Next step of talking in consoles. Video Chat...MS no longer social console king.

I like all these miiu features. Really thinking hard if I should buy one or not...

If this bad boy can have my friends on the controller in real time while the multiplayer game is on hdtv, then i'll be very impressed! Just a thought...

Video calls are a great addition...

I agree with 100% I don't care about all this social networking stuff on my consoles, they are for gaming.

And I really would love for Nintendo to create new and fresh IPs instead of living off of the nostalgia.

Question does anyone think the the devs at Nintendo are skilled enough to create new IPs, because all they do is just release their same franchises with different levels in them?

Really guy tables can do this already and PS3 and 360 have video chat

again welcome nintendo to the current gen

NLGSean2777d ago

Um... can the Xbox 360 and PS3 controllers do it?

trounbyfire2777d ago (Edited 2777d ago )

you got me there its not like you'll be near you tv anyway with kinect or the ps eye( up to 6 people video chat) but yeah you just owned me.

GTFOOH with that weak reply, PSv can do the same facetime with front and rear cameras yet we are not talking about it because of the beautiful OLED HD screen and rear touch, and games

wiiu controller is a tablet with a joystick its not even multitouch, get over it

its a game controller it will be near you console where you kinect or ps eye is, so yeah

It's not an amazing feature by any means, but with the PS3 and 360 you have to be directly in front of where you placed the camera. Since it's on a controller for the WiiU you can just stay within wireless range of the system, and have a video call. So you can do it anywhere in your house instead of just right in front of the tv. I think that that's pretty neat.

Actually, you can walk around your house with the WiiU controller so you can video chat 24/7.....
