I feel everything is perfect about it except for the angle of the face buttons (and the exclusion of analog Z buttons, but oh well). I think Y, X, B, and A should be slightly rotated to the left, with Y being at about the 260 position instead of the 270 position, B being at 170, etc.

I find that when I play Mario U my standard usage of the Y to run and B to jump make it awkward because I feel the A button against my thumb when I jump. If I use the X to run and the A to jump I don't have a problem. This has bugged me during other games as well, including Super Metroid.

Does anyone else notice this or am I just being too picky? Thanks in advance for the input.

Definitely not just you. I just grabbed a Wii U on the weekend, first thing I did was get a Pro controller for some VC games. Playing Super Mario World, I found that I kept accidentally nudging the A button, making Mario hop off Yoshi. Kind of annoying.

I just did a little comparison with my PS3 and 360 controllers. My thumbs naturally rest at the top of the controller which doesn't cause any problems.

The pro controller is by far the most comfortable controller I've had. I've had them all. 360 are awkward, PS1-2-3 it's just familiarity. But overall comfort Nintendo got it right. And it's light.

Just got Most Wanted U off of Amazon (shipped it to a college retreat centre in the States), and I really wish there was analog triggers on the Wii U. The triggers are serviceable for most genres, but not racing.

Wait wait wait... You play Mario U using the Pro Controller? Did they finally patch that in? Should have been supported from the start.

They did. They patched it in when New Super Luigi U got released as DLC.

F*** yeah!

Just got a Pro controller myself and was lamenting that I probably wouldn't get to use it for NSLU when it comes out on disc. Glad to hear I can use it.

My only gripe with the pro controller is the lack of headphone jack. It's a great controller otherwise
