Nintendo Wii U GameCube controller will create more problems than solutions for Nintendo

Nintendo is making a GameCube like controller for the Wii U. This is one of Nintendo's most terrible idea as of late, the Nintendo Wii U will now have the Gamepad, the Wiimote, the pro controller and now this new controller that will reflect a lot to the design of the GameCube Controller. Could this be a step forward or bigger step back since maybe the new controllers are not really appealing to the audience like it was back at launch.

The main reason why this is a bad idea is because the Wii U is now becoming an accessory hub. This means that they're trying to encourage customers to purchase different accessories for different games but even so that's not the issue. The issue is towards Nintendo not having a main audience so these accessories will create clutter and more financial problems for the company.

Another issue I'm having with Nintendo this time, is that all this money can be focused towards developing more games or working with third-party developers to bring more games to the Wii U. Speaking of which, how do you expect for developers to react to this? Now they have to create code for this controller to provide functionality to the games they made. This will also revive an old issue Nintendo had in the past with the Wii U not being able to play GameCube titles on to gamepad. Except this time it can affect all the current games on the Wii U but maybe not affect previous GameCube titles which was probably their main intention.

Nonetheless the focus of Nintendo clearly hasn't changed, they are putting focus on other things aside from the main issue which is games. We keep hearing that they're working on titles but we don't only care about their main franchise games which is what they still don't understand. As a gamer personally I want to see more third-party support so that I know I have variety of games for the Wii U to play.
