i got to say being able to use the gamepad at all is a nice first step, and i am personally grateful for nintendo actually listening for those of us that asked.
but after playing a couple of games on it, holding the system and and controller is a bit of a pain in the ass
i know most games are just a "bad idea" for use on the gamepad (a wiimote, nunchuck, and balancing the wiipad ><, even just a classic controller and balancing the wiipad is difficult), and im not expecting some crazy magical workaround to make all my gamepad wishes come true :P
but alot of games would work perfectly with just the inputs on the pad, so obviously its the next logically step
when do you think it'll happen?
i hope its be4 the end of the year, but im not holding my breath. realistically i would say 8-12 months, and i base that on absolutely nothing :)
