    Don't have a switch, but I really liked the feel of switch pro controllers so I might end up getting one at some point when I have the cash to spare.

    YESSSSSS! I've been using my Switch Pro controller as a "Generic Controller" through Steam for ages, so glad it now has official support! I love this controller, and now I love it even more! Gyro support's gonna be hella nice! Also, I can finally map the screenshot button to actually taking screenshots on Steam!

    Just tried things out with my Switch Pro controller and can confirm that there's full rumble support in all games! Very, very happy about this :D

    I love the battery life of my pro controller and haven't cares about analog triggers in most games so this is a big plus in my books.

    I tried it out earlier today. I just plugged in my pro controller via USB, and it just worked. I switch A/B and X/Y in settings since games typicality use the Xbox controller layout. Had to do that to play Super Meat Boy comfortably. Since I was using it wired, I don't need to re-sync it with my Switch which is nice.

    considering the Wiimotes use light to determine location, you'd need a light or candle on either side of your monitor. It's better to simply buy the USB bar (forgot the name, but I have one laying around here somewhere...).

    I'm pretty sure if you have one of those, you can use it in steam. Maybe not the motion controls (haven't tried), but definitely the buttons and such.

    Not much of a PC 'Master Race" When you use game console controllers to play your pc games.... The PC master race should not have to use console controllers if they are so much better then consoles.....

    yes, consoles can use largest variety of controller, so you don't have to eat what platrformholder forces you to and act according to your own prefferences. Oh wait?... Ya... Bummer.
