If you’re looking for a companion to your Nintendo Switch look no further then the Pro Gaming Elite Bundle. Below I’ll provide you with the Pros and Cons (very few if any) of this essential accessory to your Nintendo Switch.
I never felt that the designers over at Nintendo really took the time to figure out how anyone with normal human hands with opposable thumbs were suppose to comfortable play the Nintendo Switch without a pro controller. Take a good look at the design and you think “Yooo how the hell am I support to navigate and shoot at the same damn time with the button configurations” makes no sense. A console that I enjoy so much because of the portability was deemed pretty much useless when playing anything requiring both joy sticks along with constant button pushes. My thumb would get all crammed, I felt I was doing some long term damage to my hand not playing with my pro controllers while in bed or waiting at the dentist. I didn’t purchase the Nintendo Switch to be forced to play in front of my tv screen to be most comfortable. Again this isn’t a rant on the Nintendo Switch, its a great product and my opinions on it we can discuss at another time but about how essential this grip is since the moment a good friend told me about the products via Kickstarter a few months back.
The Satisfye Gaming Grip is designed to fit the Switch tightly to the point where I can comfortably walk around my home holding it with one hand knowing that nothing will go flying. The Plastic used feels high grade and grips to my hands firmly. I can finally playing FPS’s without complaining 30 minutes in because my hands are cramping. I can play NBA 2K19 now for longer periods all because of this simple accessories that Nintendo could not provide.
The Satisfye Gaming Ultimate Case is the case given with the Elite Bundle, you also have the option of purchasing the Grip Pro alone here. The case provides space for 20 cartridges where most manufacture cases only provide you space for about 10 to 15. In the middle is the space for your battery pack. The battery pack that fits can be purchased here. This provide your Switch with an additional 2 to 4 hours of game time for extended trips (Or playing processor hungry games like Zelda or NBA 2K19). There is also an additional zipper where you can throw in a few extra’s like your Joycon attachment thingy’s (I dunno what there called), and a few snacks lol. Seriously, the case is designed with very high grade material and doesn’t feel cheap in the slightest. The case is a slightly larger then you would expect at about 12 inches in length so make sure you have the space in your backpack for it.
Pros: No more arthritis playing my Switch.
Comfortable to casual walk with one hand (Not recommended lol)
High grade plastic (I’ve dropped it a few times already)
Case is made with high grade material also (I have small kids, i drop things constantly) durability is important to me.
Can hold 20 games
Extra Zipper for additional accessories
Cons: Not a fan of the Thumb grips, just my opinion meh..
IMPORTANT- Unplug the battery from your Switch prior to closing the case. There is the chance that while charging the battery it will bring the switch to standby and if it remains plugged it can get very hot and eventually fry your favorite portable companion if your not aware. (Happened to me twice)
If I was to rate this I would give this 5 stars, the cons are just opinion based and have nothing to do with the actually product. The current price point for me was about 45 bucks, so to me its worth every penny and a great gift to give anyone with a Nintendo Switch, TRUST ME THEY WILL BE GRATEFUL!
