Discover the Nintendo Switch Joy-Con Controllers!
Play in 3 modes!
The versatile Joy-Con offer multiple surprising new ways for players to have fun. Two Joy-Con can be used independently in each hand, or together as one game controller when attached to the Joy-Con grip. They can also attach to the main console for use in handheld mode, or be shared with friends to enjoy two-player action in supported games.
Experience HD rumble!
Both Joy-Con include advanced HD rumble, which can provide compatible games with subtle vibrations that are much more realistic than before. The effect is so detailed that a player could, for example, feel the vibration of individual ice cubes colliding inside a glass when shaking a Joy-Con. With HD rumble you can experience a level of realism not possible through sights and sounds alone.
More than meets the eye!
The left Joy-Con has a Capture Button that players can press to take instant screenshots of gameplay to share with friends on social media. The right Joy-Con includes an NFC touchpoint for interaction with amiibo figures, as well as an IR Motion Camera that can detect the distance, shape and motion of nearby objects in specially designed games! Each includes an accelerometer and gyroscope motion sensor, making independent left and right motion control possible.
Share the joy right out of the box!
Two Joy-Con controllers come with every Nintendo Switch, meaning you're set up for multiplayer out of the box! Each Joy-Con last for up to 20 hours on a full charge. To re-charge simply attach them to the Nintendo Switch console or Charging Grip.

Okay so I've had the Switch since launch but I didn't want to write my review until I had time to spend with it, in particular away from home as that's its main feature.
The build quality is exceptional. The switch feels good in your hands, not too heavy but just enough weight there to feel really comfortable. Battery life is good but as with all portable devices it will depend on what you are playing on it. We sat and played Snipperclips and 1-2-Switch for a combined three hours and the battery had decreased around 8%. Breath of the Wild went on for thirty minutes and the battery decreased 30%.
Playing portable with the Joy-Cons detached is surprisingly easy to get used to, but the hand-held gamer will prefer them attached to the unit. The Switch will slide into the dock and will output to your TV almost instantly. I've had it for three weeks now and all in all, I am very happy with it. I also purchased an additional AC adapter for when it comes with me - this was essential for me as I wasn't keen on digging out the included adapter from my set-up each time I'm away.
The Joy-Con feel good. At first, I though they were a little small but you soon get used to them. There's been a lot of things floating around regarding desyncing issues with the left side (For which Nintendo have now issued a statement over) but I have experienced intermittent issues with the right side Joy-Con.Read more ›
Upon opening the box, my initial impressions were that the console was smaller than I had expected, but once you attach the two Joy-Cons it is about the same size as the Nintendo Wii U’s tablet screen (see my photo for a size comparison). Regardless of the size, the quality of the materials feels very high-end. I particularly like the way the two Jon-Con’s clip into the Joy-Con holder to provide a very comfortable and ergonomic controller. (Again, see my photo for a comparison against the Wii U Pro Controller).
So, is the Switch any good? That’s very difficult to answer at this moment because I only have two games, which are Zelda - Breath of the Wild and Super Bomberman R. However, what I have played and experienced so far has been incredibly positive. I’ve played the games in the three playing modes, which are: TV Dock, Table Top (Joy-Cons detached) and Handheld (Joy-Cons attached). In all three modes of operation, I couldn’t detect any degradation in performance or speed. I was particularly impressed by the seamless transition from playing Handheld and Table Top mode into TV Dock mode.
The console’s menu system is minimalist and uncluttered, which I prefer and I found myself intuitively navigating the various options with no difficulties.Read more ›
There will properlly be spelling mistakes here so don't bother correcting me as I really don't care for people like that.
Anywho I will do a pro's and con's in my option as to why I thought it was a 4 star, not a 5 as there where a few little issuies I've seen for the past few pays I've been playing Zelda as I've had a few days off work.
Not sad enough to phone in sick for a computer games console as got a morgage to pay and that comes first.
The pro's (good points)
I brought the neon version of the console and it is really small and very smart looking, really doesn't take up alot of space whitch is good as I live in a 1 bedroom house.
The main part of the console, ie where you put the games in and see the screen fills really good in my hands and the graphics are amazing.
The internal memory is 25.7 GB and with Zelda via the cargiage only takes up 216 MB.
The controller that comes with it fills good in my hands also, looking at it you would think not so that was a pleasent surprise.
I like how steady it fills, while can be fiddle at times just do everything slow and hit the release button, everything has to be dead on other wise it won't work properlly, ie, the controller has to line up and clicks into place, if you rush and use alot of force it will properly break like some idiot did on youtube.
My console personally has no issuies on the left controller or doesn't die or anything that I can tell at this earlly stage.
In hand mode the battery life seems really good, played just under 2 hours and used up about 50% of it.Read more ›

The included HDMI cable does not work. The left joy-con also disconnects constantly when playing on tv.
These are common HARDWARE issues - not software issues.
