Could they apply it in future revisions?

First spotted by Kotaku, a Nintendo Wii U patent reveals they planned a 3D high-def tablet for their upcoming console.

According to a Wii U patent recently spotted by Kotaku, Nintendo considered a 3D Screen, like the 3DS one.

The patent was filled during September last year, just after they first revealed the Wii U at E3 2011. Also, seems they considered a full HD display.



The filings also indicate that Nintendo considered making the tablet controller capable of running in high-definition at 1080p. As was revealed at the 2011 Electronic Entertainment Expo, the Wii U itself sports visual output at that level.

Nintendo's patent filing is not a concrete indication of what the company plans to do, only that it has the right to do so, should it choose to.


Yes, that doesn't mean they have plans for an version of the tablet controller, but they could do it in the future.

Could this revised version of the controller be shown at this year E3? Most likely the idea was scrapped, but anything can happen, as the patent is still there.

it wont be glasses free 3d EVER and its not likely to be hd either.

3d + touchscreen = utter failure, the screen degrades and it makes the 3d really bad (thats why the 3s has no 3d on the bottom screen).

there is no point whatsoever in having hd on a screen that size, its the same reason that the vita doesnt have an hd screen, pointless cost for almost zero benefit (although sony do keep claiming that the vita screen is hd which of course is factually inaccurate).

(although sony do keep claiming that the vita screen is hd which of course is factually inaccurate).

again you make things up in your head, if you care again to find where sony have actually said the vita screen is HD.

i assume your small mind is getting confused with devs releasing 360/ps3 hd remakes on the vita, which thanks to its oled smaller screen, the same visual/texture quality can be achieved thus making it look hd.

but please do, find sony reps saying the vita is a hd screen, im still waiting on your other BS comment which you assumed and failed epically when sony/ms said the consoles will support hd resolutions, your fanboy head heard them saying everything will be in full hd.

cant find an exact printed quote but they have mentioned the vitas amazing high defenition screen before, oh and before you say i make stuff up you should try reading sonys decimation of reality that they put out the other week under the guise of paid advertising as a supposed forum news post.... i'll quote it here in its entirety since gary never bothered posting it as news, but i'm sure that even you will agree that such rewriting of historical fact would have made joseph goebbels proud.



A Trip Down Internal Memory Lane: How Playstation Changed the Game

Gran Turismo, Tony Hawk, Medal of Honor—remember how excited you were the first time you played these now prolific games, fueled only by Hot Pockets and Mountain Dew? Back in 1994, when the original Playstation hit the market, kids everywhere began spending countless hours with their buddies, trading off controllers after getting sniped while toggling through weapons. Inevitably, the kid who owned the system would always play the longest because they knew what they were doing, until eventually a brawl would break out and everyone would get sent home—ah, the memories (single tear).

But those melees marked the start of the Golden Age of gaming and the bruises were their own Medals of Honor. 32-bit graphics and a three-dimensional Lara Croft totally rocked the old 16-bit world. And it wasn't just her, uh, personality, that had a third dimension. Entire 3D landscapes allowed for complete immersion in worlds that did more than scroll sideways. You navigated these new worlds with a completely redesigned controller packed with more buttons, sticks, and pads than you knew what to do with. And those buggy old cartridges were replaced by CDs that had greater storage capacity and cost less to produce, making Playstation the system of choice for cost-conscious third-party developers to debut their new blockbuster games.

You know what happened next: the PS2 ushered in the new millennium of gaming. In 2000, the upgraded console came chock full of 64-bit eye-candy, an internal hard-drive, the fastest processor yet, and Internet connectivity. This was the era of Grand Theft Auto and the Playstation Network. Five years later, the handheld PSP came along and took button mashing mobile. Suddenly, you were landing 30,000-point tricks while flying at 30,000 feet and driving your dream car 200mph while on the train to work.

The PS3 hit the shelves just in time for the holidays back in 2006, and with it came epic games like Uncharted, Call of Duty: Modern Warfare, Madden, Red Dead Redemption, and Gran Turismo 5—all of which remain ridiculously addictive.

So, while graphics and games have come a long way, some things never change. Your friends still come over and the raid the fridge, you still stay up late basking in the blue glow of various screens, and you're still playing fighting games and shooters—only now you're using headsets and Wi-Fi to play with your buddies.

And soon, Playstation will take your mobile gaming experience to a new level once again with the . It comes equipped with a camera, Wi-Fi, 3G access, and backwards compatibility so you can get your old game nostalgia fix whenever and wherever you want.

Right down there is an open comment thread for you to share your favorite gaming stories and memories. What did you think the first time you played a game in a 3D world? Ever stay up all night playing Resident Evil because you were too scared to fall asleep? How many nights did you waste trying to figure out what a "Bandicoot" is? Hearken back to those halcyon days and post your best story in the comments.

just think of it as one of those spot the difference puzzles except this time its reality vs sony's version.

lol you wont find a quote, because its in your head, sony have not stated that the vita screen is actually a HD screen, theres a difference in it actually been a HD screen than it looking HD quality you frickin tool.

you wont get this, same as when you failed when ms/sony said hd support, dumbass here jumps to conclusion everything is full hd, just like the vita screen, you assume yet have nothing to prove your comment.

i didnt bother reading your qoute, wtf it had to do with your miss interpretation of the vita screen beats me.

all i can say after reading, is that sony consoles actually move forward, unlike nintendo that is allways behind, the GC lacked online game play, MS did a better job (at a cost) sony with the ps3 imporved that (at no cost) yet nintendo still soley focus on fad controllers to make its system/games some what aparently better, when in fact its masking the fact its old out dated (still behind) games, then thanks to the fad controllers, devs will simply release teh same crap kind of games, which has 2 consoles in a row been proven, which leaves MS and Sony open to devs releasing games that sell millions within a few days.

that is the system i back, when its games sell loads, because it means the game is great, i dont care when nintendo brag how many units they sell boasting because theyve made it cheap and each unit sold is profit to them, but you never see nintendo consoles have big selling titles, nintendo in fact doesnt even get put in the same legue as MS/sony, and people admit the fact its a poor system so heck lets try give it a genorous score (which you dont see many of)
