I want to buy this Wii U I found on ebay but it does not come bundled with the WII U gamepad.
Would I be able to use an old Nintendo Wii remote (with plus) to navigate the Wii U menu or would I need a Nintendo Wii U gamepad to sync up the Wii remote before use?
Just wondering if I can get away with not having to buy the gamepad.
Edit: I already own a 3DS and would like a Wii U so that I'd be able to access the online features of Monster Hunter Ultimate. The one on ebay is considerably cheaper than most and I didn't want to pay the full retail price for the console when I'm only after one feature. Of course this would require Wi-FI so it seems I'd have to buy the gamepad with the console. Thanks for the help!
