Uh huh. Likely story.
Also, if he can't reword it because he doesn't understand it, then he really should get someone that can. It's not that hard. There's plenty of people that can do that.

I recently went to my friends house to check out his wii. I was generally impressed. It was larger than I expected though.

I'm still a bit sceptic, at this point, after the long drough of news, I feel like I can survive another 3 months without anything new being revealed. Some small hints and intersting rumor will be enough to keep the hype up. And this thread, obviously. :)

I'm ready for this:

Yeah.. I've heard NeoGAF described in none-too-flattering terms, but this place looks and reads like the Hilton next to that roach motel of a forum.

It's pretty said when a goal of the old thread was to reach a post count and get it closed. The speculation that should have been about the Wii U had turned into speculation about how/when the thread will close.

On topic:
  • I speculate that Nintendo could add a "sensor bar" or IR camera to the back of the Wii U controller or have some other method to connect its orientation to the Wii U for tracking. This may already be possible with the gyro, magnetic field detector, etc. If a "sensor bar" and camera on the back of the controller players could use two controllers and interact with each other without a TV.
  • They could also add an IR or standard camera to the TV sensor bar to interact with the Wii U controller or IR glasses. Such a camera may even be able to see if you people in the room are looking at the screen. If you haven't already seen it please checkout Johnny Lee's video: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Jd3-eiid-Uw

What, if anything, was reveal from the patent(s)? Are other patent possible forthcoming?

Now they just need to put him in charge of the story for the next Metroid game (and I say that as someone who has the utmost respect for Yoshio Sakamoto).

Oh, and Cow Mendge, you should definitely check Star Fox Command out. It's not a traditional Star Fox game, but it's worth playing if you enjoy the characters and the ongoing storyline of the Star Fox series.

and the triggers to be made into analog triggers (though there was a rumour I think from BGassassin saying that it may have been updated), and yes, then the controller will be set.

The analog sticks need digital click, too, to be compatible with games/franchises that use L3 and R3.
