Hi, I'm thinking of getting a refurb model from the nintendo eshop to play Bayonetta 2. I know almost nothing about the Wii U. I have an xbox360. What firmware typically comes with the refurbs? I'm confused about the gamepad. Can you play games on it away from the console, like a portable device? Is it still true you can't use the gamepad to play Wii games (like Madworld)? Thanks.
