Has anyone considered upgrading the TN screen on the Wii u gamepad for an IPS display? Would it be possible? Could some kind of screen ribbon adapter be made to use some kind of third party IPS display on it?

I was just wondering the exact same thing! Hahah!

I have no doubt it's possible considering what's done with GBA, GBC and GB screen mods! But besides you, me and maybe two others....I guess there won't be a lot of demand for it. ;)

Too bad really, as I am just starting to play a few games now: Kirby and Pikmin on the WiiU. Especially Kirby looks amazing on my TV and a little dull on the gamepad...which is where you 'must' look for this game!

But maybe it's out there or being worked on, who knows :D
