Definitely ditch the tablet, it's killing the console. It's driving the price up and driving consumers away because it's a huge beast to hold and (even though it isn't) it looks heavy as fuck. I think the thing is too big and I have giant man-hands. Most of my female friends do a double take when they see the size of one in the wild and try and imagine holding it (yes I know how that sounds lol ).
Wiimote + nunchuck was great, loved that controller. The feeling of swooshing my hand across in Mario galaxy every time I was going to be blasted out of one of those star cannons was amazing. The tablet-pad things implementation in Mario3dWorld looks more like a scratch and sniff card without the sniff.
