Want two Wii U GamePads? Too bad.
One notable omission from the Nintendo Direct pricing of the Wii U was the cost of an individual GamePad. But Nintendo doesn’t care, because as product marketing manager Bill Trinen said "none of the launch-window titles support dual GamePad play”, so why would you need two?
Obviously "it will be released once the content is there to support it," says Trinen. "Our anticipation is that there will be (games that support it) sometime next year." Now Japan has seen the individual pricing, so they must be getting something we aren’t, but since the launch window is through March of 2013, it might be awhile before you need to buy another one.
Fine by me!
