I love Gamboy&GBA's design its versatile and it appeals to everyone,however the dual screen isn't! it was kinda of cool back in the 2007's something when touch screen was a novelty but now 2014 it just feels like a gimmick overstaying its due.
After owning a psp&tablet for more than 5 years i think its safe to conclude that dual screen is simply unnecessary for portable gaming! what exactly makes it so damn important that we need the whole console designed around it? this is the real reason why people say that nintendo is just showing the middle finger to hardcore gamers! we need dual analog sticks NOT dual screens!
What are the exclusive perks of the dual screen exactly? If i want to see the map screen,i would pause my game and go the map,i don't want to stare at the map all the time! the only games that seem to fully utilize dual screens are the games that are specifically designed around that and even very hard to find most of the ds games don't fully utilize it so WTF? its nothing more than a waste of LCD backlight... and the most baffling thing is that they're pushing this nonsense into WIIU controller as if its cutting edge tech tch.... c'mon its 2014 dammit!
don't get me wrong i know nintendo used to be gimmicky since the NES days but they were only for accessories but now their every new game console seems to have a gimmick fetish..
