I was able to do this 5 years ago using Skype on my laptop. Why is that when Nintendo finally steps out of the stone-age, you guys act like it's never been done before? Hell, my Bravia TV has a camera for conference calls. So does my 3 laptops, 1 desktop, my Android phone, I-phone and even my Vita (Skype). Nothing new here.

"Video powered gaming experience"
Wii street U by google
Wiiu chat possibly going to mobile devices
Why do i get the feeling that we're going to see a something like that google real world mobile phone game.

Well the last Wii U focused direct was on January the 23rd, next one should come soon. I'm going to be pissed if they show more Luigi's Mansion or "year of Luigi" crap... And he better not wear that hat. Wii U needs much more attention than the 3DS.

I know, right? It's on Vita, too. And my phone. And tablet. And...tv. We have this feature on everything.

Love WiiU chat it seems smooth in that you get no tracking when you move around fast ect the tech in the camera is impressive,if it goes to mobile as well as Miiverse that will own.

Video powered game experiences ie a small video of the players on GAMEPAD while playing online wow that would smash ps4's and 720's online chat t pieces.

Sounds awesome if it's true. I'd certainly like to see that conference.

Pretty much expected this

Wii U centered direct soon please. The 3DS is getting an average of 2 quality titles per month starting this month onward, I don't even have to get into hardware sales because it's at 30 million. No Luigi's Mansion, no Mario Golf World Tour, no Animal Crossing New Leaf, just Wii U.
