This year’s early Prime Day 2023 sales are full of big discounts, and if you’re a Nintendo fan, some surprises as well. The Nintendo Switch Pro controller, which is hardly ever on sale, just got a discount and is available for just $62.
This isn’t a massive discount–the controller usually has an MSRP of $70–but it’s something! This particular peripheral launched alongside the Switch in March 2017, and even though the design has gone virtually unchanged for over six years, it’s still one of the best controllers on the market. It ticks all the right boxes for its design, which features an attractive translucent shell that shows off the internal hardware, an absurdly strong battery life, and a wonderfully ergonomic design that makes this feel like a premium extra for your Switch.

Additionally, it also supports near-field communication for Nintendo Amiibo toys, it has HD rumble features, and motion controls built into it. Even if you don’t have a Switch, this controller will work just fine on PC when you connect it to your system with a USB-C cable.
One other smart piece of engineering here can be found on the face buttons, which are larger than the ones found on Xbox Wireless Controllers or PlayStation DualSense peripherals, making this an idea piece of technology for younger members of your household.
