Nintendo Wii U controller: Wii U can use more than one
Wii U may have the processing power to support multiple touchscreen controllers, but it's not necessarily something that developers will be focused on...
Still confused about the Wii U’s powers and capabilities? You’re not alone. T3 had one of the world’s first plays on the new console, but Nintendo was being so vague about specs and plans that it was hard to know what to make of it.
Reggie spoke to analyst Michael Patcher, who told IGN: “They were particularly unclear about whether the console would support more than one of their tablet-like controllers; Mr. Miyamoto said no, but Reggie said yes (to me in a meeting)… Obviously, they intend to ship the console with only one of these controllers, so it is unlikely that anyone will develop games that require two.”
