I'm one of the people that got convinced to pre-order the controller in the first place. Here's to hoping it's worth it!

I wonder if this is for the Black Pro controller only. I take it most people want to match the Pro controller with the colour of their console.

I think it's actually for both of them at amazon, but GameStop still has them though. I can't wait for the 18th though!

Yea i know, this is gonna be a great holiday season, been waiting on this nintendo console for years now, finally nintendo fans will be gaming in HD and then u add the gamepad on top of that, Nintendo have done it again.

ugh, i dont want to sound like a troll but when i see people saying "they've done it again" before the console has even been released, kind of reminds of how apples fans act towards new devices... albeit nintendo doesnt release a new system every year like apple, nintendo really didnt re-invent the wheel here...

ps i commented to point out schwaks amusing comment, not to bash on the wii u (just incase my little comments makes anybody red in the face)

2 weeks? ROFL...where's Cartman?

Don't freeze yourself or you might have to wait a few months.

Not surprised this sold out.

This controller looks even MORE ergonomic then the 360 gamepad. With BOTH analog sticks being in the natural position.

Was never going to get a Wii:U due to the official gamepad (built in touch screen) being non-ergonomic and just unnatural for core games.

This controller existing, has peaked my interest again.

A proper gamepad is very important when it comes to gaming.

Lets just hope Wii:U delivers CORE games, that aren't already on 360/PS3

waste of money. Just use the pad, which has the same button layout. What, 1 extra pound is too heavy for you? couple inches giving you workout? lmao please

Some people have to be able to reach the buttons quickly. Hence the name "pro" controller. Not "kiddie" controller. The shape is a big part of it, and with WiiU's square shape, it'll never be good if you need to hit buttons quickly, your hands will have to move too much.

@jon123, Go bash another wiiU part, some people are hyped for the wiiU, and did u just feel like bashing my comment with yours and say nothing about the article in question?
you just sound and look like what you dident want to sound and look like im afraid.

And yes you are correct in what you say , just like insecure fanboys have the wiiU dead and buried before its even out

WiiU is gonna crush all current consoles when all is said and done

haha wow, woah there buddy, relax, once again i was not bashing the wii u. pretty amusing how defensive you get about the wii u, i looked at your comment history, looks to me your on nintendos sack haha.

and yes i only commented about your comment, because its so funny! and no, i did not bother to read the article.

although i like the wii u, i dont plan on ever buying one.and you something your a pretty funny person, i like how you ended you last comment by saying it will crush all current consoles, looks to me with so many amazing releases coming to the 360 and ps3, wii u will probably only do as good as that zombie game is maybe until good games start coming out for it, which will probably take a year or two and by that time, the next generation of consoles from microsoft and sony will by out, leaving your precious wii u obsolete....
