"They worked very hard to make videos run smoothly in the new browser in response to the trend of watching and not just reading and looking things up. You’ll be able to watch the Nintendo Direct presentations on the GamePad or your TV!"


Watching that trailer makes me see exactly how easy it is to get used to this. :)

Looks pretty cool, I've been wondering about the browser and im liking what I see.

So far the browser is my only complaint. Not having any add on support could be a bad thing. Yes HTML5 is set to be the new standard but what happens if something better comes along? THey've left themsevles no way to support it

They can always improve the browser or anything else with updates, you know.

No actually they cant. It offers no add on support at all. That means it will not support anything oter than HTML5. If they could update it later then i wouldnt clearly say no add on support.

If it was as easy to do as you claim, it would be built with that functionality to begin with. It does not support add ons. It was built from the ground up to only support HTML5.

He means they can upgrade when ever / if they want to.

Software updates anyone?

wait, so you are telling me they can't add in support for other devices through firmware updates? The PS3 did not come with 3D support out of the gates, it was added in with a firmware update. You honestly think that they can't add in support for other programs if they should choose to do so?

This definitely is going to be something fun. I loved how seamless everything works.

Honestly I can't see myself buying a WiiU until something like SSB comes out
