Some more translations just came in... Looking good so far, but I'm still wondering how much "less powerful" it is than Xbox 8, and the lack of triggers is dissapointing. <_<

But on the bright side, UNREAL ENGINE 4 CONFIRMED! :o (maybe)

Just a matter of how the tech is optimized for the U. Specs alone don't tell the whole story I think. I just hope this console is enough future proof that it won't die off like the Wii did. So far the rumors/facts are pretty comforting, although it's clearly not world shattering powerful, which we kind of don't need.

Seems fake, since Nintendo said they wasn't going to announce the release date on e3. But this guys says it releases in Novemeber.

The 6770 can't run bf3 in even 30fps

>Xbox 8's graphic card will be more powerful than Wii-U's

Those two statements rather contradict eachother. How can they know it's more powerful if they haven't even started working with the console yet?

>No Analog R2/L2 unlike 360 controller/DualShock3

It definitely looks like there's two shoulder buttons there, and I can't think of a legit reason for them to get rid of a pair of shoulder buttons.

>This developed decided to leak these informations on Mario's castle because, by going in a more populated forum, he would have risked too much

He's already risked his job by posting them anyway. It'd have been easier for him to keep his mouth shut.


>Wii-U's launch price will 450$
>After what happened with 3DS' launch, however, Nintendo decided to lower Wii-U's price: the final one hasn't been confirmed yet, but apparently it will be about 350-400$

It will be $450, but it won't be $450? Really? :rolleyes:

Even though I can agree with a few of the statements given here (or at least slightly believe them) I'm calling this list fake. Just too many contradictory statements.

i think by analog triggers they mean pressure sensitive, not removing them completely

Errr...

The sync button is on the rear of that E3 '11 controller... so that square button on the front of the leaked version maybe isn't the sync, like some have suggested?

Edit: Some have also guessed its for switching screens, of course.

Posted 20 May 2012 - 06:26 AM

Some of these things he listed seems plausible, but some seems completely bull. The Xbox 8s GPU better than the Wii Us? Then why is Epic complaining about the Xbox 8 and PS4s specs while only praising the Wii U? AND A 6GHZ DEV KIT?!?!?! I don't know of any computer out there that runs that much, or if it even needs it.

That's pretty powerful. Maybe the Wii U is the beginning of Skynet... once it gets self-aware... and maybe Reggie is T-800?

Only Microsoft Products support DirectX unless he meant DX11 like effects. Also, 560MB is crazy for an OS, even if it can do loads of stuff even windows XP only takes up 350MB max on the pro version.

I think this is fake.

Keep in mind there is a difference between a video card in a PC and the same card in a console. Consoles have less overheads and are optimised regards the hardware. Not to mention every version of the same console is identical where as PC's vary in specs. You really can't compare the performance of a graphics card between a PC and a games console.

The 6770, it's about 5x the power of the Xbox's GPU anyway.

Seems fake, since Nintendo said they wasn't going to announce the release date on e3. But this guys says it releases in Novemeber.

The 6770 can't run bf3 in even 30fps


It can actually, if it wasn't running Fraps at the same time. not on ultra though.
