Wow, that’s just nice to look at. Just real nice. It’s a Wii Classic Controller, but it’s got those extra handles that might just trick your mind into thinking it’s 1997 all over again. Or, more likely, it’ll just trick your mind into thinking you’re playing a PS2 game (WII GRAPHICAL QUALITY HUMOR YEAH I’M HILARIOUS). But, no, really, the point of this controller, aside from to look cool, is to allow you to handle the game you’re used to handling other shooters, which, Activision hopes, will lead to folks playing this game as much as much as they would a popular shooter on the 360 or PS3.
I’m absolutely right about that, and even this Activision bro says so right here: “We also couldn’t pass up the opportunity to pay homage to the golden gun with the gold Classic Controller Pro, which looks cool and also gives shooter fans a familiar control scheme to use as they blast their way through the game.”
I win again. This can be yours if you spring for the Goldeneye Limited Edition bundle for $69.99 when the game comes out exclusively on Wii in November.
Oh, and just for funzies, here are some new screens from the game:
