    The Wii U pro controller


    The Wii U is a new video game console by Nintendo, and the successor of the Wii, a gaming console that hit store shelves in 2006. Wii battles with the PlayStation 3 and the Xbox 360.

    The Wii U has a new controller called the GamePad. It uses tablet devices and traditional gaming controllers. The GamePad has a touchscreen. Also it allows the player to continue the game on the GamePad’s touch screen even when the television is not on. The GamePad also features a Near Field Communication chip which makes it possible for users to import content from supported cards. At E3, Nintendo unveiled a second controller called as the Wii U Pro Controller.

    The Wii U Pro Controller has a traditional gamepad designed for those hardcore gamers. It does not have the touchscreen from GamePad, and features two analog sticks. With Wii U Pro Controller, the company can definitely compete more and attract current customers of Sony’s and Microsoft’s products. The Pro Controller is so similar to Xbox 360′s controller that Microsoft has a problem with it now.

    “I think their Pro Controller makes a lot of sense with the platform they’ve built,” Microsoft’s Phil Spencer told website Games Industry. “They are building a platform that is effectively a 360 when you think of graphical capability.”

    The Wii U has a hardware that is essentially as good as Xbox 360, in fact it is so similar that Microsoft now believes it will be easy for third party game developers to port their existing games on Xbox 360 to Wii U.

    “Now they are really making an on-ramp for the back catalog of games that are on 360,” he added. “It is easy for those games to move over to the Wii U. They’ve moved the buttons around, and they’ve made a controller that feels familiar for 360 gamers, so I get why they are putting those pieces together.”

    If that’s what is cooking at Nintendo, it’s very smart on their part and the console can get ports of fresh games that will be launching on Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3, though the graphics might not be in par with its counterparts. Also, Microsoft and Sony haven’t shown how their next-generation controller is going to be like, but wouldn’t it be nice if the controller design was synchronized between between all the home console makers? It would make playing multi platform games so much easier and fun.
