will they ever make a gamepad-less system

Absolutely, TC! Next generation of course, they won't be making a Wii U without gamepad.

The Wii U can't even function without the Game Pad. If you want a Wii U, you have to use the Game Pad.


Wrong. This can be changed through a patch. The gamepad is not a selling point. People arent buying this system bc the average consumer is not interested in a console with some cheap tablet. Theyd rather buy the ps4 or x1 since they have excellent dev support.

If nintendo drops it, price goes down a LOT, and it eliminates this goofy controller that is not only not helping the system, but actually hurting it.


Stop calling it a tablet, because it isn't one.

Always this. The Wii U gamepad (much like the host console) has never been anything more than a laughable token gesture that was outdated virtually the moment it was conceptualized. The fact that even Nintendo themselves, to this very day, are still utterly clueless as to its basic (let alone optimal) utilization tells the only story worth hearing.

Thank you, for your extensive knowledge on console programming, no seriously!

Having alternative controllers required for the Wii U is the worst thing to happen in video games in a long time. It used to be that you bought the system, it came with a controller, and everyone just shut the hell up and didn't whine that optional peripherals should replace the main controller.

Now, the Wii U comes with its main controller, but in order to play other games, you have to have other, different controllers. Now lots of people are whining "Well, if I have to own this other controller anyway, I'd rather use that instead, so get rid of the main one."

This is never how video games have worked. Just stop already.

idk what a dead horse is.


It's a figure of speech. If you're "beating a dead horse" it means you're bringing up an issue that's been discussed many times before and shot down many times before.

So I mathematically point out how this "console" can be sold for $199 and still profit greatly, and insecure Nintendrones call me a troll and put me on their ignore list. Makes sense. Sorry I offended you kiddies

Mark and move on. If all he wanted was a way to get the console for $200, he has had an option since post #10.

If you are too poor go buy a damn refurbished one for $200 from Nintendo that has a 1yr warranty, and the gamepad...
