Your reaction: Wii U gets a 150 price cut, GamePad no longer included
That would be completely stupid. Now there is even less reason for people to want a Wii U. You basically just said to remove the second screen from the DS. That defeats the point of the system.
I'm really starting to think mods hate me. no...it's official now.
I'd be soooo pissed if they did that bc I feel all focus would be lost for serious gamepad support

TC Bad idea is Bad.
Find a way to make the Screentroller cheaper (without loss of fabrication quality, etc.), drop price to go with manufacturing savings.
Drop price of Wiimote & Nunchuk. There is NO reason for it to be $40. It's the same damned thing as what was used on the Wii, just in WiiU packaging. Pack it in.
Dump the Nintendo Land pack-in for the Black console. It's a piece of crap anyway.
Advertise Wii game upscaling with Backward Compatibility. Ensure to thumb nose at Sony/Microsoft for not doing so with their new systems.
Look at the services Microsoft & Sony are offering with their respective systems. Copy/Paste.
Release a "killer app" game with these changes. Release another killer first party game every 2 or 3 months thereafter for the next 6-9 months (at least). Get people's attention, get their money. Third Party devs/publishers will follow suit.

I wanted to find out how important the GamePad was for the Wii U in GFAQer's eyes, without directly asking.
I must say I'm surprised that virtually everyone hates the idea of a GamePad-less Wii U.,

Nintendo's current strategy is viable. This? Would easily kill any product on the market.

That would be a terribad idea. One of the worst I've ever read. Though sadly, I've read it many times before.

The Wii U would die once and for all, not including the controller needed to operate the system is just plain stupid.
Tada! I'm a tomato!
The GamePad will now be treated as an add-on accessory. A large amount of games will still use it, but it isn't required.
not ever gonna happen.

That would be a nice optional bundle, but 150 for the game pad seems a bit extreme. A Nexus 7 is only 200 and thats fully functional without another device.
If I support the game company, then I won't be supporting the blank DVD business.
