According to Nintendo France executive Stephan Bole, Nintendo is considering releasing multiple models of the Wii U at launch for people who didn't previously own Wii. They will include the Wii-mote controller. So you can get one for your mum and one for you.

In other words they are considering selling selling two packages. One with and one w/o the wii-mote/nunchuck. Possibly making a version w/o backward-compatibility

I'd just sell a Wiimote for a discounted price along it. Making an entirely new package doesn't make any commercial sense - as the packages including a Wiimote might go quickly unsold if the price difference is notable ($20+ more), and if it's not, then they should include it in the basic package, thus making just a single one and that's it.

I'm somehow angry because just a few days before the Nintedo direct I purchased a beautiful, shiny black Classic controller pro.
I held on as much as I could to my white CC, but then at the end , knowing that the CCpro was gonna work on the Wii U anyway, I purchased it anyway, planning on using it with the Wii U......then they announced the new wireless CC for Wii U.....I hope games are going to support the CCpro anyway for a long time, but then I already know what I'll purchase next......
Then I hope to be able to get a black Wii U and place it above/below of my white Wii, make it a nice black and white sandwich next to my TV.

I'm hoping for a package that includes the Wii U Pro controller. If not, I'm hoping the CC Pro is supported the same way.
Hahahaha.

Pretty cool idea, wonder if it will be discounted in anyway, or just mashed together with the illusion of being cheaper

Also, anyone who buys Mass Effect 3 for Wii U needs to be slapped, repeatedly and painfully.

No self respecting Mass Effect fan would buy Mass Effect 3 for a Wii U. It's a complete joke.

Do Asscreed or something instead, but ME3 for the Wii U is just laughably stupid as a concept.
Hey. It's just a concept. I didn't mean anything by it. XD

What if one package includes a Wii remote and nunchuck, and the other includes a Wii U Pro?

I could see that working. I would like for the package to include a discount coupon to use later for the one(s) not included in the package. But I doubt nintendo would do that though.

That sounds great. I already own a Wii, so I don't want to buy the Wiimote, Wii MotionPlus and Nunchuk again that I already paid quite a lot for. This stuff easily costs 50 euros in the average store; if I can save that kind of money when buying a Wii U or get a new controller instead of it I'd be happy.
