The Wii U GamePad is not multi-touch. Not a problem, Fils-Aime
said, holding a GamePad in his hands. “When we went through the
building of this and, given some of the functionality, we thought
that single-touch was a more appropriate option, especially when
you’ve got other button configurations.”
I love Nintendo, but I’m dubious about this. I could see a non-multitouch controller a few years ago, but today? This product is debuting in a world where everyone is familiar with iPhones and iPads.
