This controller is a bit pricey (69.99) but it doubles up as a PC controller, includes the HD rumble, rechargeable battery, and Amiibo functionality. In the box also includes a 5 foot long USB C cable. I've included a picture for size comparisons if anyone is curious
- Much wider grip and fee. With the joycons, your palms are forced to be closer together. This isn't a bad thing necessarily of course. But it's a subjective con for me. With the Pro Controller, I get that pleasant feeling of having my palms spaced further apart.
- Solid build construction. Nowhere does it feel they cheaped out.
- Excellent battery life. Haven't had to charge it once. The joycons ran out of juice every few days and required constantly placing them back in the dock.
- Bigger buttons and joystick. Left joycon's joystick was way too damn prone to accidental down presses, triggering accidental crouches.
- Joycon controllers no longer need to be removed or reinstalled each time to play a game in docked mode when you can just pick up the Pro controller and start playing!
- The d-pad is definitely not without issues. I found it to be imprecise, at least initially. Pressing up on the d-pad sometimes triggered left or right presses. I find that the PS4's dualshock controller's semi-separation of the d-pad's directional keys is superior (see comparison pic below). After over a week of using it, it seems to have improved. But I still get the rare mispress.
- No 3.5mm jack. If you want to use headphones in the living room while playing in docked TV mode, your options are (1) get a really long 3.5mm audio cable for your wired headphones or (2) get a 3.5mm bluetooth transmitter along with bluetooth headphones. Again, PS4's dualshock controller gets it right on this mark as you can plug 3.5mm headphones into its 3.5mm jack.
Both cons warrant docking a star in my book as a result.
