Don't get too excited about buying a bunch of Wii U gamepads. Nintendo just confirmed that it won't be selling its controllers separately at launch in North America.

What, you wanted more information? It sounds like you probably won't need more that one controller. Nintendo of America president Reggie Fils-Aime clarified that none of the Wii U launch games will support the use of more than one controller at launch. The Wii U pro controller (the one without the screen) will cost $49.99.
