Why Deactivate HD Rumble?

One of the main reasons people don’t like high-definition noise is because it is not standard for all games. Therefore, while the vibration function can be a cool additional feature that can enhance the experience of a game, it can also be another distracting feature.

We know the strong resonance of several games in key battles. In addition, users of aftermarket controllers have reported problems with their gyroscope sensors in games with active vibrations.

For users who want to extend the playback time of Switch portable devices, disabling HD Rumble can extend battery life.
