Havent used my WiiU in about a month, went to turn it on today and now my game pad wont turn on at all. I tried unplugging the battery for about 10-15 seconds then reconnecting it to no avail. Also tried the obvious plugging it into the AC adapter. Anyone know what else could be wrong with it, or am I stuck having to send it in to Nintendo for repair?

There is a well known issue that happened to me a month or so ago. After not playing my Wii U for several weeks, I wanted to finish NSMBU, so I noticed my gamepad would not turn on or take a charge. The solution to this problem is to find an extremely small "eyeglass" size screwdriver, remove the back plate, take out the battery, wait a couple minutes and plug it back in.

Your gamepad should accept a charge and work correctly. This worked for me anyways.
But the PS4 has GDDR5 RAM. That's 2 more than DDR3! I bet PCs will take at least 5 years to catch up to this beast.

I believe the PS4 will have problems also. This gen is worse than the one before it and the WiiU is the lead for the even worse next gen. The Vita also. I/m enjoying my PSP3001 much more on the go and mostly on my SD and HDTVs.
