    I wonder what are they going to do with the gcn games since the pad has no analog triggers. Will they recode them and take that functionality away?

      If you read my post you will see what its missing…

  2. I wonder if the rumored XBLA/PS3/PC port of SA2’ll hit it. It would suck if they gave us an emulated SA2B instead of the full port. Or maybe we won’t get it at all, but it’ll be interesting to see if Wii U eShop is going to be competitive with XBLA right off the bat.
