The greatest inventory organizer and map viewer ever made.

Also this http://www.eurogamer.net/articles/digitalfoundry-secrets-of-the-wii-u-gamepad

and it states: "The GamePad itself isn't anywhere near as complex as even the most basic Android tablet - essentially it's a standard game controller, with a touch-screen and a WiFi card, paired up with a decoder chip for the incoming video stream."

So whats the excuse this time when Sony and M$ have fully functioning tablets for their consoles? Can't say innovation to Nintendo xP

The excuse, and I wouldn't really call it that, is that without the Gamepad the hypothetical tablet controllers from Sony and Microsoft would not exist. Furthermore, I would have to wonder what the purpose of a tablet controller would be for the PS4 and 720 considering no one wants to pay $500 for a controller.

No....No it wasn't because Nintendo can't explain dick....Did you watch the unveil for the Wii U at E3. No definte answers what this new piece of hardware was, is it a Tablet, a OVER GLORIFIED CONTROLLER, a new console.

I understood what it was, they showed what it could do and I put two and two together and figured that it only takes a few hints from tablets, but it's streaming from the console itself.

Only a moron or an uninterested party would think this was anything more than a controller....even from the very first photo/footage of the Wii U. The fact that you're trying to insult somebody or prove a point is infinitely sad.
