Rumor: Looks like the WIIU is ditching its circle pads

wii u controller post

A TT employee just revealed to us what could be the final design for the WIIU controller, and yes, it has ‘real’ analog sticks!

Old WiiU pad design

New WiiU pad design

I for one believe that this is the final design. Nintendo seemed to get a lot of heat because of their weird choice of using 3DS numb sticks. Look forward to the official reveal this E3 2012.

      Doubt it! They already “Sold” the WiiU even before it becomes available retail. They focused so much about that screen its now hard to change something that major without a backlash or leaving people with a feeling of mistrust.

      If the streaming is implemented well, and the thing is comfy to carry (feel, size, weight…etc), It would be a great thing to use! But i can def understand why some dislike this thing.
