I love this controller has it gives an alternative for gamers who want a more traditional gaming experience...this controller in my opinion should come with the console when purchased...

I'm of the opinion that Nintendo should release two versions of Wii U, one that includes the tablet controller, and a cheaper one that just has the pro controller. That way, people who aren't interested in the tablet controller can still get the system, but also save some money.

Dang, I'm loving that patented D-Pad on that controller. Nintendo's D-Pad is always beast for fighting games. Cant wait to see a Smash Brother game on the Wii U.

The d-pad was good when it was released on the snes. I don't remember a good d-pad on any nintendo devices after that.

Sony's DS2 pad with touch sensitivity was alot better for fighting games to be really honest.

Nintendo has their D-Pad patented. I have always found their D-Pad to be the best for my own personal preference when it comes to fighting games. I don't see how Sony's D-Pad would even work on some games, its not even fully connected.

I guess we all have our own opinions though.

Since I'm used to the Xbox 360 controller I don't like that the buttons are under the joy stick

While interested I am kind of worried to see how I can adapt to the face buttons being under the thumbstick.

Strange but I still really wanna try it.

Why does everyone go out of their way to state how this vanilla design, mediocre ergonomics controller is so great... you have to pay extra for it, I thought?

What is so great, comparatively, next to other controllers?
