    The reason I ask is because I've found myself having to press pretty hard on the right for characters to move to the right, like in Rayman. And after a while it starts to hurt the thumb. I can press down lightly so it clicks or whatever, but sometimes it doesn't make connection. Anybody else experiencing this?

    See I would make a dispute with Nintendo, but this is the second GamePad I got from them, and it's inconsistent enough where it'll be hard to point it out. I mean if you watch me play say Rayman Legends, you'll see sometimes that my character just stops moving and random times. It's dumb.

    I don't get it.

    @SS Try using the browser or Miiverse with the d-pad to see if you have similar problems. It's possible (although unlikely) that it's a software problem.

    You should also check this out.

    It's not broken or anything, I just have to press harder than normal to the point where it sort of starts to hurt the thumb and I'm forced to play with analog stick. Like I said, I would call nintendo, but I'd like to get concrete proof first so they don't think I'm bullshitting them.

    Nope, no problem here. Works with ease, just a little push. I do have callus on my thumbs though. Maybe you need to grow a little callus to slow the pain. I use them a lot on my 3DSes cause I play TONZ of pinball. Have to use my fingers on the gamepad on the Wii U though.

    Not broken, but damaged.

    My D-Pad works just fine playing Rayman, no discomfort.

    Yeah, you might want to get another replacement if it's bothering you, you probably got unlucky with your second replacement, it happens.

    I think I experience similar problems on my Dpad. Sometimes when pressing right while playing mario it acts a little funky, I am not sure if it is about how hard I am pressing it or if it is unintentionally getting pressed diaganol or what. The most noticable situation is when I am trying to start off a level where I have to run and Mario moves a little bit and is slow and I have to adjust how I am pressing the dpad to get him to run. I think it may have contributed to my difficulties playing punchout as well.

    I don't notice it when playing where I have to do quick taps like in Fzero but the dpad is definitely not as good as I would expect on a Nintendo controller.
