pray you don't need a refund afterwards
NOTE that this model has the old dpad that has now been replaced on the newer versions of this controller (xenoblade design). There was an issue where you could press down on the dpad in the middle which would press 2 or 3 directions at the same time.

If you pay with credit card is it correct that you would get your money back no problem should you not receive the item?

They have been having a big clearout the last few weeks, I made 3 orders - all items soooo much cheaper than elsewhere and all 3 orders arrived, last one just this afternoon.
Shame the £5 code isn't working with this one

I know, which is why I mentioned that your credit card would be a safe option should you order
Says on website standard delivery is before Xmas but at checkout says 27th. £3.95 to get it before xmas.32821646-UDrND.jpg
It might be worth pointing out that it's on their Ebay account too. I received a £10 off a £30 spend code in an email from Ebay today (might be worth checking your emails) £39.98 for a Pro Controller is a deal and a half. Christmas has completely cleaned me out though...

Is the Xenoblade version fixed too?

My error. It's the xenoblade version that has the updated dpad. The splatoon and the original black version have the faulty dpad. I have heard that it's hit and miss with the xenoblade ones too as there are some that have the fixed dpad and others reported that don't.
doesnt the pro controller have the dpad issues ?

Heads up that there is plenty of Click and Collect stock available in St Andrews Retail Park (next to Birmingham City FC St Andrews Football Stadium, by the Morrisons) for those who live close by.

Same here. Just ordered and delivery says 27th. Hopefully they still exist then!
Hi Guys just to say I bought the Xenoblade version which some say is better than the original D Pad. And after a gaming period with the controller I found the travel with the analogue sticks were way too much travel. This caused fatigue with my thumb. I bought from Amazon and sent it back. Do be careful as bigger is not always better. I'm back to using the original grip.
Too much for what is a relatively basic controller (doesn't have the trackpad of the PS4 one etc).

Switch peripherals in general are shockingly overpriced. I think it's very cynical given Nintendo's younger fanbase. Sucker them in and then rip them off with £60 controllers and games that never drop in price.

Aweful price for a controller but still, this price is hot. Nice find OP.
I got mine for £50 off Tesco Outlet on eBay.
Not a bad price. Similar to what a PS4 and Xbox one controller would set you back without a deal.

But I have for my N.switch is a usb convertor that lets me use a PS4/Xbox 1 controller on my switch (wired) but only cost me £10. So can't argue with that route.

If this controller was £30-35, on sale I would consider it.

You DO get a USB-C cable.
And the thing about this controller is the battery. It is much, much better than any XBOX/PS controller I have ever used. It just lasts for ages.
Switch gaming isnt cheap - you'll pay £25 just for the charging grip or buy 3 recent AAA PC titles for one Swutch game.This has motion sensors so you wont see it under £45 except in closing down sales

You can see the D pad problem by pushing up on the left or right parts of the cross - there's a button test in the Switch menus. In normal gaming its not worth worrying about - and its only one of those internet stories that its "fixed" in the Xeno version.

link? to the convertor
Your bank only protects you on a chargeback if it's for over £100 xx
You can get a good deal on this and bomberman if you use zeek. Currently 20% off an £80 gift card.

Last one from the guy I bought it off.

Great built quality, metal body. Comes with a otg usb C to A cable as well.
Is this really considered cheap,? I haven't had a console in a while but this seems a lot.

I think chargeback is for debit cards though. Credit card companies have different rules. You are more protected using a credit card.

I've only used mine a couple of times. As I usually play it in tablet mode, but had it running PS4 controller while me and a friend used a Joycon each on 3 player mario kart 8.

Also works directly into the console with the provided usb C to USB A cable.

Can do this with the switch. Just need to tidy up the cables.

Ok,this fact alone killed the deal for me.

Watched a vid on you tube the other day discussing this. It was mentioned that only the xenoblade version for now has the updated dpad. Unfortunately I have the original black version with the old dpad
