Don’t Buy the Nintendo Switch Pro Controller

Nintendo Switch

Until recently, if you were looking for a wireless Nintendo Switch “Pro” controller, your only option was the Nintendo branded Pro Controller. I love Nintendo, but their accessories are overpriced – $70 for a controller?? Yeah… not happening Nintendo. You could get the Nintendo Licensed wired controller for much cheaper if you are into that sort of thing, I suppose. I am not that hardcore of a gamer that I need or want a wired controller, plus they have no motion controls or rumble. To my surprise, within the past few weeks 3rd party accessory makers began releasing wireless controllers that don’t need a separate bluetooth dongle and connect directly to the Switch, at less than half the price of the official Nintendo Switch Pro Controller. Just like the official one, these controllers support motion control, screenshots as well as rumble.
