Good price I guess. Nintendo's pricing scheme has done a great job uniting the weak and the wealthy.

Shame it's not the same price for the neon pair. I want the option for a full blue neon or red neon set.

Edit: I can wait though as there's not much reason for another set of joy-cons yet.

Talking about this with a buddy at work earlier. Black would be nice, but we both agreed that Gamecube purple ones with coloured buttons would be awesome. Nintendo would be missing a trick by not releasing themed controllers in the future.

Any experienced a loose right trigger on their joycons? I swear every recent nintendo portable I've had I get the same issue (DS lite and 3ds) where the right trigger stops feeling as "clicky" as the left.

The £74.99 neon pack with snipperclips at smyths is still the best deal as the game is £17.99 making the joy cons £57 provided you want snipperclips of course

Nice price for the grey ones though!

​Is snipper clips still £15 at cdkeys? then this would be a better deal than the smyths bundle.

I realised how nice purple looks after I saw it here. https://www.reddit.com/r/NintendoSwitch/comments/5yucj2/got_bored_of_grey_didnt_want_neon_went_retrocube/

You could try painting them yourself if you're handy enough

Oooh Yoshi green ones would look great

Changeable faceplates would have been a neat trick and a great money maker for Nintendo.

Thanks, have been waiting for a good deal since I wore out my original ones from playing all the great available games.

playing multiplayer like Fast RMX maybe? give each person 2 joy cons in a grip rather than an awkward single joy con sideways option

its £15.19 if you have a 5% off code, which as far as I know you can only get one per Facebook account? I've already used mine before

Aye.

I suppose it just seems a bit weird that in that instance the pads would end up costing 3 times the price of the game.

These will be a must have when Mario Kart and Splatoon arrive of course.

That just seems so long away I think I can wait.

I wouldn't be paying money for more Joy Cons when they're having so many issues at the moment personally.. Good price though.

They'll keep trickling down to a reasonable price. I wish someone would do the pro controller at a decent price. Playing Zelda on the little joycons isn't great...

It's useful for playing 4 player bomberman as a family, you can also swap your flat controllers for a charged pair which are docked with the switch so you always have charged controllers and that when mario kart is out next month we already have a set for playing as a family.

Cheaper than a pro controller though I will always choose pro controllers over joycons- I've yet to see the point of getting another pair of joycons seeing as there's no games that support that amount of players (as far as I'm aware of) and you can just get a pro controller if you want to play a two player game that needs both joy cons

Will be waiting till version 2 comes out before I buy any more, the left joycon disconnecting all the time at 6ft for me is enough to put it off till they come up with a fix.
Good price though

4 player Snipperclips went down a storm with the kids at a weekend get together. Expected Bomberman to be the multiplayer hit but they haven't taken to it.

It is 4 player though, which makes it a bit less crazy - at least for me. If you wanted to play a 4 player game on PS4 or XBone then you'd probably spend about 3 times as much on controllers, even if you bought a big game (rather than a cheaper, download-only one).

Im not into nintendo but just curious how are these a good price exactly?

60£ for a controller... or is it just good price compared the the rrp?

It's £60 for 2 controllers or £30 each, an Xbox or PS4 controller is usually a bit over £40 each.

Can confirm this works. Nintendo did not advise to do this in the patch notes for the update which they should of but i can play pretty much 10 foot away now with no issues so far.

i thought you need both of them on the console, so is it 4 seperate things, 2 controllers?

I love Mario Kart 8.

Was totally wasted on the Wii U.

Looking forward to it!

I'm holding off buying a switch for a while. it seems to have a lot of problems.

I admit to not being a gamer, and in fact I am of the opinion that anyone over the age of about 14 who is has something wrong with them, however, why would it matter what colour the controllers are??

If you are using them attached to the console then yes you need both but if you're gaming on the television you can use these as separate controllers for multiple players or put them in a controller grip to use as a single controller. If you buy a switch you get 2 controllers in the box that attach to the console but you can remove them and attach the controller straps which makes them separate controllers. This is 2 controllers so you can buy this and use with the included controllers with your switch to let you play 4 player games like bomberman which is what myself and my family do.

A single joycon is not equivalent to an XB1 or PS4 controller though.

I thought the same thing. A pair of gold Zelda ones would be spot on.
