    You can't use the touchscreen (or the buttons? not sure, update isn't finished) for vWii though. Was really hoping for a semi - portable emulator.

    To be clear, you can only SEE the Wii on the gamepad, right? Is this what the update means? I thought somebody said this BUT I want to be sure.

    The fuck does this mean? I thought there was already a chat via headset to gamepad, or is this that video chat thing?

    Also, the gamepad acts as a screen for Wii games. You need a Wii remote to play them.

    dammit I wish they would just let us plug in USB dongles into the WiiU and use our headsets, like my PS3 headset.
