The Wii U's controller is its main selling point, otherwise it's merely a Wii HD. Consumers have had to purchase an additional controller with nearly every console ever released. Only allowing for one controller per Wii U is going to cause some confusion, and seems like Nintendo is holding back the system's potential.

But seriously. How much is this controller going to cost?
