    Great, so we go from a bad DPAD in the Pro Controller, to nightmareland here.
    Nice move.

    Is that the same state of the art bluetooth that lost connection as soon as a fly came between the joycon and the Switch?

    Jokes aside, the fact that gbatemp puts those :P in the name is just great.

    Even the name isn't really sure about the controller.
     
  9. Eesh, the Switch went from having no third party controllers to having one too many third party controllers. :P

    I'd skip that, the "d-pad" looks worse than the one on the left Joy-Con and the handles don't appear to be comfortable to hold.

    The Bluetooth module is good enough, it's the antenna design on the left joycon specifically that causes issues - due to being less packed than the right joycon Nintendo opted for an on-pcb antenna rather than a more reliable external antenna as on the right one which lead to random disconnects due to interference from the other elements on the board as well as other equipment nearby.

    Gotta admit that I knew this already. What made me scratch my head was them calling it state-of-the-art since that's the first time I've heard the switch's bluetooth module described that way. Ah, marketing...
     
  12. Anyone noticed the A/B/X/Y buttons look like they'll be clicky than smushy?

    I've heard this rumor the Inkling Pro Con fixes the DPAD problem, I am really interested to go to the stores and check if the rumor is true.

    Joules. /s

    My ProCon also has this annoying you-can-press-the-dpad-in-the-center problem, so I want to check myself if that is fixed in the funny colors Pro Con.

    they better change that D-Pad ASAP! otherwise, I might consider it...IF and ONLY IF it´s cheaper than Nintendo's offer.

    I like the pro controllers d-pad what do you hate about it?

    On another note, I don't think an item description that makes use of that many ":P" should be trusted.

    Probably not seeing as how the Nintendo reader used is probably patented.
