Nyko unveils cheap Wii U Pro Controller at CES

Thursday, 10th January 2013 09:31 GMT By Dave Cook

Wii U Pro Controllers just got cheaper thanks to peripheral manufacturer Nyko, which revealed its cost-effective alternative to Nintendo’s design at CES. Get pricing and a shot of the device after the jump.

The above controller will launch in the States later this month at a low RRP of $34.99, which is a marked reduction from Nintendo’s $50 price tag. The battery life is 25 hours, according to Nyko reps on the CES show floor, speaking with Destructoid.

No European release date has been revealed as yet, but we’ll update if we hear more.

What do you think? Does it look good/cheap?

    Aye, it does look a bit cheap but if (other people’s reports say) it’s a good alternative I could get it.

    I’m more likely to pick up the power pack battery they are producing though. 3 times the duration for about £15? Sold*.

    Sure it’s a bit of a bummer to spend more on the controller but the 360 charge and play kits weren’t cheap either…

    It does look cheap compared to the original thing. Then again, it is cheaper too :)

    it somehow looks more stable than the original one. The Wii U Pro Controller is my fave one of all, because the “Deadpoint” of the analogue sticks is much smaller here.

    I like the stick layout more on this than the Wii CC Pro and the ultra odd Wii U Pro
