When someone mentions a Wii U the first thing you think of it the giant wacky controller that the whole console it marketed on. So if Nintendo are all for the innovation, why should you spend your hard earned cash on this perceivable step backward?
Well contrary to popular (assumed) belief not every game released will require that big expensive touch screen. Think classic arcade games and the inevitable ports from xbox and ps3. So it makes sense that Nintendo decided to release a regular variant. Now granted most developers out there will want to make use of all this extra technology, take batman arkham city: armoured edition for example. but its inevitable that for those that don't that big bulky tablet its going to bug you.
However Nintendo have also re released the original wii controller for the Wii U also. this will have the same compatibility as the pro controller and both are wireless. So at the end of it all its really a question of if your willing to spend more money on yet another way to play on the Wii U.
