Wii U Controller Range Only Reaches Same Room

That’s the impression Nintendo legend Shigeru Miyamoto left us when speaking on the subject, at least. You may remember the Wii U’s unique capability of streaming the console’s video output to the controller’s screen. It’s not hard to see why using the controller anywhere around the house would be desirable, but apparently it just doesn’t work that way.
