It also helps saving the disc drive from wear and tear, lowers heat and noise levels.

I install all my games on the 360 because the disc drive is louder than our vacuum cleaner. Luckily the cooling fans are at a tolerable level.

So Nintendo should give us the option to install games to decrease loadtimes and noise levels.

Well, we know for sure Google and Nintendo worked together for the last April's Fool... so doing something together for the next console wouldn't totally be out of the question.

I sure hope they do, even if it means we have to leave the disc in the tray.

Yeah, I'm still expecting at least one or two more leaks big enough to result in 500+ -post threads. But Nintendo does run a pretty tight ship.

Already got it covered chums, www.threemix.co.uk has been specially prepared for E3, the site has some of the finest servers in the land. If NeoGaf goes own then we can all discuss E3 there, my chum Rikki would give us a royal welcome.

It's surprisingly odd how awkward having the slide pad on the top-left and the bottom-right looks to my eyes, now that I see an implementation of it (also, having the analogs aligned vertically would mean that left-handers could potentially have the option of flipped controls). Either way, it looks a little cramped. Probably, it could stand to have a bigger chassis. Then my hands would not hurt when I play. And it'd have bigger screens. And it'd have a longer battery life.

I would probably buy this, though. I am highly likely to buy my first dual-screened Nintendo system if it had the extra analog directional built in. And then I could buy tons of the best NDS games for cheap to start me off! :D

Well, I was speculating earlier on how they could do something with the 2D Mario games which have been shown off or discussed for both platforms. It was sort of my idea for a workaround for having two similar games on the market at once. (edit: I was beaten on this, this time)

The backup plan

Backup plan to the backup plan is to mass register on vandal.net and take over their Wii U subforum.

The only actual news was from badly-translated speculation ten months ago. Also a logical leap from a slide showing that 1.1 GFLOPS would be enough to handle Samaritan at full effects at 720p/30fps.

Doubling as a stand will be pretty handy for propping the controller up on the coffee table or while watching Netflix

What would you suggest? The pad on top? People will just bitch about that too. You can't make a completely comfortable handheld like this without either making it huge and or really ugly.

Don't worry, if it did look like this I'm sure someone will make a grip for it or something.

I agree, but I didn't want to be boo'd at for not having flipped sticks. Oh well, that dream is gone.

We dont know for sure if this connectivity is anything solid either. Iwata said "the software will work together in some fashion". That could mean anything from transfering characters between the two games to full cross platforming gaming.

In Zelda, you could have the Wii U pad on a table displaying the dungeon map etc, whilst you control link with the Wii remote+ and nunchuck.

Or

You see Link running around on the TV and while the Wii U pad is on the table, it gives you the view point of 'Navi'. The extra view point could give you clues for solving puzzles.

Please Nintendo, just stick to the Wii U pad. Don't mix in the wiimote at all. So confusing for consumers.

If Aonuma is to be believed, and console Zelda wont be going back from WiiMotion+, then I could see this being very accurate. The Wii U tablet will act as map, compass and Link's satchel.

I thought the oposite was true. Haven't they said several times that they want to stick with motion controls for Zelda?

I finally got around to playing through Echoes in February and Sanctuary fortress was amazing. The high tech setting (nice change of pace since the series usually emphasizes organic settings), the scary mechs (Ing Smashers = yikes!) are awesome. Torvus Bog is a fantastic area as well.

Fair enough. I just think the bottom one would make it awkward...but I have no idea since it doesn't actually exist.
