A recent article with Manufacturing Digital and CVG (Computer and Videogames) has spread some light on rumored Wii U delays. Sources close to Nintendo have revealed that the manufacturing process for the Wii U Gamepad is “complex”. Here’s what they had to say:
“The ‘Gamepad’, built around a 6.2” touchscreen interface, and coupled with a front-facing camera, a range of motion-sensors, NFC (Near-Field Communication) capability and an integrated power supply, has been suggested as the main reason for the delays.
The manufacturing process for the Gamepad has been described as “complex”, though Nintendo has stated that issues, such as those being experienced currently, are common in the run-up to the launch of a major product.”
