'I do have a problem with it (the new Nintendo Wii U and Microsoft SmartGlass)... (the)divided attention that you're demanding of a player is going to be really challenging to balance well.'

In the interview with IGN, Peter Malyneux (of 'Fable' fame) went on to stress that using a tablet for supplementary information like football scores or movie tidbits was ok, but already something done with the internet. 'But that’s not what SmartGlass or the Wii U are about. It’s about giving you a second screen into the same experience, and that’s where I’m a little bit challenged.'

He went on to add that his experiences with Wii U games like 'NintendoLand,' 'Rayman Legends' and 'Zombi U' did not feature 'a lot of innovations.' Nothing in the interview seemed to approach the long released DS, multimonitor set-ups, or other instances where two displays can successfully engage the viewer.
