Lots of over reaction in these comments.

Wii u being offered without a gamepad does not magically take the gamepad away from everyone who likes it. I love it. I still think they should offer the console with out it.

I love it, bit I still don't like being forced to use it. If I want to play it annoying to have to get up and fetch the gamepad if I already have a controller. Give me the option to use the controller in my hand.

A gimped bundle with no gamepad should be offered and sold with a warning that some games/features will not work with out a gamepad (sold seperaterly).

Offer a discounted version for those who don't want it. Is mk8 or smash going to be worthless with out it? Why not offer a bundle for $50 cheaper without the gamepad? They would turn a profit on that bundle while taking a loss in the full bundle. Those with a gamepad lose nothing. Those who don't want one may buy it because it's cheaper and they are not interested in its features.

I do not see the problem. I love the gamepad but I see no reason that it must continue to be required and bundled with every Wii U for the entire life of the console. Even as someone who loves it, requiring it is still annoying at times and even if it is always bundled I would still appreciate a software update to remove its unneccessary requirement (let me start my console, enter my password, and start my game with my pro controller please). The gamepad will still have a massive install base among Wii U users and can still be refined and supported. Not requiring doesn't mean it has to be killed. Making it more enticing so even users who buy a "basic(no-gamepad)" bundle may want to go ahead and purcahse one seperately. Pre-install patches for games that require it that don't need to, and for games that can not be played without it at all simply re-label them (but really you could maybe just have a list on the box). Bundle a pro-controller and Mario Kart 8and sell it for $180. I think it is going to happen. See dropping 3D from the 3DS to get a lower price point to help expand user base when Pokemon launched. That came out of nowhere and I expect them to keep this a surprise as well.

@BossBattles Exactly. That's what's important and that the company make money. I am pretty sure Sony and Microsoft lost money overall on the PS3 and 360 from what I have read. Nintendo made money and they are in a great position again to make money this gen with the Wii U and 3DS.
