Both systems have big wide controllers with screens in the middle that display stats and other helpful hints. Also with both systems you can just take the controller/memory stick with you and play games portable. Nintendo isn't doing anything original they basically took the idea from the Dreamcast. They should pay Sega royalties.

**LOL** Actually, Nintendo evolved it quite a bit. For instance, the GamePad has a colour touch-screen that is bright and vivid, while the Dreamcast's VMU was a black and white screen that at times could be incredibly difficult to look at in certain lighting conditions. The VMU could also be used as a stand-alone unit. Further, the VMU was very similar to another unit known as the PocketStation that Sony manufactured. So guess what? It all points back to Sony.

The VMU could actually be considered portable as it doesn't need the console for separate functionality.

The stock Dreamcast controller didn't feature a relatively high fidelity touch screen, motion controls, speakers, IR or even a second analog stick.

If anything, you should complain how Microsoft ripped off the Dreamcast for the original Xbox controller and, in turn, produced the 360 controller, lol.

Well except the Dreamcast couldn't do any other the things the Wii U gamepad can, the thing for the Dreamcast was basically a tamagotchi

I suspect that people see the Dreamcast today as a wonderful, unique, and beautiful console, mostly because of nostalgia, and the fact that it was SEGA's last console. If so good and lovable now, then why didn't it get that same love from the fans and average players back in the day.

I'm not saying it's a bad console, but it certainly wasn't the behemoth console some make it out to be. Or is it that just because it was SEGA's last system, it is so worshipped today?
