Games So, the E3 is well under way, and all the major players have had their press conferences. To summarise. Microsoft: Kinect. Really. Kinect. Please Kinect. We'll do anything. For the love of god, Kinect. Sony: wait, what is this? What am I doing here? Oh, here's a 24" 3D TV for $500 and yet another PSP. Nintendo: we slapped every possible shiny object onto a tablet and made the Wii capable of rendering halfway decent graphics. Here's another load of Mariozelda Kart, and a bunch of EA games that Xbox/PS3 players already own. Yes, this year's E3 has been a massive letdown - save for a few exceptions. Update: Epic fail for Nintendo. The company has admitted that it has used footage from the Xbox 360 and PS3 to spice up the press reel for the Wii U.

The DS works because the two screens are close enough to each other, and fixed. When you have a movable screen that is some distance from the other screen, you have a focus shift that is not as easy to constantly adjust to. This was the problem with Dreamcast and GBA adapter on GBC before.

So with Wii you hold your hand in front of you towards the screen. If you put a screen on top of the Wii controller and you've pretty much replicated what the DS is doing. I know I don't play all my Wii games exactly like that because I don't have to, but the potential was always there. I have a feeling my arm will be slightly more tired after playing WiiU.
