I found a deal on a wii u by itself, i was wondering should i get it or get on with a gamepad?
Gamepads aren't console locked, and there's a sync button on the back.
Imagine if they were console locked? xP
Hey, Nintendo's dumb but they're not stupid
You should have a gamepad for it. I think you need the second screen for entering the settings menu. I could never use the settings menu with the wiimote, it directs me to use the gamepad.
What are you guys talking about? You CAN'T synch a gamepad with a console. The gamepad that comes with the console is manufactured to be permamently linked to it. If you breake it, you can't get a replacement yourselfe. You need to send the whole console to Nintendo so THEY can synch another one to it...
Correct me if I'm wrong though.
But I'm pretty positive that if there are no hardmod/homebrew ways to do this, you can't do it yourself in a legit way...
Make a double research before you buy or you'll get screwed pretty bad :/
All I know is the gamepad is region locked.
@pwsincd Is correct. I've synced two different gamepads to my WiiU, no issues. On a side note, if they were hard locked, why would Nintendo bother with a sync button? It would connect to its parent console automatically.
SRSLY?! Then why is the tech support bi*ching about it D:
Wow. Thanks for the cold bucket. Maybe I WILL get myself a WiiU now since I saw plenty of cheap ones without the gamepad, and used solo gamepads as well...
Yeah I have 2 Wii U's (5.5.1 and 5.3.2) and only 1 game pad. I sync between the two: it's easy!
The Wii U gamepad is region-locked (for updates only for some reason) and works fine for games and everything until you do a system update. a system update requires a gamepad of the same region as the Wii U to update for some reason.
