E3 2011: Detailed impressions of the Wii U controller

Bitmob's Dan Hsu got his hands on the controller shortly after Nintendo's E3 presentation. He says that the controller is light, some buttons feel cheap, and the screen is impressively crisp.

The story is too old to be commented.

It sounds pretty cool technically, but I still can't see playing a high-execution title like a fighter. More reason to buy the Tatsunoko vs. Capcom stick, I guess.

Fighters are meant to be played on a fight stick anyway

I cant even see myself playing a fighter game on a common console controller. That's what arcade sticks were made to.

At least it has four face buttons and four shoulder buttons... Enough for most games.

Thank god for 4 shoulder buttons. First thought there were only two.

Reminds me of the Game Gear.

Does it take 6 double A batteries?

So, the controller for the next Wii is also the replacement for the DS?

Seems pretty interesting...A lot more straightforward than the Wii remote at least (in a good way, as in, I can actually see myself playing *real* games with it).
