    I was thinking about how EMULATION IS ILLEGAL!

    "WAAA' THERE PIRATING ARE OLD GAMES WE DON'T GET MONEY FROM ANYMORE AND PROBABLY BOUGHT IN THE PAST."

    then i thought..

    What if they sold a WII U emulator, $100 and then sold Roms for $80 with a $20 fee for porting.

    The roms would be Encrypted with randomly generated passwords per download and must be entered via the emulator

    This way, you can mod there games and play them on your pc with the better performance and Mod Capability most people want.

    They have the code for the WII U's custom OS its cheaper then making a console with hardware. They will have the best of both worlds on there side

    EDIT..

    I never EVER said that i thought this would be something that i want Nintendo to do

    I never said this would be my Ideal as a consumer

    And as an attention bonus saying retard or Idiot will get you nothing as well as using bad grammar and internet slang will get you nothing from me either

    Or they could just release games on Steam. That would be easier.

    This is way too risky , also 80 dollars a game with 20 dollars porting fee ? More like 90 or 100 dollars.

    I don't have a Wii U, so forgive my ignorance, but do any games available right now absolutely REQUIRE the Gamepad? I mean, I just finished playing Sonic Lost World, a Wii U game, ported to the PC. Also, there's that guy making the Cemu emulator, so we know it can be done.

    EDIT: Oh yeah, there's also the various DS emulators and Citra, a 3DS emulator. They manage to show two screens at once. I admit, it would probably be a bit intensive on the PC to do that, though. I do like the idea of having the option to pop-out the second screen into a separate window, like a Twitch chat, and being able to position it around the monitor. If you're playing a game where you have an open corner of the screen, you could shrink down the second window and just kind of tuck it down there.

    that's actually really stupid, nintendo makes most of it's money off licensing.
    granted it's actually mostly to itself but still.
    and your figures $100 for an emulator that's insane. the only reason sega did it is because they gave up.

    that does not really matter a virtual OS is easy to make, Besides Nintendo already codes in C++

    well if you have used DESMUME it just has a second screen on the same monitor

    You can't play some games without gamepad, Nintendoland for sure, i think mario 3d world as well. + many games are better with it.
    The two screens on one monitor won't work well with Wii u emulator since the Wii U is HD so quality will have to be reduced to fit on monitor.

    What are you talking about

    The gamepad monitor is not 1080P

    even if it was it would be downscaled to a corner controlled by the mouse

    Sorry let me clear that up.
    TV output is HD, Gamepad is 854x480.
    So the TV output quality will have to be reduced in order to fit onto a standard HD monitor. Will work better if 4k was standard.
    It would have to be scaled down quite significantly to fit both the gamepad and tv onto a single monitor.

    Yes the TV screen will be Dominant and the gamepad will be Visible but smaller taking up less space..

    there is a possibility that they can have the game set which one is dominant

    or you can use it on a Multi-monitor setup

    it will never happen, manny games need exclusive features from the gamepad like touch screen stuff and such that would be awful using a mouse on a virtual gamepad, not to mention manny wiiu games still have the second controller be wiimote+nunchuck only wich means motion stuff that cant be emulated for shit.

    If nintendo ever releases something for the PC it would be their old games like nes,snes,n64. Anything GC and up i highly doubt it considering they didnt even bothered releasing gc games on the wiiu e shop and thanks to nintendont we all know the wiiu can play gc games very easily.

    mouse is flawed to do touch screen specialy on games where you have to draw stuff you would need a graphic table.

    Also alot of wiiu games use the gamepad gyro like nintendoland where you have to move the gamepad around to see the level around you how would that even work on the pc even with a virtual gampad you couldnt swing it to see up down left or even totaly backwards.

    You still have to compromise on quality for a single monitor setup. To fit both screens on will reduce it quite significantly. This could interfere with using the touch screen.

    Have you ever used Dolphin for a wii u remote

    YOU DONT HAVE TO USE A KEYBORED ALL THE TIME and why are you asking me ALL THESE QUESTIONS

    games do not use the game pad too much for it to hard to use with a mouse

    — Posts automatically merged - Please don't double post! —

    ok here is an idea

    when ever the touch screen is mandatory it comes up on screen

    whenever its not

    you can toggle between the view
