I've been hesitant about 8bitdo in the past since I remember their earlier models having issues, but seems they've gotten better over the years, so I grabbed one since I've been needing a BT controller for my tablet and wouldn't mind having an extra one for my Switch as well.



This one looks a bit smaller, not sure how it will feel since it essentially looks like a SNES controller with two extra shoulder buttons and analog sticks slapped onto it.

Yes, they have an entire line of controllers that mimic the style of SNES controllers (so, no grips), and some of which are even smaller. However, those are missing many features the Pro+ and Pro2 have. Check them out on Amazon or 8bitdo's website.

Unfortunately, no. Apple TV is super picky—Steel Series Nimbus, and I believe Xbox and PlayStation controllers are the only ones it will allow to connect.

Picked up one of these for my og Xbox. I really like it. Plus, with the software, you can remap all the buttons. Really great Bluetooth controller for $45. Totally worth it.

Just watched a review for this last night! It Came from a Box calls it comparable to the Nintendo Switch Pro Controller.

This vs picking up an XBOX controller for general PC gaming? I already have a Switch Pro controller, so it would be a complement to that.

The Sn30 Pro+ is also currently on a Lightning deal for $40 (Black or G Classic):
https://www.amazon.com/8Bitdo-Sn3...01ND166P6/

The Pro 2 is an updated model with a few more features. Trying to decide if those are worth an extra $5 to me, haha. I currently have one Pro+ and it's great. Only complaint I have is sometimes it does not want to reconnect to my Switch. Not sure what the issue is.

Also a small note, I have the Black color and while I like the look, the button labels are difficult to see. Not a problem if you know the buttons. Sometimes I forget and I can't just glance at it to be reminded 😆

That's my main gripe as well for the black one. I picked up the switch pro at Walmart for $49 otherwise i might pull the trigger on this.

Same here, it won't connect and then after spamming buttons for a minute, the light stops blinking and it finally connects.

Also how long have you used your controller? I used it heavily for an entire year then the left joystick started drifting upward which made it unusable for me.

Thanks to those above. Ordered, but cancelled after that feedback (for the pro+). Not worth the hassles and would rather buy the switch pro for a couple bucks extra

Hmm, maybe button mashing is the trick. I got it to connect last night and I think I pushed some buttons right before it succeeded in connecting.

I have not used it that much. Got it in January, but do not get to play that much.

I had a Pro+ I used with my switch but got frustrated as it would often lose the ability to sync, nevermind trying to turn on the switch. I ended up buying a regular Nintendo controller instead. This has a switch that lets you put it into a mode to sync to a switch vs android device vs. etc.

I think Ill give the pro 2 a chance with it but I hope it ends up better than that pro+ was
