In all the criticizing here how come nobody has mentioned how sharp the shoulder button corners are?

    On the joycons, or is it just me? My pro controller is pretty smooth.

    Hmm I never noticed, but I see what you mean now that I examined it. Good thing this doesn't fit in my pocket, in which I definitely would have issues with it scratching my legs.

    I was thinking that it could easily snag, rip or damage something.

    Interesting. After reviewing some of your previous posts I've found that your sarcastic comments serve no purpose other than make you look foolish and increase your post count. You offer absolutely nothing to these forums. Welcome to my ignore list.

    I'm more bothered that they cheeped out and didn't do analog triggers. I guess that's a gimmick to be left with the gamecube.

    Mine aren't sharp... So to speak.. Definitely more refined than my pro controller though.

    Yes I'm disappointed the pro controller doesn't have analog triggers.

    Yea it's really not a big deal just something I noticed, I have seen other devices and controllers get ripped on for having sharp corners or edges, was surprised nobody here jumped on it.

    So will I get a paper cut on it? Should I call my doctor for advice when I get cut by it? Would Obamacare cover this if I get cut?

    I don't know what the hell the OP is smoking, but nowhere on the joycons in my possession are there any sharp parts on the shoulder buttons. This is a non-issue, and a useless thread that belongs in the Edge of the Forums. Good day.

    you yourself mention how nobody seems to talk about that. which leads me to the logical conclusion, its not as bad as you believe it to be.
    which then means, the problem might be on your end, either with your sensitivities, or your system.

    It's not completely smooth, but it's not really sharp, either. Just a bit rough on those outside corners.

    I also mentioned it's really not that big of a deal, just something I noticed and wanted to see if anyone else noticed. None of my other controllers (PRO/NN3DSXL/PS4/XBOne/XB360/PS2/Xbox/Dreamcast/SNES/NES/Atari 7800/Assorted Madcatz) have such unpolished edges. Now it makes me wonder what else they had to cheap out on to keep the price down or their profits up, like the cart dust cover which doesn't snap closed anymore and no analog triggers on joycons or pro controller, sub par dpad, sub par springs that make noise, etc etc.

    To be fair, that was not until later on in the discussion.

    However, I guess was able to find those sharp corners you mentioned on the L and R buttons of two sets of Joy-Cons I own. But really, those are so far on the outside that I never would have touched them anyways. And I will never care again, since as you said it's no big deal. But yeah, I can confirm.
