The Wii U controller isn’t final

Wii U Controller Patent Image

While the Wii U console itself has been finalized, there’s a chance that the Wii U controller isn’t. Industry Gamers, who spent some time with the console at CES, had this to say:

Though Nintendo didn’t confirm that the controller design is final, we definitely feel they are close to a finished product.

“Not confirmed” does not necessarily mean that it will be changed, though – the general impressions journalists had with the controller at E3 and CES were overwhelmingly positive, and many have cited its comfortable form and weight. At this point, I’d expect changes, if any, to be quite minor.

  1. I wonder why they’re always saying that? I wonder if they’re having problems with it :/

  2. Hmmm, I don’t mind a minor change, as long as it makes sense.

    The question that hasn’t been answered yet about the controller is where it gets it’s power from…
