The Wii U pro controller is laughably over priced.

At least it comes with a rechargeable battery unlike the Xbox One.

Microsoft is doing that **** again, seriously?
There's a reason I never bought extra controllers for my 360...

Meanwhile, no complaints are heard about the Xbone and PS4 controllers as they cost 60 dollars for, as the TC puts it, "a normal controller."

Btw, used controllers go for about 10 dollars less if you're still adamant than Nintendo is robbing you for charging less than the competition.

40 dollars for a used controller still feels like highway ribbery.


Mmmmmmmm... highway Ribbery..... *starts drooling*

The Pro Controller is worth the $50. Way more durable and way better battery than a DS3 and probably DS4 as well.

Controllers are overpriced period. After a tear down, it was estimated that the Xbone controller costs $15 to make. Yet they want $75 for the controller and rechargeable battery. If that's not laughably overpriced, I don't know what is.

It's pretty bad. The DS4 teardown revealed $15 cost as well and it retails for $60. If the durability is anywhere near as poor as DS3, you will be buying many controllers before all is said and done as well.
