After watching Nintendo’s e3 conference it is clear to se that there are some amazing games being released along side the WiiU, all of which are designed to specifically take full advantage of the GamePad. There is obviously a lot of debate as to whether or not the WiiU will be good enough to compete with the Playstation and Microsofts Xbox 360, I guess what it will always come down to is game choice. Obviously gaming
experience is important, but if you love a particular game franchise and it is not available for your particular console, then the gaming experience isn’t going to be very good by default.
I am sure that the Nintendo WiiU
will be an amazing console, however I can see one terrible flaw with the console and that is speaking as a Father of three children who can just about agree on their names. The actual WiiU can only ever accept two GamePads but in all cases, as highlighted above, the actual packs only contain one GamePad. Obviously individual GamePads will be available however at what cost? I can just picture it now, Christmas morning and Father Christmas has delivered a wonderful Nintendo WiiU as a family present and then trying to decide who gets to use the GamePad first. Even if Father Christmas has been really generous and delivered an extra GamePad, for me one of my kids are going to have to either sit out and wait for a GamePad to become available, or play with another controller while the other two are getting the full experience from the GamePad. Then comes that dreaded time when it is time to share and pass the GamePad to some else, World War III breaks out on Christmas morning and in all likely hood the GamePad is destroyed from all the snatching and grabbing.
Fighting Over Games Controllers
Obviously not all children are like mine, some families are calm serene households; if such a concept actually exists then please get in contact
with me and I will pay you to let me know your secret. However in all seriousness, the GamePad will become quite a fundamental part of the WiiU gaming experience, this is not just a case of waiting for any old controller and I simply see a few problems arise. As I have mentioned, as matters currently stand, you can only connect two GamePads, but perhaps later down the line Nintendo will implement the capability to add more than two.
