Theres absolutely no reason why Nintendo can't offer the ability to purchase a replacement controller. It's another moronic decision by a dimwitted company.


You know damn good and well everyone and their grandma will try to copy wii u or mod the controller in someway.

I think Nintendo is waiting for ps4 and 720 to be released before they make it for sale

My original controllers of Wii, PS3, and 360 all still work. I'm not too worried about my Wii U one.


My NES controllers still work, so I'm certainly confident with Nintendo's build quality

You can purchase new Gamepads direct through Nintendo.

I don't know; the only thing I've had problems with was that when a kid chews on your GameCube control stick enough, it breaks, and the 3DS L button stopped working. Other than that, everything's been fine.

It's a nintendo controller....
If it breaks on you then odds are you was actually trying to destroy it to begin with.

Nintendo stuff is built tough


This.
Don't intentionally break it and you'll be fine.

What? Nintendo does offer the ability to purchase a replacement controller, you just have to get it from Nintendo. The reason you can't walk into a GameStop and grab one is A) because they are about $170, and B) Nintendo doesn't want to confuse people into thinking they require additional controllers when, at this point, they don't.

A direct replacement is $140 from Nintendo.

Well, there you go. It is possibly cheaper from Nintendo, as the pads sold in Japan were the equivalent of $170.

Prices are usually cheaper in NA territories compared to Japan.
