Randy Pritchford Calls Wii U GamePad ‘Nintendo’s Best Hardcore Controller Yet’

By   /   4 years ago


The head of Gearbox Software, Randy Pritchford, has had some praise to say about Nintendo’s GamePad controller for the upcoming Wii U console. Gamers have had their doubts about the unorthodox design of the GamePad controller, but it seems that Mr. Pritchford thinks it will be amazing for FPS games.

Randy’s praise came to us in an interview with Joystiq whilst he was speaking about the Wii U version of Aliens: Colonial Marines.

This is the best controller Nintendo’s ever made for making an FPS. This is the best controller Nintendo has ever given us for playing hardcore games.

He touched upon the various features, singing yet more praise for touch screen devices in general and his thoughts on Nintendo sticking to their guns.

With the Wii U they (Nintendo) committed themselves to this promise. So the link is direct, fast and immediate. Things like SmartGlass and Vita, they appreciate the value of the promise so they’re making the promise. But they’re not in with such commitment
