    Wii dev kit *pics*

    Engadget.com managed to get their hands on some images of the Wii dev kits. The images were sent in anonymously as feature a cool green/white design.

    This console really is tiny.

    What game designers get to make their games with (i dont exatly know what is different)

    They managed to keep it quite small considering the size of the wii (dev kits are always much bigger)

    I hate Photobucket

    A dev kit, or Developer Kit, is what game developers use to test their games. Developers got these slightly funky looking dev kits because at the time, the final version of Wii wasn't finished and also, they're made most likely with cheaper platic to keep costs low.

    Looking at the pictures, I sort of wish Nintendo had made the Reset and Power buttons one button, sort of like the PS2. That way you just tap it and it restarts and then if you want to actually turn it off, just hold down the button for a few seconds. The flap that hides the SYNC button and SD memory card slot could also have been made into a sliding flap, so there's no chance the hinge pops off.

    I don't really care that much, but less buttons = less moving parts that can break, which = fewer problems.

    I like the two-tone style aswell. Even if Ninendo doesn't release face plates, which they won't because then they'd be copying the Xbox 360, I'm sure online stores, like decalgirl.com, will.

    Gosh, I must say, I think the Wii is probably the best looking console I've ever seen; reminds me of the Mac mini and the Xbox 360. The Gamecube had a similar look, aswell. Nintendo seems to make their consoles look more and more like modern art or something.

    Nice find, iOn.

    It looks like someone spray painted that green face minutes before they shipped the things out. LoL. Who cares as long as 3rd party developers pull through for us this time around.

    not kidding


    Got mah Wii: 2/24/08

    I've missed more than 9000 shots in my career. I've lost almost 300 games. 26 times, I've been trusted to take the game winning shot and missed. I've failed over and over and over again in my life.

    And that is why I succeed.
