Legendary games developer Shigeru Miyamoto has confirmed to Kotaku that the Wii U controller will feature an built-in web browser. Apparently Miyamoto considers this addition to the Wii U tablet controller the biggest design accomplishment Nintendo has managed for the new console. Do you imagine that you will use the Wii U tablet controller to browse the web when you’re not gaming?
“You have a screen available at any time that you can check,” he explained. “This dedicated second screen, and the way people may use it, not just for gaming, but to do things like browse the Internet, is the Wii U’s single, biggest design accomplishment.
“When you look at most TVs in home nowadays it takes awhile for them to turn on. That becomes a barrier for people.”
