Just saw this at Target. They also had some other Wii U accessories marked down (screen protecter, chat headset, etc.).

It has been confirmed that this is for a 3rd party controller. Not the Nintendo brand. Be on the lookout for mistagged items. The first party were tagged with this in my store. They should honor.

On an unrelated note, they also have Sonic Generations for :3ds: on sale for $16.

Interesting. I had no interest in a Pro Controller yet, but I may as well snag one while they're on the cheap.

That's what I was thinking. I'm sure I'll want one eventually.

I thought so too. It's more like $15 off.

Was at target today and saw the same price for sonic generations. Didn't see it for the wii u or controller but i didn't look either.

Will for sure go back and check though for the pro controller.

This is a great deal. If I wasn't planning on getting the ZombiU bundle I'd be jumping on this.

And this is definitely YMMV considering TPCs are generated from local competition.

I had to track a local walmarts prices when I had worked for Target. It sucked and I stopped doing it after a month. 500 - 1000 items a week and mostly medicine. (Which was the worse).

Big box stores don't carry those, not yet anyway. They're not Wii U Pro Controllers, they're just wireless classic controllers

I'll go check it out tomorrow. I'm sure I'll want one eventually, and this seems like a good discount.

I've seen the controller from the Amazon link in both Gamestop & Target stores.

^^^ this. They carry the 3rd party. I had my hopes up but when I saw msrp, I knew it was this one. Oh well I haven't really found a need for one yet.

I'd wager that the "pro" controller is the third party one mentioned above. They DO sell them at target and for 39.99. And as has been stated countless times, this "pro" controller doesn't function as a Pro controller, it's a mishmash of a wiimote and a classic controller.

I had to go to Target anyway this morning, so I checked it out. It's definitely the third party controller. DPCI is 207-00-0378.
