Nintendo reveals the final product of the GamePad putting many rumors and speculations regarding the tablet-like controller to rest.
- Analog Control Sticks
- Comfort Design Modifications: IE it is comfortable to use long-term
- Gyro and Motion Sensors
- Touch Screens
- TV Remote
- Near Field Communication (Place an item near the sensor under the d-pad and the GamePad and object will transfer data creating an effect in game)
- Social Integration FeaturesVideo chat and Mii-Verse)
Looks like the Xbox360 and PS3 controllers had a one-night stand and forgot to use protection. Despite the striking resemblance to the Xbox360 controller, it’s sleek design and and chunky appearance could prove to benefit it’s users.
A price or availability date has yet to be announced, but this could be a crown jewel of all the previous Nintendo controllers to date. I personally, adored the GameCube controller. Everything was well placed, the size was manageable, and I ran a mean Ness on Super Smash Brothers Melee. We could hope to see Nintendo steer away from casual gaming, and perhaps enter a more active genre. Leave a thought or two below on what you think.
