    Anybody have any experience with how this compares to the Nintendo Switch Pro Controller? I'm thinking about getting one and both are £49.99, just weighing up my options

    I've had both and prefer the 8BD ultimate.

    Main differences is that this has a dock so will charge your controller and you can use a 2.4 GHz connection rather than Bluetooth (probably doesn't make that much a difference though). This also has hall effect analogue sticks so are less likely to drift. That being said pro's drift isn't anywhere near as bad as the joycons and all controllers will drift as parts degrade over time. Hall effects use magnets I believe but still have some moving parts that will degrade over time. It'll just theoretically take longer

    Only disadvantages with this controller is that you can't wake the switch from sleep by pressing the home button (pro can) -edit: you can in bluetooth mode if you press home and shake the controller- and you can't use amiibos with this controller.

    Just to add the 8BD also supports motion controls like the pro and also has rumble.

    The things I wasn't a fan on the pro was that it felt a little light imo and the analogue sticks felt quite "loose" compared to joycons or other controllers like a PS4/5. You do get used to it after a while though.

    Here's a good video comparing the two. I watched it before getting mine. youtu.be/kwH…G8Y (edited)

    Getting one of these for me but can anyone recommend a small switch controller designed for kids?
    Joycons are too long as their thumbs can't reach on both sides (edited)

    How is this different than the black one?


    Also, if this is anything like the black controller, it's a solid controller... Absolutely solid. (edited)

    Good controllers got one for switch (as above no drift)- word of warning though the battery pack only lasted a year on mine and support won’t help. On to disposable batteries now…
    xybp9's avatar
    Good point - kinda makes the charging dock useless (and potentially dangerous) after the original batteries run out

    does it not take standard AA batteries? My Pro 2 and Pro+ do, and I use Sanyo eneloop rechargeables with it (edited)

    huge price jump from regular 8bitdo Pro 2 controller (which has a more playstation stick layout)

    Ultimate has xbox stick layout

    otherwise largely similar - don't think I'd go for the ultimate (edited)

    My 8bitdo Pro 2 with the PlayStation layout has also now got a faulty battery it's now on disposable batteries

    Im currently using the Gulikit Kingkong 2 Pro and I find it better (edited)

    Pity the black is still £10 more. Quite fancy one of these.
