The Wii U officially launched yesterday and among the top concerns is the strange rattling sound made by shaking the Wii U GamePad.
It sounds like the buttons but he did press it in so I don't know. Weird. I don't think it will be a default nd could break the controller but it does make the controller seem cheaper than it should be
then they should just open it and trace back to where the sound is. i for one would not want to cause the gamepad to die from shaken controller syndrom.
I hadn't heard about this. Thanks for letting us know!
Lol thats not a rattle, thats the build in Rumble feature.
The stylus rattles more than anything. It fits loosely. No big deal though.
Mine does this as well. Didn't occur to me til watching this video to try removing the stylus and then shaking it. I notice his is in in the clip.
If it is the stylus...i'll laugh!
its the buttons. how are garbage articles like this even on this website
My ps 2 controllers used to rattle like anything never seemed to both much it could be anything from the rumble motors to the motion sensors or just button clanking, seriously this is new nowadays?
I didnt know that we have to shake the pad like that when gaming!I Never did that kind of destroying shake with any gamepad on any game,its not natural unless people want to destroy the pad!The pad is not to be used or shake like a par of maracas !
You my friend must have never played lair.Now on topic things rattle take it apart an see what it is if you really that worried.
It's just the buttons rattling against the case when you shake it. Buttons seem pretty solid when pressing them though so it should be as concerning as this guy is saying.
It's gotta be the ABXY buttons. They sit on top of a circuit board underneath. When you press the button, it engages the actual button underneath on the board. But they just sit on top of one another, so there is a little movement to be had. I am sure that is what the rattle is.
The new game pad can also be used as a wii mote in a sense where you can move it around. There is most likely some sort of tracking ball inside that detects which direction you tilt the game pad. (also known as a Gyrosensor) So stop shaking it before you break the damn thing.
If you turn the gamepad upside down you can watch all the buttons fall a little. So all the buttons will make noise if turn it gamepad upside down or shake it hard. No big deal though.
