Does Nintendo's Wii U only support 1 touchscreen controller?

Yahoo: Though the masses don’t seem to have picked up on this yet, one of the first things we noticed when Nintendo unveiled the Wii U this morning was that, though it showed plenty of multiplayer game concepts for the new console, none of them involved more than one Wii U controller at a time. We can confirm that the console definitely supports a Wii U controller and up to 4 more Wii Remotes, but we are becoming fairly certain that Nintendo is not currently planning to support more than one Wii U touchscreen controller on its upcoming system.

This isn't an official source but they were at E3 so I guess they would know more?

"While the various tablet-style features are certainly compelling, we're most intrigued by the controller's multiplayer capabilities. Instead of a traditional split-screen TV approach, players will be able to see the action on their own personal displays. With any luck, this could see a resurgence in offline multiplayer – AKA friends trash-talking each other on the same couch."

That pretty much implies multiple touch screen controllers. So then why so quiet Nintendo? Maybe the Wii U controller really IS 100 dollars. If the console only comes with 1 then people would have to shell out big cash to play party games with friends (if they all want the same controller).

But that doesnt seem like something Nintendo would do. The Wii has always been about playing together with your friends and family in your living room. Why would they ditch that for a fancy controller?

My guess as to why they only showed one at a time is due to the fact that the system will olny come with one?

Yeah, and I also think that they wanted to show the compatibility with the Wii-remotes and how the new controller is superior to it.
