    Re: News - Nintendo Wii U controller gets last minute adjustments

    The controllers seem strange to me, I like that the older ones will work with the new Wii. I suspect I'll try to get my parents to trade theirs in, if possible, so it can be used to play DVDs and stream content from the internet with decent quality, something that is unfortunately lacking with the current Wii.

    I hope the device is as good a price as the Wii was.

    The new design has analogue sticks like the Wii nunchuck. Let's hope the console has better games than the Wii. Let's face it, 3DS games does....

    Re: News - Nintendo Wii U controller gets last minute adjustments

    What concerns me is that the controllers look rather expensive, and most Nintendo games are boring to play alone, so by the time you add 3x controllers to the price of your launch bundle it's going to be quite expensive.

    I sold my Wii not long after getting it cos the games were just pants, once I'd done Mario Kart Wii there was little else left that I could be bothered with so this doesn't grab me much. Got a PC, got a Vita, still have a DS Lite...

    Re: News - Nintendo Wii U controller gets last minute adjustments

    Like others I own a Wii but it continues to gather dust. It was more of a novelty item rather than a long-term gaming solution and this controller seems to be going down a similar path. Nintendo's appeal to a wider audience obviously brought them success but for avid gamers I can't see them taking this console/accessories seriously.

    Thank heavens, the circle pads are horrible and in no way a substitute for a real analog stick.
