    I don't understand the point of the pro controller. The joycon holder thing works just fine and it comes with the system.

    I feel the same way as you. I'm just fine with the joycon holder thing that comes with the system but what can you do.

    My hubby prefers the old style directional buttons so I think he would prefer this to the joycon's.

    I myself prefer a traditional controller, not two sliders.... Besides $60 isn't a bad drop.

    True. I may get this for my hubby. He has a Street Fighter game on the Switch and maybe he'd play it more if I got this controller.

    I was disappointed to discover that the U's pro controller wouldn't natively work with the switch. (I have the U Pro controller already and I tried it on the switch.)

    But I did find a solution... For anyone interested there's a device made by Mayflash that allows you to use pretty much any controller on the switch. (Even Sony's DS3/DS4 or Microsoft's controllers.) It's not too expensive either... Like $20. Which is really a good idea since you can buy 3 of them for the same price as a Switch pro controller, connect them to the switch (when docked) and have 3 controllers for the price of 1. Since most of us here likely have other consoles and thusly other controllers already.

    Link to Mayflash's adapter:

    I feel $60 is somewhat expensive for a controller when you can get a PS4, Xbox One, or PC controller for $40 to $50 on Amazon or eBay.

    Froggy, offhand you live in Canada right?

    You'd be hard pressed to get a PS4 controller for under $60... Even before taxes an official controller is running at $74. Last I checked the normal going rate for controllers on Amazon was like $73 (maybe if you're lucky and catch it on sale you could get one for 65 before tax.)

    It's possible you could get a third party one for cheaper... But I wouldn't recommend getting one because it's cheaper now but you'll likely be replacing it a lot sooner. Might as well spend the extra money and get a quality controller that's way less likely to crap out on you any time soon. Especially if you have siblings or a significant other that plays a lot. (Plus it says you care more if they have a decent controller.)
