Shocking revelations! Scandalous leaks! Yes, welcome to silly season. We analyse all the facts and rumours ahead of E3 2012...
"But the fact that the idea was even fielded is important. Rumours may not reflect Nintendo's thinking, but they do reflect the public's. These are stories cooked up by gamers hoping to make sense of Wii U. They give the machine incredi-specs, correct its perceived flaws and imagine a bright online future - all the things we'd change if we could. This feature isn't intended to shoot down flights of fancy, but to show how 'boring' reality may just trump them." And that the most important part of any rumor. Rumors are generally ridiculous in nature and reflect what the public/small proportion of the public want to see. At the end of the day its all bull anyway
The truth is, there isn't any. All we can do is wait until E3 and hear from Nintendo themselves.
This is a really in-depth article examining all the WiiU rumors and what could realistically come of them. I particularly enjoyed the speculation on upcoming games. Nice to see a piece where the author has actually done some homework and isn't just making things up as he goes along (aside from the bits of harmless speculation such as Nintendo will start making toys again, etc.). Good read.
Holy crap, a speculative [Wii U] article that cites facts in its analysis? I think N4G is about to implode upon itself.
LOL Phantom disagree. With a fact followed closely by a joke.
Why articles that take an educated look at the wii u rumors barley gets any attention here while any negative crap hits the first page?
Because N4G users love negativity?
the words truth and rumor shouldn't ever be included in the same sentence because by definition a rumour is just a rumour.all the negitive rumours have come from "unnamed sources"and all the positive rumours have come straight from the mouths of named devs, so go figure.also this articles analysis of the wii u's specs and power show they have little or no idea what they are talking about,simply saying that if the wii u has 1gig of memory means it's twice that of the xbox360 is a crap comparison,the memory in the 360 is ddr3 so if the wii u has 1 gig of ddr5[which is possible because it's fairly cheap]then its at least 4 times faster.the cpu is confirmed as a power pc7 but it will be customised for the wii u so the level of its performance can't be calculated simply by comparing it to what it's capable of doing in a pc. The gpu is a custom r770,designed for the wii u only,so the same rules apply.ati/nvidia can release a graphics card and a month later release a patch which can increase the performance by a significant amount.This chip is custom hardware and software so expect improvments on what the r770 can do in a pc. Consoles live or die on their exclusives so as far as nintendo ip's go just insert title here _______________.
