Wii U can support multiple Wii U controllers, says Nintendo
Reggie’s been speaking to industry analyst Michael Patcher, who claims that the console will actually be able to fully support the use of (at least) two controllers at the same time, due to some clever work in solving bandwidth issues.
The slate-like controller with inbuilt 6.2-inch screen has all the necessary buttons for more core games like FIFA and Call of Duty, but offline (local) multiplayer would have proved impossible if your rival was forced to use the old Wiimote and nunchuck.
It’s news that may actually help Nintendo, too; the company’s share prices tumbled shortly after the announcement. Are you a fan of the whole Wii U concept? Let us know on the Gadget Helpline Twitter feed.
