This feature only allows Wii software to be displayed on the GamePad. A Wii Remote Plus or Wii Remote is required to play Wii software titles. Â² Users can delete saved usernames and passwords from the Internet Browser settings. Â³ Sometimes data may not be displayed correctly depending on the size and format of the PDF file. PDF files cannot be saved -------- Wii software being on gamepad is awesome, but I just wish they'd enable the gamepad controls to act like classic controller in this mode, but the gamepad has a built in sensor bar so using a wiimote with it is still practical. I know no one here really proabably cares, but hey. I am excited!
