This is a great addition for family's and a good use of the gamepads unique features, really the first real step forward in augmented reality.

Yes because looking at Google maps on something that is not even capable of leaving the house is completely necessary.

How much fun still panoramic images!

I am sorry this is just confusing me why it's on the Wii U. I could completely understand if the game pad could be taken away portably but it cannot.

I look at google maps at home to get a rough idea of a route to take. What does it matter to you anyway, it's not going to cost anything?

If your going on holiday or somewhere far you can check out parking and bars ect basically plan the best routes from your hotel to the best bars it's as handy as something simular on pc ??? it's fantastic.

Why is the family acting to have fun? Nintendo needs to get there act straight when marketing the wii u. That's one of the reasons it's selling below expectations.

I can do this on my computer, but no panoramic view when I pick up my mouse and move it around in the air.

I personally utilize Google Maps like this when I go places. Makes it a hell of alot easier to know where a street is located at when you have never visited that area.

I am not sure how this translate as fun, but its unique yes. Nice feature I admit, but not really pushing me to buy.

haha, everyone can do it in your computer, it is called google map
bullymangLer  +   527d ago
but you cant do a full 360 degree turn in your loving room using google maps can you? hua haa
profgerbik  +   527d ago
Yes, I could just spin in my chair while using google maps on my computer to be even more specific...

Or I could just my Nexus 7 that is actually portable.. That does the exact same thing and I am sure tons of people have a tablet that can do this before they bought the Wii U.

Again trying to make this seem innovative is just really ridiculous or maybe you were being sarcastic? but turning around 360 degrees in your room does not make Google maps anymore fun.

Just probably makes you more dizzy.

loving room,hahahahaha
Donnieboi  +   527d ago
Yeah i'm doing all kinds of 360 degree movements in my "loving room", but it's got nothing to do with google maps. Y'know what i'm sayin'? You DO know what i'm saying, don't cha???

If you can share pics in Miiverse so people can discuss, it will be really cool. Only problem I see with it would be Nintendo with their Nazi censorship saying people are giving too much personal information about locations. I had someone on Miiverse ask to send me a friend request in a post no one else was in. I said sure and that my ID was the same across all platform. Nintendo deleted my comment and said I was not to give out personal info. It's not like I gave out my address and bank account number... With people sharing locations with this app, they could go crazy with the censorship thing. Anyway... too much beers... sorry for rambling. Looks really cool. Not as cool as the Monster Hunter 3 opening vid, but pretty cool.

Lol that is strict..

its powered by google, it should be called google street view.... not street u

Totally cool, just imagine the possibilities! Travel around the world, 360 free without move a step outside home; Make your own trip schedule checking the places before hand. Just amazing =D

Looks like it'll be fun for about 30 seconds.

We need GAMES, Nintendo. GAMES. This gimmicky crap can wait.
bullymangLer  +   527d ago
games games . .why you so bored ?. and how is this a gimmick? . go look up the work gimmick, before you turn yourseLf into a gimmick
TotalSynthesisX  +   527d ago
Go look up the word "grammar" and learn about it before you turn yourself into an idiot.

Reply to my original comment with a legible response and I might answer your questions.

Were you under a rock for Nintendo's Direct conference?
Donnieboi  +   527d ago
They promised a lot but not much was actually shown/running. At ghis rate, we wont see these games till 2014. Shin Megami X Fire Emblem only showed pre-made static images from older games, and even Bayonetta 2 only showed wire-frame data lol. Platinum only now finished Rising game. By 2014, ps4 and 720 will be here, and Wii U's games will be too late.

I'm going to use it to virtually stare through the living room windows of everybody who currently has an injunction against me *fap*
bullymangLer  +   527d ago
grammar? . you think life gives a hoot if something isn't speLt or said in the way YOU say things? . . okay teach, yur just mad. . happy time?

and remember, as long as what was said was understood, everything will be fine .

this look like a useless idea
metroid32  +   527d ago
Many uses for this i think you can gain all sorts of info on destinations ur travelling too.

Why are people bashing this? New stuff is always good even though you won't use it. There will be allways someone that will have a great time with this and that's what really matters.
