The Wii U – Hands-On Preview [GamingLives]

GamingLives gets some serious hands-on time with Nintendo's upcoming Wii U console, and reports back on its handling with Pikmin 3, Game & Wario, Nintendo Land and New Super Mario Bros U.

"The visuals displayed were so beautiful that by the end of my time with it I found myself preferring to gaze at the screen instead of the TV whenever possible. The hardware admittedly leaves me a little in awe, but without the right line-up of games that can fully demonstrate its power, it could be left unappreciated and underestimated."

White cat black cat, as long as it catches a mouse its a good cat. If it's better for us why not.

I honestly think it would be in Sony's best interest to at least include an option for asymmetric gameplay. Think about all of the possible gameplay additions that could be possible. Also, keep in mind that when Sony "copies" Nintendo they usually come out with something that takes it a step further(some would say they make it 'Better' but that's strictly opinion)

Look at the original PS1 controller, it was essentially a modified snes controller. However, it added 2 additional shoulder buttons (now a standard)

Now Look at the dualshock, it added rumble(originally Nintendo's idea) and made it so that its in both of the handles providing ideal force feedback.
It also added two analog sticks(Nintendo introduced only a single joystick) and they added extra clickable buttons on each joystick and made them more comfortable.

The PS move added 2 analog triggers and more precise controls for a motion controller, improving upon the original wii remote.

Now imagine what they could do with a second screen and more options?
