So while Nintendo is making a big deal about the Wii U supporting two Wii U GamePads, don't get excited just yet.
Via Twitter, Nintendo president Satoru Iwata stated, "When you use two, the framerate halfs to 30 frames per second."
So that means all those 60fps Wii U games Nintendo has been banging on about slow to 30fps if you fire up a second Wii U GamePad.
Over time, I'd imagine this is something Nintendo will rectify. Which is probably why Iwata added, "At launch, we'll start by offering games that use only one [Wii U GamePad] and then expand from there."
