Time Names Wii U GamePad 2nd on Its Top 10 Tech List

Nintendo’s first HD gaming console launched a few weeks ago and received mixed reactions from most media outlets. Some praised it, some hated it, and some didn’t even know what it was. Time magazine, however, did know what it was loved it. In fact they loved it so much, they gave it the number two spot its Top 10 Tech List, right behind the iPhone 5.

“The Wii U’s key innovation is its GamePad, a game controller with a built-in 6.2” touchscreen. It interacts with your TV in different ways in different games, and has the potential to be a big deal if game developers make good use of it,” Time proclaims. The publication also fell in love with the console’s TVii feature, saying, “Also potentially huge: TVii, which combines streaming video from sources such as Netflix with your cable lineup and TiVo recordings. It’s the first time that the famously game-centric Nintendo has poured its heart and soul into a non-gaming feature.” Interestingly enough, the feature isn’t even publicly available yet, as of time of writing.
