Hi Barrie,



Most of these questions are answered more in-depth in the article, but in
short:



Can you use a standard controller simultaneously? Yes

Can you connect switches to act as the thumb-sticks (I'm guessing so)? Yes

How do you set-up the different profiles and activate them? Switch Activated


USA only, or being sold overseas? Both eventually

Can you use the switch box as a controller in its own right? Yes

Video planned? I'll post the unveiling soon, there were approximately a
dozen reporters at the unveiling taking pics/video. Joystiq was particularly
interested. More news soon.

Looks great price wise, but I can't quite understand how it all works from
the photos. Can you use a standard controller simultaneously? Can you
connect switches to act as the thumb-sticks (I'm guessing so)? How do you
set-up the different profiles and activate them? USA only, or being sold
overseas? Can you use the switch box as a controller in its own right? Video
planned?



Be good to add it to the list:

great to have more choice.
