Wii U GamePad is crying out for apps!

The Wii U GamePad at first glance seems a clunky monstrosity. It’s not until you give the hybrid gaming controller/tablet a go that you truly appreciate what it can do, and how comfortable it really is.

There’s just one sad fact letting it down, there are no ass kicking apps to unleash it’s potential, Nintendo’s web browser and Miiverse are good/great in their own fashions, but what is missing are the apps of today that encompass the lives of many people.

Facebook, Twitter, Last Fm, and an e-book reader, like Kindle to name a few, why have these not been developed in some shape or form? It just seems such a waste to miss an opportunity of this magnitude.

Does Nintendo want an (only) games console experience, (semi online) or do they want a more social, more connected place, that’s more appealing to people/potential customers?

Operation 3rd Party.

O3P

So a new Facebook page has been set-up. Like the title states, it’s to drum up support (create awareness) for 3rd party titles to be developed (ported seems such a lackluster word) for the Wii U.

You can help by liking and sharing.

Also tweet the hashtag  pretty please.
