3D would not sell me anyway, honestly I'm not excited about the Wii U.
inb4 WiiU Tablet+ with HD screen 12 months after release
LOL Nintendo would do that.
It's too bad Nintendo is focusing so much on their obese controller rather than the specs of the machine or what the system is capable of. I'd only consider getting a Wiiu at launch if the launch window games have strong lineups and if the tablet isn't required (I know it comes with one, I would rather not use it). It looks like the Wiiu has some good games coming to it (Assassin's Creed, Zelda, ect) but we know how Nintendo loves to delay things.
the tablet is the controller, putting the option to not use it in some games is pretty dumb when it's the main focus.
I sure as heck hope they don't use a 3D display on the controller. It'd be a pain in the rear to keep finding a good viewing angle every time your focus shifted from the TV to the controller screen.
Holy smokes Nintendo, Gimmickery is afoot!
Yeah, 3D would be destined to fail. Assuming they used the 3DS' type of 3D (where you have to keep your head in a certain position to get the effect), it would be impossible to maintain if you're constantly looking back and forth from the controller to the tv.
I can see 3D Displays on the Tablet working, specifically for games that are stand-alone on the controller [remember how they talked about being able to play games on it?] For Console games though, it would be useless, for aforementioned reasons above.
They need to stop focusing on "innovation" and give us a good machine with good specs.
I mean, they seem to focus so much on the controller. This may lead to the Wii U having worse specs.
I'm calling it after ms and sony see this sell their just going to copy it like last gen >.>
I dunno about a 3D display on the controller. Nintendo themselves looked into the idea of the 3DS having both screens being 3D-capable, but the use of the bottom one as a touch-screen ruined the effect, so they removed that option there. Same could be said about the Wii U controller.
Besides, unless the Wii U could output to a 3D-capable television, I wouldn't see the point in the controller having it for simple viewing and not touch-screen operation.
Sorry, but the world thrives and progresses on innovation and "thinking outside the box". We'd still be in the Middle Ages if it wasn't for people having ideas.
the exact same thing as a wii but with better security and a fancy controller
they should put a backface camera to that thing in order to do AR
Not that I think t's a good idea either, but
This sort of has one 2D and one 3D screen that you constantly have to look back and forth from
I think the emphasis was on the quotation marks there; there is a difference between innovative and gimmicky, after all.
Since we have not heard much about it, it seem like canned ideas. Which would make the controller cheaper,
leaving room to put money into the console, but that train of thought can't even be consider with a one track
mind of "this is Nintendo,so they can't/most likely won't have a strong enough console and/or should stop
trying to add new things to gaming".
I also think saying "they seem to be focusing on the controller a lot, so therefor, they aren't focusing much on console"
is broken logic.
As in you can't conclude they aren't focusing on console and it's specs because of the controller.
I think that one thing they could do.
It seem you could do some much with this controller and it is a true HD console
with devs working on it's online + other mention stuff.
What more could you want for it to even have a chance of being good?
Gah, Kotaku strikes again. What a shitty news site. Using the controller as a video phone was one of the first things shown at the Wii U reveal at E3. And now Kotaku says Nintendo is "thinking about it"?
Well, there's two things you have to consider...
A) That set up doesn't work well for everybody (beyond just a small percentage), so it's still a bit problematic.
B) The 3DS' screens are pretty close to each other. With a tablet and television, the distance will (or at least, should) be far greater; that's going to make all the difference.
