Why! The gamepro controller looks like an xbox controller except they swaped the right analog stick with the four main buttons.


And that's a bad thing?

Yes, yes it is! Why swap the right analog stick with the buttons it's dumb.

...have you actually tried it?

You're just blindly saying "wah its dum!"

...how is it any "dumber" than PS3 stick placement?

Pro controller is a 360 controller (only with an actual dpad) and PS3's symmetric sticks. Cool.

GameFAQS users are far too sensitive.

It's actually quite comfortable. Like the DS3, except your hands don't get cramped when using both analogs.

Nintendo can't make good controllers? That's a new one. I've owned every Nintendo console ever (and most others, for that matter) and while some controllers have been better than others, they've all been good.

I'm surprised that Nintendo, of all companies, chose to follow another company's controller design so closely for the Wii U Pro Controller, but the 360 controller a good controller, so why not? It doesn't mean that Nintendo aren't capable of designing good controllers (which they've been doing their entire career as a system manufacturer).

And the XBOX controller looks like a Playstation controller with the D-Pad and left analog stick swapped. And a Playstation is an SNES controller with extra shoulder buttons and anologue sticks. And an SNES controller is an NES controller with two more face buttons and shoulder buttons.

The first Smash 64 was about a kid using his imagination. In Brawl, that kid is God.

Knightime X was a cool guy until he was exposed to GameFAQS radiation. He'll never be the same again!

NES controller dug into your hand like it was looking for gold.
N64 controller was built for a three armed person with double-jointed fingers.
Gamecube controller was built for the mentally disabled who were confused by having the face buttons all be the same size.
Wii controller was built to be swung around like a ninny.
