Isn't the RRP on these £30 or is that just the price I keep seeing them at? ☺

So you got the in stock e-mail too!
Picked up mine for the same price recently using Tesco Direct and a code.

I wish the buttons were placed above the right analogue stick, not under it. I know it matches the style of the gamepad, but I still can't get used to it after many years using Cube, PS and XB controllers.

Isn't this deal for the 'Wii U Pro' controller (superior) and the link to play.com is for the 'Wii' controller (inferior)?

That's a Wii Classic Controller Pro (CCP) not the Wii U Pro Controller.

Hate to sound stupid but my wii u arrives today, finally gave in and bought one, but if you have the official game pad what use is this and the wand type controler is it just for 2 players etc or do you use them for different types of games thanks in advance

In my opinion the gamepad with screen is bulky and unnecessary (other than looking down at it for use of a map or similar I can't see what the point is as i don't want a portable system), but see if you like it first as it's at least good quality. I'm definitely getting one of these controllers now I've got my Wii U as it just seems more sensible to me to use a normal controller.

Different use's of the controllers:

Wii U gamepad/screen - mainly for games that need the second screen (i'm hoping not many), or for playing without the TV
Wii remote (you called it a wand), and nunchuck - mainly for games that use motion plus (such as Wii Sports games like boxing/tennis etc) - FYI remotes for the old Wii will work on the Wii U.
Wii U pro controller - for 95% of games I want to play, this controller is the most suitable for console gaming in my opinion.

I've bought the MK8 bundle from Tesco but its been put away for a birthday present in August. If the gamepad with screen runs out of battery (as I belive the battery life is not that good) can you just carry on playing with Pro controller and TV?
#13
paulj48. I keep the Gamepad charger behind the sofa so I can plug it in when it starts to run low on battery. I don't have a Pro controller, but I should think this is possible.

If you can, and depending on who the gift it for, I would recommend setting the Wii U up asap so that you can take advantage of the free game with Mario Kart 8 - this expires at the end of July. You can then package it all up and give 2 games with the system rather than just the (excellent) MK8. Also, it will save the recepient the time of setting up their accounts and doing the latest system update etc, so that they can get straight on with playing it. Again, it depends on who it's for, and you'll have to choose the free game for them. But if you have an idea of what sort of thing they like then you should be ok, there's a good variety of choices. Great present, it's an amazing console, I love mine and recommend to anyone who enjoys playing games. It is now finally selling a bit more now that Mario Kart 8 is out and Smash Bros, Hyrule Warriors, Bayonetta 1 and 2 are on the way, and ofcouse Wii U Zelda at some point... Hope they enjoy it!

Cheers Gimberlegee, I've allready registered and downloaded my free game, I've had a go on the Wii-U as it needed testing (_;) before putting away for my sons birthday.

Amazon have price matched this.
#16
Ah, that's good, paulj48. I'm sure your son will be over the moon. I went with Pikmin 3 which is a great game. Which one did you download?
#17
He's only turning 7 so I downloaded mario Wii-U, just need to find a reasonably priced Mario 3d land now
#18
3D world is brilliant, I don' think it's come down in price yet. I haven't played the 2D one (have the DS and Wii versions) but I'm sure it's also really good.
#19
3D World is amazing he'll love it. I don't know about all games but you can play MK8, 3D World, Donkey Kong Tropical Freeze without the GamePad, personally I love it but if needs charged I carry on with Wii Remote & nunchuk

Great choice. I'm in the same boat as you, looking for a decently priced Super Mario 3D World, but they seem to be stuck near the £40 mark, mainly because they are so popular. I'm trying to wait until it's about £30. It has been as low as £30 before, so i just have to keep an eye out for when it goes back to that price. Might take some time though.
#21
I am thinking of getting Mario 3D world and a pro controller from tesco direct. Can use more clubcard vouchers at double value, plus a £15 off £75 spend code to make them £30 each and get quidco cashback/clubcard points too.

Some things I find annoying using this controller:

When you turn the system on and you need to log into your Nintendo Network account you need to use the gamepad.

As someone else has said the buttons feel in the wrong place, when using the left stick only 2 of them feel natural (x and a).

Don't expect triggers, the back shoulder buttons are shaped like triggers but are just buttons.

The buttons pretrude out quite far even when pressed in fully, when holding the same button for a long time like the accelerate in Mario Kart 8 you start losing the feeling of the button being pressed. You start questioning if you have it pressed fully and your mind wants you to readjust your thumb position just to make sure.

If you intend on using this controller for Mario Kart 8 and not use the gamepad you will have no mini map. The mini map, current positions and opponent item's are only displayed on the gamepad and not the screen. So if you want to play Mario Kart 8 without being hindered you need both controller and gamepad set up and running.

I miss the days of just needing one controller for everything :)

I am considering getting a Wii U within the next few weeks and I am also unsure of what controllers to buy. I would love the ability to play four player games, but it sounds like I'm going to have to buy 4 wiimotes and a few pro controllers if I wanted to play party games and games like fifa and call of duty.

The cheapest recently I have found is £35.15 with the 5% discount but its a digital download http://www.cdkeys.com/nintendo/wii-u-games/super-mario-3d-world-nintendo-wii-u

Yeah, it's an good price. But i prefer buying games that are physical copy as they have a re-sale value. They will go down to £30 at some point, but may take months..:p
