Rumors are going around that Nintendo is planning to release a new SKU for the Wii U. The new package is said to reintroduce the Wii U to the market.

Here's the major changes.
- Wii U to be renamed "The U"
- The pro controller to be the default instead of the gamepad. *games that require the gamepad will be patched to be compatible with the pro*
- New online account system
- New MSRP to be $199.99 *64GB Ed. w/NSMBU download code*

*topic will be updated as necessary

You go ahead and believe this, TC.
Excuse me, more spaghetti please.
And bring some more egg rolls while you're at it.

This is the smart thing for Nintendo to do, actually.

That said, they won't. THE GAMEPAD. IS. THE FUTURE.
Looks like general sporting banter to me and calling someone butthurt and calling them the donkeys isn't that big of a deal either. - When Moderator Uses Brain

Not going to happen. If Nintendo drops the gamepad pad, they're committing suicide because the gamepad is what is making the console stand out from the rest.

I'm going to say that there's no chance of this happening, but then again, I would've said the same for the 2DS. In this case though, I think the GamePad is too big of a thing to just drop, whereas the 3D was always an optional bonus.
