    UPDATE: Idenca (the company at hand) has confirmed that this is not actually usable on a Nintendo Switch. It was just misinformation spread on Amazon's listing.

    Says it's PS3-compatible and identical to a DualShock but listed on Amazon Spain as a Nintendo Switch Wired Controller.

    If it really is, then maybe others are too.

    Maybe they were mistaken ? I don't want the wired at all. I prefer wireless! :)

    Same, but I also prefer to pay like 16 bucks for a wired controller for the kids to use instead of my 70 dollar pro controller :)

    I'm almost 100% sure this was a mistake on their part.

    Ewwww what the heck?
    Playing a Nintendo console with a PS controller is a disgrace.
    And people were complaining about the Joycons not having a proper D-Pad, then this comes along claiming it's compatible with the Switch.

    No thanks, I prefer the Joycons over the shitty design the PS controller is plagued with.

    Looks very similar to controllers I saw years ago. I highly doubt this is actually switch compatible - someone probably just put it in the wrong category by accident.

    I was figuring someone would get around to this. I was hoping it would be one of those retro style wireless tech...

    Yeah, I realize this but I'm sure in short time someone will simply reverse engineer, or just work around another pre existing to make it work with what we already have.

    What's the issue?

    I've sent Indeca an email regarding if it's compatible with the Switch or not, so they should reply within 24-48hrs. So, if it is then @Bedel might pick some for those wanting one. :)

    Considering Switch controllers are standard HID, and so are PS4 controllers (and PS3 to an extent), I wouldn't be surprised if it was Switch compatible.

    That having been said, the only way to find out is to try it.

    Well if this was that easy, then maybe we could use almost any third party controller on it

    It said "con controller".
    Amazon though it meant Switch. You know joy-cons.
