Just saw this from Nintendo Japan website
http://www.nintendo.co.jp/wiiu/hardware/accessories/index.html
12800 Yen each (13824 yen with 8% sales tax)

Before the update, the same website said that individual gamepads will be sold if there are games that support 2 gamepads.
Now they are selling them, with a statement saying the offer is intended for Wii U owners with lost or destroyed gamepad. Only 1 gamepad could be connected to a Wii U.

I hope they would release a gamepadless console (bundle with games do not require gamepad) and shave ~$100 off the console price. That will make the console $200 which is more affordable (But then no one will buy a $100 gamepad for Miiverse...)

  • DinohScene @ DinohScene:
    makin shit tonnes of money and gold
  • Kingy @ Kingy:
    How are you finding RDO, Dinoh? I've been thinking of pulling the trigger on it, but I've heard some complaints about it
  • Jayro @ Jayro:
    I wanna TSOP flash my soft-modded Xbox.
  • kenenthk @ kenenthk:
    If it's already soft modded you could just try chimp if it's not a 1.6
  • Jayro @ Jayro:
    I honestly haven't cracked it open to look, I don't have the proper tool. I need to order one, cut out the clock cap, and then TSOP flash it so I can replace the harddrive with a larger SATA one.
  • kenenthk @ kenenthk:
    I think anything pre 2005 is below a
    1.6 1.6 is just ass cause you gotta 5 wire mod it and chimp didn't work that well
  • kenenthk @ kenenthk:
    Should say on the label underneath
  • kenenthk @ kenenthk:
    Also if it is 1.6 leave the cap on or it'll brick it
  • DinohScene @ DinohScene:
    @Kingy I'm playing on private sessions sooo I can't judge about the community
  • DinohScene @ DinohScene:
    but from the encounters I had, low level pillocks can't shoot for shit, tryhards are almost non existent and the majority of the players are wary but friendly
  • DinohScene @ DinohScene:
    unlike GTAO, where it doesn't matter where you spawn in, atleast 3 tryhard bikes are coming for you the moment you spawned in
  • DinohScene @ DinohScene:
    also, I'm playing it on console, I know on PC it's a fuckfest of cheating fuck children :c
  • DinohScene @ DinohScene:
    re: pillocks can't shoot for shit
  • DinohScene @ DinohScene:
    I had a dumb moron behind me once when I was near S. Denis, wanting to pick up an egg
  • DinohScene @ DinohScene:
    pillock rode on his cunt horse behind me, entered dead eye and shot at me 3 times
  • DinohScene @ DinohScene:
    MISSED ALL HIS SHOTS!
  • DinohScene @ DinohScene:
    I turned around, popped him in the face with a humiliation round (varmint)
  • DinohScene @ DinohScene:
    he respawned, I murdered him quickly only to rapidly shoot the egg out of the tree and pick it up
  • DinohScene @ DinohScene:
    guy somehow thought it was a brilliant plan to come at me again
  • DinohScene @ DinohScene:
    one quick facepop and I decided to quickly teleport via wilderness camp cus fuck that arse, not going to waste precious time :')
  • DinohScene @ DinohScene:
    I have noticed that the game itself is quite sluggish
  • DinohScene @ DinohScene:
    could also be me just being 2fast4thegaem
  • DinohScene @ DinohScene:
    but overall, RDO is worth if
  • DinohScene @ DinohScene:
    it*, especially if you have some mates who join in
