It is very good. I wasn't expecting it to be that large. I hope it doesn't have a dramatic performance drop through my walls like my wireless router seems to have.

You know I'm actually psyched for this. I can't wait for the next gen consoles of Sony and Microsoft but this will fill in the gap for right now. The fact that Nintendo is doing there best to make the wii hardcore is alsp luring me in.

I just want the Wii U like right now :))

One of the things I'm most excited about is being able to just switch the game to the handheld screen and keep playing without interruption if my girlfriend decides she wants the TV instead. I can still sit there on my couch next to her and play while she watches TV. That's pretty cool.

TrevorPhillips2129d ago

I'm with you there brother :)

I agree that is a pretty useful feature for the Wii U which i hope they advertise in their adverts. Quite a big deal to some people who only have one main TV

I've been dreaming of this feature since before the Dreamcast days!

Brilliant feature and hopefully it works if you're in a different room (albeit within 8 metres).

lol I keep seeing people say this like it pleases them. My girl better take her ass in the other room, she ain't gettin the big screen.

that, plus playing comfortably while laying in my bed. This is the closest i will be to having a TV that pops out horizontally from the wall when i want to play in bed

I could easily play the Wii U from my toilet. Pretty good considering the streaming tech involved.

FinalomegaS2129d ago

umm... hope you have more unused skill points... juggling TP and gamepad can be messy ( I aint touching that pad after lol)

vortis2129d ago

I thought the "streaming tech" he was referring to was for his "backend utilities"?

Makes it easier for people limited to two hands.

Thats further than the lenght of my house lol.

steve30x2128d ago

That person who disagreed obviously doesnt know how big my house is. My single bedroom house is 21 foot long by 20 foot wide.
