So the Wii U is not powerful enough to run 2 controllers at once

So how am I going to play with my friends?

But clearly Nintendo has made sacrifices. One of the big drawbacks is that the processor/GPU combination is too slow to power the displays for a TV and for two tablets at the same time when running high-speed games. Right now, Wii U games make use of only a single tablet controller played with a TV. To run a game with two tablets used at the same time, Nintendo will reportedly have to scale back the framerate of a game, running it at perhaps 30 frames per second instead of 60 frames per second.


So other words if a game can use more than one controller it's going to cut into the performance of the game? Who thought this was a good idea?

I don't know if you realize this or not, but the human eye can only process about 10-12 frames per second. Sure, the extra ones will smooth is out a drop, but going from 60 to 30 really doesn't make too much of a difference in all honesty.


So why were people complaining about The Hobbit prescreen being shown in 48 fps instead of the normal 24 fps?

Damn Nintendo. What's the point of a gimmick like that in your next gen console if you're not gonna let gamers use it properly?

Fail, fail, fail, fail.


Guess what this is Liney? a rumor.
Weren't you in another topic shouting RUMOR RUMOR?
What a hypocrite.

["So the Wii U is not powerful enough to run 2 controllers at once"]

Except that it is powerful enough to run two at once, and even TC admits it. Never mind that the whole thing is just more troll-rumors.

Massive fail, TC.

u need to have scalability in a console release. u cant play all your cards on day one for f'sake. ninty wouldnt want to focus on to many seperate things on launch and direct attention to the price if a new controller too. Itll come when there is a game and ninty are ready for it.

My buddy brought his gamepad to my place. We synced both gamepads with my Wii U and fired up Mario. The Wii U melted. So pissed right now.
