Gearbox Software President Randy Pitchford has nothing but praise for both the Wii U console and its unique GamePad. Pitchford believes that the Wii U Gamepad is simply the best controller Nintendo has ever created for making a first person shooter. He also thinks that it’s the best controller Nintendo has ever given gamers for playing hardcore games. Here’s his thoughts.
“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.”
“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.”
“Conceivably there’s things you can do on all three without negative impact but because of Nintendo’s commitment to it there are something’s that could work there that just wouldn’t work as well with SmartGlass or with the crossplay between PS3 and Vita.”
