Exacly what i was thinking.
Why would you need this at home?

will next Wiiu commercial will be about 4 teenagers in a big living room (as in pretty much all Nintendo commericals), all playing Google Street View?

this is so pointless lol.

Is obvious you don't have a Wii u.
WrAiTh Sp3cTr3  +   787d ago
I could use it along with the screenshot capability and make some Far Cry maps using it as reference. But that type of stuff flies over the head of the average n4g member.

Haha epic.

It is one service, free, and I am pretty sure some ppl will use it (they use on their computer, why not on the big screen), but, u dont need to use it if you dont want to. Stop the hate

What's the point?
richierich  +   787d ago
Another app I will only be using on my computer not my console
dboyc310  +   787d ago
Do people still use it in the computer? Figured most will use their phones. On topic though what's the point of it if the console doesn't follow you once you leave the house haha

I have it on my phone (which is a good place to have it as its outside with me) why would I want this on my Wii u. its not really a bad thing but its not exactly good neither just meh. atleast if I get lost at home I can find where I am.

I like fetures like this, dont understand People moaning about it. Probably children..?
WrAiTh Sp3cTr3  +   787d ago
Just people who don't use their brains, useless people.
pedroyamato  +   787d ago
Hating wii u gives you a lot of thumbs up these days. Thats why.

The app is there for free, one more interesting service the others plataforms cannot even run, and ppl keep on hating.

They dont know what they want

If they added a feature that could transfer map data over to your phone from the wii u, it could be a very good way to plan trips. Other than that it's nice that even google is supporting the wii u apps, but not exactly practical.
DoomeDx  +   787d ago
I think 98% of the people that own a Wiiu, also own a Laptop or PC. Which (i think) is more usefull then this.
Yodagamer  +   787d ago
Well it'd be nice to have it on the big screen and then like the video in this article you could map it out on the touch screen while looking at google streets to see the sights on your hdtv. It's almost perfect for planing trips.

Yes we all have it but not like how they have done it for Nintendo. novelty but if it's free I would not complain.
strigoi814  +   787d ago
Yah right..who needs a google map on a home console?? Oh my goodness thats the best you can tease me to jump to a wii U ??? Really??
seamonkey420  +   787d ago
waaaaa. that is all i hear from you gamers these days. seriously, this is cool and nice to have to help plan a family outing or vacation. yea, we all have it on our phones.. well, almost all of us minus the iPhone iOS 6 users. ;)

An added little bonus, and people here are moaning about it. It's not paid for, it's not supposed to be something that sells the system. It's funny the things people complain about.
punisher99  +   787d ago
Reminds me of 2006 all over again when the PS3 came out and had a web browser. People were moaning and complaining how useless it was because everyone supposedly has a pc. Wii U owners, get used to the moaning because there will probably be more in the future.

Is obvious intended for viewing places most people will never visit
Heavenly King  +   787d ago
What is the point on having this on a console? On the 3DS it could have made sense but for the WiiU not really.
Drainage  +   787d ago
this is only stupid if i didnt have a wii u . LMAO at people complaining about an app. ...pathetic^^^^^^^^^^^
