because sticking buttons on an iPad is a genius idea that no one could have though of without Nintendo.

Regardless of what the Nintendo fanboys would like to think, Nintendo wasn't being creative with Wii U.

Whoooosh! The whole point of the Wii U flew way over your head. Nintendo isn't making a standalone tablet. They are making a handheld / game controller hybrid that integrates seamlessly with the home console.

lol. No. Nintendo saw how awesome popular the iPad is, and decided to stick buttons on it.

Nintendo marketing then went about it's business, and we end up with quotes like the one above.

But didn't Nintendo say they were working on the tablet-controller design before the tablet market boomed? While I can't bring up a source, I'm sure they talked about the very early development of the Wii U and specifically mentioned that.

Even if that is true (I don't remember seeing that anywhere), I find it rather convenient that the exact design Nintendo ended up with looks like a small iPad, with buttons.

Like how the Move controller looks conveniently like a Wii Remote? Hmm ;)

I don't think I ever claimed that with the Move, Sony didn't take one look at how popular the WiiMote was, and decided to do their own version?

The underlying technology is different, just as the Wii U's technology is different to the iPad. I'm not saying Nintendo copied the iPad wholesale, but I'm rather surprised the Nintendo fanboys continue to insist Sony is an unoriginal company that copies the ideas of the other companies, when Nintendo just did the same thing, blatantly so.

It does the exact same thing independent of the technology used, it's a ripoff and there's nothing else to it. The Wii U on the other hand has nothing to do with an iPad, and I don't see how any of the iPad uses fit into the controller. They thought about giving developers a chance of showing another window aside from the one in front of the player. I think the concept is pretty cool and innovative, and that just by trying to copy the iPad they wouldn't have thought about all the new things this controller can bring to games.

Even if you insist that Nintendo copied Apple, at least understand that they are giving it very different uses than the ones on the iPad, something that can't be said about the Move. At least Kinect was a similar approach done in a very different way.

none of these companies exist in a vacuum. of course there are going to be similarities in design, functions etc. they would be foolish to not jump on each other's ideas. none of them exist for gaming, but because of gaming. they are in business to make money. they are not our family or best friends. they are corporations who provide products that we (hopefully) will want to purchase. none of them are white knights and none of them are demons. they are businesses, nothing more nor less.

Makes for a great rave stick, that or searching for late night blood splatter. But at least it's got a wireless nunchuck, something that I've always wanted for the Wii 'from' Nintendo.

Be consistent with the points you make. Or how about this? Don't bring it up at all.

The fact that you rag on people for saying the same ignorant things you say really doesn't look good at all.

Even if you're right, he wont back down and admit it. Instead he'll just write more walls of never ending text defending his opinion. He's always right, or at least he seems to think so.
