True, but honestly, it might as well. The pro controller has all the buttons the pad has and making the pad mandatory would just be something unnacesarily gimmicky...
Not even close to true. There's still things that can be functionally put on the gamepad that aren't gimmicks. The gamepad was amazing on WWHD, and it was completely none intrusive. Same with Deus Ex. Evolutionary concepts can be done. The issue was that motion controls aren't one of them.
Well, this is new.
