Personally Nintendo has been teasing us for some time with an update that would support two game pads.. I think that is when you'll be able to go out and buy another game pad.. and it would be so cool.. if you were playing something Like Warriors Orochi 3 Hyper and both players just in case could play right off the game pad...

I am a wild and free Ninetails not a trainer.. get over it...

@Beevdog I see what you mean. To that end I have set up a guest account free of NNID just in case.

We'll get them as soon as there's a game that supports them. I'm personally not spending $100+ on another gamepad because I really don't see the point in having two.

They havent said anything about it for ages! Hoping its supported in time for Mario Kart 8!

The gamepad acts as a wii remote (tilt to turn) or pro controller (left stick to turn), and it has a horn in the middle..it doesn't really add to the experience too much

Two Wii U gamepads on the Wii U playing Call Of Duty Ghosts and not being able to see the other persons screen is a major first.

With certain 3DTVs on the PS3 you can have two players see different images while they're looking at the same screen, so it's impossible to "screen look"

On point 2: You do everything on the Wii U without the GamePad

I'd like to see you navigate the eShop without a gamepad ;)

@PloXyZeRO Yup. But then, Nintendo said they plan to make it possible to buy games through Miiverse in a further update (hopefully the October one) so soon even this will be feasible. :P

Oh really? It's about time! I hope they also include a feature where you can turn off the gamepad without turning off the console.

There already is one: you can turn off the GamePad screen from the Home menu and play with another controller.

The idea of 6 player mariokart or another game is a real appealing prospect for me. Hopefully the support will come sooner rather than later, as I feel that more than 4 player multiplayer is a huge draw for the Wii U.

As soon as Nintendo releases the Wii model with DVD playback and the Vitality sensor. Never. I believe if they sold GamePad separately on store it would be prohibitively expensive, like €100-120. And no one pays that for a controller.
If the Wii U install base grows exponentially, though, some games might support two gamepads as there would more people with a Wii U that could take their GamePad to play at a friend's. But I don't expect this to ever be supported by many games.
