Wii U controller is extremely comfortable.

It's up there for me with the gamecube controller and the xbox 360 controller in terms of comfort.  What say you SW?

I agree, I was skeptical of it but then I tried it out at a kiosk at walmart and the thing felt pretty damn good but no games, so looool

The face buttons sitting below the right stick kind of screws things up.

Yeah, because multiplatform games and pretentious independent titles only matter when discussing the PC's lack of of anything worthwhile. Even then, it still has some good exclusives and many more on the way. It's only been three months. Give it a break.

I picked up a Wii U a few days ago.  I haven't enjoyed gaming this much in awhile.  The feel of the system is a lot of fun.  Controller feels great hours into games.

 

It'll get games, i'm not worried.  Every system that's launched lately hasn't had a stellar opening lineup.

Felt kind of awkward for me, but I've only tried at in-store demos.

Either way, the price of a Wii U includes the cost of a Pro controller for me. :>

Slashkice

 

If you get to use one out of the store it's great.  It feels natural in your hands, which is suprising because of its' size.

One of the nice things about the gamepad is that the bigger size doesn't cramp your hands.

Awkward at first, but it grows on you.  Not a poorly designed controller but still waiting on the gameplay need for the screen.

Pro controller, however, is my least favorite between 360/PS3/Wii U.  And after seeing the PS4 controller, I doubt it'll move up in that ranking.

Too bad the controller is a bad gimmick that will be relegated to a mini map that wastes what little processing power the Wii U has.

Yeah, it's actually not only passably comfortable, but pretty exceptional, really.

Just wish it had actual triggers and it would probably be my favorite console controller, even as just a traditional gamepad.

Now I just wish it had more than three worthwhile games to play on lol.

That's because controllers suck in general. After playing ZombiU on the WiiU controller though, I give it a big meh.

What is your point? All he is saying that he has 5 games that he likes on the console. What is the score has to do with anything?

But its more comfortable than a PS3 controller and has better D-Pad, analogs and back buttons.

Funny, I found the right analog stick at the top to far more natural than having them at the bottom. Dualshock 3 gives me cramps and 360 controller feels awkward to aim with.

Honestly not a fan. I like the wiimote/nunchuck more. I like being able to rest my hands anywhere, not forced to hold them in one position.

I think a lot of people would disagree, the 360 controller is really nice in the hand, if only its dpad wasn't so bad, i hear Nintendos patent ended so maybe next consoles will have a good dpad.
