Joy Con Strap £2.99 (red/blue/yellow/grey) GAME online

20
Found 31st Oct
Game are selling Nintendo Switch Joy-Con straps for £2.99, instead of £4.99. These are limited to one per customer but I'm sure we all know how to get around that. (You only get one in the box, not a pair)

I KNOW Nintendo Switch things are mostly considered overpriced BUT this is a good price and a good way to determine who uses what controller when you're having a Mario Kart party.

I was looking at getting a Joy-Con from Argos and using the £5 voucher to buy a single strap but then found Amazon to be cheaper by £5 anyway

Link goes to red. Also available:
Yellow game.co.uk/en/…565
Blue game.co.uk/en/…367
Grey game.co.uk/en/…360

Ah, I didn't check Amazon for these! But this is handy for anyone wanting to collect and/or spend GAME Reward points

Is the red the neon red or the mario red? “/

Neon red but I believe the materials are slightly different to the actual controller so there is a slight colour difference. I'll be using mine on the grey controllers anyway.

Description says "pair".


On the GAME website? I don't see that. I can only see:
"This box contains one red strap which can be attached to either the left or right Joy-Con Controller."

Do these not come with the joy con controller then?

I think the poster means, when you buy the joycon, don't you get these with them. Admittedly, it can read both ways!

Not a big Game fan, but to be fair usually better cashback, I used some points and free 1st class delivery when I bought 2. Not bad stuff for Game . Also Amazon is £4.99 for the Red.

Someone can correct me if I am wrong here, but if you buy Joy Con's they come with plain black straps. I don't even think the consoles come with straps for the Joy cons? I haven't noticed any in my Odyssey console bundle I received today.

EDIT: Amazon have price matched and are also now £2.99 for the red!

My grey console has two straps in there. Have another look.

Check the bottom layer of stuff under the Joy Cons and console (assuming it's packaged the same as standard ones), mine were one each in the little compartments which are against the middle of the long side of the box. Easy to miss though as the straps are effectively only small strips of plastic and string.

You can see better on this unboxing at about 1:52. LINK


Good price for these straps though - Got 2 yellow and a blue from Amazon and a red from Game.

I checked again and can confirm the red Odyssey console bundle comes with 2 x black straps. I did notice one of them before when having my first look inside box, and actually thought because of the metal and what looked like buttons it was some sort of mini sensor bar a bit like the Wii U had. I know what I am doing, honest! Just another thing Nintendo could have customised and made unique but didn't bother to on this apparent Limited Edition bundle.

Any-hoo, does anyone recommend the Hori Analog thumb grips pictured?

Good price for these. I may just buy one of each and then probably never use them.

sorry i mean when you buy the joy controller does it not come with one of these?

Just to confirm, the grey ones on offer are not just the same colour as the ones you get as standard (black/deep grey)?

@shapalando unofficial Joy Con ones may or may not come with straps, but the official Joy Con's do come with straps (is the optional comfort grip that is not included).

It is my understanding that when you buy a Joy-Con, (single or pair) you get the clip-on strap grip included per controller. BUT it’s dark grey, so if you wanted something different (for those with OCD to match colours and/or differentiate the controllers) then £2.99 is the best price for them at Amazon/GAME. £2.50 preowned at CEX.

I also assume the separate grey is the same as the ones included, but I am not certain, but they are certainly similar to the point where you’d only buy grey if you’d lost/damaged the originals.

The ones that come with the Switch itself are black, not grey, and so these are actually different.

Hi. Thanks, but do you know this from experience of buying them separately? On the Nintendo website, the colour of the included straps is “grey”, even though it’s dark grey. They look the same to me.

Is a bit weird the green strap is not available on the UK. I find it hard to justify paying £20 on ebay or importing it elsewhere.

That Nintendo do these weird things where you can only get simple basic item choices on the other side of the world is increasingly annoying. If anyone has a good tip for sourcing the Neon Green Strap (which will match up nicely to the green joy-con), give me a shout please.
