Wii Classic Controller Pro Designed Like A PS2 Pad



ps2pad Nintendo announced a revised version of their Classic Controller is scheduled to come out in Japan this summer. The Classic Controller Pro adds grips and enlarges the ZL / ZR buttons which makes it look strikingly like a PlayStation 2 controller.


All of the extra plastic makes the Classic Controller Pro fatter too. Here’s a quick comparison of the sizes between the three accessories.


Classic Controller

Length: 2.65in      Width: 5.34in   Thickness: 1.02in 


Classic Controller Pro

Length: 100.5mm   Width: 146mm     Thickness: 55mm
