I can imagine Miyamoto when, in ten years time, everything will be dual screen. He'll get out pictures of the DS and Wii U and scream "YOU'RE WELCOME"

Should of using the money they made off of the Wii and DS for a better console.
The game pad alone drives up the price by $150.

Also, considering how the Wii and 3DS were pretty much just places to re-release N64 games, I expect the Wii U to be a place to re-release a ton of GameCube games.

Hell, they've already announced WindWaker HD.

EDIT: I'll be honest. Although I'm a Nintendo fanboy, I was upset with the Wii. It looks like I'm going to be upset with the Wii U as well.

I hope he's right about people in general catching on to having two screens to play on otherwise the Wii U may turn out to be a bust. This combined with Microsoft forcing online connectivity (still not confirmed) could help drive Wii U sales, though could also drive PS4 sales as well.

The price of the game pad is high so I hope it is durable, most of Nintendo's hardware usually is, because if it is somewhat easy to break many people will be pissed.

It feels like Nintendo are relying too heavily on the dual screen thing to market the console. It is a nice feature yes, but not something that ships units unlike the motion controllers in the Wii which attracted mainstream/casual users. It also kind of defeats their whole "multiplat" goal (if thats even still valid considering how much more powerful the PS4/720 will be) considering it will require devs to independently code for it.

Sure it offers new and intuitive experiences to gaming, but I'm not sure touch is a way of progression in gaming control (other than casual titles) considering it offers very little by way of tactile feedback. In addition, the DS isn't a fair comparison considering the screens were significantly smaller and at similar focus points as opposed to a distant presumably large screen TV and near by tablet.

I think Microsoft have this right with XBOX smart glass for controlling console functions, its not integrated into gaming, but it offers ALOT of value. I mean outside of gaming does the Wii U tablet offer anything more than users could get from their mobile phone?

I actually missed having a second screen after playing without one.

My first experience with Disgaea, a turn based strategy game (FFTA, Advance Wars, Fire Emblem, that sort of deal), was on the DS. Top screen had all the normal fare, bottom screen was a top-down view of the map and simple labels. So you had fancy up top, and then information dump bottom if you needed it. Was really nice and actually depended on it a lot, much of the game in Disgaea is randomly generated maps, so huge height differences that made understand map topology from an angle wasn't uncommon. Years later, played Disgaea 4 on the PS3, and couldn't help but miss the old simple-map from the second screen.

I have my doubts about the WiiU, so far it's had quite a struggle to find a spot in the market. Interested to see how that will develop over time, and if a dual-screen setup for consoles will really take root.

Why isn't a HUD-less cinematic experience enough for people?

PS4 is most likely going to do the same thing if you take one look at the controller.

Well, maybe some people like HUDs.

I'm hoping to see a new Star Wars game for the Wii U at some point, I'm really thinking it would be awesome using the duel screens.

Maybe something like EAW.
