[Review] Nintendo Pro Controller Switch

In this article I talk about a Nintendo Pro Controller Switch, I acquired for use with my Nintendo Switch, which I have already spoken here in Skooter Blog.

Motivation

The Nintendo Switch comes with a pair of controllers Joy-Con, which work in various ways: attached to the console; both released, one in each hand; loose and divided between two players; or attached to the grip forming the control-puppy.

As I prefer to play on TV, most of the time I use the Joy-Con coupled to grip. It's not uncomfortable, but it's not as comfortable as a Dualshock 4, for example. The Nintendo Pro Controller Switch is a better option than the Joy-Con on grip, with more comfort, more autonomy and more easy to recharge.

Unfortunately, the price of the Nintendo Pro Controller Switch is high, even in the first world where Nintendo is officially, costing in the range of $ 70,00, more expensive than the Dualshock 4. In Brazil the tax situation is even worse, the cost is more than twice that in stores more known.

The Purchase

The lowest price I found for the Nintendo Pro Controller Switch foi R $ 299,99. I sold my Bag for Playstation VR (PSVR) and accessories, Since I didn't need it anymore with the sale of Playstation VR and completed the value to acquire the Nintendo controller.

Bought with a saleswoman whose ad title was “Nintendo Switch Control Pro Controller Original Sealed”.

Unboxing

Unlike the seller of Nintendo Switch, the seller of the Nintendo Pro Controller Switch was honest, the product was actually sealed as the announcement. Check out the photos and the video of the unboxing:

The version that got apparently is American, with English text, French and Spanish. Must meet United States, Canada and Mexico, We are official markets.

The Nintendo Pro Controller Switch comes with a USB cable, that seems to be thick and well built. Take the Nintendo brand, as well as the HDMi cable from the Nintendo Switch. Is made in the Philippines.

The plastic of the Nintendo Pro Controller Switch is black translucent, What makes very nice. I even thought about putting a cover on it, but she certainly hide this beauty.

He has all the buttons present in Joy-Con controls, with the advantage of bigger buttons and with a more anatomical positioning and a D-Pad for real.

Tests

I connected the Nintendo Pro Controller Switch the base of the Nintendo Switch using the USB cable, to pair it and load your battery. The cable is only needed for recharging, because it is wireless connectivity, via Bluetooth.

According to the packaging, a load of Nintendo Pro Controller Switch is enough for approximately 40 hours of gameplay. How to play little, mine is still on first load.

As well as the Joy-Con, He also has a vibrating motor (Rumble) providing tactile feedback. The motion sensors (accelerometer and gyroscope) are also present, as well as the NFC for the use of sensor amiibos.

Final Considerations

Quite liked the Nintendo Pro Controller Switch. Today I just play with him. Joy-Con controllers were solely to play portable mode. Maybe I will use them in the grip as the second control to play the Mario Kart 8 Deluxe (If one day he arrives) in the two player mode, or other games I still have. But for single player on TV the Nintendo Pro Controller Switch is my first choice.
