That's the genius of this... they DO come cheap. Partly because the screens can be purchased in massive bulk, but also because the controller is a totally dumb device... there's no CPU/GPU or any internal stuff... its just a screen and a battery. Nintendo are confident they can sell them very cheaply, and their vision is that every member of the household has their own controller, that works wirelessly throughout the house. So Timmy can surf the web in his bedroom, streaming from the Wii U, and if the parents want to check what he's looking at, at any time, on their own screens or even on the TV if they want.
Unless the pitch my employers have been getting is completely wrong, of course, but so far its been spot on.
