Say it ain’t so!
Nintendo has just confirmed our deepest worry regarding the WiiU’s Gamepad battery life–it’s not good. The pad is set to last for only 3-5 hours maximum! It may even drain faster depending on certain conditions such as brightness level and will take 2.5 hours to fully charge. No news has been released regarding the “Pro” controller battery life, but I would imagine it being similar to Xbox or PS3.
On the positive note, this will give gamers a reason to go outside…or play something else.
