Fantastic, new page, no reason for any more drama... oh. Come on now, if just one of you 2 drop it, it's over. It'd just be one man shouting at a wall. Please. Again, I know I'm not the boss of anyone, I'm just politely requesting that you please stop it, just to make the thread a more enjoyable read for everyone else. |
I was thinking yesterday as I was playing my Wii U that I really wouldn't like to play most the the Wii U games I own without the Gamepad. Sure, almost every use of it is totally unoriginal and uninspired, but having the map or inventory right there is so handy I can't imagine not having it. In Mass Effect 3, it makes it easier to keep track of your teammates and shift them about. In Wind Waker and Arkham City, the map is a fantastic tool that presents the stop/start I'd get having to hit a map button. I got Arkham City in that recent humble bundle, but just wouldn't play it without that handy map. It became second nature so quickly that anything else just feels a bit off.
I really hope that Sony make the most of the Vita in the same way. If anything, it should end up better as you could have the Vita do it's own processing, so it has the potential to be amazing. Sure, there's no guarantee people will own both Vita and PS4 like a Wii U owner has to have a Gamepad, but with a million PS4 already out there, I reckon the Vita could sell better if there are good reasons to own both. Remote play, a function I already love on Wii U, seems to be really well supported, plus as far as I know, you can use it online. That alone gives it the edge there.
Same to an extent with SmartGlass. I really do feel that having a second screen is something they should all be capitalising on. Maybe they will, or maybe they won't. I just hope they do
