1up - Our First Look at the Final Wii U Hardware

1up - With less than two weeks remaining until the Wii U arrives here in the U.S., Nintendo has finally delivered hardware to the press for review purposes. At this point, you've probably decided whether or not you're planning to pick up one of these new consoles at launch, but we know a lot of people are curious about the system. So we've decided to go old-school by posting a simple photo gallery of the hardware, the games, and their packaging. Wondering about the Wii U? We can't answer all your questions, but hopefully this satisfies a little of your curiosity.

The story is too old to be commented.

Why don't these wimps tear it open? Someone give Tomshardware a copy so we can get down to the guts. I want suer nerdy details on the specs.

Yup, lets see the chips being measured properly and lets have some proper power consumption figures when running. Let me know how noisy it is and how hot it gets.

I am nosy and wanna see how it stacks up finally I want a full on teardown.

Can anyone tell me if the Wii U comes with a wall socket adaptor (like iphones) for charging the gamepad and pro controller or are you forced to tether them to the Wii U itself to recharge?

eagle211601d ago (Edited 1601d ago )

Yes, the DELUXE comes with a AC adapter for both the console AND GamePad.

The GamePad also comes with a charge cradle and stand in addition to this adaptor for the DELUXE version of the WiiU.

Was I helpful?

So do how does the BASIC version works?

DaCajun1601d ago (Edited 1601d ago )

Actually both versions come with 2 ac adapters for the one for the console and one for the game pad.

off topic (still wii u related) wasn't there gonna be some bayonetta 2 info today?

nevin11601d ago


I dont get why the internal storage gap between the Deluxe(32) and Basic(8) are that wide. Since the Deluxe is 32GB, than the Basic should be 16GB.

DaCajun1601d ago

I agree with you there it should be closer considering how cheap storage is these days but I'm getting the 32GB and hooking an old 500GB internal turned external with a case from one of my old PS3s that i killed playing too much, lol.

Sorry but the type of flash RAM that they are using isn't cheap actually...
