Revision to Wii U GamePad

Geoffrey Langston

== Background and Identification ==
-The Nintendo Wii U GamePad Model# WUP-010(USA) is the standard controller used by the Nintendo Wii U video game console. It was released on November 18th, 2012. This GamePad has traditional input methods (such as buttons, dual analog sticks, and a D-pad) as well as touchscreen controls and motion controls. The touchscreen can be used to supplement a game by providing alternate, second screen functionality or an asymmetric view of a scenario in a game. The screen can also be used to play a game strictly on the GamePad screen, without the use of a television display. Conversely, non-gaming functions can be assigned to it as well, such as using it as a television remote. The Wii U GamePad can be used in conjunction with other controllers compatible with the console, such as the Wii Remote Plus, Wii Balance Board, and the more conventional Wii U Pro Controller
