    Damn it, my family just bought me a Pro controller for my Switch last week, I can’t justify this.

    But I probably will.

    There are also Devastator and Jazz packs coming. Each of the packs are $15. No release date known.

    Is it safe to assume Devi and Jazz will be represented in their respective G1 colors? If so, Jazz would be a bit plain.

    I'm assuming these don't fit a standard Xbox controller, despite being of roughly the same shape/size?

    I mean if these are "universal" controllers I guess I could pair it with my iPad...

    Anyone actually own a candycon controller? how does it feel quality wise to like, an xbox one controller? better? worse? i love these faceplates and need an excuse to get a new controller but i dont wanna downgrade if theyre kinda cheap feeling. custom controllers like this always give me a bit of hesitance.

    Yeah I really like that Hot Rod plate but I am hesitant to blow $50 on a controller + plate and buttons if it's gonna be DOA within months.

    Unfortunately, from what I've heard, this is a switch controller

    Are these going to come to GameStop Canada, too? I hope so. Most times we get the short end of the stick with exclusives.

    These things are always of a lesser quality compared to official controllers. They’d be better off to just make alternate shells for the real deal, because as it stands I wouldn’t want to play games with these over the official ones even if the designs are cool.

    So what all systems are these compatible with? I didn't see that anywhere in the "article" or the GS site.

    The Hot Rod one looks pretty cool. I’d get it but a) I rarely play video games anymore, b) I don’t feel like dropping $53 on a controller that I’ll probably never use, and c) my GameCube taught me never to trust 3rd party controllers.

    I almost missed it too but down in the corner it says PC and Switch.

    EDIT: And apparently the other corner too. I need sleep.

    Preordered the Hot Rod and Soundwave ones. Super stoked to get them later on. Would be great if WFC and FOC could get rereleases on Switch to go with them. Or even Devastation

    from what customers and coworkers have told me, these controllers are pretty comfortable and well designed, and they use Hall Effect thumbsticks, so drift is essentially an impossibility unless you damage the controller.

    unlike most other GS branded products, these aren't a dropshipped item with a new logo slapped on
