Okay, you're insane.

The Wii U's D-pad is poorly engineed in construction. Nintendo could have done better but that's just how they do things.

The gamepad has the best D-pad I've ever used. It's responsive, never registers incorrectly, has the right size, has a good firm feel without being clicky like the 3DS pad.... I can't imagine it being any better. Try playing an SNES game with it and tell me it's poorly designed.

Who cares if it wobbles a little bit in it's casing? All Nintendo D pads have done this. The construction has not changed since the NES. See for yourself:
Untitled

That particular image is the CCpro, but all Nintendo controllers use an identical D-pad design. The D-pad itself sits on a rubber mat with 4 contacts built into it- the gray dot in the center of the mat is actually a plastic bump on the bottom of the D-pad that protrudes through. The mat is secured in place on the circuit board by a hook, but the D pad has some freedom to rotate a few mm on top of it. It doesn't impact the performance of the pad at all, the contacts will still press down exactly where they should.

That's how much the PS3 and Xbox 360 controllers cost about, and those are last gen now(for the most part), so I don't get how that surprises you.
GameStop sells Microsoft made used Xbox 360 controllers for $45, and Sony made used PS3 controllers are $43.
I got a new controller for a new console for less than a new or used one for older consoles.

That's not a bad price. I bought a black one on launch day, and I didn't need or want to return it. I actually bought the white one because my bro and cousin play Sonic online with me. I was using a Wii classic controller pro prior, because he refused to use any other controller.

@SCAR392 My 360 was an old model, so it red ringed before I had the chance to consider buying controllers. I've never bought a PS3, but I've played it and that screwy Dualshock 3 controller doesn't seem worth it.

I have a wii classic controller pro, is it realy worth to buy a pro controller? I dont care so much about the wii remote other than it is a little bit irritating but not that irritating that I want to buy a new controller. Do I need the pro controller specificly for some wii U games? Is the controll sticks clickable? Any other features that the wii CCP dosent have?

You don't NEED it. Every Wii U game works with the gamepad, so it's not necessary. Also, any Wii game, including VC games, that worked with the Classic Controller or Classic Controller Pro will continue to work with that controller on the Wii U. So you don't NEED it.

It is nice to have though. It doesn't work for every game, but for the games that it does work with, it's exactly like the gamepad. It's set up exactly the same way and has all of the same buttons (minus the screen of course). The sticks are clickable just like the gamepad. It's got a much longer battery life, and some people find it more comfortable (although I absolutely love the gamepad). I only use the pro controller for VC games and Monster Hunter, although I'm sure I'll use it a lot more in the future.

Just out of curiosity, how does the text chat in Monster Hunter work if your playing on the pro controller. I assumed that you still type out the messages on the Gamepad screen, but is that true?

Boo! I'm a ghost.

Nope - Wii U controllers both GamePad and Pro Controller aren't supported - I doubt they would add that in the future

Hello! Sorry to invade the thread like this and bump it, but I have a question that I don't think it justifies making a whole thread about so I wanted to ask here. It's a little stupid question, but yeah. You see, I just received my Pro Controller (bought it online) today, but when I turned it on and synced it, it only stayed a minute or so and then it turned off, is that normal? I know that electronics don't come fully charged, but they come half-charged. Any help, guys?

Well I know this may seem like an obvious solution...but did you try charging it? If you have a red light when you turn on your pro controller on, that means it needs to be charged (especially if the light is blinking). Orange light means it's charging, and no light means that it has a good amount of charge.

Oh, I did charge it. I just had a suspicion that it either has been used or defective, so wanted to know if others got charged or not.
