Again, I think the gamepad adds zero appeal to the console to convince those who has not bought it yet. Now, a $75-$100 dollars diference, THAT would sway a lot of people into bying it for its exclusives.
But you know what, I actually think that it is too late for that. That is something Nintendo should have done in its first year just like MS did. I think all they can do now is try to put more value into their bundles throwing more games in. And maybe an option of a $250 console with no games, for those interested in other non traditional games (like Bayonetta, Zombie U, etc).
If they removed the Tablet during that time, games like ZombiU would be unusable. Plus, it would just be a weak Nintendo console if they did that.
My true form. You like it?
