    the thing that'll bite is the controller.... yeah, it looks awkward, but so did the wii (and it work out...well... meh in the end as well) ... but besides that, the screen is going to put a pretty penny on it..... like 50-100 just to play with another friend... that's going to hurt...

    Yeah sounds like Nintendo weren't fully prepared.

    The articles from IGN and company have actually been saying, surprisingly, it's actually pretty light

    thing's over a year to a year and a half away, there won't be any pricing information on it at this point.

    From the presser, I took it as it will vary depending on how the developer chooses to use it.

    EA (who seemed to come out as their main example) talked about the idea in Madden of just using that screen to house the plays/playbook selection between plays (so as not to clutter up the screen or something along sharper more immersive experience or something) among other things with other games

    As interesting as it is, it's not a reason to get one.

    I wonder if PS3 and Vita will do that.

    Never really said it was. Am just late to the conversation and wanted to clear that picture here was for a specific...don't really know who was watching the pressers and who wasn't



    To some degree they may be able to. I'm not overly familiar with the tech involved here. They work on like a cloud streaming or something with some games right? That seems like it could be tweaked to work with the transfer back and forth idea (though I wonder if they will have to use one cartridge/ or two) but could that allow them to create a 1 controls the other or both simultaneously usage system?
