A preview on how the Wii U's Netflix app, functions.
WiiU keeps getting better and better as the news rolls out. Nintendo must have felt overwhelmed so they simply highlighted those million bazillion selling software titles coming fall.
They highlighted them but unfortunately forgot to show them. If you want to sell me a console then show me what it can do.
You know what this means... the parents won't have to give up the TV to the Latest Kid movie. or vice versa.
Portable DVD players. Although great, it's not like this wasn't achievable before.
True, but this is an extra perk to owning the gaming console you want. You can get a Blue ray without the PS3. You can play DVD's without a 360 BUT isn't the option nicer?
well, i'll just watch Netflix on my Vita when the TV is occupied; in the same room, in the garden, in the street and on the bus
You can watch netflix on your Iphone or table in HD in some cases. And you dont have to leave your console running or be in the same room.
This system is a dream come true for parents who want to watch tv and cannot since their child is playing a game. It always works both ways! Cannot wait to get one myself.
Ummm...if in 2012 your household can't afford to have more than one tv in the home, then you probably can't afford a next-gen console like the Wii U anyways.
True but What if you have to stay in the same room with them?
@above Umm, a computer or iPad?
True but did you happen to think that some families don't like to have more than one TV in the house? I know a lot of families that have plenty of money but they choose to save their money and only buy one nice TV. Plus the parents don't want their kids stuck in their room all day.
So families are THAT concerned with saving money, yet they will be okay with the prospect of buying what will potentially be a $300-$400 gaming console that the parents of this particular family will likely never use? Ummm..what?
"Plus the parents don't want their kids stuck in their room all day." ...yet parents would be okay with their kids being in front of a Wii U all day, on the ONLY household television?
You never know how much they are gonna pay for the console. Plus if your a parent you wanna make your child happy. They want a Wii U for Christmas and you got the money why not get it for them. So what if the parent does not use it or rarely uses it. They are buying it for their child, if you were a parent you would probably understand better. To your above statement its called being a responsible parent and limiting time playing games. I don't see what argument is here so cya.
hey I can watch Netflix on my 3ds at home when the TV is being watch. right now so we can leave vita out of this.this is a Nintendo story so read it and move on.you sound like jealous asshole when you talk shit! and maybe people thinks it be cool to watch on a 6.2inch screen not a 5inch screen.you guys talked about having the huge screen is so great so having a bigger one for when I'm eating in the kitchen would be great.and its cool what ever screen you use the other gives details about watching.that's a nice bonus everyone will copy!!
Someone's mad. I don't see anyone talking shit. no need to get that defensive over a video game system.
Seriously. Nobody mentioned the Vita. :/ I love Netflix on my Vita, but there are nine televisions in this house to watch Netflix on, so it rarely happens. That and the Vita has an OLED screen...and the Wii U pad doesn't doesn't look as nice. :) Why would you watch Netflix on your 3DS though? It is literally the WORST thing to watch Netflix on. The quality is just freakin' horrible!
and what if you kids wants to play wii-u in the living room but that your only big screen now that can play a full HD console in the same room at the same time.if your a gamer and can't appreciate that. you have to be just a jealous punk.cause that would be a awesome option on any system.
every system has netflix there's nothing to be jealous of
But only one console system can watch it on its control? fanboys now will try and dumb down the feature now saying that it can be done on smartphones and ipads and vitas. but this isent the topic here, its about a games console Control Pad being able to .
I can communicate Netflix and YouTube between my television and my phone. EVERYBODY can do that. This is not a new idea.
not trying to be a troll or nothing but i can do that on my Vita ,Iphone,ipad etc.. not that great of news
Exactly what I wanted to say. I already have Netflix on my Xbox, IPad, laptop, and even iPhone. I'm not trying to minimize this feature, but it should be expected in this day n age.
This remote needs to have a wrist strap if given to kids because lets face it they drop stuff. Hell even I drop my ps3 and xbox remote sometimes but this thing looks fragile. I can be wrong though. We need someone to test the remote with a small fall.
That article title made me LOL. It made me think "In soviet Russia, WiiU controls U" On topic: This a nifty feature to have.
gribblegrunger mentioned vita.and you must not have a 3ds cause mine plays Netflix great and I use Netflix on 360,my Droid smartphone.and 3ds holds up well.I have my Netflix internet setting on high and 3ds looks good because of it. see you probably saw a 3ds using a low internet stream option. but my point is this is a wii-u story and yinz read about. it but hate it.it's just kinds a weird.cause I don't have ps3 so I don't read about cause I don't care about it.but yinz all talk shit about Nintendo stuff like your jealous.cause with my 360 ,wii,and 3ds.I play those and read about them I'm happy with my stuff so I could care less about Sony's stuff cause it don't effect me. but you Sony fans talk shit about stuff that doesn't deal with yinz all the time.and then get mad when people defend there system of choice even when we don't bash Sony.so either yinz are all young kids that don't know better or your jealous!all the disagrees in the world wont make this less true!
sorry but i just don't see this as a strength for the system. it's got nothing to do with being a fanboy, it's got everything to do with being a thinker. what the Wiiu needs is a compelling reason to buy one and as of now, i don't really see one. if one appears at launch then count me in... but until then i'll remain sceptical. i didn't jump in with the PS3 either. i waited three years before i bought one
Nice little touch to have on the controller, i was just waiting curiously while reading till i heard some insecure fanboy " i can do this on my vita" , well it only took 5 posts and there it was. :( lol What the insecure fanboy ment to say was "I cant do this on my ps3 controller"
Sony please just bundle the Vita with ps3 and destroy the Wii U.
