Just to put an end to complaints about the controller, I'm making a post explaining why it isn't bad as everyone says. I'm not saying it's perfect, but maybe this post will change your mind and give you a bit more faith in the final product. 1. The controller looks so uncomfortable! This is possibly the only legitimate claim relating to the controller. Although the controller doesn't use the most ergonomic design, there are a few things that need to be considered. One is that the screen is obviously meant to resemble a tablet, so the games that only use the touch screen shouldn't have issues. However, playing with all the buttons may very well be uncomfortable. Let's wait until it comes out to decide since it might (But probably won't) change. 2. It looks so heavy! People who have played it say it weighs as much as the Ipad. So unless you hold the controller above your head (All 2 of you) weight should be a non-issue. It isn't heavy enough to make a huge difference. 3. It'll cost a fortune! Maybe, but not as much as you think. Even though the controller gives the illusion you're playing a portable console, that isn't the case at all. The Wii U streams all of the data to the controller, so the only components that will be included are the stuff that's already in the Wii remote (Camera, gyroscopes, etc.) in addition to a large screen in the center. I'll take a guess that the controller should be no more than $80. And yes, the wii remote does have a camera in it. Look it up. 4. The analog sticks are in terrible places. This is something you'll just have to get used to. I understand it's a questionable design choice on Nintendo's part, and I'm not a big fan of it either, so we'll just have to wait and see. 5. The controller is ugly! I'll be honest, if you're basing your opinion of the machine based on how the controller looks rather than functions, I would recommended buying another video game console. Like a Super Nintendo. That had nice controllers. Another thing that people need to realize is that the console is not being released for a while, so the final controller could look and feel different than it does now. Although the controllers seem radically different from what we've seen, it isn't all that much different in reality. Just wait until you try the final thing to pass judgement, because right now it could go either way. If you have a complaint I didn't list here, I'd be happy to address it.
