Wii U Touch Screen: Discussion

The gaming world has had touch screens for quite a while, but there are several different styles of touch screen. First off, you have the iOS style of touch screen, in which the screen recognizes that the user is making skin contact with the screen. The upside of this style is that the user is able to use this any time without having to get a pen or stylus to control the system. However, the downside is that if the user has a film of dirt or even gloves over their finger, there is no way for them to interact with the screen. The alternative, which appears to be on the Wii U, is the touch screen that requires a tough object to push the screen to a certain point, where it will recognize the screen has been pressed. This allows the screen to be more accurately selected, as definite points are used in the selection. However, this also means that a definite point must be acquired in order to use this screen, or the point is lost. Ultimately, we have two wonderful products that share many similarities, but also differ in major ways. Both have their strengths and weaknesses, and different people prefer either one or the other. Which one do you prefer? -Ryan Baxter
