CVG - With the announcement of the Pro Controller for the Wii U, I instantly thought that it would be a good thing. But then I got thinking, isn't it a bit of a cop out for developers? I can see them taking the easy way out and just developing for the pro controller, which, in turn, will take away from the Wii U's main attraction, the GamePad. This could also mean that there'll be a lack of innovation in third-party support for it.
Look at the good Wii third-party support. Games such as Zack and Wiki, No More Heroes and Sonic Colours. All perfect examples of a developer getting to grips with the Wii and making really good games, but I can't see developers doing that now they have an easy way out.
