Are you that type of gamer who prefers variety on using controllers? Then you might want to consider getting yourself a Cyber Gadget Gyro Controller Pro.

Although it’s slightly expensive than the upcoming 8BitDo Pro 2 controller, you’ll get the option to customize the physical buttons and not just tinkering controller software.
Customize to your heart’s content
This controller features an accelerometer for motion-sensing Switch games that support it. It also has a detachable left side module in which you can swap between a D-Pad and a joystick depending on your preference.
Whether you want the D-Pad located near the controller grip similar to an Xbox controller or if you’re a PlayStation user and you prefer analog joysticks, you can switch it anytime so you don’t get stuck with you’re current layout.
The analog joysticks also come in a lot of sizes so you’re presented with a lot of options. You are also presented with a circular pad as an alternative to the D-pad.
The Gyro Controller Pro has become so generous in customizations that they even included four paddle buttons that you can put at the back of the controller if you want to further expand your input mapping.
Currently, the Gyro Controller Pro supports the following platforms:
- Retro Freak
- Nintendo Switch
You can configure the controller on the PC via the Windows 8/10 XInput/DirectInput format. It also supports Bluetooth connectivity for both the Switch and the PC.
One downside is that there might be some games that are not compatible yet such as Pokemon Let’s Go! Pikachu/Eevee and Super Mario Party.
For the whole month of April, the online shop is conducting a campaign for a chance to receive freebies and you can see the mechanics on their website.
Get this modular Gyro Controller Pro for only $70 and save more instead of buying separate gamepads that will cost you more and doesn’t give you the option to physically customize the buttons.
