This information comes from Nintendo of America president Reggie Fils-Aime…

“For us, that is not part of our vision. We believe that the GamePad is an integral part of Wii U.”

“During this week, we’re going to be showcasing other ways for utilizing the GamePad, and this has been a priority for Mr. Miyamoto. He, himself, has dedicated a lot of his personal energy to showing what can be done with the GamePad to really bring it to life. We’re committed to it. We believe that it is a key innovation that, otherwise, all you’re doing is making prettier pictures and using faster processors, and not bringing a lot of uniqueness in terms of gameplay.”
