That looks really nice but you know with these controllers that there's going to be a catch. Weaker battery than the Pro controller, no NFC reader and no HD Rumble. On the other hand it has a Turbo button. Also, how much does it cost? If the difference is $20 or less, then to me it's just not worth it.

The Pro Controller's battery is just amazing, so I'd have no problem with even half of what it has. I very rarely use NFC, so it wouldn't be too hard to just take off a Joy-Con for that. HD Rumble would be the biggest loss for me, and it may only have the gyro with no accelerometer, but I don't think accel is used all that often, other than in games like 1-2-Switch and Mario Tennis Swing Mode which require a Joy-Con anyway. At 60 bucks, it's almost half the price of the Pro Controller. These would be great to have for multiplayer.

Nyko has never failed to let me down. They couldn't even get a friggin' battery for the Wii U controller right.

I'm sure this thing has serious flaws and is possibly dangerous to keep inside the home.
