Nintendo Switch Controllers


Nintendo Switch, released on March 3, 2017, is a hybrid console that can be used as both a stationary and portable device.

Since it's release, counterfeit versions of the Switch and it's accessories have entered the market. Many of the fake versions have proved to be very hard to tell the real version from fake. Below are a few examples to help determine if your controller is authentic.

The first step is to examine overall quality. If you see any signs of inferior quality or alignment issues, it's probably fake.

Next, look at the back side of the controller. The real ones will have an embossed logo on back, like the one above.

Make sure it is a clear and distinct embossed logo. If it doesn't have one at all, like the fake above, it's fake.

Next, if the controller is semi-transparent, look at the battery. The battery should look like the one on the left. If it doesn't, it's fake.
