    The silicone case that I ordered from Aliexpress arrived today and I'm very pleased with it. It feels very sturdy, even more comfortable and came with two grips perfect for the Switch analogue sticks with the case (the grips I had previously on it before clashed with the case).

    Ever since the Wii U generation, I got used to purchase silicone cases for controllers (WiiU Pro Controller + WiiU GamePad) and this is by far my favourite.

    Picture of the Switch Pro Controller and the Switch console with their respective cases:

    Hm, yeah. The Switch one I had to make some adjustments because in its original state the buttons were just untouchable.

    I usually never take out the Joy-Cons out of the Switch unless I'm playing on the TV so it works for me.

    At first i though you put a condom on your Switch...
    Man, this looks awful.
    Well, Pro Controller might feel nice in a hand but it looks... meh. I mean, it looks like something you would put on your gloves, not on a controller*

    Haven't seen it on eBay but it's probably now though I'm not sure if those on eBay include the extra stick grips.

    Looks horrible and pointless. Never understood silicone fetishes tbh.

    Wherever you want me, baby.
    Did you just take a thing of plastic, strangle your switch with it, and cut holes where the buttons are, using scissors? Because I'm not going to lie... that looks exactly like what happened.

    I've not recommended Switch console silicone cases because of this very issue. :P

    Avoids the controller getting any light marks or what have you and it just feels much firmer, imo.

    No, that's silly. I made the cuts without the Switch on it otherwise the Joy-Cons would be damaged.

    Not pretty, but if it functions and you like it, kudos to you. Personally, I hate the feeling of silicone cases. Also, why the fuck would a company make a case for something and not have holes punched out for the buttons? Really u could just put like 3 condoms over it and cut the holes if they gonna make you do it yourself. Joking aside, it's not pretty but does the job. (insert ugly whore joke here.)

    I actually prefer the translucent look of the controller shell. A shame you covered that up.

    Looks horrible, why would you want to do that to a beautiful console.
