Why is the Wii U stylus traditional? Why isn't it like the Nintendo 3DS stylus, instead of being like everything else?

This signature is an awful waste of time

It's not a well kept secret that the 3DS stylus is not the most popular one out there. It's inredibly annoying to have to extend every time you want to use it.

Um...what else would it be? Did you want the stylus to do something special or something...?

I'd rather a resistive screen that didn't need a stylus at all. :P

I expect a sensational new stylus to be revealed at E3. Heard it here first.

I am not ignoring you. I just do not post much.

I think there will be a bigger one at least. I hope there's some drawing apps built in.

HA! the revolution is starting NOW!.

In other news, I am so used to the incredibly accurate touch of my ipad and iphone - especially compared to the usual touchscreen - I just hope nintendo can pull an equal ease of use off... I mean, we don't have extra hands lying around to replace our fingers with a clumsy stylus, do we?

The nice thing about all of Nintendo's touchscreens is that you can use a stylus, or your finger if you want. With, say, iPhones, you can ONLY use your finger. My personal theory is that they already know they are gonna have at least more Wii, and just like the 3DS, the 3rd Wii will use the 3DS's stylus. I can't even barely use a DS stylus anymore because the 3DS stylus is longer.

@James I know that, but I want to know why they didn't make the screen capacitive...

Expense, my friend. A 6.2" capacitive touch screen isn't cheap!

So they can get more accurate gameplay input. Stylus > finger

Am I the only person who likes having the 3DS stylus unextended?

Nintedno likes to cheap out and convince people that resistjve only screens are good. Looks atxyhe galaxy note and galaxy not 10.1 you can have a copactive screen that has a digitizer in it. But nintendo probably wont do it and the product will suffer for it.

The 3DS stylus sucks, that's why.

Looking forward to: Mario Kart 8
