Nintendo Switch Pro Controller deal takes $10 off at Amazon

Ars Technica

Today’s Dealmaster is headlined by a nifty $10 discount on Nintendo’s Switch Pro Controller, as the gamepad is currently available for $59 at various retailers. Though we’ve seen the controller drop as low as $50 in the past, deals on the Switch Pro pad are generally rare, and this deal matches the lowest price we’ve tracked in the past year. For reference, Nintendo normally sells the device for $70.

We’ve previously recommended the Switch Pro Controller in our guide to the best Nintendo Switch accessories. It’s only worth buying if you regularly dock your Switch up to a TV, but if that’s the case, it’ll provide a significant comfort upgrade over Nintendo’s default Joy-Con controllers. The shape is roomier and easier to grip, the buttons are larger and provide a more satisfying sense of feedback, there’s a genuine d-pad, and the whole thing gets an excellent 35-40 hours of battery life per charge. It keeps the same motion control and Amiibo scanning features, too, and it can be used with Steam on the PC if needed. (Though its lack of pressure-sensitive analog triggers could present issues there.) If you’ve ever used an Xbox controller, it should feel immediately familiar.
If you’re all set on the Switch front, though, we’ve also got discounts on good USB-C chargers, Bose noise-cancelling headphones, our 2020 game of the year Hades, and much more. You can check out our full deals roundup below.
