    'SNES' Pro Controller for Wii U

    Post  laughingjumpman on Wed Oct 17, 2012 1:46 am

    Something interesting for retro-Nintendo fans, a new Wii U controller has recently been listed on an Aussie videogame retailer's site for $48.00, or about £30. 70 in our native currency.

    Check it out:



    While it's supposed to be the work of a third party peripheral maker (according to Tech Digest, who first reported on the new piece of kit) and apparently a fair bit cheaper than its official equivalent, the current stock photo on EB Games' site (above) looks suspiciously like someone's done a quick photoshop job on the official Pro pad, and also lacks any real information - such as the name of the manufacturer/trickster responsible.

    We'll have to wait and see if the real article materialises, how similar it looks to the mock up, and whether it'll see the light of day outside everyone's favourite ex-prison colony.

    Not to say it won't happen but that is definitely a mock up picture! It would be ace though! A combination of the two best controllers ever! The Xbox 360 and Snes controllers combined!

    Reckon Nintendo/the manufacturer of this should just do a standard pro controller design, but with SNES colours - so coloured button, grey casing and dark grey dpad. A bit plainer, but not as fugly as that mock up.

    I want to know what the two grey buttons in the centre would do, as they're obvioulsy not a stand in for the plus and minus buttons, which have been shifted up top.
