Wii U GamePad The Best Hardcore Nintendo Controller Yet According To Pitchford

Nintendo fanboys aren't the only ones drooling over the company's new tablet controller, as Gearbox Software's Randy Pitchford recently expressed his excitement in the device as well. “This is the best controller Nintendo’s ever made for making an FPS. This is the best controller Nintendo has ever given us for playing hardcore games,” he told Joystiq when discussing the Wii U version of Aliens: Colonial Marines.

“With the Wii U they (Nintendo) committed themselves to this promise. So the link is direct, fast and immediate. Things like SmartGlass and Vita, they appreciate the value of the promise so they’re making the promise. But they’re not in with such commitment,” he added.  

Does this mean we'll be seeing more Wii U support from Gearbox in the future? Does bringing Borderlands 2 to the console sound like a logical step? Sound off with your thoughts in the comments below.
