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.

See my coment above yours? Whos fail??

NESpower2691d ago

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)
