Gaming New Nintendo Console is Wii U, Controller is a Tablet

So I was correct about you not knowing anything then.

Oh well, I just wanted to hear from someone why it "sucks".
 
Because it's doubtful they made it with the quality of a "real" tablet? Why would they make the Wii U comparable to a tablet...

Because it would then sell and make money? Why wouldn't they?

I'm in agreement with Uberplayer on this one, there's no real reviews out there that actually tell what the quality is of the controller, or the hardware, so there's no evidence on which to base any judgement. I will personally be waiting to try it myself before I say what I feel, as I found the Wii to be more fun than I expected.

Because it's from the same people that made the Wii.

They're trying too hard to be "innovative" by having all these gimmicky "innovations" to their systems. Motion sensing is retarded imo, so is 3D gaming.

I really don't see the use of having a tablet built into the controller (wiiPad?). As if people aren't ADD enough? Now we need two screens while we game? One of them being interactive?

I don't think that argument is good enough. Nintendo made DS, the best selling handheld ever. It had two screens, one of them being interactive, omagosh. And Wii, the best selling home console after PS1 and PS2 of course.

I can't say anything against you thinking they're gimmick, if that's how you see it.

You can move the picture from TV to the controller (in most games at least).

Seems it won't include DVD or Blu-Ray playback either. I can understand the lack of BD if they want to develop their own propriety disc format, but to exclude DVD when it costs so little to include is a bit crap really. I mean, I know I have the ability to play DVDs on other devices (read: everything else in my house which plays discs), but the fact is I don't want a ton of devices under my TV. We have a PS3 and a Sky box and the Wii is rarely brought out because there is nowhere to put it that it wouldn't look awkward.

Sure, it might sound like a flimsy reason for not immediately liking it, but that's just me. Also, as said, it is all a bit gimmicky to me really.

Yea I don't really care if a bunch of 12 year old's parents bought it for them, that doesn't make me enjoy it anymore.

And I see that feature as useless. If someone wants to watch TV I'll get off and do something else...

It's pure opinion, no reason to try to debate it.
 
I personally think it's an awesome step in the right direction. I would love to have 4 controllers each with individual screens that would have each players character data and other things like that on it. Tobad you can only use 1 of them at a time. And if you can just move a game from the TV to the tablet cotroller I doubt they are using the screen for anything useful. It's depressing, because I would have loved it if it could use 4 controllers and the screens were used. ah well.

You're totally losing my respect. Well I couldn't care less to read opinions that aren't based on anything.

I'd enjoy some Battlefield game where I can see locations of my allies on a map that's on my hands so I don't need to navigate menus and disturb the game. There's just too many possibilities with this new thing, that thwwwwwot I can't even imagine. Though I don't like the limitation of 1 controller either. Let's just wait for Sony and Microsoft to copy. Maybe they get that correct.

    https://www.thehelper.net/pages/news/ is a link to the old news portal - i will integrate it into the interface somewhere when i figure it out
  • Ghan Ghan:
    Need to try something
  • Ghan Ghan:
    Hopefully this won't cause problems.
  • Ghan Ghan:
    Hmm
  • Ghan Ghan:
    I have converted the Headline News forum to an Article type forum. It will now show the top 20 threads with more detail of each thread.
  • Ghan Ghan:
    See how we like that.
  • The Helper The Helper:
    I do not see a way to go past the 1st page of posts on the forum though
  • The Helper The Helper:
    It is OK though for the main page to open up on the forum in the view it was before. As long as the portal has its own URL so it can be viewed that way I do want to try it as a regular forum view for a while
  • Ghan Ghan:
    Yeah I'm not sure what the deal is with the pagination.
  • Ghan Ghan:
    It SHOULD be there so I think it might just be an artifact of having an older style.
  • Ghan Ghan:
    I switched it to a "Standard" article forum. This will show the thread list like normal, but the threads themselves will have the first post set up above the rest of the "comments"
  • The Helper The Helper:
    I don't really get that article forum but I think it is because I have never really seen it used on a multi post thread
  • Ghan Ghan:
    RpNation makes more use of it right now as an example: https://www.rpnation.com/news/

    The latest news feed looks good
  • The Helper The Helper:
    I would like to see it again like Ghan had it the first time with pagination though - without the pagination that view will not work but with pagination it just might...
