The rumors about the next Wii controller’s screen had been bubbling for awhile. Still, we weren’t expecting it to look like a tablet. We’re not sure how we feel about the NES Max-style analog pads, since they don’t have the same tensile feel as a typical analog stick. The controller can’t be used as a portable handheld, which is understandable—Nintendo wouldn’t want to cannibalize 3DS sales, and cross platform synergy between the controller and the 3DS would be problematic. Either way, there are plenty of questions left unanswered until we see some games instead of just tech demos. Which, to be fair, are pretty cool.
