Wii U can support up to 4 controllers at the same time and more when Wiimotes are involvedd. Only one controller included in the box and they're considering what the pricing will be for the controller at retail (I'm thinking $89.99). The nubs we've know about since E3 and all developers are working with the old kits and will get new ones by the end of the month.

 

You're talking to the Resident Nintendo Nutjob here. I'll be buying the Wii U at launch even if the only game available for two is Wii Sports 2 hahaha.

 

Oh, btw. What happened to the Vita pre-orders number you would be posting around here? Would make for an interesting "this is how much the 3DS had in pre-orders/this is how much the Vita has in pre-orders" post.

It can only control up to 1 tablet controller. Iwata himself said its possible to add a 2nd, but you would have to sacrifice online to do so since the tablets use 802.11 to communicate in part with the console itself. It will support more wii-motes but those are bluetooth only controllers.

And the Gamestop PR lady refuses to respond to me anymore. The last email she sent was "I'll have something for you tomorrow" and I've replied 5 times since then and she will not respond. FYI its the same lady that made the public announcement how Gamestop is removing the Deux Ex Onlive coupons from each case.

"Nintendo's Satoru Iwata
recently said in an interview that games enlisting more than one Wii U
controller aren't being considered just yet -- although they are possible. Our very own Ittousai tells us that Iwata told Diamond Online that the Wii U can
technically support multiple screen-controllers,
but that additional
slabs would be too expensive to sell on their own. Iwata went on to say
that the console would ship with only one, and that game developers
should design titles under the assumption that each console will use a
single Wii U controller."

 

Right now it's a cost issue with Nintendo being conservative and thinking that  people would not want to spend more $$$ on a second controller (this from the company that sells us the Wii Balance Board!). They'll eventually do so as split screen FPS would greatly benefit from having the extra info on the controller itself and free up screen space.

 

As for the Gamestop lady… maybe she got fired or moved on? Weird how someone responds to emails for a bit and then disappears. Hate that!

It's more of keeping the cost of the console down which Nintendo is having a hard time with. With the current specs…the console would easily cost $400+ even in a years time. Since these tablets use the 802.11, they would have to have multiple recievers built into the console to support them and that is costly.

And nah..she still works at Gamestop…just refuses to answer now for some reason.
