Forums - Nintendo Discussion - New Switch Controller Promises Voice Chat Without The App

PDP has announced their new Faceoff Deluxe+ Audio Wired Controller for Nintendo Switch, which should let players plug headphones in for online chat.

It'll be available for pre-order this May and launch in the summer.

So it's like Nintendo listened to us complain about Switch voice chat needing a smartphone app, but got someone else to fix the problem for them. Yeah.

Wired? Blech.



I'll keep my eyes on this. Still a ways to go for a potential purchase. Maybe local save backups next?......

-edit. Wait. It's a wired controller?.....What is this? The time of Charlemagne?

People do all kinds of things. Do you know how many times I've smoked crack? Take a guess.....But TWO fuckin' wires? I might be crazy but I ain't no fool. By the way, if you ever get the chance to try crack, give it a shot. Amazing. Don't believe all the negative hype. Just, don't overdo it or make it anything more than a weekend thing in your youth and you'll be fine. Oh, and never throw your girlfriend out of a moving car.

was a shame the way voice chat was handled on the Switch, just that people are still under the impression that it's not possible without some phone app... I mean if you chuck any usb or phone type headset into the Switch you can play fortnite and talk to your team, no need for anything other than the game and a headset with a mic in the 3.5mm jack.



Fancy hearing me on an amateur podcast with friends gushing over one of my favourite games? https://youtu.be/1I7JfMMxhf8

Some people use wired controllers in the competitive sphere because of the lower latencies.  Myself, I prefer using wired to minimize EM radiation exposure, given that even the WHO has come out and said that EM can increase cancer risk.

When it comes to wearing headphones and how close they are positioned to your brain tissue for an extended period of time, I would highly recommend only using wired from a health standpoint.  Of course, I expect that I am in the 1% minority on this issue, not that it bothers me in the least.



It was funny seeing the splatoon players for the Splatoon NA finals a couple weeks ago use the phone all to communicate with each other xD
Very un esport thing to do.......



Pocky Lover Boy! 

Don't care for chat so *shrugs*. Good news for those who do.
