Did Wii U copy Xbox Smartglass?

Just seems way to similar tbh. Smartglass is a bit smoother though that the Wii U controller.

They've been also developing the Gamepad before iPad came out, although sorry, I forgot where that source was.

Apparently, the original Wii was gonna use a touchscreen pad:

In the same way the Playstation Move was in development before the Wii came out, right?

Yep, Move was first demoed in 2000 whereas the Wii remote wasn't even pitched to Nintendo until 2001.

Also funny how they seem to think the IPad was the first tablet, lol.

Sort of, except while Sony tabled the Move after demonstrating it once until Nintendo proved the technology would be popular, Nintendo decided to make the tablet controller first.
