Games Pundit has managed to find out that more than one controller can be used with the system as well as some additional details from an anonymous source.
God. EVERY console should be able to use more than one.
You don't know what makes up the controller of the Wii U. And the Wii U can use more than one controller, just not the one with the big screen at the moment. It probably takes a lot of power to render and then stream stuff to that controller. And if Nintendo has to put something more powerful under the hood to make this happen, then expect for it to cost more for the console.
Hope its true
I know its true "The console is also 2 times more powerful than the Xbox 360 in its current state" hmmmm thats nice for next gen needs to be a lil bit more powerful though.
Its probably 4-5 times more powerful if Nintendo goes with a high end R700 GPU
i don't think Xbox 360 care too much about graphical power , they are not making as many hardcore titles anymore so there's less demand for it . On the other hand it may rival the Ps3 but remember the Cells processing power is equivalent to more than a quad-qore
well one report said 50% more powerful than the ps3 ad this one says 2x the 360 in its current state. quadcores now a days are basically slow. an i3 can take on some of the best quads. and system tech of today should have no reason not to surpass the best chips from 6 years ago.
It's 80% more powerful than the 360 and 50% more then ps 3
I suppose it'll be true if the console is streaming similar things to all controls. Like, the same screen with just small differences like items. But, streaming four completely different signals to all controls will require a beast of a machine. I mean, 3D gaming is exhausting, and it's two signals with one input. Now, four signals and four inputs shall be really hard to pull out.
I'm interested in finding the truth to all this. TBH I can understand the reasoning behind the one controller since streaming from device to another is quite taxing. Not sure how the Wii U would be able to cope streaming different data to say 4 different controllers. Regardless, interested in knowing more.
I actually think Nintendo is playing coy on purpose. Let's let them speculate.....let them say it's going to be $500, only use one controller, and rivals current gen. Then we will announce it can use multiple controllers, $299, and more powerful than PS3/360....lol.
"WE"? I hope you have a mouse in your pocket cause i willing to bet you dont work for nintendo.
How can this get approved? It's likely GamesPundit are making this up to gain traffic to their website. Scandalous.
No, that's not likely. Maybe my source is lying, I don't know, but this is NOT made up. Getting hits for bogus information is pointless as I have said before when people were accusing the PlayStation Vita name to be fake. If you don't want to believe me then don't, that's your problem.
"Maybe my source is lying, I don't know" Time to get more reliable/trustworthy sources.
How do you know that this isn't true? My source said that he has seen this things with his own eyes and is very particular about it so I doubt very much that he is lying.
@ plbelanger Anyone can lie. And most people do.
"Maybe my source is lying, I don't know" Don't think that counts as a source then.
And btw, im not saying it won't get more than 1 controllers able to conenct with it. It most likely will. Doesn't mean you can post stuff like that.
Why wouldnt the WiiU support more than one controller? That would be stupid for nintendo to do. It would cut their accessory sales in half.
They said at E3 that it currently only supported 1 controller. That doesn't mean it won't support more when it's done(I mean they said all the hardware and whatnot was not final yet) but as of E3 it does only support one controller.
Wonder if they're talking about more than one WiiU controller, or like by every other indication, all of the old Wii controllers?
They were very specific in the article, saying that they definitely were talking about the new controllers.
i don't care much about how many controllers , it's more about a controller with triggers that's not gonna cost you over $100 and it's a solid one that feels good in your hands for extended play so i can play blockbuster titles such as BFBC3.
You break controllers playing Battlefield...? Lol.
no lol , however i just feel as if the button layout spacing isn't the best for shooters.
Wiimote controllers yes WiiU tablets......maybe
"The console is also 2 times more powerful than the Xbox 360 in its current state" twice as powerful as the 360/ps3 (they are practically the same, ps3 with a very slight edge maybe, or just better developers).....thats all that matters to me finally, something that can max my tv out with 1080p and anti aliasing besides my pc I cannot wait for the wii u and I am hoping that nintendo really delivers~!
This would be awesome if true. I my self would not have a problem dropping a hundred for an extra controller. I also think other people would not have a problem with that either. The reason I say that is because people bought guitars that could only be used on one game. I myself have payed a heavy price years ago for some nice guitars for either Guitar Hero or Rock Band. So paying a high price for a new controller that can be used on more then just one game would not be a problem for me. Because like I said I bought guitars & you can only play them on one game. But with this new controller you can use it with every game. So I hope this turns out true & Nintendo will sell extra controllers.
lol, I would hope so.
I doubt Nintendo would release a one controller only console. Nintendo, no matter how much they change have always been about connectivity and playing with friends.
They really need at least 2 that work for any multiplayer or co-op games. This thing will sell like hotcakes for families. Kids can go to separate rooms and play a game together off the console in the living room. That's a pretty good selling point. And as long as the system is about 1.5 times as powerful as the 360 of PS3, then the solo experience or the U part of WiiU will be more than enough to satisfy the people who want Nintendo to get back to their roots as far as a console goes.
unfortunately no, Miyamoto said it himself, only 1 WiiU controller can connect to the console. I think Miyamoto's word is worth a little more then someone who claims they have inside knowledge from their "sources".
What's the point of even speculating? Nintendo has clearly said that it's only one controller per console. The controller won't even be sold separately.
I didn't know whether or not to actually make an article about this, seeing as how this was already up, but Michael Pachter got told by Reggie that it would support two Wii U controllers. Here's the article if it isn't posted already by the time I'm done writing. http://wii.ign.com/articles...
I believe it.
Seriously hope everything this article says is true.
