Guy Takes Wii U onto Bullet Train in Japan

A Japanese blogger has found a way to take his Nintendo Wii U with him as he goes to work.

The console isn't portable, but since it doesn't require a second screen, all you technically need is a power outlet and you're good to play most games directly on the GamePad. And since he lives in Japan, Bullet Trains appear to have power outlets for commuters to plug in their notebooks and, in this case, gaming consoles. (Nintendo, Wii U)

According to the source article the guy connected to the train's wifi with his phone and then tethered through that.

Why would you need a Vita if you could play the Wii U on a bullet train? In fact even if you don't live in Japan you could just play a 3DS instead, either which way it's better than playing a Vita.

Recipe for disc scratching.

I know right? Have you ever rested your head against a train window? I remember doing that as a kid, and by the end of the trip I'd have a bruise lol.

Are the disks protected like the Blu-ray ones though?

Oooo not a bad idea. I'm going to strap a car battery around my waist and Wii my U while I get groceries, or save power and use the electricity from my erect nipples.

Why not the consoles tiny. But I'd personally be happy with my laptop/phone/ds/vita/tablet but it's new so ppl will do what ever...
