    I have huge hands, and I really want to be able to use them (Yes theres a controller but still.....).


    I'm serious. Any ideas on the dimensions? It looks much smaller than a WiiMote.

    Also, button Layout, Especially triggers. Are there 2 on each (L and ZL, R and ZR) or just 1 (L and R)?

    So, Yeah What do you think?

    I heard they were about the size of an NES controller. I have no clue what the buttons will look like on it though. Wasn't there a thread about Nintendo patenting the Switch controllers a long time ago though? You could check that to see the entire controller.

    Those WiiMotes look great.

    I wonder when they're going to release a rev up version that has nunchuks JoyConsPlus?

    Keep in mind they shown an actual sized controller that works just like the JoysCon.

    Just need a proper d-pad. Speaking of which the pro controller's d-pad seems to be inferior to Nintendo d-pad.

    They could make it a bit wider, but that isn't a deal breaker. I just hope for motion controls.

    I'm personally indifferent, but I also have small Asian hands sooo its not problem for me. The pro controller maybe your only option. They also could release grips or something to make it easier to use for some.

    I don't like the idea of using one small portion, but the controller as a whole is cool.

    They are probably small, but you can use the new pro controller like those guys playing splatoon did.

    Of course they're small. Check the reveal video again, guys: those "joy-cons"* are the left and right side of a normal controller, so for size you can probably just measure up the area the size of the controls of the wiiu.




    *nintendo apparently can't avoid going for terrible names :unsure:

    IKR? Joy-Con sounds like the worst convention in the history of humans, not a controller

    They seem pretty bad. Not comfortable, not innovative. Just some controllers. Only thing they got going for them is the disconnecting and use each one for multiplayer. But the multiplayer thing i don't see being used often. And the disconnecting thing is only necessary because of how big the thing is.

    They look tiny and uncomfortable, but then again the GBA SP controls were tiny and uncomfortable, and the DS Lite controls were tiny and uncomfortable, but I got used to them (after much hand cramping).
