    Look at these pictures, is this fake or genuine Pro controller?
    Just want to be sure before purchase?

    This is why I don't buy things *too* cheap online.

    Earth, bro-dude.
    Does the Japanese Wii U Pro Controller have a different sticker than a U.S. controller?

    Well, I'm going to say they look 82% real. Leaving room for doubt, though. You might have to go deeper and check the battery and even as far as checking the weight.

    I just noticed the FCC ID starts with POO. Was the Wii U a shitty joke by Nintendo?

    I have a Wii U Pro Controller too, and the battery pack lid has a cross slot screw. It wouldn't even make sense that Nintendo didn't want you to open your battery pack because a battery is special waste and should be disposed separately.

    No. Wii U Pro controllers were notorious for coming with long cables. The one that came with mine is 6'-10'. I can't remember exactly.
