Nintendo showed off its controller for its next system, the Wii U, at E3. The controller with its own user interface. The player can play the game directly on the controller which has a 6.2 inch touch screen. This allows the player to interact with the game very much like people are interacting more and more often with the world around them, through a mobile device.
Nintendo looked at how people are increasingly interacting with the world through tablets and smart phones and applied it directly to its next system. What will this bring to gaming? What does interacting with the real world through mobile devices bring? With mobile devices people are interacting with the world less directly and are missing out on reality. Whereas this controller will have you looking at the big screen less often. I like mobile devices. They do let you get more out of reality, I think, as long as you don’t let them take over you or cause you to walk into fountains. I for one don’t want this issue with the new Wii U controller, having Mario falling down holes or Link running into Baddies all the time.
What do you think about the Wii u controller? Yea or Nay?

In 1984, Apple had a commercial played at the Super bowl that made commercial history.
Years later, at the Super bowl, this Motorola Xoom commercial makes obvious reference to the 1984 commercial. While its awesome I can’t say I’m going to go out and get a Xoom. I kinda still want an ipad, even if that will leave me in the sea of sameness that is 1984. And too bad Motorola isn’t the only company making digs at Apple commercials right now. Tmobile got there first with the I’m a mac and pc campaign they’ve been on.
How do you like this Motorola commercial? Thing Apple turned into the bad guys from 1984 with its dominance over the mp3 and tablet markets? In 1984 Apple was the challenger that brought change to the market. Today who doesn’t refer to an mp3 as an ipod? Or refers to a tablet as an ipad? Is it truly 1984 and can Motorola do what Apple did in 1984?
