Nah, we just like Nintendo. As always this thread is a collection of all sorts of rumours, confirmations and all things regarding the Wii U. Join the discussion and have some fun! Be nice or else: Nintendo ninjas do exist.

[i][b]The Rumours:[/b][/i]

Nintendo is targeting, at a bare minimum, 1GB of RAM.
Nintendo is working to optimize popular third party engines.
The amount of RAM used for the OS is "surprising". Could change with optimization.

[B]Information on Nintendo Network:[/B]

[B]Wii U:[/B][LIST][*]User accounts: Wii U will have individual user accounts, rather than one system-wide account.[*]NFC: Near Field Communication ("touch" data transmission from accessories, credit cards, etc... sort of like QR/Streetpass combined) will be built-in.[*]Online: Miyamoto: "Network has to have a totally new concept to be different."[/LIST]
[B]General:[/B][LIST][*]Third parties: Several new, previously unconsidered alliances/partnerships with third parties.[*]Communities: You haven't seen the last of them![*]Retail title downloads: 3DS and Wii U both support digital download of retail titles, but... they still aren't quite sure how to implement it just yet.[*]Item billing: "We should not decline third parties if they want to offer item billing" (paying to unlock content).[*]DLC: Still planning to offer DLC (possibly talking about their own software), but needs more time to complete its feasibility study on the market and its needs.[*]More sharing: "Digital will include user to user communications and sharing" (More social networking integration? More Swapnote-like apps? More emphasis on Streetpass/Spotpass?).[*]Better-paced software + DLC: Nintendo has learnt that it shouldn't have stagnant periods between software launches: can fill the gap, and DLC can extend the life of a title.[*]Asia: Planning products for Asia, local partners (WiiQue U?) yet to be announced; still issues of copyright.[*]Miyamoto still around, Iwata angry at Wired. "Miyamoto is saying his basic work is to create a big hit."[/LIST]

There's something special about a new Nintendo console's unveiling. Makes me feel like a kid again.

AzaK 04-11-2012 11:33 PM

Reposting cause it was on last page and is already forgotten and will be imminently locked:

<snip>
Random question of madness relating to this "hybrid" Wii U tech that's been speculated about. Is it possible there's an APU or some OpenCL capable shit in there as well? I'd imagine someone here would have mentioned it already if there was. Especially given all the Orbis talk etc.

Second, less random question: What benefit does adding some extra dedicated silicon for a particular job give us (Let's say, lighting)? I thought shaders were damned optimal and with latency hiding etc they're hitting about 1cycle anyway? I hope the only benefit isn't something like cost or heat and it's actually performance.
</snip>

Sorry for spammage.

26th US time so I think we'll get info on the 27th US.

I'd like to share a revelation that I've had during my time here. It came to me when I tried to classify your species and I realized that you're not actually gamers. Every gamer on this planet instinctively develops a natural equilibrium with the game industry but you gaffers do not. You create new threads that multiply and multiply until the vbulletin post cap is consumed and the only way you can survive is to spread to another thread. There is another organism on this planet that follows the same pattern. Do you know what it is? A virus. Wii-U threads are a disease, a cancer of this planet. You're a plague and the Wii-U itself is the cure.
