WiiMotes in the box are definitely possible but from what they've shown and what they've done in the past I wouldn't be banking on it. No games shown required it for play and being a part of multiplayer would only be a reason to include it if there were two controllers bundled with previous consoles.

I hope it comes with a Wiimote too, but I have my doubts. Just look at this bit of IGN interview.

IGN: a lot of these games, and Nintendo Land too, require you to have several Wii Remotes. And even a game like Pikmin, primarily the control is with the Wii Remote and the Nunchuk. Are you looking at bundling multiple controllers with the system at launch? Because it seems like a lot of these games, to be fully understood, need several controllers.

Fils-Aime: So, again, we're not going to talk about our configuration. But what I would tell you is, we're cognizant... US 40 million units, globally 100 million units. Against all those units there's a lot of Remotes and Nunchuks, a few Balance Boards. And so we want to leverage that installed base and not have the consumer to pay for another accessory when they already may be fully satiated with what they have in the household. We're going to be very thoughtful. That's the beauty of what we have, all of that is backward compatible. The consumer is going to feel great about that aspect of our value.

Reggie's right, I already have 4 Wiimotes. But I worry about who will bother including motion based control options in their games if Wiimotes don't come with the new systems.

I don't think I got HDMI cables with the Blu-Ray player I got a few months ago and I don't think I've yet seen a TV that only has HDMI inputs. I could be wrong on that though. If people don't have a spare HDMI cable floating around the house then they can probably grab one at a Target, Big W or Red Dor or wherever so that's not that big a problem.

It's pretty unusual to get any kind of hook-up cable with a video deck, so I'm not surprised you didn't get anything with your Blu-Ray. I would expect any console sold to come with some kind of video cable to hook it up to the TV just because that's what companies that sell these things do and if you're selling a console and bigging up the HD aspect then including an analogue cable seems a bit counter-intuitive in an age of HD flat panel TVs.

The PS3 and 360 don't come with an HDMI cable or at least they didn't. When I bought my PS3 I was stuck with a composite cable and couldn't even make out the small text for MGS4. I didn't have HDMI on my TV at time so I had to buy the overpriced Sony brand component cables and use those until I got my new TV. Maybe things have changed since 2008 though I doubt it and I doubt Nintendo is going to throw an HDMI cable in the box even though they are really cheap. Name brand accessories are a great way for the console makers to make some more dollars.

I did get a cable it just wasn't HDMI. Infact I don't think I've brought anything that supported HDMI and the mandatory SD connections that came with a HDMI cable. The Wii U will definitely some with some AV cables but I doubt it'll be HDMI.

Hopefully the Wii U will come with Hdmi cables because all the tv's in my home support them.

The Wii U gamepad
A Wii U pro controller
1 set of a Wiimote and nunchuk
A charging cradle for the gamepad
Manual
All needed cables
Stylus
Nintendoland
Sd card
Sensor Bar
And maybe codes for eshop free to play games.

Should I buy a cheap HDMI right now? I somehow have a feeling one won't be included. Since it's a digital signal this would these be ok?

Yes, go for as cheap as you can pretty much. Really shouldn't matter at all how good the HDMI cable is unless you're pushing for something beyond stereoscopic 1080p at 60fps or similar. All should work just as good... and don't let a sales guy ever try to convince you that it's worth getting that $100 HDMI cable.

HDMI is such a Godsend, small, superior, convenient, video and audio in one. Just plug in 1 thing... and your done!
