Well, I have to say, after E3 last year I was a little concerned about the way the WiiU was being handled (mostly the name), but after seeing some of the things that came out of the Nintendo conference, I’m a little more excited than I was previously. One of the heavy hitters was the ability for the WiiU to support 2 gamepads at once, an issue which was not discussed last year.
Anyway, there is a downside. It seems as though according to the NintendoAmerica twitter, the controllers will only be able to run at 30 fps instead of the normal 60 when both pads are active. Oh well, you win some, you lose some.
