I know, I know, MSRP isn't technically a deal, but this is the first time I've seen these available since before the switch launched.

 

$79.99 for shipping only

I was hoping the thread would've started off "yo listen up.."

They had a set of the blue ones at one of my local gamestop stores yesterday. Almost picked it up but opted for the red/blue set.

Gamestop has used red and blue joy cons in stock too. They sell each one individually for $39.99 (35.99 with PUP). I had a Red and blue set of joy cons so I got a blue to complete that set to have an all blue switch.

I'm blown away people are buying these for $80 lol. I don't even like paying $40 for a PS4 controller.

I agree with 315Retro. Those controllers aren't worth 80 dollars. Paying $40 for PS4 controller is reasonable.

I am with you on this one. $80 for joycons that are different color, man people have a lot of money these days. Now if this was the pro controller I would understand, you don't get one with the system and it is a completely different from the joycons. Though even that is pricey.

Thanks OP. Only switch accessory I care about since launch was the blue joycons but I refused to pay over msrp for them, or go on a wild goose chase. Will try to get a decent price for my near mint grey ones (or what til GameStop has a good trade in deal)

For some reason these are the hardest to find.

Anyone else kinda wish they sold a no-Con version of the Switch, so you could just buy the ones you want and not have to pay for a set you don't plan to use?

Absolutely ridiculous pricing for controllers. I wish consumers wouldn't buy them. This just convinces other companies to up the amount on controllers in the future. Imagine PS5 controllers coming out at $80 or even $100.

I agree they're too expensive. I brought that up to a GameStop employee and he went on about all the technology inside.

I was like "and the pro controllers?"

"That's a luxury item."

Derp. It ain't gonna save my life Socrates...

I didnt get my Switch Pro Controller until a used one popped up that was in flawless condition and they had a B2G1 sale going on. It was the only way I could justify spending above $50 for a non specialty controller (Like a Fightpad or Fightstick or something)

just a heads up .. if you wanna trade in your gray controllers to amazon do them seperately.. if you do the listing with 2 its 27 but if you do left and right seperately its 24 something each .. kinda weird :p but same thing happened with my xbox one s trade in.. had 2 different listings each same exact thing but 60 dollar trade in difference
