Wii U controller won’t be sold separately?
Ever since Nintendo demonstrated the Wii U controller in a multiplayer game questions have been surrounding it. The demonstration only showed local multiplayer with one person using the controller while the other players used Wii controllers. This seemed to suggest that only one person in a multiplayer game would be using the Wii U’s new controller.
It now seems that this has been confirmed. According to CVG, they asked a Nintendo spokesperson about the price of the Wii U and the controller the spokesperson had this to say: “”Both the controller and the console will be sold as one unit. You won’t be able to buy the controller alone.”
The Nintendo representative also went on to say that multi-player games for the Wii U were being designed with the idea of one person using the Wii U tablet controller while the others used Wiimotes.
There is a chance that the Nintendo rep was mistaken or that Nintendo might allow for more than one tablet in the future but if not, what do you think of the idea of only one tablet for multi-player games?
