Because nintendo always says that people will jump on board the wii u wagon once they get their hands on the revolutionary new experiences only the gamepad can off. Yet its been confirmed that both w101 and pikmin 3 have bad touch screen controls. At e3 they didn't say anything on how other games will utilize the gamepad. Im guessing mario kart will just show a map, 3d land will just offer offscreen play again and donkey kong will just show a map or something. Nintendo had yet to have a game that shows off the potential most games will probably just show a map. So is that really worth the $350 when its still the same gameplay experience instead of the new one nintendo promised?

I kinda like to imagine that all Voice-Actors are reality-jumping individuals basically stuck in a Quantum Leap situation.

Pikmin 3 doesnt have bad touch controls they work great for commanding your other captains. As for mario Kart 8 the gamepad can be used as a steering wheel like the wiimote sideways could.
