The 20% off coupon works for the "marketplace sellers" also. I ordered a pair of the blue Joy Cons, and the order details lists "ProElectronics Distributing Inc." as "Shop Name." It took about 7-8 days for my order to arrive, but other then being a little slower than Amazon everything went great!

If you do end up picking up an extra set of Joy Cons, then you might want to grab one of these, so you can charge all four at once.

This is as good of a price as I have seen on the charger.

Re: Nintendo Switch: Building a New Generation of Hardware from Scratch

I dunno, you might as well get the charging grip since you'll need one to emulate a full controller with the second set of joycons.

Man, they have us over a barrel with these accessories. I still can't believe they sell the blue and red straps separately.

Re: Nintendo Switch: Building a New Generation of Hardware from Scratch

I must have been doing something wrong as Christmas Day was the first time we have played it and are still getting used to it. Thanks everyone.

WHAT!?!? We're getting an Arcade Archives version of Double Dragon!?!?

Sad thing is when this game is played in co-op, it sloooooooows down.

Hoping my girlfriend got me Azure Striker Gunvolt for Christmas, still waiting on her gifts to arrive. I got a 75.00 giftcard from friends, so I've decided to spend it on a Wii U. Mainly because the original Wii eShop is being shut down, there are a number of games I want to secure before it's shut down for good.

Re: Nintendo Switch: Building a New Generation of Hardware from Scratch

Best Buy has Mario + Rabbids Kingdom Battle on sale for $39.99 this week, so it's $31.99 with GCU.

Since I bought it on the 22nd, I'm taking my receipt back today and getting an adjustment.

I am really enjoying this game.

I regret buying that game at full price only because of how often itís been on sale. Ah well I guess.

Re: Nintendo Switch: Building a New Generation of Hardware from Scratch

Iím satisfied with the Pro Controller so far. Expensive but itís got a nice quality feel to it. Itís got just the right amount amount of heft where it feels sturdy and the buttons, joysticks, and D-pad all feel good.

Re: Nintendo Switch: Building a New Generation of Hardware from Scratch

I thought about getting a Pro Controller, but as expensive as it is, I figured getting a second set of Joy Cons and a charging grip made more sense.

Maybe a Pro Controller will go on sale next Black Friday. :fc;

It may have Mario in it but it's still an Ubisoft game. The Nintendo brand is the only reason it hasn't been 20 bucks yet.

Thatís why I thought it might not drop in price. I should have known with it being Ubisoft though.

If it wasn't for the pro controller I would barely touch my Switch.

Re: Nintendo Switch: Building a New Generation of Hardware from Scratch

Yeah, I'm not that extreme but the pro controller is my favorite gamepad of this generation and it makes aiming in Zelda a lot, lot easier.

I hope other hardware makers take note of the heft at the very least, the weight is perfect.

Re: Nintendo Switch: Building a New Generation of Hardware from Scratch

The Switch is great as a handheld and I honestly don't mind the Joy Cons but I just figured it would be nice to have a more traditional controller for docked mode.

Re: Nintendo Switch: Building a New Generation of Hardware from Scratch

I held off playing Zelda until I got a Pro Controller and am glad I did. So much better a playing experience for me.

Re: Nintendo Switch: Building a New Generation of Hardware from Scratch

I got a Pro Controller a few months back and haven't even used it yet since i've mostly played the Switch in portable mode on the go.

I love my pro controller, the entry price was steep but being able to properly throw a fireball in SF2 is heaven! However I am going to need that Hori joystick in May when the SF Collection releases.

Really? That surprises me.
I hate holding the Joy Cons individually, but with the docking grip, they seem like a totally serviceable console controller to me (minus a D-pad).

Single joycon is perfectly fine for certain games (Strikers, Metal Slug) but even playing Mario Kart with a single joycon my hand starts to cramp. The grip dock is great, but I've hardly used it since getting a pro controller.

I love the Pro Controller. It's expensive, but well worth the money IMO.
