Who needs a TV when your controller's got a screen? The Wii U's Off-TV Play feature allows supported games to be played on the tablet-like gamepad. As long as the Wii U is receiving power and you're within range, you don't even need a television. Perfect for those ugly moments when the TV is being used for a Glee marathon. Oh, the horror...
Speaking of horror, Resident Evil: Revelations producer Tsukasa Takenaka recently confirmed that the Wii U version of the survival horror game will support Off-TV Play. You know, because the console port of a handheld game needs to be a little more mobile.
Co-op in Resident Evil: Revelations is limited to two players in the special Raid Mode. The Wii U, Xbox 360, PlayStation 3 and Windows versions are scheduled for worldwide release later this week.
