Have you been meaning to pick up a Wii U Pro Controller but chicken out every time you see the $50 price tag? Nyko's Pro Commander does the same thing at $15 less, coming in at an MSRP of $34.99.
I tried one out today at CES for you penny pinchers. Its layout is not unlike that of the Xbox 360 controller with its offset analog sticks. The d-pad is really nice, as are the face buttons. It's got a good hand feel with a "soft touch" matte finish, too. Nyko says to expect 25 hours of battery life.
The Pro Commander will hit shelves next month.
