Whoa, that new Wii controller is pretty crazy. Fact is, ever since the Dual Shock was released, every controller has been inspired by it. I say inspired, because really that's what it is. It's what all companies do with tech, which is why/how tech advances. The sad thing is that you get these die-hard fans who wish to give credit to one company, usually Nintendo, for everything innovative in gaming and everyone else are just copy cats. This mostly stems from the problem of them having limited info on the history of gaming and not wishing to look into the subject further. It's just easier to credit one company.
