Its called a Wii U. It has the word Wii in it! therefore, I would expect Wii Controllers to be used for it as much as the Wii U ones.
also i don't believe the wii's controllers are not out of date.
making games compatible with future consoles is hard to program for. Even some ps3 models can't play ps2 games.
Its not easy programming. You have to change the code and stuff.
We can't play Wii games with the gamepad because of the same reasons. the Wii U reads it the exactly the same as a Wii will. The Wii U functions the exact same as the wii when is reads them, therefore it would be extremely hard to program different controllers for, That's why Nintendo made the classic controller specifically for this so that it could
I see were your getting at, but making the games compatible with the Wii U controllers is harder than it seems. although maybe games are compatible with the pro controller. It depends on how the pro controller functions.
Please reconsider not buying the Wii U
