Actual RRP is £69.99. The joy cons for the 'nations favourite console' (™) are rarely discounted, so even this modest discount is welcome on the coloured controllers.

NEON GREEN & PINK JOY CON DUO:
£63.86 @ BASE base.com/buy…htm Next cheapest is GameSeek @ 68.08, then Amazon @ £69.

Quality controller for playing games on the nations favourite console mate.

People who don't have the switch don't realize that this is actually a deal for 2 controllers so it's actually not that bad of a deal! Heat

I get it's a good controller but £70 is way too much for what it is, I'd be happy paying around £50 for them although I'd preferably like it at £40 like the competition

I'd quite like them at £40 or £50 too. I paid £291 for my Odessy Switch Bundle, I would have quite liked that to have been more like £150, but then reality set in and I paid the £291.

People who don't have a Switch realise that paying this much for a controller is a note a deal by any stretch of the imagination. Nintendo have a cornered market of suckers and fans. These controllers don't even have analogue triggers.

It has HAD rumble though. And very accurate motion controls.

Nintendo hardware is never allegedly sold at a loss. Microsoft and Sony will subsidise hardware (also allegedly) to drive software sales.

No, it's not cheap for two controllers. But can you find it cheaper?

PS4 DS pads were regularly £40 and nobody (me included) thought much of it and paid up.

Just get the Yellow ones bro ! Wow those yellow joy-cons are sexy , I'm hunting round now for a pair of em , easily the best colour I have seen

I remember saying the exact same thing when looking in Game at the launch of the PS4 :P

I got myself an extra set of Joy-Cons, and now I can play 4 player Mario Kart. I think the Switch is the first time I've been able to justify getting enough controllers for 4 players to play local multiplayer, and that was just by buying one extra set of controllers.

As previous comments said, there is a lot of quality put into these. Very much packed into something small.

It’s also worth noting, that they can be used as 2 controllers, which is more than impressive.

Yea it is expensive but you have to remember they are a business and they deserve to make a profit for something that has above than average manufactured cost. Otherwise there would be no consoles for us at all.

I really want a green and yellow, as the pink clashes with the neon red that I already have.

I’m not sure whether to wait for more colours or not.

The yellow ones are very bright. I got the yellow straps/attachment to clip on to make them all yellow. And also added the yellow Hori Star Mario theme thumb grip. As the buttons are black it all goes well with a black comfort grip to, if you like to use them.

I will add the Hori Luigi thumb grip and green strap/attachment to the green joy con.

The pink one I will get the pink strap/attachment and a plain yellow thumb grip to make it look like a Peach controller.

Here is a photo of my kids dark red Odyssey joy cons.

Heat added. I love the colours of these joycons but because I know if I bought them I wouldn’t use them as I find the pro controllers more comfortable (unless they introduce a more comfortable adapter thing)

Yeah kind of but with rubber grips and joined together (like the one that comes with the switch but doesn’t have rubber)

Nothing can stop “Mon/Dad I wanna this !”, dude.

They've got the grey ones on simply games for 59.99

I brought a switch for kids (myself) for Christmas, but I cant justify spending this much on second controller, would rather buy games for it.

I haven't set it up etc yet, waiting for the big day, but I have brought a JYS Wireless Pro Controller for around £16 as might need more than the two the Joy Cons give if people pop over, anyone had any experience with these ?

Just a heads-up that Very have this in stock for £64.99 what's more there is a website called vouchercodes.co.uk which have a first Very Credit order offer of £30 back on a £60+ spend
