    Nintendo for some strange reason decided not to release the white wiiU pro controller in the Eu/UK YET so only black ones are available , I have the basic white wiiU and would ultimately prefer the white pro controller as I bought the system in order for it to match my per-existing white wiimotes this leads to my question

    Can anyone confirm if the pro-controllers region locked (I'd like to think otherwise but it is Nintendo afterall) because im thinking of ordering from Japan or USA which have these particular controllers in abundance ?

    Do you think they will eventually release these white controllers in the UK ?

    This is just a guess (but i can back it up) the gamepads have their own firmware. But the pro-controllers do not. so i would assume that the pro controllers from the US would work with the EU console. why would it matter if you would get a black pro controller anyway? it's not like your going to look at it like the gamepad
