    Near Field Communication (NFC)

    The Wii U GamePad has the ability to communicate wirelessly with objects that are held above it. This allows for a variety of interesting new possibilities for games and activities.What exactly do they mean by this ?? or is there suggested examples floating around ?

    Yeah, something like Skylanders, but also holding your creditcard near it for easy eShop purchases (probably).

    Could be also used together with Smartphones, like wave your Nexus 4 over the Gamepad and continue reading the webpage on the go or vise versa.

    You never know. It could be quite possible. They would probably need to mandate a standardization with character info and texture for the data that the nfc will transmit, then it could be easily possible to use characters from other games.

    WOW I can see if they do this system wide where these "collectables" can be used in many games. you buy one he gets used in any game that wants to use them and its only pulled from system memory
