Buying a Wii U in March. Questions...

#1palkia19Posted 1/25/2014 8:36:16 PM
What's the furthest distance the gamepad can be from the system to operate? Say, I don't have a tv, buying a flat screen down the year, can it operate with just the gamepad? Can I stream movies/anime on the browser? Does it take long to load stuff? Can the gamepad play Wii games? What's the battery life on the gamepad? Can multiple gamepads play on one system? Thanks.

For me, 14 feet, some have said 6, others 10. You do need a tv to set up, afterwards no.

Usually no you cant stream, but you habe youtube netflix, amazon and hulu, however I have found occasional streams that do work on browser.

It use to take long, not so much anymore.

The gamepad can act as a tv for wii but you still need wiimote. Battery life is 5 hours for me.

They once announced two gamepad, but as of now just one.

Thanks a lot. One last question, can the Wii U Pro controller operate the menu interface, miiverse, options apps etc?

You're welcome. Pro controller can operate menu interface, miiverse... I have a memory of doing it with wiimote... so you should be able to. Options im not sure. Haven't tried with apps. Sorry I cant be more help on that.

The pro controller cannot operate the settings menu or be used for the eshop store... why, i have no earthly idea.

Thanks guys. It's a shame the pro controller can't do a lot more than gaming though. Anyways, looking forward to this regardless.
