"Zero benefits" is a huge exaggeration.

What's one of the features most cited that people like about the WiiU? "I can sit on the couch and play with the controller while my wife/girlfriend watches TV."


If that's the absolute best counter to zero-benefit, that you can compare it to a WiiU whilst sitting on the couch while someone else watches TV, then you have unintentionally and gleefully proven my point, thank you!


It may not be a benefit to you, but again, it's something you routinely hear WiiU users discuss. Even on this board.

I'm not saying this is a super useful device. Or that I even believe it will make it to manufacturing (I'd be surprised.) But to say it has "zero benefits" is a bit of an exaggeration, no?
