Wii U Gamepad

Reports are coming out that the Wii U Gamepad, the large tablet-like controller for the Wii U, will feature only a 3-5 hour batter life. What the hell? For most non-casual gamers that is nothing.

It’s also not like it will be easy to charge while playing due to the nature of the controllers use. This is extremely disappointing, especially when you take into account that Nintendo announced this morning on Twitter that having two gamepads hooked up would knock the system’s frame rate in half.

Honestly I’m still excited for the system, but this is just disappointing news for the future of the system.

By the way, all this information can be found on Nintendo’s own site.
