UK catalogue retailer ‘Very.co.uk’ currently has for sale individual Wii U Gamepad Controllers. The price on the website for the controller is £89, which is roughly around $145. The website claims to have them in stock with delivery of the product to a UK address within 2 working days. Both the black and white versions are currently available to purchase. There currently is no need or benefit to owning a second GamePad, other than perhaps needing one to replace a broken GamePad controller that may not be covered under warranty. The link to the page where the controllers are available to buy can be found here: Very.co.uk But for the price of £89 / $145, in the future when there is a possible need for a second gamepad controller, would you consider buying one? Or is this price set too high? local_offer Nintendo wii u wii u gamepad stars Further Reading Nintendo loses patent appeal, ordered to pay Nintendo was brainstorming about Switch when AAAkabob Hopefully the official price goes down as tech gets less expensive. Mickey Mouse I’d consider one when games that support 2 come out. Btw wiiudaily, how would a controller not be covered under warranty just now as there’s still the standard 1 year warranty on all systems, unless someone was proven to have abused their gamepad. Calvin Bowens You accidentally dropping it in the pool?! Calvin Bowens I think it’s expensive for just the gamepad. Kuzon I think a good question to ask is how did they get these Gamepads only? If Nintendo isn’t selling them like this yet, are these from Wii U systems that no longer have them? And is this an Official price for the pad from Nintendo or are they just making it up? Gabe Hoffman It was proven false http://www.nintendolife.com/news/2012/12/false_alarm_wii_u_gamepads_not_going_solo_just_yet Threinfhir Wrong. http://www.nintendolife.com/news/2012/12/false_alarm_wii_u_gamepads_not_going_solo_just_yet Sylux A bit expensive imo, won’t be bothered to buy a secondary gamepad unless games come which support it and the game doing so is worth it to buy at all, for some reason I feel they’ll be used on sports games first, and I hardly ever buy a sports games. So pass for me for the time being. X3Charlie I’ll wait ’til it reaches $100.00 I also wish Nintendo would start selling the Wiimote Plus and the Nunchuck together at $50.00. I don’t think at this point they should still cost the same :/ TheLast No don’, that’s a terrible idea. At least wait until people know it isn’t a Wii with a new controller. Chris Chung price is waay to high. 70$ is a bit more acceptable. Josh Belcher I am one of the few people on EARTH that need to buy one of these. DAMN I wish this was real! Mr. Resetti huh? probably an error, I know Japan is the only place announced so far to have individual Gamepads on sale and I’m sure other places will get them soon enough – this is probably a placeholder thingamajig before the price or availability is confirmed by the big N. MetroidZero Sure hope mine doesn’t break… ConCity Soldier I wish! I want to have a 2 Gamepads because of the low battery life. I can always have one Gamepad charging while using another one. But until then…. Bianca Galindo Can someone in the US order one?
