Secrets of the Wii U GamePad

The Wii U GamePad has been reverse-engineered by the developers behind the Dolphin GameCube/Wii emulator, with the controller's functions completely simulated on PC. When we heard the news on Twitter, we contacted developer Pierre Bourdon to find out more. In hacking the GamePad, we reasoned that the developers would have extensive information on how Nintendo's innovative controller actually works. (Wii U)

Its nice that they acknowledge that the gamepad is just a normal controller with a touchscreen on it and not tablet

'and not tablet'

Duh, you don't say? I'm going to go and smash my head into the wall so I can have a brain like yours.

A controller is not a tablet. My mind is blown.

The next thing you'll be telling me is that the ps4 controller isn't a laptop.

I just hope they hurry up with hacking it so we can use it as a PC monitor with buttons. Imagine all dem glorious emulators through it

It is not a tablet... You can't use it if the system is off or you're too far from it, so it was pretty obvious from the beginning.

It seems everytime I read a Wii U article, it has to do with either the system being hacked or the lack of third-party development. This really doesn't bode well for a system when you have monsters like the PS4 and Nextbox looming on the horizon.

whats the use? ps3 couldnt even out compete the wiener wii when it came to graphix, just look at kirbies epic yarn, or skyward sword, those games have unique art skill, UNIQUE, obliterating the "competition". there is nothing as unique looking as those games on the ps3, and now the ps4 and next box gonna do what to wiiU? LMAO ....

lolall those games look like hot trash on wii. Hell windwaker still blows those games out of the water art wise. And in terms of actual graphics the wii was horrid, thank god it had fun games.

Its a controller with a cheap touch screen (capacitive vs resistive).

How can it be a tablet or a portable if you cant even separate it from the main system?

It was never intended as either. It's a controller. Period. As someone who posts comments on N4G, you should have gotten the memo by now.

I read that cloud gaming could something of the future...

To me it should have lunched with the Wii U. That's my only complaint about the controller. I love it!

But I would have loved it more if I could play my Wii U remotely.

umm.. but we already knew everything the gamepad had in it..which this article seems to NOT list all the features lol there more than jus a wifi card and a touch screen in it lol

So there were no "Scrects" as we already knew everything in it
