The gamepad is a waste of money and Wii U should be sold without one

Half the cost of the Wii U is that stupid gamepad just because it has a screen. Guess what people have been using as screens before the Wii U came along. The pad itself costs what, $135ish? Pretty much costs almost as much as the Wii U itself would have, if it wasn't bundled with this rubbish.
Be honest, who here is going to put it into the corner and play with the pro controller or the wii mote plus. Not buying the Wii U on launch, so I hope I can save myself $135 by pressing a button to look at the menu.

The entire reason I'm excited for the system is the controller. The potential with games using it going forward makes me all warm and fuzzy inside.

Well that's a pessimistic view on it

The controller is pretty much the only reason I want the system. Otherwise it would just be a graphically updated wii, right?

I think there is going to be far more upside to the controller than downside...

$135 is pointless? Yeah, one poster is right. You can take a dump while playing, but your skills will take a dive when you're straining. Luckily for me, I go only twice a week. Maybe even less.

I think they realize people don't want the gamepad, because they came out and said all Wii U's are going to be sold with one. I just hope they cave and change their stance when they realize what a waste it is and people are still complaining about the economy and world being on fire.

Gee, then I hope all of the games you want to play are gamepad exclusive then. =/
