The Nintendo Switch Pro-Controller Works Natively With PC

If you’re looking to find a second use for your Nintendo Switch Pro-Controller then you’re in luck. DreWolf on YouTube has very recently uploaded a video to his channel showing that the Pro-Controller will, without much hassle, sync to your PC via Bluetooth. Surprisingly you won’t need to use a USB cable to pair it up with your desktop.

Take a peek at his findings below:

  1. As a PC Gamer (Who’s also getting a Switch), this makes me extremely happy :D
    Microsoft and Nintendo have done good with their controllers, now if only Sony could release a PS4 Dualshock controller that works on PC without the stupid dongle.

          1. So basically you need added software to get the Dualshock working on PC?
            Do you see what I mean?

            Microsoft’s Xbox One S Controller and Nintendo’s Pro Controller don’t need added software to run, but Sony’s Dualshock 4 needs software to even run as well as a dongle to use it wirelessly.

    2. I used to build gaming PC’s in the old days, but it’s just not worth it anymore (to me that is)
      Gaming on a console is sooooo convenient, having the devs funnel into your hardware instead of playing catchup and dealing with a lot of patches and network issues. (IDK if kids these days have to deal with the networking issues we did back when I PC gamed, but it was a pain in the ass!)

      So. Don’t feel too bad. :)

  2. Sold!
    I was thinking of leaving it out, since I’m getting another set of joycons, but this changes everything.

  3. That’s real neato! I’ve been wanting a controller to play Steam games, so maybe I will be getting a pro controller after all.

  4. Crap. Now I have to decide which controller to use to game on my Surface Book with Performance Base.

    The Nintendo Switch Pro Controller, or the Moga Power controller.

  5. I wonder if someone is working on getting the joycons to work on PC. Sure some features will need to be left out for now but it’s certainly possible.

    So I can play games on PC using it? Well if I ever get a PC game, I know what controller I’ll be using.
