    According to GameStop, the Wii U Pro Controller can last up to 80 hours on a single charge, which is certainly a longer duration than the Wii U's main controller, the Wii U GamePad, after one charge. For the sake of comparison, an Xbox 360 controller lasts about 25-30 hours with new batteries.

    Although Wii U is backward compatible with most Wii games, GameStop claims that the Wii U Pro Controller cannot be used with any Wii game; you cannot use any of Wii U's controllers to play Super Smash Bros. Brawl, for example.

    The Wii U Pro Controller features the dual analog 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.

    80 hours, hot damn. I expect it t' be pretty weighty then for a large charging cell, not that I've any complaints 'bout that. I prefer a controller with weight to it.

    ... The fact it ain't compatible with Wii games is a big disappointment though. The controller's layout is literally a 360, bar the right analogue stick and the buttons switchin' places. Much as I like it, I don't see why I'd need this besides for local multiplayer since it isn't backwards compatible. I'll probably just be grabbin' a classic controller instead'a this.
