Satoru Iwata told The Telegraph that the second screen on the controller was almost scrapped. "Sometime during that final discussion we almost gave up on the idea of the additional screen," Iwata said during the interview. "This was due to our concern over the expected high cost, it may not have been feasible to create this and sell it at a reasonable price point for the consumers." However, Nintendo has confirmed the Wii U will be at a surprisingly affordable price. So don't panic.
