While the system itself comes with the two JoyCon controllers, an alternate option is the Nintendo Switch Pro Controller.Oddly though, no pre-orders for the Pro Controller have popped up in the US, but it likely is coming very soon.
Thomas Mahler, CEO of Moon Studios, calls Sony’s PS4 Pro a “half-assed upgrade,” when compared to Microsoft’s Project Scorpio.He goes on to say that Project Scorpio is a “full blown next-gen machine that’s just backwards-compatible to your current library.
Notorious gaming analyst Michael Pachter of Wedbush has some viewpoints that fans awaiting the Xbox Scorpio may not want to hear.With the console expected to release later this year, Microsoft dubbed the Xbox Scorpio the most powerful console ever made.
You can file this under “pleasant surprises,” as one redditor who got his hands on a Nintendo Switch early has learned that the console’s Pro Controller, which gives gamers a more traditional-feeling control scheme, can easily connect to a PC via Bluetooth.The Wii U’s Pro Controller needed a special program to connect it, while the Wii’s remote controller was found to work via Bluetooth as well.
That’s still the case, as any update to that would require a hardware change, but it does get a bit closer with a new PS4 Pro update that enables 4K media playback via the Media Player app.The PS4 Pro update should roll out later today, with no impact for regular PS4 owners.
