    Why is everyone so crazy about 2 gamepads?
    Just leave it at 1, they are very expensive and you got the TV and 3DS for other players.

    I am given to understand it drops the framerate on the GamePad screen, not the "main" video on the TV.

    yes, if we get 60fps on a gamepad, while gaming content is on the screen, too.

    Exactly, it's probably because the ni-fi they're using to stream the video content probably can't handle what would essentially be 120fps when using two pads.
    I remember Namco being very happy when Nintendo finally got full 60fps running and made it possible to stream over further distances for gameplay outside your living room..

    Youtube is restricted to 30FPS. Of course you won't see the difference.

    There is a clear as day difference with 30FPS and 60FPS. Just look here.

    Seems like a small lose for a great system and what I'm getting, but I mean look at Metroid Prime on GCN than look at it on Wii much more smoother but honestly how many people are really truly going to complain, I doubt many! I worked at Gamestop for quite a while and things like this were what we called "minor complaints" that didn't stop any one from buying what they had intended to buy.

    Big N know's all to well what their doing and mark my words this system will sell like hot cakes just like the Wii did and is still doing.

    well 2 gamepads will mostly only be used for party games, and we dont really need full 60fps for these games.

    The difference between 30 and 60 fps isn't that big of a deal.
    Sure 30fps is a little bit more blurry and choppy but when you're playing a game the difference would be negligible.
    There really is no good reason to make a big deal out of it.

    People tend to naturally adjust to 30 fps without issues as a matter of fact most of the games that you play on your PS3 and Xbox 360 play at 30 fps, 60 is just butter and not a standard yet

    As long as the stream is smooth and not jittery (in that it has a constant frame rate, whether that be 60, 30 or even 20 fps), then I have no problem.

    Wouldn't you like to know
    Games run at 60 frames per second on console. The only time frame rate issues are noticeable is when the frame rate drops to less than 10 fps. Did yall know films run at 23 fps? Do you notice any issues with frame lag in the theatre? Nope, u don't. 30 fps won't be an issue at all.

    This isn't a big issue. When I can get a WiiU I only plan on getting two game pads. One for myself and one for the wifey. This is perfectly fine. Aside from that It's high time that I purchase another Wii Remote+. Maybe I'll go for a pink remote and nunchuck combo.

    Everyone needs to stop propagating this stupidity about films and TV using 24fps. Films and TV use huge amounts of motion blur so it isn't noticeable. Go run a game at 24fps, it will be unplayably bad.

    Over-exaggeration at its finest.
