The Wii U Does Not Come with a Sensor Bar

Kotaku - The Wii came with a Sensor Bar. The Wii U does not. The logic behind that seems to be that Nintendo thinks Wii U customers already have a Wii, so they can use that Sensor Bar with the Wii U.

Those customers who do not have a Sensor Bar, Nintendo is more than happy to sell them one for ¥2,030.

Couldn't you use the controller and stand as the sensor bar?

the sensor bar is for the original wii-mote. And really for point at the screen type of games. The wii-mote does not use the sensor bar when you hold it sideways nor does it use the sensor bar when used with the classic controller or the nunchuck.

Games like house of the dead will need it but games like wii bowling wont.

The wii-u says it is compatible with wii accessories. It never said it came with them.

You can always do the candle trick. Light up two candles in front of your tv, turn the lights off in the room, then have fun... Works surprisingly well.

Who needs real sensor bars when the
Amish can use candle sticks for the same purpose?
