Wii U Will Support Multiple Controllers
In the on-going “Wii U controller saga” (How many Wii U controllers are compatible with a single Wii U console), Matt Ryan from Nintendo explained the Wii U console would indeed support multiple controllers. “Let me correct something that is a misconception,We said that the Wii U system will come with one Wii U controller, but we haven’t said that you can only use one Wii U controller. The fact is that if the developer makes a game or an experience that uses more than one, then anything is possible”, said Ryan.
Ryan’s comments conflict with Nintendo’s Amber Mcollom earlier comments, in a recent interview Mcollom had the following to say on the Wii U controller debate, “We don’t have anything to announce at this time on how many controllers will effectively work with the system but right now we’re showing it with one new controller”.
The fact Nintendo can’t communicate such a basic aspect of the Wii U’s functionality concerns me, a lot of work remains to be done to win over core gamers.
