Iwata: Wii U NFC to be used for payments or in-game, prototypes due this year

Joystiq:

'The Wii U GamePad includes a near-field communication function, but you wouldn't know it if you didn't, say, read obsessively about game consoles on the Internet. At the moment, no Wii U game uses it for anything, not even Skylanders, which ships with its own NFC reader.' (Satoru Iwata, Wii U)

Thats exactly what I expected and it will be amazing have the option to pay in few seconds without the need to put in private information or type incredible long codes.

Also, a pokemon, yu-gi-oh, culdcept game would be amazing on it.

@Hicken: you dont need to type credit card, etc, this is the kind of private information I dont want to be stolen
