Direct Link to the 1.13 Firmware update

I just played some Rocket League to test it out and it seems to work flawlessly with no perceptible lag and rumble support. The buttons correspond to the button position on the Pro Controller, so the transition was seamless.

Only the newer Xbox One controllers are supported since the earlier ones didn't have Bluetooth. I am running on the latest firmware(5.0) for the Switch as well.

The adapter is available from Amazon for $20.


Edit - This usually gets asked everytime so let me preemptively say No,Third Party Controllers do not support Amiibo.

u/AlphaNERDSolid · 55 pointsr/NintendoSwitch

The article does not go into detail. Seems like all he did is plugging it into an adapter. The adapter he used is the Mayflash MagicNS adapter. 8bitdo also offers such an adapter, however that is strictly wireless.

It's cool to see that he used an adapter for the adaptive controller on the Switch but at the end of the day it's all that he did. Nothing new in this regard.

u/k1ngm3 · 16 pointsr/SwitchHaxing

Get an 8bitdo wireless adapter! I actually just picked one up for other games and I have been using my ps4 controller on the switch. Sadly I think your biggest problem will be that let’s go doesn’t support pro controllers and only uses the buttons to throw the ball in handheld mode.

Here it is on amazon though i have seen it around other places!

u/theDreamDaddy · 11 pointsr/SwitchHacks

I personally use my PS4 controller on the Switch with the 8bitdo adapter and it works great wirelessly with rumble and motion as well. Also connects to PC. I haven’t tried it myself but the Xbox One controller should work too.

For any curious, there is also a Mayflash adapter which looks like it does basically the same as the 8bitdo one for around the same price.

u/bensly · 11 pointsr/NintendoSwitch

I've got this one: 8bitdo

I like the adapter it comes with as well, because it allows me to plug in my USB Hori pad when undocked.

u/CuriousMapleTree · 8 pointsr/NintendoSwitch

I just bought a Switch last week and over the week bought BOTW, MM2, and MK8. I was torn between a PS4 and a Switch, but have been so happy with my decision.

What I wanted to mention though, is how easy it is to get your X1 or PS4 controllers to work on the Switch. I'm not crazy about the joycons, and it was eating me up thinking I had to spend $89.99(cdn) to get a second controller (pro) so my friends and family could play when they are over.

So i started looking for 3rd party controllers, which lead me to finding 8bitdo, which is a company that makes controllers across all gens of consoles, as well as lots of adapters and other gaming things.

I bought this adapter for $25 and it will let you use your ps4, xbox, or other controllers on the Switch.

This was perfect since I alread had two PS4 controllers for my PC. Once the adapter showed up the same day (thanks Amazon) it was as simple as plugging the USB adapter directly into the Switch, and hitting pair on the adapter, then the PS and share button on the controller, and boom, it worked just like that.

Full rumble, full motion controls, and I get to keep using my favourite controllers on the Switch, with seemingly no compromises. :).

Get this 8Bitdo Wireless Bluetooth Adapter for Nintendo Switch, Windows, Mac, & Raspberry Pi https://www.amazon.com/dp/B0786JC6VW/ref=cm_sw_r_cp_api_i_TThDCbQMRJNQE and just connect your ps4 controller.

u/KvshMacGuyver · 7 pointsr/SwitchHacks

If you have a PS4, Xbox or Bluetooth controller you’re better off getting this 8bitdo. Let’s you connect to the switch in docked and comes with an adapter for handheld. Not very good for handheld but is an option

Any side effects? Input lag? Frequent disconnects?

u/ajbrensike · 6 pointsr/TeslaLounge

It can connect via Bluetooth, not with Tesla internal system though, but for $20 you can get a 8Bitdo dongle, and that can connect to a xbox one controller. Tested and played cuphead on the Tesla last night with this setup. Works perfectly.

You actually can

u/Lucifronz · 4 pointsr/NintendoSwitch

I haven't bought one, myself (intend to, though, so I can connect my Xbox One controller to my PC when I feel like it), so I can't speak on the quality of any.

Personally a cheap dongle doesn't seem like the best of ideas, because I worry about the quality. Not just whether it'll break (which is less problematic due to the usually condensed size, although the possibility is still there), but because dongles like that don't interact well with updates.

My uncle used a simple wifi adapter for his PC back when he used Windows 7 or 8. Then he updated to Windows 10 and it not only had issues working, but it outright caused crashing when used above a certain download limit. After a while just opening an internet browser guaranteed a blue screen.

That's before and after Windows 10 reinstalls.

So I elect to find something a bit more quality. I have considered the 8Bitdo adapter, myself, because it could also be used for my Switch if I need an extra controller for whatever reason. Although it's unnecessarily large, which is a problem of its own.

u/F_S_Rocks · 4 pointsr/VideoGameDealsCanada

I honestly don't recommend getting one, instead consider picking up one of these. It's an adapter that lets you pair pretty much any Bluetooth controller with the switch. Useful if you have controllers for other consoles laying around and waaaay cheaper then a pro controller. I honestly think every switch owner should have one, they're that handy.

u/ticktak10 · 4 pointsr/NintendoSwitchDeals

Yeah I felt that too when I tried the demo on the switch. I think it is because of the offset analog sticks when compared to the playstation's controller with the analog sticks on the same axis. I've seen a usb dongle that can allow the switch to accept any bluetooth controller so you could play with a ps3 or ps4 controller. These are two I've looked at since the regular joycons keep cramping my hands.

u/Brothell · 3 pointsr/Switch

Does someone have experience with this 8Bitdo dongle, it should allow you to use any remote controller, for example from PS4.

u/Preclude · 3 pointsr/NintendoSwitch

I used to be a big D-Pad guy and only moved to analog sticks for Smash Ultimate. My recommendation would be a Dualshock 3 (or 4 if you must) with the 8Bitdo Wireless Bluetooth Adapter https://smile.amazon.com/dp/B0786JC6VW
DS3 is still my preferred D-Pad.

u/Player8 · 3 pointsr/PS4

8bitdo adapter for the switch. Only works in the dock or with a usb c dongle. Like 20 bucks. I highly recommend it if you want a pro controller but don’t wanna shell out 70 bucks for it. I use my spare Xbox one controller on my switch so me and a friend can play Mario kart.

Only real downside is you can’t use the Xbox or PlayStation controller to turn the console on, so you either have to do it by hand or turn it on with the joycon then switch to the other controller.


https://www.amazon.com/Wireless-Bluetooth-Adapter-Nintendo-Switch-Raspberry/dp/B0786JC6VW

u/Lorben · 3 pointsr/NintendoSwitch

Yeah, you can connect them using an 8bitdo or Mayflash adapter plugged into the dock.

Just be aware that the AB\XY button positions are going to be reversed. As in if you press A on the controller it'll register as B since that's where the B button is located at on a Nintendo layout controller.

u/copysonic · 3 pointsr/NintendoSwitch

I personally recommend the 8bitdo device because it doesn’t look as stupid as others. 8bitdo is also an amazing company.

https://www.amazon.co.uk/8Bitdo-Wireless-Bluetooth-Raspberry-Nintendo/dp/B0786JC6VW

u/qwertylerqw · 3 pointsr/NintendoSwitch

I’ve never heard of that controller but 8BitDo is good for a controller with a good d-pad. I would recommend waiting for the SN30 Pro+ to come out because it’ll be much more comfortable than the current SN30 Pro

I have the wired SN30 Pro and it’s d-pad is fantastic. It’s a nice cheaper option

You can also use 8BitDo’s adapter or the MayFlash adapter to use a DS4 controller on the Switch if you already have one

u/deraphus86 · 3 pointsr/PlaystationClassic

So was I when it started and it’s a lot easier now.

The hardest part is going to be finding a usb drive that’s compatible. You need a relatively low capacity drive to go in the 2nd player slot, the reason it needs to be a certain type is the power supply is very limited to the front so most won’t work. I believe there is a list online of ones that’ll work. Of you want to test one you already own then follow the guide till you get to test it and see, if nothing else it’s a good practice run for you.

If you want use of the 2nd player you’ll then need to install the custom kernel (all in the guide) and big an OTG adaptor. This also means you can buy a much bigger drive and upload more content.

This is the guide I used:

https://youtu.be/ydLKv1HUd0A

This is the OTG cable I bought

Zerone Right Left Angle Micro USB... https://www.amazon.co.uk/dp/B07FMYFJVT?ref=ppx_pop_mob_ap_share

This is the wireless adapter I use for my PS4 controller (also works with Xbone)

8Bitdo Wireless Bluetooth Adapter... https://www.amazon.co.uk/dp/B0786JC6VW?ref=ppx_pop_mob_ap_share

And this is the drive I’m now using after setting up OTG

SanDisk SDCZ60-128G-B35 Cruzer... https://www.amazon.co.uk/dp/B007YX9OGW?ref=ppx_pop_mob_ap_share

These will give you an idea of expense, completely depending on how deep you want to go down the rabbit hole. You can just get yourself a working drive for the 2nd slot and play 1 player games no problem.

Completely up to you!

u/jdelamater99 · 2 pointsr/DestinyTheGame

I haven't had any luck either, so I just ordered this adapter.
https://smile.amazon.com/gp/product/B0786JC6VW/


It arrives tomorrow, so I'll report back after I've had a chance to test it.

u/grymmhain · 2 pointsr/NintendoSwitch

This would probably work similar to the USB adapter that was just released to let you pair other controllers. You’d have to set the pro controller settings to wired. And of course use it with the USB cable attached.

Edit for link to product

u/HayesCooper19 · 2 pointsr/hardwareswap

I don't think a 7 year old would feel cramped on the joycons, but a pro controller is still a good investment. I'd also recommending checking this out as alternative that could save a few bucks if you have a bluetooth controller lying around or picked up a Wii U Pro controller super cheap.

u/_softlite · 2 pointsr/NintendoSwitch

DS4 work with the Switch in docked mode by plugging in an adapter to the dock, but I'm not sure which adapter you're referring to. If you already own the controller and adapter, you can test and find out. If not, I would recommend buying an adapter that's known to work, such as the 8Bitdo or Mayflash Magic-NS.

u/JEMerc · 2 pointsr/NintendoSwitch

Speaking of which [these adapters] (https://www.amazon.com/dp/B0786JC6VW/ref=cm_sw_r_cp_api_DvANBb2P0FC50) are amazing. You can use Ps4, Xbox and WiiU Pro controllers on the Switch (and PC, Mac or Raspberry Pi)! Works out of the box and I’m surprised people haven’t talked much about them here.

Hi, if you're not liking the switch pro controller...there is an option for you...there is an adapter that makes ps4 and xb1 controllers work for the Nintendo switch...completely wirelessly. I attached a link below.

https://www.amazon.com/Wireless-Bluetooth-Adapter-Nintendo-Switch-Raspberry/dp/B0786JC6VW

There's a cheap sale and the seller is selling it for $10. It usually costs $20 however.

Happy Gaming.

Edit

It DOES NOT work wirelessly though... sorry.

u/EpicJEpic · 2 pointsr/DragonsDogma

Absolutely! This is what I grabbed off Amazon for $20:

https://www.amazon.com/dp/B0786JC6VW/ref=cm_sw_em_r_mt_dp_U_IHzYCbRKGV6Y1

I haven't had any issues with it so far. The only quirky thing I've had happen was sometimes it will allow me to turn on the switch from the PS4 controller and sometimes not, so I just hit the button from a joycon and then use the PS4 controller. Also you can only pair one controller to the dongle.

If anyone picks one up I'd update the firmware on it before using the dongle. It's a quick download and install that takes only a few minutes.

u/stockcar1515 · 2 pointsr/RetroPie

Here is the one I've used. Also, the one made for NES/SNES Classics is several dollars cheaper and I'm pretty sure that they can be used with a Pi by plugging it in with the provided micro USB to USB cable as I've seen others say it works. I actually own one of the SNES Classic retro receivers, so I can try it out later when I get a chance to confirm.

u/guero_vaquero · 2 pointsr/Steam_Link

Samsung 2017 TV owner here. Bought an 8BitDo off amazon and plugged it into my TV and it works like a charm. I use my PS4 controller, but the pairing process is super easy and identical. I also used a male-to-female USB extension cable to let the 8BitDo hang down in an easily accessible area so I can re-pair my controller if I end up playing PS4 and then coming back.

Link to the exact one I bought:

https://www.amazon.com/dp/B0786JC6VW/ref=cm_sw_r_cp_api_i_ZFIlDb0SHTTSR

Side note: Haven’t bothered to try and look into it, but when I end remote play, I get an odd green band across the bottom 1/16th of the screen. That goes away with a power cycle and I think is just some kind of odd artifact in the UI.

One of those 8bitdo receivers. With an OTG cable. https://www.amazon.com/gp/aw/d/B0786JC6VW?psc=1&ref=yo_pop_mb_pd_title. It even works with a Wiimote. I'm sure it works with a Xbox 360. That's what it's recognized as. I don't have one to test.

u/ThatsSoBravens · 1 pointr/nfl

I've heard it's an amazing controller, but given that I already had three other controllers (2 PS4, and 1 xbone) to use and I didn't want to drop $70 on another, I found a Switch adapter, a cheaper solution.

u/huamanticacacaca · 1 pointr/NintendoSwitch

I didn't even know this was an option. I have four Dualshock 4 pads. So I just need an 8bitdo bluetooth adaptor and I can use that? One of us on the Pro Controller, one on the joycon pad and one on the PS4 bad. Bye bye arthritis! Thanks.

I know it's not the best answer, but try this http://www.8bitdo.com/wireless-usb-adapter/ and on amazon https://www.amazon.com/Wireless-Bluetooth-Adapter-Nintendo-Switch-Raspberry/dp/B0786JC6VW , i've been using this in conjunction with a ps4 controller to great effect, only side effect is that the controller is technically treated as a xbox controller...but functionally all the ps4 functions work perfectly so what matters under the hood :D

u/jachorus · 1 pointr/NintendoSwitch

Hey, I ended up purchasing this thing which lets you pair the controller with the adapter and it handles all the complicated directinput/xinput stuff by itself (only downside is that the PC will detect it as an XBox360 controller, which means the gyroscope won't work, but if you're not planning to use it then it's not a problem).

Worked like a charm since then.

u/alch3m1stz · 1 pointr/NintendoSwitch

i just bought a controller to answer your question.
It does not work. Maybe it will work in the future, but as of right now it does not. XBox One is also not mentioned anywhere on their product page or manual.

u/TouRyuu · 1 pointr/ffxiv

I also have small hands, and generally find the XBone & PS controllers uncomfortable, but also my fingers end up in pain if I play with keyboard.

So I play with a Switch Pro controller. You could just plug it in via cable, and have something like Steam convert the input for you (I did this for a while), but I found that 8Bitdo makes a USB Bluetooth adapter that basically tricks the computer into thinking you have a XBox controller plugged in.

This is the adapter: https://www.amazon.com/Wireless-Bluetooth-Adapter-Nintendo-Switch-Raspberry/dp/B0786JC6VW/ref=mp_s_a_1_2?keywords=8bitdo+adapter&qid=1573361152&sprefix=8bitdo+&sr=8-2

Was this the official Microsoft one? I saw someone mention this somewhere, I think it is cheaper than the M$ one, just dunno if it works/works well.

Do I need a USB hub at this point? Since I use DashCam and now need to take up another port. Just want to know what the known-best hardware is if someone knows, so I don't have to re-research it from scratch myself.

https://www.amazon.com/Wireless-Bluetooth-Adapter-Nintendo-Switch-Raspberry/dp/B0786JC6VW

I recently picked one of these up, it’ll allow you to use almost any Bluetooth controller. It’s been awesome using a PS4 controller.

u/BarrelMaker69 · 1 pointr/PS4

If you already have an Xbox one or Switch pro controller you can use this. I have one and it works really well.

u/Tyr808 · 1 pointr/NintendoSwitch

If you hate the dpad, you can get a dual shock 4 (might still be on sale at Amazon) and the 8bitdo USB adapter (https://www.amazon.com/dp/B0786JC6VW/ref=cm_sw_r_cp_awdb_t1_RJ3-BbAKCBXWQ).

Yes, this allows you to use the DS4 on a switch, it also allows use of motion controls. I don't know how well motion controls work on the ds4 vs the switch cons, but I've heard that this set up works flawlessly.

I personally did the dpad mod with some tape over the electrical contact points. It did slightly reduce the rate of wrong directions from rolling the dpad back and forth, but the design of the switch pro controller dpad means that it will never be as accurate as the joycons even if it's more comfortable. Rolling left right left right is almost always going to throw an up or down in the mix.

8bitdo also makes SNES looking controllers that work natively on the Switch as well. I've heard the newer models are nicer than the old ones.

Note that any of these solutions will lose HD rumble because that is exclusive to Nintendo first party controllers.

u/peachey777 · 1 pointr/wiiu

If you get fed up with that like I did, there's a few adapters you could get that would make this process super easy.

​

I like this one from 8bitdo. Plug it in the pc, hit thee sync button on the adapter, then on the controller, and it will now be connected and seen as an Xbox controller. Works with PS3, PS4, Wii U, Switch, and Xbox Controllers (the bluetooth ones). This also lets you hook up all those controllers to a Nintendo Switch.

https://www.amazon.com/Wireless-Bluetooth-Adapter-Nintendo-Switch-Raspberry/dp/B0786JC6VW/

​

Mayflash also masks basically the same thing as that 8bitdo adapter. It has extra quirks like setting the mode on the adapter for the device you've plugged it into. A cool bonus for this device is you can use it with a modded Wii U. I use a Switch Pro Controller on my Wii U with this

https://www.amazon.com/Mayflash-Magic-NS-Wireless-Controller-Nintendo/dp/B079B5KHWQ/

​

Mayflash also makes another device that's literally just for Wii U Pro controllers to PC and nothing else. Connects the controller as an Xbox or direct input controller.

u/pxlsquid · 1 pointr/NintendoSwitch

i got both too, and my switch pro controller just collects dust. honestly never thought i would prefer a third party controller to a first party one but here we are. so much stuff i play on switch warrants a good d-pad and that $70 pro controller just ain't got it.

another suggestion is that if you have and prefer something like a ps4 controller, you can use that with your switch. these adapters will let you use pretty much any controller with the switch. i used the Mayflash one and it works like a charm. until i got the 8bitdo using a ps4 controller to play Mario Maker 2 was the next best thing.

This is a better option. It will let you connect any controller you want to your PC and a Nintendo Switch. And it's plug and play. Assuming you own any wireless controller from the past 2 gens this will solve you problem for less than the price of a new controller. I use it with a Wii U Pro Controller to play games on PC.

Well, everybody has their priorities I guess. In my case, I don't find the joycons uncomfortable enough to complain after modding them to have a D-Pad.

If you play your Switch in docked mode, you could always grab one of these and use a DS4 with it. I tend to use my Switch in portable mode so that's not an option for me.

This would be one of the better solutions.

For those of you considering getting a new controller, you should consider the 8bitdo wireless adapter or something similar. It's a lot cheaper than a pro controller and is compatible with PS4 controllers, so if you have one lying around this is pretty cost effective. You can only connect one controller to one adapter keep in mind.
