The famous designer / developer Peter Molyneux game, has questioned the benefits the Wii GamePad U can bring to the world of consoles on the gameplay, even if Nintendo says it is a revolution in the way of interacting with games.
Molyneux has said openly he thinks that users may tire of having to divide their attention between the television screen and the GamePad.
Yusuf Mehdi, Microsoft's chief marketing officer also commented:
Is not this a strange statement coming from representatives of the company recently introduced the Xbox Smart Glass technology that resembles the GamePad?
Mehdi says it is not because the smart glass that was designed with outside support means, and not essential to the gameplay.
I think it is too early to give a final opinion regarding the benefits or shortcomings of the tablet, the games shown at E3 were limited and those who tested only for a few minutes had access to the gadget. Besides the fact that we have been playing for decades in a way does not mean that users can not get used to different ways of interacting with games, of course, if Nintendo really did their homework and designed its GamePad intelligently about the way they can be used.
And finally, the chances are that if someone simply does not fit to use the new control, have the option to disable it.
The U Wii will be here later this year and that is when we can see if Nintendo really did a novel way to interact with games, or if Molyneux (who is known for giving hasty opinions) was right.
