What a bullshit website, I give up. My email I used to use there is now invalid and when I tried to make an account it said my emails didn't match which is complete bs.

What's the status of these controllers? I remember there were some connectivity issues in the past. Has Nintendo addressed and corrected that? Also, is it possible to use the pro controller at all times, or do some games require the use of joycons? Thanks in advance.

Motion control heavy games may require joy cons but u can play all the major titles with a pro controller. There remains a slight connectivity issue with my right Joy con. Button presses aren't always relayed when I'm using it without the grip or the single slide in piece. That's not how it's intended to be held however, and as soon as I insert one of the plastic peripherals the problem goes away.

There were connectivity issues on the left joycon. Nintendo did address it with a new board revision for newly made left joycons, and they fixed existing users' left joycons by adding some conductive foam material to a spot on the board that basically acts as a farady cage to prevent interference which was causing the initial issue.

Most games allow a variety of controller options, but there are some that require the joycons in some fashion.

I would like to know this as well. Supposedly they fixed it on the newer joycons. Not sure if this is old stock or not.

Not sure about newer stock but old ones are awful. Left joy con makes my switch unplayable as a standard console and Nintendo won't fix it, instead tells me to turn off every other device including my speaker system and play sound directly through the tv

I have had the switch for 2 weeks and was having issues with both L and R joycon controllers playing the game without me pressing the buttons. I watched a video that just had me disconnt the controllers from the console and then reconnect them, doing it once got rid of 99% of my problems.

They used to be buy.com. I've bought a good amount of stuff, never had any issues. Looks like these are third party sellers though. I'm using Paypal and pp is good about siding with the buyer in terms of disputes.

I ordered one yesterday and its already in shipping process , the seller is California based so it should take under a week to get to my house.
Bought many times from this site and its LEGIT but always use paypal just in case issues arrive
