Nintendo Originally Flirted With 3D, HD Displays For Wii U Controller

Online gaming publication Kotaku has uncovered a patent filing from Nintendo which shows that the company was originally flirting with the idea of a 3D HD touch screen for Wii U. Nintendo’s patent filing states that the Wii U controller “might” feature a 3D display and an HD display. We already know that we won’t see the final controller until E3, so Nintendo may have some surprises in store for us.

      1. When I first read that, I thought you said “Fuck you man Im a homosexual that dropped out from high school and will suck cock for 1 dollar….” LOL

A NEW SPIDERMAN MOVIE IS COMING AND THIS ONE IS GONNA BE LIKE THE COMIC AND CARTOONS AND THEY KICKED OUT THAT GAY LOSER TOBY AND GOT A NEW ACTOR WHO RESEMBLES SPIDERMAN MORE AND THEYRE GOING TO INCORPORATE MORE VENOM AND LIZARD MAN AND THE STORY WILL BE DIFFERENT WITH FRESH NEW ACTORS AND YOU CAN SEE SPIDERMAN SWINGING FROM A FIRST-PERSON PERSPECTIVE AND THE GRAPHICS WILL BE BETTER AND ITS GOING TO BE CALLED: AMAZING SPIDERMAN! YA’LL BE SURE TO CHECK THE TRAILER OUT IN UTUBE IT LOOKS COOL THIS WILL BE SO EPICALLY EPIC OF EPICNESS! OMG SO EXCITED WHOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!!! NO MORE EMO PETER!

          1. Hey sickr if you post unbiased news why don’t you post news that kotaku has about a nintendo employee who help developed pikmin,super metriod and such commenting on how he loves the vita because it can do more than the 3dshit with pixilated low end graphic huh post it he said he loves it and hate working with underpowered systems that slow progress. btw resident evil revelation graphics equel to outdated resident evil 1 on gamecube 3ds has pixalated and slow fram rate issues not to mention the 3d can cause blindness according to mayoclinic reports and has crappy antialisis. go ahead post it post a nintendo employee choosing the superior systems because he developed a game for vita and he dev. stupid games like pikmin and super metriod so he knows 3ds is trash hes even making a game for vita cuz of 3ds limits. also ninty made dlc in japan smh go ahead ninty copy the pc it will be your downfall because pc is dominating. instead of wasting 400 bucks on wii u i can upgrade my pc with next gen graphics,3d heck pr buy an xbox codename duranga which now they say xbox duranga will be 10x more powerful than wii u have a andriod tablet and be cheaper than wii u…rip nintendo may apple destroy your handheld garbage.

            1. Are you serious? It’s always the people that do not know how to spell that are insulting. Maybe it is because stupid people are angry? What is more funny? How underpowered the DS in comparison to the PSP or how much the DS outsold the PSP? You need to look into things before you doubt Nintendo. Their consoles are not the best for graphics but unlike Microsoft and Sony they use all of that power instead of a little bot here and there. You just need to face it that there are different types of gamers out there. Next time don’t spurt out a load of rubbish and please speak English for the nice people that might want to understand you

              1. I find it more funny that people who call others idiots don’t know how to construct a sentence with proper punctuation. Also, I think you meant *typing*, not speaking, you moron. Wow Sickr, such a hypocrite… You yourself misspell words and misplace commas (or not add them at all). That’s why Nintendo sells a lot: because they have morons they can count on, morons like you Sickr.

                1. Finally! A troll who is capable of using correct grammar and spelling!
                  Who knew it was possible? :O

                  P.S. Sickr, y u no give ip bans?

      1. How is Microsoft copying the controller?Microsoft doesn’t even have anything right now.They have already released to the press that they have nothing to come back with because they still believe in the 360.Rumors are only rumors until it is actually revealed so don’t forget to get your facts straight.

    1. Yeah, I hate that.

      Eye Toy = Kinect
      Playstation Move = Wii

      I hope Microsoft and Sony don’t try to do controllers-with-screens, too. o.O

        1. And Wii copied Le Stick = Copy of a copy of a copy (:o
          N64 copied Vectrex
          NES gun copied Odessey
          Memory card was copied from NeoGeo
          Touchscreen was copied from Pilot
          WiiU=iPad copy
          Hope no one copies the copy of a copy! D8

          1. Past interviews debunk the last one. The Wii U controller was in development well before tablets stormed the marketplace.

            1. They already have Little Big Planet, thank you very much. :) As for the faggot that said Wii U was in development way before tablets needs to suck a dick. Nintendo has been copying the phone industries for a long time, little faggot. They themselves admitted the Gameboy SP’s design was based on the flip cell phones, which were popular at the time. Hell, they even copied the touchscreen, which came way before the Gameboy was even released. The Wii U stole the iTouch, they’re even stealing the App. store idea. Wow making up bullshit to defend Nintendo’s “innovation”… that’s the final nail in the coffin that proves the company is as much garbage as the sucker fantards.

          1. But what you DON’T know is that this is NOT Apple, this is not a company who take their consumers for fools and don’t make you pay way extra cash (Because with the Wii U, you can still use your Wii controllers) for unnecessary updates or pointless “new” hardware, at least Nintendo have enough dignity to repay your extra cash wasted on your expensive 3DS with free NES and GBA games, Apple wouldn’t do that to anyone.
            If you had half a brain, you’d know that.

      1. I don’t understand how people can complain that the controller is uncomfortable when they have never held one.Stupid fanboys.And the people that have got to hold one say that it is pretty comfortable.

        1. ^bias faggot and the ppl that said that are losers to. If ya little faggots are proud of a company that takes a strong stance of making games for little kids fine show your real face and no faces that you steal from google image or picfree don’t count. Go ahead show me your real faces one that isn’t stolen from facebook or sorts. Ya know ya can’t because ya know its embarrassing playing that crap at your age you nostalgia little queers. Btw sickr grow your hair longer and get a darker hue you look ugly and weak go eat more you dot face big nose brown eye freak.

        1. A use of proper spelling would seriously help this comment right here. “Capitalization” is the correct spelling, at least in U.S. English.

  1. so nintendo asked 3D out on a date because they “flirted” with the 3D? o_O LOL JK

    NINTENDO WE LOVE YOU! YOU ARE GOING TO MAKE US HAPPY!

  2. HD yes, 3d NO.. Nintendo must focus in the main system most, not in the controller! We need powerful wii U, not a powerful controller! hehehe

  3. I like how Nintendo always seem to look at new and innovative ways to make their products THEIRS and not follow the same old and generic mould. Keeps things fresh and also keeps people in suspense of what’s to come. Makes me proud to be a Nintendo fan. ^_^

      1. 1. The WiiU controller is a CONTROLLER it doesn’t have a GPU or a CPU like the ipad and since when did the ipad have buttons and sliders?
        2.) well of course it’s non portable like i said before its a CONTROLLER. Wait let me guess since it has a screen on it, that makes it a portable right?

        1. It IS portable sort of, you can stream games to the controller and play it like that, i’m pretty sure you should be able to take it on the go

      2. Number 1: The controller only sort of looks like an iPad
        Number 2: It’s a controller, so why should it be a portable gaming device?
        Number 3: “Last Era HD”? WTF? HD is here to stay for quite sometime

    1. That’s why they aren’t going to sell extra controllers in stores. If you want to play with multiple Wii U controllers you would have to have a friend bring his/her controller to your house and vice versa, at least that’s what Nintendo is talking about doing.

        1. >like the 3DS

          My 3DS, that i accidentally dropped like 60 time and one time even got hit by a rock says you are lying, of course that doesn’t mean my 3DS is unbreakable i’m just saying that is hard enough to keep playing for 3 years or so.

    2. No it won’t, it doesn’t do any processing and stuff, it just streams directly from the console, and most electronics cost less to make than you’d think, most of the money they charge is for profit/to recoop R&D and shipping and other costs…

  4. It doesn’t need either. 3D would be ruined by fingerprimts and will cost loads extra, and the lower resolution than a tv apparentaly makes it barely look any different to HD anyway, why pay extra for so little difference? All I want it is to be able to use it’s confirmed flash enabled browser without having to power on the console.

  5. I hope it’s at least HD, and I to Zeus that it’s not 3D. I like my 3DS, but not everything needs to be 3D, especially not a controller

  6. Dis wills be guds ninty hav think of everything.me hope dah range will works so I can takes it to dah toilet to masturbate ova porn without my mum catching me again.

  7. ok so what do u guys think about retro studios makeing a game like golden eye 007 for the wii u and 3ds tell me what u guys think

  8. People bitch about HD and 3D, I just hope the Wii U will be affordable, cause what’s the point of having and over-powerful system that’s gonna cost your ass’s skin? Just look at the PS3 and PS Vita. Great and powerful, yet unsuccessful because of their price.

  9. Touch screens, 3D, Motion control, buttons. When mind control becomes an option, the company that does it first will win. Other that that, Nintendo’s the only one still around that made those factors into $$$. Gaming $$$. Buttons, sure, they happened in the whatever-umpteenth century but Nintendo outlasted C64, Atari and (?) to be the longest users off ALL these technologies in the video game company so far. Please prove me wrong with an obscure reference to pong or something but, in reality, Nintendo does it first, and imitation is the sincerest form of flattery. Really, there’s only so much you can do and whoever puts out there first should be given the credit for trying.

  10. If the touch screen is in 3D (no glasses needed), this would be the most epic of surprises. Look forward to Nintendo dropping the A-Bomb at this June’s E3 in LA.
