Doesn't seem to be reflected online, but it's definitely that price here. Seems a bit on the high side for a controller but I've heard these are really good, even on PC

That's like half price isn't it?

Though I've heard despite being the best controller imaginable when it works, they break super easy.

I haven't noticed any real difference between the two. Face buttons just as flimsy and unresponsive as the one I got out of the box with my SX. Battery life is a lot better I guess.

Uhh... I got mine at 120, which I thought was a amazing deal at that time.

A regular controller is 60-70 bucks. An Elite 2 for 89??? No brainer.

Absolutely

I'm buying another one also, this is the longest a controller has lasted with no issues to. Over 2 years old and it still functions properly.

Wait you got the series 1 controller? I'd avoid that one unless you meant the v2 which is the newest model.

Are you talking about the texture of the sticks going dull or the input? I luckily haven't experienced drift yet on any first party controllers, even the joy cons (though I hardly use those).

Yeah just the coating. Although the drift thing was just like Switch Joy Cons.

I actually bought a Switch Split Pad Pro specifically so I wouldn't have to use Joy Cons ever again.

I use thumb grips on the dual shock and dual sense controllers. It protects the sticks and I like the texture and feel better anyway.

Current ones i'm using are pretty cheap ($7 for 3 pair).
