I was browsing in the video games section when I came across the Wii U accessories. Then I saw the red sticker that indicated that the Wii U pro controller is on sale for $18.00. I couldn't believe my eyes! I've already bought the two units that the store offered so no more in the San Leandro, CA Hesperian Walmart.

You would not be saying that if you owned COD BLOPS II or Ninja Gaiden 3. Absolute necessity to have the pro controller for both games.

It would be more useful when virtual console comes out, since there's no wiimote support for SNES games

Walmart clearance is very YMMV.

My local Walmart's never do any of these deals, but congrats on finding the deal.

I play Monster Hunter 3 Ultimate using the pro controller.

I will feel more comfortable playing heavy wear and tear games on the pad when it become available for purchase independently.

To be fair, Call of Duty games work great with Wii Remote set ups and the GamePad is pretty good.

But yeah, the Pro Controller U might be a specific store clearance sale.

I really hope the question is when and not if. I'd love to see Nyko or MadCatz's take on the pad as well.

Doesn't red sticker mean clearance? Hope it's available at my local store for that price

CoD is better with Wiimote + Nunchuk

And Game Pad is fine for Ninja Gaiden

Only reason I see to get a Pro Controller is the much longer battery life

Not always. Sometimes they are things that don't have a shelf location anymore or dissimilar products that were cross-referenced in the database... or sometimes even a lazy employee who didn't want to change the tape in the portable printer.
If I recall correctly, the way to identify clearance at WalMart is when it ends in $x.00, in this case $18.00.

Checked my store while I was getting some other stuff. They are full price.

Nothing here. I wonder if that was meant to be the Wii Classic controller on clearance for $18 and someone hung the Pro on the wrong peghook. Did it ring up at $18 or was an override necessary?

Something is really off if Walmart is clearancing out a controller for a brand new console. This makes no sense. It's a great deal though.

My problem was this hoarder took all of them including my one copy as I helped her.

Nope. The tag was clearly for the Wii U Pro Controller. No override was necessary. I just got really lucky, I guess.. Like I said on an earlier post, I'd attach a pic but the system won't let me.

Yeah i check my local one everyday I have it bookmarked. I also found a 3DS last year for $50. Now that said I check it everyday as mentioned and I have for over a year and those are really the only two great finds worth mentioning.

I see the ad call the guy up to his house and he was this humongous biker guy. If he wanted to he could of demanded the money without giving me anything in return. But he was cool he said gamestop was only offering $120 so he sold it on there to get a little more. That's fine with me.

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