A Bioware representative has revealed that Mass Effect 3 for the Wii U will feature off TV play, meaning that you will be able to play the entire game on the controller away from the television. Other developers have yet to say whether their games support this mode.
nice, what other games does off TV play?
i hope new mario bros u
darksiders 2 does also AND PLEASE ASSASINS CREED 3 offplay0.0 if you can singleplayer that offtv or multiplayer online off tv…then OMG:P
New Super Mario Bros U has already been confirmed to have off TV play. And as for Assassins Creed 3 who knows.
You should be able to play any game that uses dual analog or button mashing motion controlled games would probably be awkward
Halright!I think this game is gonna be greate
Youre not first until you take my penis out of your butt.
all games that don’t require the gamepad should have off tv play as an option.
That was very genius of BioWare. You can play Mass Effect 3 on the Wii U Game Pad while your little sibling or dad watches TV. If Nintendo can do that with New Super Mario Bros. U, so can BioWare.
Everyone developer can do it if they want, Nintendo said so. Its not like BioWare is god for thinking of this for the game. Not to be mean its just that your comment sounds a little cocky.
Darksiders II developers said that its take them 5 minutes to make the game works in the controller , so its not big deal .
The thing about the “Off Screen” feature, is that it seems to works best in games that are setup more traditionally. If you build your game from the ground up to REALLY use the Wii U’s feature of two screens, you can’t include the “Off Screen” feature since you’ll build the game based on two screens.
So, it’s a PERFECT for 3rd party ports. Even if you took a 3rd party game and ported to Wii U without taking advantage of the system’s individual features, “Off Screen” play alone would make it the definitive version for me. And, as the Darksider’s Devs already confirmed, it literally takes only 10 minutes of work and a few lines of code to activate the “Off Screen” feature in a game. So it’s no effort, and a HUGE extra feature on identical 3rd party ports.
Right at the 6:08 mark. Dev talking about how easy it is to add the “Off Screen” feature to a game on Wii U. The whole interview is great, too.
This is legit. Aeolus would agree, legit. Aeolus is such a cute boy, legit :)
yup it’s epic
Give me a hug Aeolus :)
We know you are both the same person, this sad little need to big yourself up as some kind of legitimate troll is pathetic. Have fun making yourself known on a website only a fraction of people on the whole internet visit. Grow up, because you are beyond boring.
I’m not even the real one>.>….im just same name but i don’t even troll…
Dont care, dont believe you. You’re not as funny, nor as clever, as you think you are.
The real Aeolus is a Sony drone and has a green avatar and a pixel the size of Tretton’s you know what.
Um no, I’m not Aeolus. I thoight he was the ignorant one. I’ve been on this blog far longer then he has. But I do believe people do talk to themselves on here, which is in fact, very weird.
i’ll buy it although i already had a copy…
This is freaking epic playing while someone watches tv?
Twice the amount of calibrating.
Calibrations… we have dismissed this claim.
I had reach but, she had flexibility.
If this has off tv play does this mean the gamepad doesn’t have any additional features like arkham city since i don’t see how you can those features if it has off tv play.
I would assume it’s optional. Even then you would be getting the same experience as the competitors.
Maybe it’s both or just an option? a very nice option indeed then:p
I think the screen shows map etc or maybe some features while your playing on the tv. atleast i hope so still nice……When my parents want to watch tv i can just turn it to the gamepad^^
microsoft copies it owait…(smartglass)
yeah thats the sweet part, if a annoying brother nags to watch tv, he can have it his way and i still can play :)
Nice! And a question, i saw on NSMBU on the tablet you can only make places for the characters to walk on, but can you play by yourself or even as a character in NSMBU with the tablet?
i hope they add that as an option yes that would be awesome
They have shown that if you play the game alone you can use the GamePad (as opposed to a Pro or Wiimote), so presumably it will support Off TV Play. If not, that’d suck. I know it’s a small screen, but it would be cool if you could prop it up and have 2 people sit next to each other to play on it too.
I kinda inspected this kind of feature in almost every WiiU games, but It’s cool to heard!
Did I mention I love Bioware? Because I do
it shows it here
i got a virus from that site. So NO
dude dont put on that site. people can get viruses on that
sorry about that i found the youtube video :D
Melanie Falkner has got the goods. I’d enjoy running around her house with her panties on my head.
Um the girl in the vid said ALL wii u games will have off tv play
I’d say that was a mistake on her end, and she mispoke. Nintendo themselves said there would be something on the game package to indicate when a game uses that feature.
This will look amazing on a that compasitive screen.
That’s it, I’m sold. I live with five younger brothers and sisters so playing an M rated game on the living room tv doesn’t really work out but this will work great for me.
first of all, awesome picture! second yes! I will pick this up! This is why i love Nintendo and developers that support it, they bring some awesome stuff so our gameplay is more enjoyable :)

My TV and 360 fight over the HDMI cable, with the 360 usually winning the fight. With the wii u, I can finally watch some damn TV and play some games (but not this one)
I never played this series but after reading and using the support of the Wii-U, I might buy this game.
THE WIIU GAMEPAD WOULD BE GREAT FOR POKEMON PLEASE! I wanna see regular pokemon, not pokemon rumble, or pokepark, JUST REGULAR POKEMON!
I have a ds lite, but it broke :( and im saving up for wii u so i cant get a ds lite or 3ds. So PLEASE POKEMON!
