Will mobile phone gaming kill off systems like the 3DS?
I doubt it, there will always be dedicated portables.

Yes, the 3DS will be the last portable system from Nintendo.

There is actually only one correct answer: PS3. The auto-next episode for 3 episodes is so damn convenient that I haven't used it on my Wii since. Haven't even bothered trying the U version because I'm told there's no auto-option.

I'll have to look into that. I've never personally used Netflix for episodes, only movies. But my daughter does and I don't think it has that feature. Hulu Plus does have that feature on Wii U but I never use it. I usually don't have enough time to sit there and watch a bunch of episodes. I'll watch a show then turn it off and get into some gaming until I fall asleep. Thank god for the automatic system shut off after one hour!

Wait... you watch movies (1.5 hrs+) but don't have time for concurrent tv shows (22min an episode)? Streex, your logic alludes me. Razz

Sorry, that was trolling hard, hahaha. Read a bunch of GameFaqs.com forum posts at work today for the lulz, musta rubbed off. ROFL!

Aaaaanyways... I game on my gamepad and netflix on my triple, so even if I'm gaming some Law & Order in the background doesn't hurt. Wink If I'm gamin' on the triple I netflix on the 3DSXL oh snap I'm like a boyscout so damn prepared.

I can't multi-media task like that. I've heard others doing that also but my brain can't focus on a game and a show at the same time.

But to explain my watching habits...I only watch TV shows by myself after everyone has gone to bed. My wife and I have completely different shows that we watch so when I have my "me" time at night I don't like to spend it watching a bunch of shows when I could be gaming. So I'll watch 1 show and then get to the games.

Movies on the other hand I only watch with my wife, one night a week (movie night). So we do that together. Then after the movie she goes to bed and I stay up to watch, you guessed it, a TV show and then get into gaming.

Kinda sad when I think about it. When we first met we watched everything together. Then she migrated to watching only dramas and I migrated to watching only comedies.

I mostly watch it on 3DS, which is terrible. Why do I do it? Long story. Why is it so terrible? I could write a catalog of bugs that piece of crap is loaded with.

As for the Wii U version, it's actually the best one I've seen yet. Having that second screen gives you a lot of control options. Plus you can see the progress bar and episode description without having to press any buttons or take up space on the main screen. Of course, you can also watch shows on the gamepad as well if someone else needs the TV. A nice option. You can also start the next episode of something from the main show menu just by touching the show's icon rather than going into its menu first. (You can also hit a button on the gamepad to go into its menu.) As for auto-next, I've mostly found that to be an annoying feature on Hulu, and it really won't break my finger to just touch the pad once when I want the next episode to start. My only complaint is that you can't use the Wii remote at all. It is much smaller than the gamepad and in some situations I would rather just have that nice, tiny, remote-shaped device.

How could it possibly be annoying? You watch one episode of a given show and then switch? I'm not saying its tough to have to... turn the pad/mote back on from sleep mode, wait for it to awaken itself, then have to tap a button for another episode I know I wanted to watch concurrently... or just have the auto-next on pa3. Endgame, sorry. Razz lol

It's annoying when I don't want another episode to start. After one ends, my wife and I sometimes just lounge for a few minutes talking or something. We rarely watch more than one episode of anything at a time, and when we do, she always has to get up to go to the bathroom or something, and then I play 3DS or get a snack or something, so it's never saving me any effort. Also, it takes a Wiimote maybe 1.5 seconds to wake up. The Wii U gamepad doesn't need to wake up at all- it always works instantly.
