What I like most is it is laid out like the Xbox controller😎
Its a great controller, a bit costy and no analog triggers, but other then that its great.
To be fair, almost everything Nintendo is costly. Premium price for premium brand😎
Build quality is always an issue. Analog stick drifting will occur sooner, buttons get "sticky" (as in they don't pop up instantaneously even if its brand new), if the batteries are built-in, then they are of a lower quality that dies out within a couple of years. I have the official pro controller, its damn good. I'd rather pay more and get quality, than pay less, but have to buy 3 knock-offs that will last me what a single official controller would last me.
