Super weird that it doesn't have gyro sensor when the game supports them.

I might get those if those analogue sticks are full size and not shit like the joycons.

Goddamn it, no gyro or HD rumble is a huge letdown. Also, only one grip button per joycon sucks.

So close, and yet so far.

Nintendo should really get in the space and release ‘Pro joycons’. Separate hand play is the future.

Or it’s, you know, a clear and obvious compromise to achieve multiple purposes. One of which is more portability. Not ‘shit’.

The sticks on the joycons are shit.

I wonder if games can just use the gyro of the system instead.

Depending on quality this could be really awesome.

No features equals no buy. Every time I see something like this I'm glad I just modded a dpad in and got a nice grip. Nintendo doesn't seem interested in making things like this properly.

No gyro? Come the f on.

I'm happy with my grip, but joycons that feel more like a controller (and keeps gyro) was always a dream. Someday.
Well, the controllers themselves don't have Gyro but the switch itself does... I'm not sure how the controller APIs are set up, but it's possible that games might fall back to internal gyro when playing with these. I don't recall reports of the Hori Dpad controller causing gyro to not work on Splatoon.

There is so much potential with the joy con concept and connector that it’s a shame it hasn’t been explored more

Remember when folks thought we'd be seeing specialty joycons for all sorts of titles prior to the Switch's launch? Interesting that that finally panned out in a way.

The more I look at this controller the more it feels like it could be so much comfier than the regular joycons that maybe it's not too bad if there is no gyro etc. But still the use case is a bit weird because it can be used only to play handheld and since it's so voluminous then only for sedentary usage rather than for travel or commutes. I still would like to get my hands on it to trial it.

Goddamn it I'm going to buy yet another Switch accessory that solves some issues but not all of them aren't I?

I currently have a Hori Joy-con with the d-pad and a Satisfye grip, so I don't really need this...but those analogue sticks are a major upgrade for handheld.

I'll wait for reviews but I need something like this. Even with a good grip the sticks on the joycons are horrible for anything other than the most basic gameplay.

Unfortunately, the Joy-Con are built around a lot of these small compromises to make the idea of the Joy-Con work. I think I've argued this point with you before, in fact. Oddly, I'd almost consider how "bad" the Joy-Con analog sticks are a positive, given the lack of a d-pad, because the limited range of motion of the analog sticks at least makes it more acceptable as an alternative to the [non-existent] d-pad. That said, the Joy-Con has too many compromises to be considered a great controller, overall.
