Mr Miyamoto told “Our basic premise is that you can use one with a system.
“If we got to an idea of having multiple (controllers) it might be just more convenient for people to use their Nintendo 3DS and have a way to connect that.
“That being said, we are doing research about if someone brings their controller to their friends house and they want to play together on Wii U to whether or not something like that would be possible.”
He said that competitors will find it difficult to replicate the Wii U.
“It might be more convenient for people if companies did do that because this system is going to make it easier for people to interact with game systems.
“Because of the way we’ve designed the game system, where the controller is really just that – it does have a screen but it doesn’t have a processor inside it.”
