who cares about rumble ? were you being sarcastic ?

What if it's the best rumble but a broken controller ?

Then rumble doesn't matter at all.....so there for rumble doesn't really matter at all.

That is like getting served the best meal of your life but complaining about the Brand of salt that is in the shaker.

I'll pick this up with my wiiu, but I wish it wasn't so expensive.

I didn't like it when I used it..... being used to the 360 controller, I felt like the buttons should be where the right analog stick is and vice versa...

having the buttons across from the left stick is a must... especially when you're only using the right stick to typically change camera angles in most fps games....

yeah its a pathetic controller design, they stole the 360's controller and flipped the buttons. flipping the buttons was their worst mistake, its near unusuable with that.

I cant even imagine how hard battling the camera in ninja gaiden 3 will be on the wii-u with this crappy controller

What do you mean flipped the buttons?

Also, the analog stick placement of the 360 controller was first copied from the gamecube. The face buttons of the 360, and the PS1 are the same as the Super Nintendo, and shoulder buttons... also Super Nintendo. The analog triggers... also Gamecube. Rumble/analog stick goes to N64, Though Nights into Dreams had an analog stick, it wasn't really used in the way that the N64 came to use it.

Dual analogs/dual rumble in general.... points go to Sony.

As for the shape.... general ergonomics kind of dictate that.

This should be included with the console!

It is in Europe!In Europe and UK the pro controller comes bundle on the Zombi U console pack.

This looks like the way the xbox controller should look, instead of the lop sided control sticks, xbox controller looks like the eyes ona picasso painting, and this coming from someone who has no intention to buy a wii u.

I have had a chance to hold this controller and it is pretty decent. It does however feel cheap and the buttons don't feel right to me for some reason. Really don't like the button layout compared the the 360 and PS3.

Hope it doesn't suck. The Wii Pro Controller sucked and felt really cheap. For $50 it should be a quality controller, especially with the retail label "pro controller".

The Wii Classic controller had to be plugged into the Wiimote in order to work. It was just a hunk of plastic with some minor tech that borrowed inputs from the Wiimote. This new controller doesn't plug into the Wii U gamepad and is pretty much an independent controller. They must have kept it light to make sure that kids can use it.
Raider69  +   942d ago
The made the layout of the controller that way because the gamepad haves the same layout!That way it will be easy to adapt to the two controllers the same way.
fourtwenty2009  +   942d ago
Probably also to avoid some patent issues in the layout design.
