Nintendo could drop the Gamepad, but it would be costly to do so in my opinion. Nevertheless it remains a VERY real option. When your flagship titles are multiplayer games where most people can only use wiimotes anyway.. Mario Kart and Smash.
Here is the problem with the theory that manufacturing will get cheaper and lower the console price in the long run: Nintendo can't even sell the stock they have now

I don't have a wii u, but I have a wii. I skipped ps3 and xbox due to both money and because Nintendo has the games I actually want.

@Waveboy
I think it is partly Mario fatigue. More importantly 3D World, from watching YouTube videos, seems too simplistic. They did four player, which is cool, but the environment isn't lively enough.
Also some gamers will avoid because it isn't native 1080p. I'm not saying 3D World looks bad, it actually looks pretty good, but I'm saying it doesn't impress anywhere like Super Mario Galaxy or Super Mario 64. That's the whole problem with the Wii U really. Tablet controllers are not impressive to many people like the wiimote. Think "wii would like to play" vs the best spin you can put on Wii U.

a lot of you guys and saying it's bad that there's a new DKC. I'm concerned that you want the 2D games stop being released. It has been a few years since I played DKCR.. The SNES had three donkey kongs, the Playstation had three Crash Bandicoots. In a few years up you will buy games like dKC:tf because it is there and it is different.
Also, Nintendo is just transitioning into HD. how much they spend to make simpler games like this happen first?

xThomas commented on Wii U Selling 1.2 Games Per Console In North A...:

Hmm. I'm a little unsure of this, if it includes the nintendo-land pack in for the deluxe set or not. If it does, then about 1 in 5 people are buying a second game to go with their wii u. I don't think I'm alone in thinking that a game should suffice for a few weeks if not months, especially at this price. People are being more frugal with their money.. or at least their not spending it on this. I can't really believe the former statement. But a Wii U can be expensive, as ideally it should have great multiplayer games focused on your living room, and that takes controllers (which of course adds a significant cost)!
Also, does it include downloaded games?
