Unless the game you're playing requires two screens, of course. Other than that as long as you have access to an electrical outlet you can play Wii U games on just the gamepad.

I wanted to read the source, but it appears to be a truncated URL.

Using a mobile?

Nope. Just copying and pasting that URL takes me directly to the IGN homepage. I assumed it was the "..." in the middle to blame.

Does your PC think it's a mobile?

Not sure, but my Mac thinks your URL is so very bogus.

>>Here's something that may surprise some folks. There is no ethernet port on the Wii U. Wi-Fi only unless you buy a dongle.<<

Give him credit. It's better than the time he claimed his source was statistics, many statistics.

Ah, okay. Actually, now that I think about it, wasn't the Wii the same way? Since the downloads are so small, I never had any problem with just using the wi-fi though. My PS3 and 360 are hardwired, and still slower than crap but it does help a bit.

I don't think downloads will remain small, though.
Funny thing is that N Fanboys were praising nintendo for including an HDMI cable, while at the same time they're pulling a Microsoft by not including both WiFi and wired connections out of the box.

Does it offend you that the Wii U lacks an ethernet port? Are you canceling your preorder?

In reply to an earlier post on Nov 8, 2012, 4:21:58 PM PST
Meh, I use wireless on both my consoles and they are just fine. The 360 is faster but that is probably because the built in wi-fi is N instead of G. As long as this is an N adapter I'll be peachy. Also, I bet they'll sell an ethernet adapter too.

Flores is just finding things to pick at, it's payback for all the meanie-heads around here that pick on him all the time.

I don't have a preorder. Kids are still on probation.

In reply to an earlier post on Nov 8, 2012, 4:24:42 PM PST
Yes, my Wii doesn't have an Ethernet port either. Honestly I don't see this as a big deal as I've practically always used the wifi on all my systems and never had any problems. The PS3 downloads take a while but that's not because it has a slow connection.

And yes. I am happy Ninty is including an HDMI cable with their new console. I've never owned one before and look forward to losing my HDMI virginity to the first console of a new generation.
