Controller gone bad. Need new one.

Do yourself a favor and go try the DS4. It works 100% wireless over blue tooth and unlike using the DS3...this works.

You still need software but the ONLY thing you need to do is open it and close it. You don't need to mess with any settings. It just works.

Get a recent Logitech gamepad then. They support both DirectInput and XInput.

I'm a little wary of Logitech. I found out the sticking X button in my controller is due to a shoddy rubber band fixture, so I'm concerned their other controllers might have the same issue.

Nah, they traded up for wireless that has a 2 CM range.
If you are more than 2 centimetres away it will randomly cut out and keep pressing the same analog direction.

DS4 doesn't have a very good battery life (do you play more than 5-6 hours straight that often, though?) but it fits your other needs. Works wirelessly and can register as a 360 controller, and the d-pad (and rest of the controller) is of good quality.

I don't play that long, no, but it can be a hassle to have to plug it in every day. The Logitech I have, for all its faults, has only needed new batteries twice in the years I've had it. It's something I need to take into consideration, is all.

The Wii U Pro lacks analog triggers. It might not matter for you, but it's something to note.

True, analog triggers are nice, though right now I'm not playing something that uses them. I might in the future, though.

Wired Xbox 360 controller is what I used. Plug and play, good quality, and decently priced.
