wii u pro controller for me.

I just have the wii u gamepad, wii u pro controller and the dualshock 4. I played some with xbox one controller by a friend though.

I do prefer the wii u pro controller with 80 hrs battery life. The l2/r2 buttons (digital) are alot more comfortable then the analog triggers on dualshock 4 (i dont play racing sims).

So overall yeah wii u pro controller, but havent use the xbox one controller as much so cant say enough about it.

The game pad is the same, thats why:

 

Its to ease the transition going from useing one, to the other.

Maybe its just how Nintendo thinks a controller should be?

Well, I intended that picture to apply to both the main gamepad and the Pro Controller. It's fortunate that Nintendo doesn't make a lot of shooters or other right-stick-heavy games. I played Black Ops 2 on a friend's Wii U and I was struggling to deal with the face buttons being below the right stick. Muscle memory is a bitch.



DS4, the gamepad will not be in the next console of nintendo so it cant be that good like people are saying



Wii U Gamepad's touch screen, motion controls, off-TV play, TV remote, microphone, speakers, nfc reader, and headphone jack makes it my favorite. There's just so much packed into it.

X1 controller is my favourite,although a controller that still doesn't come with rechargeable batteries is really bad. And the need to spend more money on a charge kit is annoying.

Wii U Gamepad is my second favourite because I like having a separate screen and the off TV play is sometimes useful.

Dualshock 4 is a huge improvement to previous PS controllers but the poor battery life and quality is disappointing. But it is the most comfortable controller to hold.

I know the X1 controller gets nocked for not having a rechargable battery but iMHO, its better off because it does not include one.  The PS4 and WiiU gamepad really such when it comes to battery life and I am constantly recharging them.  As for my X1, the Rechargable batteries I already have in the home usually gives me a solid week of gameplay before a recharge.

Tell me your favorite controller and I'll tell you your primary platform of choice.

Thats basically how these threads go, its not fanboyism.., its just familiarity.


My favorite controller is Xbone, but my console of choice is a Wii U.

An your right its not fanboyism, just familiarity. I've only owned one Playstation console so I guess that's why I don't really like DualShock controllers whereas I've owned every XBOX console and I think their controllers are all great.

In my case the whole "familiarity" doesn't hold true. I am 35 years old so I used the first Dual Shock YEARS before I ever used an Xbox controller and now, I prefer that over the dual shock.

There is just something easier about FPS and first person games in general with that analog placement. I think it's the left stick being higher on the controller. When it's down, my thumb has to stretch right which makes it slip off the stick time and again. I never had that happen with the Xbox controller.



Wii u controller. The people who don't have this in contention at least just don't know how to use it



no Xbox Elite Controller or Steam Controller in the Poll?

 

Xbox Elite Controller > Steam Controller > Xbox One Controller > DS4



DS4 feels great does more ability to listen thru headphones ext the XBO controller i like but dosent it still use batteries?

the wiiu gamepad needs alot of juice, but its a freaking tablet and you can play offscreen. its only normal that it needs to recharge more often-
