Its the Dev kit but specs of the actual console should be comparable no?

Seems these were debunked as fake

Potentially new specs?

That can't be right. It looked to be similar sized to the Wii. No way you get 4 2.5GHz cores and a BluRay player in that....

Specs are for the Devkit :p not the actual WiiU itself. One can only assume the actual specs of the console will be very comparable/similar to the Devkit.

Its fake, it was made before e3. And Wii U doesn't have a HD, it uses flash memory with options of sd card and usb drive expansion.

How is it fake because it was made before E3?

Its the specs of the Devkit not the console as stated in the picture not the actual console

Xbox360 used a MAC G5 as a early beta Devkit IIRC

Check the photos of the console in action most of the photos if not all of the WiiU are of it in a cabinet (with possibly a MAC/PC (Devkit) powering the screens not the actual console itself)

looks quite impressive, they'll be able to get a lot of good gaming out of it. no intention of getting it, will stick with 720/PS4, but looks good and will help put the pressure on the other two so we'll get better consoles and better value.

And some rumors are pointing to that they are udnerclocking the ones the devs have to hide its true power for a bit.

nvm. I didn't know they actually realized a picture of the actual console.

The controller?

I assume he means the machine itself. It's not that much taller than than the Wii, but it is noticeably longer.

I guess they could fit all that tech if they have foregone a HDD - but that decision is ultimately a stupid one.
