Nice to see so much Metroid Prime love around here.
I've posted about my Wii U gamepad problem here a while back. Starting gradually until today where it never does, the Wii U gamepad won't boot the system up. Gamepad fires up, but a connection error is displayed. So I'm stuck booting the system up the old fashioned way with the onboard power button or using a Wii remote.
That summary aside, now that I have a chance to call up Nintendo after a stressful few weeks, the idea struck me that it might be a good idea to buy a Wii U Pro Controller first and give it a test. I've been meaning to anyways since buying one was the plan from day 1, but I wondered if it communicates the same way as the stock Wii U gamepad does?
I was thinking that if it does and it turns on the system with no trouble, it should be a sign to Nintendo's tech support that my console doesn't require servicing, just the Wii U gamepad does (Or vice versa if the Pro Controller has the same issue).
Anyone know if they communicate identically?
