I found out that you can get a WiiU, just the console on eBay for just over $100. Now obviously you need controls are cables and stuff but can anything from the original Wii be used? Such as the sensor bar or power cord. Can you use a regular Wiimote to turn on and use the system menu? What can't I do with the Gamepad. I don't really want a WiiU that bad but I figured if I could pick one up for that cheap, I might as well. But I'm betting you really need the Gamepad.
