    Talking to Industry Gamers, Epic Games president, Mike Capps explains that, from the perspective of a middleware provider and developer, the WiiU is falling into an awkward middle-ground while rapidly advancing cell phone technology is providing the real challenge.

    For cellphones to be the next big thing.
    They need to standardize the screens.

    You only really have 3 ways of doing it:

    1. Touch screen.
    2. Keyboard.
    3. Built in sensor.

    "Joypad" is just an older name for what's nowadays called a "D-pad"...

    np: The Fall - This Perfect Day (The Marshall Suite (Disc 3))

    no, D-pad is part of the game pad. The D stands for "Direction" and it's the + like button.
