Gaming controllers are pricey and the Switch Pro Controller is a great case for a lot of tech in one spot, but costs a lot of money. Having HD rumble and motion controls (in addition to offering larger sticks and a D-Pad) makes it a great way to play console games on the Switch but if that high price point is pushing you away, you might want to reconsider getting one.
It came out recently that it’s compatible with PC’s, as when plugged into a computer it reads the device as a gaming controller. So if you wanted a spare controller for action games or platformers on PC, the Switch Pro Controller might be a good option to look into.
