Forums - Nintendo Discussion - Wii U GamePad Range Test

This video is to give you an idea on what's the range of the Wii U, this will obviously change depending on the thickness of your walls

good video.

 

 

Mine does not go that far for some reason.

01000110 01101111 01110010 00100000 01001001 01111001 01101111 01101100 01100001 01101000 00100001 00100000 01000110 01101111 01110010 00100000 01000101 01110100 01100101 01110010 01101110 01101001 01110100 01111001 00100001 00100000

Let me actually measure the distance mine goes.

*a moment later*

Approximately 22-25 feet with a wall between it and the Wii U. (This is in my bedroom, WOOT).

I can't tell how far it would reach without a wall, as I can't walk further than 20 feet from the TV and stay in line of sight. :P



what would be funny is if in some apartment complexes you could use your wiiU remote to access a neighbours WiiU.

Let them buy all the games and you play when they are not at home or are asleep.

That's why you pair your controllers with the system. But I guess it could be hacked, anything that is emited can be viewed in one way or another.

What about going through 2 walls?

What about bathroom walls?

What about wall made of reinforced concrete? Will it result in a lag?

What kind of wireless tech is in GamePad anyway? Bluetooth? Shouldn't be a problem even with concrete walls I believe. Just cheked couple of bluetooth and wi-fi devices I got, they work well. But video could be more informational if the range has been measured on a clear field, that way I could have calculated what effective range I'll get in my house given all obstacles.
