Because I'm sure we can all agree that the Gamecube was fantastic (we won't be taking questions at this time), you may be interested to hear that a very cool Gamecube-themed pad is the best cheap Nintendo Switch controller offering we've seen in a while. These officially-licensed handsets from PowerA bring the classic design back with a Nintendo Switch twist; they're almost identical to the originals but throw in bonus motion control, Bluetooth for wireless use, and subtle extra buttons to make it compatible with today's games. I kinda love it.
Amazon's selling the iconic purple wireless controller for $36.99 instead of $50, saving you $13. It's not the only Gamecube controller for Switch on sale right now, though - there's plenty of designs to choose from. For example, the silver version has been discounted to $39.99 and a special Pikachu edition is just $35.99 (a saving of $14 overall).
We've had the chance to go hands-on with a couple of PowerA controllers, and they're great devices with accurate, responsive controls. Although they're not as good as the official Nintendo Switch Pro Controller, they're also one hell of a lot cheaper. Throw in this retro aesthetic and you've got a winning combination on your hands.
