Since last year’s E3, Nintendo has had the time to test and refine the Wii U Gamepad. Now, the gamepad has been finalized, with an NFC reader and writer, motion and gyroscope sensors, and will serve as a fully-independent infrared TV remote. Interestingly, the design is also wider than before, which was already quite wide.
As for the thumbsliders: now replaced by analog thumbsticks. It will be available in white and black. Also, a hardcore controller called the Wii U Pro Controller will resemble both the Xbox 360 and PS3 controllers, for a more traditional design and feel. Via: Nintendo
