am i the only one who is more amazed by how he used the controller to look around like in a real car than the graphics?

Wow those graphics looked so real, it looked just like Tokyo!

Feature looks cool but I would like to see how it would work in a real game.

*Plays GTA V on Wii U. Cops coming. Takes eyes off TV and looks on tablet over should. Crashes into building and dies*

Every tech demo I have seen is brilliant. But all I am not getting here is the 'how' in the use of these features. Also, I am wondering how the tablet controller would play in a lot of games and what is the ratio of TV to Tablet time in when viewing. I am basically still confused yet impressed all at the same time.

Crystal Chrnonicle/Four Swords gamestyles?

The mario party demo where they had to find the 5th guy(Mario) was neat but nothing really that great.

I think I would like to see the screen used for puzzles and looking in things. Open a chest, look on the screen, open your inventory. Kind of makes the Wii U like an HD DS. One concern is the issues of looking at the screen and the controller at the same time. The Wii U still uses the old remotes too. Too many questions.

represents the evolution of the gba/gc connectivity. A perfect example was the pacman game where the other players looked at the tv and could not see the whole maze. The main player, using the gba, could see the entire maze and was chomping around.

Or how in LoZ WW there was the tingle tuner. They can also use the tablet to pick plays in sports games. Just needs to be more tablets or have them officially state the 3ds w/circle pad can act as an additional tablet controller.

For a game like GTA i can see the tablet being used when performing a driveby, tvscreen still showing the car while the tablet has a first person view out the window, And while not in the car it could be used as a smartphone for the maincharacter.

Another neat idea i hope they implement on Alien Colonial marines is to use the tablet as the alienradar, imagine entering a steamy/cold area and a layer of condensated water/frost forming on the screen making it harder to see the aliens, then swiping the touch screen to remove mentioned layer.

those are just some of many great things that will be possible with the tablet.

Trees could use some work, but otherwise tech demo is impressing me. Certainly showcasing that the Wii U has a hefty shift in Power from PS3/X360 if you ask me if that's a real-time demo. How much so I would love to know. I wish Nintendo would spill the specs. Either way I expect a decent level of graphics above last gen. No Specs is worrying factor though.

I am doubtful Wii U has less than 1 GB RAM in the system. I am hopeful 2 GB is used. I know Sony and Microsoft are likely aiming for 2 GB. If Wii U has only 1 GB it will be a limiting factor.

I want Wii U now (proper) :)

I hope Zelda HD looks exactly like the DEMO when the Wii U comes out.

Why couldn't it end up looking better? :D

@ Lf_sIcKmAn

Wow, I m really surprised to see 4 disagrees so far.

Well I do agree with you that the Zelda HD should look a lot better than the E3 Demo. But lets be fair, when you add the play mechanic, AI, Camera view functions, etc, the GPU/CPU/MEM will in fact take a performance hit. And, of course, the same goes for the Tokyo Street Demo as well .So far, Every demo Nintendo have shown, doesn't really show the real potential of the Wii U's hardware capability simply because all we get from the Demo is wonderful graphics with few objects moving through space, no character interactions, no physic collisions, more just to list a few. So until Nintendo releases a Demo that show everything off, it won't be nothing more than beautiful still back grounds.
