They might get new stock today (28th dec) so check it out and even if it's not available on the shelf, ask the cashier of the electronic dep, they keep one or two there, was able to get 2 for me ! one per different walmart, got lucky.
Went to Walmart in Cote Vertu, Kirkland, Pincourt and Vaudreuil, all oos, they have many stock for 3rd party controllers though. Hopefully they will restock before the sales end.

Screw Walmart, this is the second time in a row screwing me over lol. First it was 5 weeks to deliver my instant pot and now employees not knowing where the stock is and not even trying. But thanks to seryph just ended up reserving online from Best Buy for $10 more, picked up at Customer Service in and out in under 5 mins.

Does anyone know if it is true that Costco is carrying Nintendo Switch Pro Controllers for $50?

If anyone's still looking, The Source has it on sale again for $59, limited stock in Newmarket in Upper Canada mall. However, I don't suggest anyone buying it. Leave that so others can price match at Toys R Us.

Either demand is insanely high or everywhere has really low stock cause it goes oos moments after sales start. Hopefully I wont have to wait til next black friday to get a deal on one.

These are 3rd party controllers, as opposed to the pro controller which is officially made by nintendo.

My friend has one of these Hori 3rd party controllers and says there is significant input lag when he plays smash ultimate

Thats a 3rd party controller, not made by Nintendo. The pro controller is made by Nintendo and has Nintendo's authenticity seal on the back of the box.

Ok so whats the difference between the 3rd party controller and this guy from ebay? I could buy this controller for $30 with a 15% discount and free shipping.
I believe a similar controller sells at Walmart for $50.

Found a review for one of these things. Not bad for ~$20.

Functionally speaking, this has no rumble and no rechargeable battery, in addition to being 3rd party. There may be other differences, but these were the deal breakers for me.

If you can find stock @ your local best buy or get one online, try and price match with walmart @ best buy for 49.96. I checked stock @ a walmart using a scan gun at my local store that most of the associates have. Have them enter the walmart number 4549659016 for the pro controller. If your lucky they usualy have 1 left in stock or more since some go missing. Take a picture showing stock and take it to best buy to price match. I have a picture but have no where to host at this time. YMMV
