Do any games specifically call for the Pro Controller?
I don't have a lot of games, but I bought the plants vs zombies table for zen pinball 2. I had a buddy come over and I said lets play 2 player and check it out. The game says, connect a pro controller for player 2. So yes, some games specifically require the pro controller. The fact that pinball is one of them is stupid, since you need about 3 buttons total to play. Its recommended for hardcore titles like AC3 and Batman:AC

Do any games specifically call for the Pro Controller? I'm really debating ordering 4 at this price, I just can't get a straight answer if it is required if I already have 4 wii motion plus remotes, I'm not sure how people are using their pro controllers.

Sorry if it seems like a silly question, I haven't had time to explore the Wii U yet, it's been collecting dust at my house but I would like to get in to it while on vacation.

Thx
I use it for Sonic Racing Transformed and now with the update I'll be using it for New Super Mario Bros. U. I'll probably end up using it for Pikmin 3, Mario Kart, and Super Smash, provided they all support it. And I know my friends will also prefer the pro controller for Smash. It's very comfortable and I like it much better than the Remote, so I use it whenever I can. I do like the GamePad, but sometimes I just prefer the old-fashioned controller feel.

Seems like white version of controllers only go on sale. Cheapest price I've seen for this. I still have my 2nd black controller sealed from launch that I can't get rid of.
I'll buy it for $25. But yes, this is a great price. When Best Buy has a sale, they go all out.

No, some Wii U games and all Wii U Virtual Console content only. It will not work on Wii games or Wii Virtual Console games played on the Wii U. With a recent patch it does now work on New Super Mario Bros U. I have also used it with Need for Speed Most Wanted U. The battery life is great, said to be around 80 hours and it would seem to me to be about that. My only gripe are the two analog triggers on the back as I would have preferred analog for better control in racing games.

these things will drop more once nintendo puts the wii u on a firesale this holidays.. it sold less games than the vita the past 2 months... not a good sign
Less than $25? Good luck with that. Accessories are rarely discounted in line with the main console, PS3 and XBox controllers still sell for what they did 3-4 years ago despite drops on the console itself. And if your comeback is "this is different because wii u is teh sux," don't bother.

And either you don't know what a firesale is, or you're delusional. A firesale happens when the manufacturer throws in the towel on a product, and slash prices to move units even though everyone is acutely aware that they're no longer supporting it in any way. The classic example among SDers would be the HP Touchpad. If you're suggesting a similar fate for the Wii U, you need to troll better.
