I am trying to consolidate some of my Wii accessories in preparation for the Wii U launch.

What is everyone's opinion on the Wii U Pro Controller versus the Wii Classic Controller Pro? Do you foresee the Wii U Pro Controller as an all purpose controller for new Wii U games as well as Wii and Virtual Console games? Or will you still hang onto your Wii Classic Controller Pro(s) to use with the older games?

I was once known here as KillerMario, but since I really like Banjo Kazooie, I changed my display name to show them my respect :)

As a current gen controller, I agree, but I still think maybe the Wii Classic Controller Pro will have a better feel as an NES/SNES controller... or maybe not.

I think I going to use more the gamepad because I really like the idea of the two screens but with fighting games I going to use the pro controller.

I will be using the Gamepad for everything, but the Pro Controller for classic games on the Virtual Console.

I wonder how well that will hold up.. I get the feeling it won't feel as great for certain games.. I also wonder how long term use will feel...

I think the Pro Controller will end up being my primary controller unless the game heavily relays on the gamepad and I've yet to see a title (I'm interested in) do it went. I also think the Pro Controller will feel sturdier and better than the Classic Controller. Also, I hate the cable attachment.. I like the flexibility to move with the controller in my hand without worrying about dangling parts (I'm prone to accidents like this)
