Well, in general I envision games just having you stare at a map or inventory screen a la many third-party DS titles.
I could see a bunch of multiplayer games having a blast with this, maybe give local multiplayer a big jump-start again. Like the TV screen has a camera for the outside party watching, and the individual screens having something the mostly concerns the individual players holding it.
Hopefully the touch screen will be able to recognize two or more input points, rather than just one like the DS.
Yes, that's one of my worst fears when it comes to that controller, though a minimap with some level of interactivity never hurts if the actual game is solid enough
I think this was one of the biggest sellers for it, especially for game genres like racing and fps where a single glance at another player's screen can tell you pretty much everything about his position on the field and his current status, and that's a really dick way of cheating for everyone involved
However, haven't they said the wiiu only uses one of those mini screens at a time or am I still stuck in 2011?
I hope it's gonna work like this generation's tablets, that'd be kinda consistent
