Wii U Gamepad Has Optimal Range of 24 Feet (8 Meters)
Nintendo product marketing manager Bill Trinen confirmed a question many Wii U customers were wondering in an interview with 1UP
When asked about whether there was a limit to how far the Gamepad would work here is what he had to say.
“We tend to be more conservative, because we’re looking at it from a performance perspective. What, really, is the range where you’re going to get the best performance out of that? And you’re going to get the best performance within a range of about eight meters. That´s about 24 feet. That’s for best performance.”
24 feet is plenty of space for a lot of living rooms and at least he brings up a good reason for setting a limit on how far to have the range.
looks like we’re gonna need a bigger boat.
or some more FBI guys?
That’s far enough; don’t need to be playing from 100 yards away or anything.
It’s odd how 8 meters is about 24 feet. just looks weird XD
If anyone needs me, I’m going to be measuring the space between my TV and my bathroom. If it’s more than 24 feet, no buy.
