Wii U Guts

This is an interesting bit to share. Recently Nintendo posted an interview between Satoru Iwata, President of Nintendo, and the Wii U hardware development team. The interview is four pages long, and it details how they went about cramming roughly all the power of a current gen system onto one chip, and put it in a box not much bigger than the original Wii.

Even if you aren't a fan f Nintendo and what they do, you have to respect what they've done with the technology. I'm frankly amazed at how small they've made the CPU and GPU and then fit it all on just one module. This interview really shows how Nintendo believes in the saying Gunpei Yokoi came up with, "Lateral thinking with withered technology". ----Strife Out----
