With the recent announcement of the Wii U at E3 there has been some confusion as to the rather novel tablet/main controller. We already knew that you can connect all of your original Wii hardware, specifically Wii Remotes and the like, to Nintendo's next-gen console, but it was a bit ambiguous as to how many of the tablet-like controllers could be purchased and used on a single console.

According to an article at, you will not be able to purchase the newfangled Wii U controller separately. This means that Wii U owners will be limited to local multiplayer by supplementing the tablet-style controller with Wii Remotes. The jury is still out on whether Wii U owners can synchronise their controllers to other Wii U consoles. But even if this is possible, at $600 for a new console, that’s one hell of a mark-up if you only wanted a second controller.

I think it is starting to look pretty clear that the console only supports one Wiiu controller at a time.
I hope by the time they release the new console, they have bumped up the hardware to support two. It seems a little un-Wii (we) to not permit at least two players to both use the new controller and get the full experience from the new console.

Totally agree.

Makes sense though. With what they want to achieve, one controller is viable for online play. Going local multiplayer, you just pick up Wii remotes/standard controllers and enjoy the games. And also some games allow 5 people to play, with 4 people using Wii remotes/controllers and 1 person using WiiU controller.

My guess too Lynx. I heard someone else on my facebook say that it was confirmed that it was a 1:1 thing. Gonna be a little balls though when the first person puts their wii U remote through their TV and now has to get a new console, and TV.
