    The controller looks like something I would probably get at half that price.
    Regarding the game, I am still not convinced. Actually, I didn't really like what I saw though I wanted to.
    I am also not interested in Borderlands 3. Meh for both games.

    No it's not. People do not pirate software because they feel businesses are unethical. What a stupid insinuation. People pirate the game because they want the game and don't want to pay the money. You're so blind to your own corrupted grandstanding. It's pathetic.

    You only validate my point about diverting the attention to the technicalities of piracy away from the awareness of "bad practice"

    Now you're just misinterpreting what I'm saying on purpose. I never claimed that was the reason the majority of people engage in piracy, I only suggested piracy as an alternative to buying games from unethical companies, and that's assuming people feel the need to play them at all.

    I guess you've missed the entire EGS controversy then, or are being intentionally dense. It's not all about the money. In any case, this conversation is going nowhere fast and at this point you're just trying to drag it into the mud. I'm not going to continue to engage in pedantic hair splitting, so good day to you.

    Looks nice but i'll never trust third party controllers. They're priced in a way that means they could very well be quality, but who knows. Glad they at least didn't include any of the gimmicky crap the joycons have to lower the price.


    His motives are to play a game for free. His reason is an excuse. Pretty simple.

    If that was my reasoning, I'd say so. It's not like this is a site that shuns piracy, regardless of reasoning. For Christ sake, I'm probably one of the very few people here with an unhacked release day Switch. My PS4 is also legit, and I've bought over 1000 games on Steam.

    1. Actually wireless joycons are cool, but what is the point for this particular model. Look how big these are, how were you planning on holding them one-handed in split mode? You want a grip just for these things instead of using a proper controller?

    2. Its should be about the same battery drain with normal joycons, they have to be recharged too as you are using them handheld. I would guess these won't have rumble for power transfer concerns alone though.

    3. The switch tablet has a built-in gyro, I'm pretty sure this is what every game uses for gyro in handheld mode as its in the most accurate position. So handheld motion controls should work.

    Heh, I'm the opposite - I only buy stuff online.

    Hori is very well known for being a great controller manufacturer.
    My Hori Fighting Commander Pro is over 2 years old already, in almost perfect condition, and is MUCH better than any alternative for fighting games.

    As for piracy itself, it's mostly a matter of service than cheapness.
    When I was a teen, I had 0 income, so almost every game I got was pirated.
    Today, most of my games are NOT pirated, since I can afford them, and Steam promotions gives them an accessible price from time to time. I even buy them at launch if I really like the IP, as I did for Warriors Orochi 4 and Tales of Vesperia: DE.

    Most of my pirated games now are on the Switch, since Nintendo sucks at deals and price adjustments.

    For what it's worth, gyro is in the Joy Cons. I'm fairly sure the tablet itself doesn't have the capability, or at least if it does, games don't interface with it.

    From memory, most games rely on the right joy con's tracking.

    I wonder if the "Pro" will come with revised Joy-Con.

    They could pull a Xenoblade and gain popularity. :P

    Making me miss Custom Robo again.

    It does, it is used in VR mode. It is not used by any game I know in anything but VR mode.

    Huh! Learn something new every day I guess! I always thought you had to keep the Joy Cons in the system for VR mode because of the gyro.

    It can be used by any game as long as there's a patch or It's supported from the start. I expect it to be at least compatible with the announced DxM gyro :-p

    Switch is more clever than you think :-p Like in the Labo VR Kit, the Elephant Trunk setup is tracking the positions of the tablet and both Joy-Cons separately.
