Nintendo EAD boss Shigeru Miyamoto has suggested that 3DS consoles could be used as additional controllers for the firm's upcoming Wii U console.
I have to admit that would be a nice feature for 3ds owners.
But with only one control stick, and only 2 shoulder-area buttons, it wouldn't work for all games. They had better release additional controllers for the WiiU. And they're dancing around the subject a lot.
Whos copying who now??? We know its comming so lets just start it....
Remember Wind Waker?(Legend of Zelda series), that game had "Gamecube to Gba" connectivity. Nintendo was doing it before the current generation.
Exactly...people say Sony copied Nintendo with Move and lots of other things... its tech was in development since BEFORE Nintendo Wii came out/was announced...see? I can do that too. The copy BS is exactly that, fanboy BS.
This was stated like months ago! Nice try and fail.
See my coment above yours? Whos fail??
Yours does EU. I am not talking for my health..this man stated in Nintendo Power months back that 3DS could be used for "future nintendo console".
THe DS could be used as a controller in Pokemon Battle Revolution back in 2007, Gamecube and GBA had controller usage in 2003. What the hell are you talking about Eu Nintendo isn't copying anybody this was their idea to start with.
Remember in Pokemon Colosseum when one can connect their Gameboy Advance to the Gamecube and battle? Remember when the DS connect to the Wii in Pokemon Battle Revolution and can battle wirelessly? Nintendo has been doing this for a while now. I also do remember being able to connect your Pokemon Gold Silver and Crystal games to Pokemon Stadium 2.
Well, that would be one hell of an expensive controller.
It is nice :) The more they can integrate their products with each other, the higher the value of each product. I can't see that Sony won't do the same with Playstation Vita. It is going to happen and its great :)
That would be Awesome! You might think it's an expensive controller, but I bet many fans out there that have the Wii probably have a DS, so rather then having to always bring controllers over to peoples houses or having to buy more, you can use your handheld which you might would of purchased already (probably for Pokemon 3DS lol)
Because the Wii U controller is gonna be supper expensive. at least $100 a pop.
Could be used as a controller,sure but he said nothing about it being used as a second screen ! Because we all know that the 3DS can't handle the graphics that the Wii-U is pushing ! Only an ignorant fool would think otherwise unless the graphics are gonna get dumbed down on the 3DS screen. so this still isn't really a big deal ! I was able to play my Wii with the gamecube controller,and you could plug in a SEGA controller into your Atari and play with that too ! This isn't something new or revolutionary at all *EDIT* "Our basic premise is that you can use one (controller) with a system," said Miyamoto "If we got to an idea of having multiple (controllers) it might be just more convenient for people to use their Nintendo 3DS and have a way to connect that" "That being said, we are doing research about if someone brings their controller to their friends house and they want to play together on Wii U to whether or not something like that would be possible" See,there is nothing in his words that suggest that the 3DS screen could work like the Wii-U controller. Not saying that it couldn't,but if they managed to do so,then the graphics WILL get dumbed down,the device just wont be able to handle it.
im glad nintendo is still thinking on this. the 3DS is gonna need as much spotlight as possible on the wiiu. but i trust everything will work out fine
