Individual Wii U Game Pads go on sale for £89, translates to $144

Wii U Game Pads are now available for sale individually in the UK for £89. That price tag translates into $144 US dollars. (Nintendo, Wii U)

Update Turns out the retailer listing was a mistake and has since been removed.

Does it make coffee too?

Edit- I suggest everyone do their best not to screw up their gamepad less the wish to pay a fortune for a new one.

Looks like we now know what half that system price was... Lol

lets hope...
they make more games to support multiple pads. I can actually see a new mario kart where the screen on the pad doubles as a rear view.

so you can see who is coming up behind and if you have a powerup like the banana peel or decoy box...drop it behind you to throw them off their game.

£89? It was around what I was expecting but I was hoping to be proven wrong. This pretty much proves than any two tablet game will only come from Nintendo as no 3rd party is going to assume that the majority of consumers are going to she'll out £89 for another controller (especially so early on or that it is absolutely necessary to do so)

Also very is a scam so don't buy from there. They will rip you off with hidden charges and spam amongst other things

That price is shocking, you can get a cheap 720p tablet for £50!

The Wii U gamepad is not a tablet though. It's a game console controller with a touch screen in the middle.

Meaning it should be cheaper, not more expensive!

Fortunately one comes with the system then, right?

Gonna purchase another down the line
It would be great if the second tablet user could browse the internet, while the other user is playing games, or they both can play different games while using their own individual tablets.
