    Not sure if this is the right section to post in, though a search result for "Wii" shows most topics in this category, so I'll give it a shot.

    I'm hearing a lot of conflicting info from other sites regarding the usage of the tablet style Wii-U controller.

    The question is, do any games require that a player use this controller? If we absolutely hate the thought of controlling a game we want to play on a giant tablet, can we opt for the "pro" controller instead? Or are there some games that must have that tablet controller and require a player to use it?

    Thanks in advance.

    Edit: My main concern comes from when the original Wii first came out. They advertised you could use gamecube controllers instead of the wiimotes (so you could just press buttons and wouldn't have to be swinging your arms all over) but then when it came out, you couldn't use gamecube controllers on some games such as The Legend of Zelda Twilight Princess, you HAD to use the Wiimote. So I just want to make sure that's not going to be the case with the new system and the tablet controller before purchasing and can't find any hard information either way on it.

    My guess would be the same thing. I'm sure the games for the wii u will be specific but the wii games will use the controllers.
