To the post three above this: smash bros games dont need the gamecube controller, and since the right analog stick isnt needed that much, i see feww reasons why this is worse in any way.
The specs of the wiiu dont seem to be better than the ps3 in every way or in any way for that matter. How much memory exactly is flash memory (does it mean no memory)? And how much data can the high definition optical discs hold? Whatever it is, its certainly worse than the PS3, but certainly bring price down effectively.
the controls are ok, releived that the shoulder buttons are trigger (read it somewhere else). Theres a few things i would change, but im mostly worried about the touch screen, as it isnt multitouch, so you cant play any real 2 player game with a single controller, which is why only othello was showed.
Also, i dont know if its good news or bad news, but the screen idnt HD. I didnt expect it to be, which is the good news, but then why can it play every game that is HD on a screen that isnt HD? How will that work? I didnt expect it to play fully every actual wiiu game, but im curious as to how a non HD screen can do what a HD screen and the non HD screen together can do. If it dumbs down the games to non-HD, i wouldnt mind, but that isnt possible, is it?
Im also in doubt as to whether the control can play on its own without the console being on, as the game does go into the console, so thats a no. Then whats the point of playing via the console alone if the console has to be on? it means i have to leave the console on if I want to play during the night in bed. And if it can play on its own, hurrah, but can it connect to other controllers locally, and go online? If it does, happy days. If they make a monster hunter like this, drool. Ill be playing online all night, and it will give me a better opportunity to get the best charms. And just think what it will be like if the wifi was lagless, and never disconnects. It will be the best gaming experience, and will just need the games to back it up. I need more information regarding the above, and how good the wifi is.
Also - can the controller play songs and go on the internet, and does it have any memory? it needs to have memory or playing with the console off isnt possible. Whatever happens, im still geting it, mind. As long as it doesnt cost oever £350
