I remember seeing one of my older cousins with this and I would tell my young, naive self that I would get one of those someday.

black doom My old TV was done, the screen was shot and sound didn't come in on many channels anymore. It was a old school curved screen tube TV. I know exactly how you feel about the screen not fitting in, I coulden't even read text most of the time because of the blur. I wanted to get a new TV before the Wii U came out so I could experience it's HD (along with my PS3 and 360). The TV I have went on sale one week and my BF batsman tolled me to get that one (I was looking at some other cheepy model) and I did and I'm not looking back at all on dropping $1000 on it. I have a full time job but I had to save for a while to get it.

(the game looks a lot better on that then on that shity screen they used for the gamepad).
Really? My Gamepad screen is vastly better than my (admittedly SD) TV which tends to frame the screen stupidly.


Though I also think it's a brilliant device which should be used to allow for more complex titles than are conventionally possible. If, for example, Nintendo get another (more realistic) GTA-alike after the masterpiece that was Lego-City it could be used to display speed gauges (as well as the map) to make for some awesome manual-gear-shifting possibilities.

Not to mention all the crazier ideas I am sure we, and many game designers, are having. Like an, on-the-fly, Okami meets Oblivion meets Scribblenauts magic system for an open world Elder Scrolls/Legend Of Zelda type game. Ouuuh, with 50 dungeons that all give you new magic but with only a few attached to the 'core' story.
I no longer have a SDTV, I got me a 3D HDTV back in September. The games look amazing on it!
Wow, that sounds quite impressive. I am more than a little jealous; I want to upgrade to a new TV because the Gamepad makes the edges being cut off by the TV far more obvious than our Wii or Xbox 360. I really want to find a good quality television which I can afford, but balancing those two concepts is proving a nightmare!

Besides there is gonna be a lot to pay for this year, what with the Wii-U promising a lot of games I want and the Xbox 360 looking to 'go out with a bang' (if it 'goes out' at all, I suspect poor adaption rates to be the norm for all three consoles for some time unfortunately).

Remarkable how far Nintendo's design department has come since then.

They should have a option to turn off the screen on the gamepad or something when playing a game that doesen't really use it for anything.
HOME Button > Controller Settings > Turn Display Off

Try that.
I haven't touched my wii u in months now so I was unaware of that

It's just awkward to look at two screens like that. It isn't a DS. The gamepad may be useful for something like a map or menu but nothing much else, I always find my self looking at my TV (the game looks a lot better on that then on that shity screen they used for the gamepad). They should have a option to turn off the screen on the gamepad or something when playing a game that doesen't really use it for anything.

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.

Why isn't a HUD-less cinematic experience enough for people?
Well, maybe some people like HUDs.

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