Looks like nobody's copying the Wii U or supporting Nintendo's vision for gaming

Like the PS4 controller's, the nex Xbox controller is also rumored to not feature a screen. Why is this bad for the Wii U? This makes third party support for Wii U versions of future games more difficult because devs will need to spend time making use of the screen on the Wii U's gamepad. This means shoehorning in functionality that wasnt needed nor in mind for the game since the other versions wont have it.

It honestly feels like Nintendo just created a problem for themselves raising the Wii U prive by having a screen on the controller that will hardly ever be used

I'm pretty sure it's common knowledge that Sony totally ripped off the Miiverse idea for the PS4;)

So there you have it, Sony copying the Wii U.

Possibly. Possibly developers will make some exclusives for the Wii U, rather than try to make a game that works with and without a 2nd screen so that it can be on all systems.

I'm glad it's not the same. if everything in this world was very familiar, things would be boring. I'm glad Nintendo just does its own thing and lets the other companies try to build an un-upgradable PC. At least Nintendo gives new ways of playing.

Looks like I am sticking to Wii U and PC this gen. Wii U for gameplay/tried and tested 1st party games and PC for everything else. Win win for me :D Best gameplay best graphics!

Plus the Vita being used to stream games Is yet another rip-off of the WiiU. A very expensive rip-off at that.

That's way I see it. Why couldn't the developer make a game for the WiiU and just disregard the second screen all together? The game logo could just be on the screen the whole time and the screen is never even used for gameplay. Then any game that comes out for a console without a screen can be ported across all platforms.

There's a simple reason why the industry hasn't jumped on the bandwagon: Nintendo hasn't proven its newest gimmick yet. There's still no AAA showcase from Nintendo demonstrating the Gamepad's potential. Nintendo Land was a good attempt but no cigar. Same with ZombiU.

This is what I'm hoping for. My favorite 3rd party titles on the Wii were unique to the system like No More Heroes and Red Steel 2 rather than trying to be a gimped version like COD. Also, considering how generic a lot of the industry feels now, I would vastly prefer something that utilizes the gamepad in some really interesting and unique ways.

Suda 51 said he was full of ideas for it and No More Heroes 3 looks very likely!
