    I dont think the IR camera on the joy-con counts as a remote if anyone wants to clarify that

    But on the console itself, if you look closely on the bottom left of the screen there is a dark circle in the screen. Thats a camera right?

    If someone can save me the trouble of making another topic I also want to ask what does the Switch pro controller have the Wii U pro controller doesnt.

    So far all I got is

    - better battery life
    - gyro sensors
    - NFC reader in the right analog stick (or was it the left?)
    - Capture button
    - missing power button

    Am I missing anything?

    I hope you understand that I was saying the SWITCH PRO CONTROLLER is missing the power button and has the better battery life. How could the Wii U pro controller have better than the Switch unless your saying they are equal.

    Wii U Pro has better battery life because it doesn't have to deal with NFC and gyro controls

    And HD Rumble

    That doesnt make sense still. Those features aren't constantly in use so I'm not convinced the battery life is any worse for including them.

    I'll tell you if my SPC actually ever runs out of battery so we can finally compare them.

    To be fair, the Switch would have had a shitty camera anyways.

    I mean, it's fair not to include a camera. That's a useless hardware feature for gaming consoles.

    Why would you assume that? Naturally as the years pass so would advancement in tech. However if game devs arent going to use them for anything than maybe its for the best to not have them at all.

    The only time I ever had cameras used on the Wii U was for that F-Zero game in Nintendo Land. Never used the cameras ever again.

    Because it would have. They would have slapped on a cheap camera for cheap gimmicks, then forgotten about it in week. Like every single camera they added in the past.

    If they had any reason to not include it, it would be the 3ds. Prevents devs from having qr code scanning, which was used multiple times for primary entry points on the 3ds.
