    This is cool, but I have to say I'd be super excited if some innovative hacker could figure out how to pair an xbox one bluetooth controller with the Nintendo Switch instead of the Nintendo pro controller (I just like the feel of it better as a controller)

    The Xbone Bluetooth controller paired and worked with Steam's beta Xbox controller support until a recent firmware update.

    I suspect Microsoft got wind that the controller wasn't a Windows 10 exclusive device anymore, and stepped in to ruin it for everyone.

    gkarris – Nintendo does sell a Joy-Con Grip that charges Joy-Cons via USB-C. And a few third parties are doing similar things.

    Could someone with the Pro controller see if it works together with Mac's and the AppleTV4 especially? Because then I think I will pick one up before actually getting a Switch.. 8)
