I just tried to generate a certificate and got that error.
I hope the error clears before the end of the day or they run out of stock. Are you rewardzone silver?

Price-matched this at target. Sadly, they only had one left and wouldn't sell me a black one for the same price.
Thanks, OP.

Yeah, silver. I was trying to get it shipped but now it's OOS for shipping.

Is there any benefit of this controller if I only ever play alone, other than personal preference of not having a screen between your hands? No games require this, correct? It doesn't provide any additional functionality?

Does anyone use this controller with games on Steam? Decent compatibility and response?

Just spoke with Best Buy RewardZone Silver Support. They expect to have the error that is preventing certificates from being created, fixed later today. In any case, they said you can go ahead and purchase the item without certificates (either store pickup or shipping). When you are able to issue certificates, just print them and bring them back to the store with your receipt and they customer support desk should be able to do a return and repurchase and credit the amount of certificates back to your original form of payment.

The only benefit is battery life. If you play a lot of traditional style games or virtual console games that don't require the screen, these are nice because the battery life on these controllers are INSANE (I think the reviews said you get nearly 50 hours of life off of one charge).

Personally, I think the tablet controller is insanely comfortable (big dude with broad shoulders, so the wider controller actually works really well for me), but depending on your tastes/size, a more traditional controller might fit better in your hands.

ahem, not to be an old fogey (guilty) but is this used on old classic games or is this for new stuff?

If this is just a wireless version of the old classic controller from the Wii days, I pass... If this is a new hotness I'm in. (can you tell it's for the kids? ;-)

thanks

This will only work with the Wii U proper. It will not work on the original Wii, nor will it work in the Wii Mode of the Wii U.

Thanks, I got that part.... I'm asking why my kid might want it. We never did buy the classic controller for the original Wii and we never missed it. Is this just a wireless version of that or is this good for new games?

thanks

It can be due to preference. Perhaps you want to play Mario Wii U without having to hold the large gamepad or the smaller wii remote. Also, keep in mind that the Wii Remote is not going to be the main control method that developers are going to keep in mind as they program games since they don't come packaged with the Wii U.
