I wonder why these are being clearanced out... It's possible Nintendo is discontinuing these and adding analog trigger instead of digital ones. That would be awesome if it were the case, and I Would rather pay $50 for analog triggers than $18 for the current digital ones.

I'm sure it was for the simple fact that when the Wii U was in demand, all the accessories were scarce.

I know I had a hard time finding a pro controller back then.

Someone simply over ordered expecting the demand to keep up.

Still shocking to see such a price drop at Wally World.

My Wal-Mart's clearance is laughable.

The section looks like it has been ravaged by zombies yet something that costs $70, they will have a red sticker on it for $68.96. And I'm not kidding.

I want a Pro Controller just to eliminate the wear and tear on the Gamepad.


That was my reasoning also. For stuff like BLOPS2 multiplayer, the gamepad doesn't really offer a whole lot of extra functionality, so I'd rather just use the Pro controller.

I'd bet on human error and that someone entered it into the computer wrong, $18 clearance at Walmart is usually a $20 item which would be in line with the Wii Classic Controller Pro.

I checked a few today, and no luck. I did, however, get a ticket for being on my phone for all of 5 seconds in a construction zone. Lose lose for me.

I've been using one of these for over a year. I haven't had a single complaint about the other person not being able to hear me either.

That looks pretty awesome. Seems really easy to use too. Shame I didn't have this earlier today lol! A state cop on a bike nailed me as I was getting off the phone going in to a work zone (where no one was even at because it was lunch time). Oh well, enough of my ranting.

Thanks for the heads up! I have a feeling I'll be ordering this in the next few minutes.

Both the black and white controllers are marked as discontinued at my local Walmart (central NJ), but the price hasn't been adjusted yet. The employee said that it will likely be updated in the next day or two. Hope I don't miss it!

Just in case someone doesn't know, these controllers are advertised to go 80 hours on a single charge.

Gonna check my store tomorrow, already got a Classic Controller Pro which works well in Monster Hunter, but I have a feeling one of these would feel better in my hands for long periods. (That and constantly having to sit my Wiimote somewhere nearby)

Just not a fan of how they put the buttons under the right joystick...

Well not as good as the OP, but my local store dropped the white controller to $37.50 (black is still 50)

This is more along the lines of what the clearance price should be and doubt it'll ever reach 18 (@ walmart anyway)m

Aww, they're not backwards compatible with the wii. I guess I have no reason to get one then :/

OP, I think some people would appreciate it if you put this info in your post.

That's completely obvious... Why would a Wii U controller be compatible with a Wii?

That's like saying a PS3 controller isnt compatible with a PS2.

I think he means with Wii games (like Super Smash Bros) on the Wii U. In this case, it's a somewhat valid point, because the PS3 controller is compatible with PS1 and PS2 games when it comes to backwards compatibility on the PS3.

The Walmart I went to had white controllers on clearance for $36, but not $18. I'll keep an eye on them in case they drop lower.

Somewhat valid is right. Just never crossed my mind since Ninty did the same thing with the Wii (gc controller needed to play gc disc games).

Don't see it as much of an issue since I mainly want the pro-controller for when I buy Monster Hunter and any of the old NES games I grab off the e-shop.

Has there been any indication that VC games will be playable on the pro controller? I thought they were working on making them compatible with the gamepad.

Why wouldn't they be? It could be useful for multiplayer if you can't use the wii remotes and we only have one gamepad.

I saw this same price at my walmart today. I got so excited when I saw the red clearance sticker, but then I saw the price. :( I'll keep checking.
