Ainze commented on Planning On Downloading Xenoblade Chronicles 3...:

@Grumblevolcano - My brother's transfer went perfectly over the air. And mine went fine without me breaking my panel. And the best part? My brother didn't have to spend £10 more. He has 4GB and is happy. I have 32GB and am happy. As DJKeens just said: "I don't expect users who don't [download] to pay for the additional space." - That would just be a jerk move.

Ainze commented on Planning On Downloading Xenoblade Chronicles 3...:

Nintendo are doing us a favour by cutting costs. I recently talked my brother through a system transfer and the complete over-wifi option turned out to be the easiest for him due to only owning 3 virtual console games. We're talking about <20MB. For him, his original 2GB card was massively overkill. It's not like he doesn't own a ton of games - it's just that he always prefers to get the cartridge due to usually being cheaper. The same is also true of my other brother, who is still on his original 3DS hardware. Now why should they have to pay the price just to keep download-hogs happy? Seems like Nintendo are giving us the best of both worlds (especially as you can still get Xenoblade on cartridge too). Now pay your £10, get a 32GB card, and pipe down.

Ainze commented on Wii U GamePad Offers Nine-Axis Controls:

The Gamepad doesn't register only it's spacial position in 9 dimensions, it registers ALL of its properties. Just like a Aeroplane with altitude, longitude, latitude, roll, pitch, yaw, and a 3D vector velocity (or if you're really nerdy, you could consider the myriad of quantum numbers needed to describe a particle). There is lots of information needed to fully describe an object's position and movements in space, and all the different axes are different and independent. If it wasn't the case, you wouldn't be able to tell the difference between Wii Remote and Remote Plus.

So yay for 9 (real) axes. And frankly, here's for even more in the future, making gaming even more realistic.

@b_willers
Still 9 axis. The magnetic sensors don't tell you where on Earth the Gamepad is, but they do tell the Gamepad what direction it is facing relative to magnetic North. If you've ever used a 3D compass app on a smartphone, you'll see a complete spherical motion tracking (i.e. tracking all 3 axes).

@Jackrov
Exactly my thoughts. No more pointing at the sensor bar to recalibrate. How many boss fights went screwy because of that?
