Nintendo Reveals Wii U Pro Controller, Haunted by Visions of Xbox 360

Nintendo Channels Xbox 360 for Wii U Pro Controller

Wii U Pro ControllerBeyond the cool stuff we already blogged and live blogged about, Nintendo revealed a few other nuggets today. Among those things, they announced the new Xbox 360 Pro Controller for Wii U. Just going out on a limb here, I’m guessing that somebody’s been getting into the panties of somebody they maybe shouldn’t have been. On the other hand, maybe it’s for the best–the Xbox 360 controller really is the one to clone, if you’re out to clone a controller.

Still, there are some notable differences. The new Wii U Pro Controller keeps both its analog sticks on the level while the buttons are located down below. I’m not sure I like this idea, but I’ll reserve judgment until my mitts have met the plastic. On the whole, the controller looks ergonomically to be about the same as the Xbox 360 controller and should provide a good gaming experience for those who really have to stick to “traditional” controller form factors.
