Wii U Pro Controller Review | Binary Messiah

Thatgamereviews:
"Most of the time when you hear the word 'rip-off' you associate it with something negative, but in the case of the Wii U Pro Controller this is not true. Sure, it may borrow heavily from the Xbox 360 controller but that is certainly not a bad thing. It’s obviously made for more-hardcore gamers and works well with games such as Injustice and Black Ops 2. For Black Ops 2 it’s actually my preferred method of playing." (Wii U) 8/10

xbox 360 controller copied from Nintendo, look at all nintendo's previous controllers. Apart from that, good review.

The 360 controller seemingly borrows from Nintendo and Sega. Dreamcast had shoulder triggers before the original Xbox. If anything, Nintendo took their own gamepad design and modernized it.

I like this controller better than the 360 one, as the joysticks are where they should be, both on top near your thumbs!The battery life is amazing at 80 hours.The only flaw is no headphone jack....hopefully they make an update to this controller in the future and add that in.

I really like the controller to but I wish it was triggers rather than buttons on the bottom left and right of the back as for racing games they are better. I still find the 360 controller better for my hands but I do like the Pro on my WiiU. Im also looking forward to trying the one and DS4 controllers as I have not liked a single DS controller as they have been to small but this one looks bigger and the One controller looks to improve over the 360 controller again.

Do these companies, MS, Sony, Nintendo have trademarks of the positioning of the twin sticks or something?

xbox pad = left thumb stick top, right thumb stick bottom
DS4 = left thumb stick bottom, right thumb stick bottom
Wii U Pro = left thumb stick top, right thumb stick top

Kind of weird that none of them have a similar layout on the sticks.

I don't think it's trademarked, i've seen third party controllers with all of the above so i don't think it would be. Nintendo and xbox had the same configuration during the sixth gen. I guess nintendo figured if one stick is comfortable that way why not put both that way.

I was honestly surprised and thought it would be weird having the analog sticks at the top; but so far I have fallen in love with the controller! More so than my classic controller pro.
