    Wish they didn't go with the 3ds analog... I feel it isn't 100% compared to the xb360 / ps3 / wii-nunchuck analog. It's okay tho.

    Circle pad is a pain to use, it hurts my thumb after a while.

    I heard the Wii U circle pad is better than the 3DS.

    The circle pad didn't pose any problems for me. I'm fine with it on the Wii U actually.

    As long as its not the Vita's or PSP, I'm good

    Fuck, the new vita sticks feel like they're going to pop off.

    Gamecube Controller Analogue sticks would've been a lot better
    it's not like the sticks would be in the way of the controller closing since it's not a clamshell design.

    Keep in mind that the design is constantly changing and that no one knows what the system will look like.
    And the Wii U will be compatible with both Classic Controllers (Yes they have analog shoulder triggers) and Wiimotes, hopefully it will also have it's own wireless controller for
    multi player and new gamers convenience.

    I thought the topic was about the Wii U analogue stick/circle pad, not Sony.

    Looks off-topic coming into this thread saying how the PSP/Vita analogue sticks suck.

    Not as much as the person that started flame baiting. Once again, you came into here trying to start something with me, and succeeded

    Nobody has a Wii U controller in front of them right now, so people are talking about their experiences with similar technology on other platforms.

    Looking at the thread so far, I'd suggest re-reading your replies and then replying to this thread.. If someone flame baits your reply, you could start wondering why. It's pretty apparent. Also inb4: Nintendo copied the circle pad from the PSP Go! OMGZ!

    Saying something is one things, but telling the reasons why something sucks is another. This is something that happens to be missing in many replies in general..

    OT: What I'm waiting for is something that is easy to use and something that can be used for a few hours without stopping. I don't have the time to play every day 30 mins, but I may have time to play for a few hours here and there. Not all controllers are made for this kind of gaming :I

    EDIT: Also power level just about 900!

    I would really prefer an analog stick. I cannot see how the circle pad is superior unless I'm missing something.

    I can understand the use of sliders on the 3DS - the console is a clamshell and the lid requires the nub to be as flat as possible. On the WiiU though it just looks as if they ordered a whole bunch of those sliders and now have to get rid of their stock.

    I'll be perfectly honest, *nothing* justifies their use on the WiiU controller, at all. They're less pleasant to use, they tire the thumbs quicker and they prevent Nintendo from putting a button under it, effectively cutting 2 buttons from the controller. It's a stupid choice, it's purely stylistic and I will complain about it as soon as I get a WiiU anyways. :creep:

    Hope the final product has analog sticks again... Much better imo.

    I'm not sure I understand what you're saying. What's the operating word? The circle pad is as analog as an analog stick. Maybe you meant to highlight the stick part instead?
