I have a pro controller but I love my Xbox one controller. That flash drive thing seems like a good buy

I was one of these people complaning about th D-Pad. I Immediately bought a pro controller. Well after one year it turns out D pad on the pro controller is not as accurate as the switch 4 buttons for games like sonic mania or wonderboy. I know people love Dpads but apart from fighting games, the 4 buttons are just more accurate that's all.

addendum on the Mayfly magic-ns, you can also use wired controllers like a wired xbox 360 controller(or wireless if you already have the PC dongle). You can also use it to connect your joycons to your PC if you want to use those.

Opinion, my must have for the switch is either the comfort grip w joycons or a gamecube controller using the adapter. I had a pro cont. and sold it within a week hated the weight. Which is weird cause I loved the xbox 360 controllers which are very similiar.

Loud controller is good. Love hearing those big triggers lol.
SteelBasilisk (24 days ago)
I know I'm late to the party, but I need a controller that is wireless with motion controls and rumble. I can't afford a pro- controller. What is the next best, as I don't have a PS$ or XBOX controller (or system)?

Check nexilux. Www.nexilux.com Very easy to get samples if you are legitimate reviewer such as yourself.

I am having a little trouble picking controllers. I don't know to get the splatoon colored joycons, a pro controller, or three wired controllers. I am need more controllers for multiplayer

Where did you get your Switch dock Splatoon cover?! I would really like one too! Subscribed and liked

Why does having to update the firmware suck? You should do that anyway.

Am I the only one who loves the Grip? I have small hands, and it feels great. Of course, the Pro Controller is the best, but the Grip is great for me.

I have the wired variation of the one you only described but didn't name from 3:48. I believe it's called the SWH Wired Pro Controller yet googling that name is tricky. I have done everything to connect it to my Switch but the LED still spun in circles for hours.

That zelda power a controller is 19.19 now follow link in description. Thanks man
4:43 it looks exactly like the xbox one controller
Also the snes one this basically the Wii classic controller
The Bluetooth one is a Xbox one in disguise
The hori pads are always best ever since the n64

dont mean to sound like an asshole, but what about a gamecube controller? Ive been using mine and they work fine with the adapter for smash.

I bought the "Zelda-themed" controller. I use a little "portable dock" from Rocketek & I can use the controller & charge the system at the same time in portable mode! I love that setup! I NEVER use my Switch in Docked mode. Just get a stand & you're all set! Anyway, the Zelda controller works great! no problems! I'm sure you can get it on sale during the year & save a few bucks too!
xShadows (1 month ago)
Does anyone know if there is a Pro Switch Zelda Theme WIRELESS Controller? I like the one in this video however it Not having Rumble, Motion Control, and NFC doesn’t sell me on the controller(And I hate wired). I also wouldn’t want to get a Pro Controller and put stickers all over it. Do they make Custom Pro Controllers? Any advice is helpful. Thanks

Great video. Had all of the controllers I was considering and got straight to the point with some humor mixed in. Subscribed! :)
LazySharu (1 month ago)
are you able to connect more than one controller with the adapter?
junascarlo (1 month ago)
The dpad on the Hori is okay. It's cheap, it's functional and very durable. This is the best one to have if you have kids or younger siblings using the console at home.
Konner (1 month ago)
I consider that the pro controller is not a fun to use. It doesn't feel like it fits well in my hands. I love to joycons way more. However I respect your opinion.
Just for everyone here the adapter does support rumble and motion control for the Xbox one s controller if you update it.

The line between the grips and the actual pro controller feel like they are glued together lmao, dosen’t matter tho

I'd just buy the pro controller.

I am pretty excited, got the Switch on Ebay brand new with a promo for $240, went to BestBuy and price-matched Walmart to get Odyssey for $48, the pro controller for $60, and price matched Target to get BOTW for $45. So for about $430 I got the Switch, Pro Controller, 2 games, a glass screen protector, and a 128GB Micro SD. Not a bad deal at all.

Can you use the Bluetooth thing for Xbox One controllers with the USB entrance at the back of the switch?
Umbra DLM (1 month ago)
meh, switch pro controller is too expansive for what it offers and I hate the joy cons... for me nothing can beat a KB + M and xbox controller for certain games.

That Mayflower sounds cool

04:32 the controller feels good because its the same desing as an xbox one controller with cheap plastic shell, you can replace it with an xbox one shell

Super great video. I've had my Pro Controller since day one, but I really don't like the D-Pad. These are some great alternatives. Also, you look like a more cheerful Gilfoyle, so that's a thing you can put on your resume.
superduperdrew12345 (2 months ago)
The 8bitdo is nice but doesn't have very good hand room because it lacks the grips of most modern controllers. Your ring finger and pinky are just left hanging. The motion works well enough to play splatoon but the rumble is pretty bad unless you flash a new firmware and even then it isn't great. The buttons feel nice but are a bit too spaced out. Probably no big deal if you're used to the SNES controller though. I recommend the famicom colored one, it looks nicer.
I bought a Hori Pad... I like it a lot... but you're right... the d-pad is kinda crap. You sold me on the Power A though.

That one controller was just straight up a One controller haha but I’m buying that mayflash adapter! It would be nice to use my PS4 controller. I don’t own a pro controller and I bought a switch day one. I just use it in portable mode most of the time but my girlfriend and I play Mario Kart 8 docked and hate using the joy cons as our room is big and the cables from the power a cables were just too short

The SN30 / SF30 Pro are awesome controllers, one of my favorite in fact, but their dpads are kind of meh, mushy and imprecise like the original SNES controllers. I always accidentally hit diagonals without meaning to.

that second controller was exactly the xbox one controller just look at it the only thing different the letter button layout

Question, does the vanilla Xbone controller work with the Mayflower adapter?
Finn (2 months ago)
Thank you dude. Such a concise and well-put together video, telling me all the good shit I need to know. You have yourself a new subscriber and I've decided that why not fork out an extra tenner on the real pro-controller deal? Cheers

What about the gamecube controller? If you have a smash gamecube adapter you can use a gcn controller and that's my favourite controller ever so yeah

A bad product is the powerA wired controller (Walmart was selling these for $17 a piece on Thanksgiving). Works fine for about a month then the left stick stops working. This has happened to me twice – the first one I bought and the second one that I had to exchange it for.

I hate the analog sticks on the pro controller I drop the controller a few times or use it for too long and they feel like there is dirt gunking up the sticks
Hayato1105 (2 months ago)
I have been reluctant to buy that pro controller, I tried a friend's pro controller for a while, but find it way too expensive; good quality and all but nothing out of this world for that price. <pssstt. The generic one is awesome, I have one, money well spent at 22$. That and the 8bitdo (love this one for its size and I find it very comfortable) at 30$ were awesome buys for me. No problemas what so ever.

It's 8bit DOO because there's an accessory made by the brand that says just that.

The amazon one is clearly just a repurposed 3rd party xbox one controller; the shell, sticks and triggers are a dead giveaway.

Ordered adapter! 👍🏻 Great vídeo, thanks for the heads up and saving me some 💴 on buying a “Switch Pro Controller”. I have both Xbox/PS4 consoles with multiple wireless remotes.. no need to buy anymore 🤦‍♂️, but the adapter would be the PERFECT solution! Thanks again.

Wow, the loser insults the various companies because they wouldn't send him a free controller. What an ass! Why would they? You're a nobody. You only have 100k subs. That's nothing. Companies will only send review products to big YouTubers that actually have a lot of subs. At least 500k subs. DSP has more subs then you. That should tell you something. So, stop begging for free products and get a job so you can buy your own shit. Wow, are you a loser. Lol.
