Saw one at walmart and seen the price tag. Damn that's alot for a controller! I think PS3 dual shocks go for 40 or so. Is it because of all the motion sensing crap in them? I could almost buy a new game for that much.

These days, all the kids are playing M rated games while the adults are lining up for Pokemon. Which game is a kid's game now?

Wow guess i haven't bought a new controller in a while. I remember when those things were 15 bucks.
I shudder to think what a new Wii U gamepad would cost.

There's 3rd party pro controllers that are cheaper but I guess they have compatibility issues so you're best sticking with the official controller. I got my pro through newegg when they were running a $12 off coupon a few months back but I like the controller definitely worth the $38 to me.

Why does the pic have a time stamp of 2011?

You're shocked at three month old controllers being sold for full price? Hell, even the Wii U Pro controllers are $5 USD plus cheaper than the competing consoles controllers were when they first launched!

As far as I know you can't buy a new Wii U Gamepad.
