Console specs still in flux, but sources say Nintendo now has ambitions for touch-screen multiplayer
A trusted game development executive has said there are numerous indications within the Wii U codebase that the console is, at the very least, being prepared to operate with two touch-screen pads.
Seems that Nintendo has one again listened to its potential customers by adding support for 2 controllers, but I am not sure that people wanting this extra controller will still want it if they have to pay out an extra $150 or more for another 'tablet'.
