A cardboard cutout of the gamepad is being sold on ebay.

Why would people waste money on something you can make for free.

^ Yep, people sell some stupid things on ebay. Razz

I got to try this last night, and got to play the Rayman Legends demo. Playing on the gamepad was fun, and although people have said the gamepad was lighter than it looks, I was still surprised at how light it was. Razz

Gamespot wrote: Nintendo has revealed the first Wii U GamePad prototypes, giving gamers a look at what the tablet-like controller looked like in its very first iterations.

The first iteration was a Wii Zapper with an LCD screen placed on its barrel. According to a representative from Nintendo's Entertainment Analysis & Development Division (EAD), this prototype allowed the company to better understand the two-screen approach it would ultimately decide to make the focus of the Wii U.

The second prototype resembled the final iteration of the GamePad more closely. It was created using a monitor with controllers on either end attached to the device with double-sided tape. Thirty game concepts were conceived with this controller, and it ultimately led to the creation of Nintendo Land.

Very interesting, the Wii Zapper thing seems to be a completely failed idea imo, but I guess you've got to try a lot of different designs before deciding on the best one.

That looks so weird! I don't think Nintendo would be able to sell many of those!

^ Same here, especially the Wii Zapper thing. I wonder where they got the idea for that. Razz

I want one of these... but I don't make much money, so I don't think I can afford one. >.<

They look really cool, though.

I wonder if they'll come in more colors than just black and white at some point.

Red and Blue would be cool, but I'd rather have some other more interesting colors. Razz Maybe Gold lol.
