I wonder if anyone is going to try and actually purchase one of these. It's not like there's any reason to use two GamePads right now.

"Stylus support"... how nice?

And where's this chess and backgammon they talk about? Can't say I've seen those in the eShop...

Not gonna lie. I will be one of the first ones to purchase a second Gamepad, even without any support for 2 player games from Nintendo. I like to keep multiple controllers in even rotation. I hate the thought of one controller wearing out and showing age significantly more than another. I also hate the idea of having only a single controller to game on, which is the case for Wii U right now. Call me weird, but worn out controllers urk me to no end (i.e. the N64 analog stick).

@GolfDude
Really? Do you think iPhone's in the US have NTSC screens and iPhones in the UK have PAL screens?
PAL/NTSC are analog encoding terms and have no meaning in HDTV's or a digital display like the Wii U controller.

PAL/NTSC are terms that are simply still being used incorrectly in the gaming industry to describe something relating to region locking. Any TV made in the last 10+ years at least can display both PAL and NTSC anyways.
