Man, this looks cool.
The Pro Controller also looks really sweet, shame it's such a badly made controller.

Hmmmm, I bought a Splatoon variant of the Pro controller and its been fantastic. Comfortable to use and amazing battery life, I don't feel like I've heard much negativity about the pro controllers, unlike the joycons.

I don't doubt that you didn't notice the issues with the controller. The vast majority of people don't even know what makes a good controller. But I can tell you that the Switch Pro has many issues, the main ones being the surprisingly bad sticks, that not only have terrible accuracy, range and circularity but are also cheaply made and prone to degradation. And the badly designed d-pad with its tendency to fail diagonals and the worse implementation Nintendo ever made short of the joy-cons "d-pad".

Ahh, I guess you know best Vits, I have only been using controllers since 1982 when I had my Atari 2600 so I don't have as much experience or expertise as you.

I will say that I haven't used the Dpad much but the 100+ hours I used the controller for in my recent replay of Zelda BotW was absolutely great and the controller performed perfectly.

Pro controller is quite nice. And the battery lasts forever it seems.


I wish Nintendo would release official joycons like this:
I just got mine back and they are amazing I love the d-pad, never liked the 4 button's on the left joycon.

Yeah, nah looking at the NZ price. I rather spend an extra $100 for a ps5.

I really like the look of the docking station, but I am less keen on the joycons. Overall though, a really nice looking variant.
