Nintendo Flirted With 3D, HD Displays for Wii U Controller

This holiday, the Wii U, Nintendo's upcoming game console, goes on sale. The Kyoto-based game maker revealed the machine last summer and continues to provide new details about the consoles; however, there is still so much that's unknown.

Nintendo's Wii U patent fillings recently surfaced, providing a look at what the company was planning. The documents are from Sept. 2011, and they do clearly point out "statements herein do not correspond to any particular actual product that may be eventually be made available to consumers." That means what Nintendo filed might not make its way into the final product.

The story is too old to be commented.

Though, I don't want to spend an arm and a leg to buy one, either (catch-22, scenario).

Would probably add a bunch of weight too.

Rumor is the are going to use a resistive touchscreen.

Wii U controller sounding like a 3DS? Kinect on Xbox?

Expensive controllers are the future of gaming.

Even phones have HD screens now. Cost isn't an issue for pixel resolution. I'm surprised it's not 3D also, given the 3DS.
