First Impressions: Wii U Pro Controller - NintendoLife

"We go hands on with one of the most important Wii U accessories
With games like Bayonetta 2 and Call of Duty: Black Ops 2 blazing a trail to the Wii U very soon, the need for a decent 'traditional' joypad is obvious. Nintendo is making sure 'core' games will play as well as possible by producing the Wii U Pro Controller, a device which boasts an uncanny resemblance to the Xbox 360 pad.", writes NintendoLife. (Industry, Wii U)

That weak rumble pisses me off.. When i get a wii u, i know ill be using this more than the pad for the games i like.. Hows the rumble in the pad anyway? i hope its significantly more powerful than this..
PopRocks359  +   1068d ago
The Gamepad is larger so I assume the rumble is more powerful. The rumble thing is not that big of an issue anyway as long as it's there otherwise we'll have another retarded fiasco like the one involving rumble in the PS2 controllers. Yeah, that stupidity was fun.

I hated the PS3 six axis controllers at first when there was no rumble in em.. I had to import a dual shock when they hit japan cuz it brings the games to life.. As long as its there, im sure it will be fine.. The wiimote rumble isnt too powerful & using the classic control doesnt even have it so its better than nothing i suppose

My main issue with the original PS3 pad was the weight. It was too light, the added rumble weights gave it a better feel.

Either way, I don't think it needs to be full on, as long as you get they get the sensation right.

It dual rumble and very effective i think i read it somewhere ?

I'm going to assume the low-rumble is for those people, like me, who constantly have to lay their controller down to do daddy/whatever stuff.

if its a multiplayer game and i can't pause it, i'll have to lay it down and i often forget to put my PS3 controller on a soft surface. the rumble scoots my controller off the table and the sound of a controller dropping is awful.

but that's just me justifying the low-vibe controller.

I agree, the DS3 was so much better than the sixaxis, and I don't even use rumble.
It just felt so much better in the hands with that extra weight.

Too many good games coming out this holiday season for me to even consider buying a wii u.
