With the Nintendo Wii U release date coming close, more people has started to discuss about its capability, performance, features and whatever good compare to the existing consoles. It’s really a tough war in gaming industry where the hardware alone will not sufficient to fight the battle. But more or less, if you can get something exceptional, it could be counted as one of the plus point of owning this new console.
Recently, I received a news about Wii U controller that could provides up to 80-hours of continuous playback and it’s going to last longer than any existing controller from their competitors, such as Xbox 360 or PS3.
Xbox 360 wireless controller is the king in battery life, where VideoGameBlogger has tested and they’ve got an impressive score of 56 hours and 56 minutes of battery life. However, once this Wii U Pro controller landed at the retailers on this November 18th, Xbox 360 have to give up their crown to this new player.
“Your games, your way. However you think of your gaming style – hardcore, old school, or purely nostalgic – the Wii U Pro Controller puts you in the game. Designed for accessibility and extended game play comfort, the Wii U Pro Controller features the dual analogue sticks and ergonomic button layout that you’ve come to expect, as well as a rechargeable battery that can last up to 80 hours on a single charge.”
It’s amazing to think that you don’t need to recharge your controller frequently. If you are the owner of PS3, you’ll know the pain of recharging your controller for every 8 – 10 hours or so. It’s too short and you’ll be force to keep closed to the machine for wired connection (playing while charging).
Nintendo Wii U Pro Controller is a nice solution for hardcore gamers who’ve love to play for days in single charge. According to EuroGamer, this controller (Wii U Pro) will be available for $37.99 or you can save a little by getting the Wii U ZombiU premium pack (Console, controller, and Game) that will land in the retailers on November 30th, 2012.
