Nintendo's new Wii Classic Controller Pro

Called the Classic Controller Pro, the gaming giant’s new cabled controller is essentially the same as its existing Classic gamepad – but with two PlayStation DualShock-like grips stuck on.

Two additional shoulder buttons also appear to have sprung up on the Pro model. It also features all the usual tappers - such as ones for Home and Select – a directional pad and two thumbpads.
