    There was a recent patent suggesting that the Wii U analog sticks will poke out, well a picture has been leaked by a QA tester on Twitter.
    This may or may not be the final product for E3 2012.

    I think it looks a lot better and nicer to hold, especially the + and - buttons.
    What do you all think?

    Too much plastic and/or a too small screen.

    B-)

    I'm sure that this isn't the final version, Nintendo is very secretive and are according to rumors still holding off many key features and info until the final E3 reveal.


    If it does what it's supposed to and comes in either blue or black I couldn't care less. I don't know why everyone is imagining it to be like the iPad in size.

    Real analog sticks.

    Love it.

    Position wise.

    Reminds me of CPP.

    I've just hugged my Xbox 360 controller after seeing that. The positioning of the analog sticks look terribly uncumbersome.

    What's at the top there? A DSi/3DS charger cord?

    Honestly, it looks good to me...
    They could shrink the borders a bit, to gain better access to the touchscreen.
    I can imagine holding it and the positions doesn't seem that bad.

    Lots of people are saying the same.

    Would be nice to just have one universal charger for Nintendo devices (would prefer USB but hey ho!). It'll probably come with a docking cradle or whatever to charge but it would be great to still charge this while playing.

    Between insane and insecure
    Why does it have to be so big and ugly?
    I was really hoping that controller they showed at E3 was a joke and they weren't going to go through with it.

    There's no reason to think that it isn't USB since the last E3 Wii U model had two front ports, either way you could just buy one of those retractable DSi/3DS to USB chargers from ebay or something.
    Also I doubt you wouldn't be able to charge and play at the same time.
