Speaking in an interview with american gaming site, Joystiq, Gearbox's Randy Pitchford has stated that the Wii U's GamePad is the best controller that Nintendo have made for first person shooters yet.
"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." Pitchford said.
Pitchford went on to praise Nintendo for sticking to their touchscreen promise, "With the Wii U, Nintendo commited 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 (as Nintendo).
Have you tried the Wii U's GamePad yet?
