    I am personally not a fan of the Wii, I have been adversely against the whole concept since it released. Probably not even going to give the new one a second thought.

    I haven't been following this too closely, but I think they are "rumored" pics of the (alleged) Project Cafe dev device versus a retail unit... if anyone can clarify I will +Rep ya!

    Since it will be only released in 2012 my guess is that is a developer unit / SKU. Remember the white Kinect?

    Also, Nintendo is pretty good to hide their "secrets"

    I'm guessing it's a mock-up more than a final design of the retail unit. The rumours say it'll look like a modernised cross between the NES and SNES which could be interesting. But apparently central to the rumours is backwards compatibility with wii games with the console acting as the sensor bar for wiimotes but this design doesn't have the width for that to be possible and on the other shot of the back (not posted) there's also no socket for the wii sensor bar.

    Also there's no ethernet port on the back which would be central to a dev unit for storage and debugging so I'm ruling out dev unit too.

    Here is another 'leaked' picture of the Project Cafe, looks the same just in white it seems.

    I still don't buy it, mind you I quite like it lol

    I just don't see nintendo going for system with no optical disc drive, they know if it goes download only retailers will give them very little support and it'd basically ruin any sort of backwards compatibility plans.

    There's the shot from the back I came across, but it just doesn't have the sort of connectivity I think this thing will have. Namely no power input or video / audio out, which I think would be kind of important lol

    Why are you saying there is no optical drive? I see a slit in the front that can very well be a new size optical drive, much how the gamecube was. keep in mind the Wii is hacked to all hell, so it's not surprising they may try another format of their own to combat it.

    Yeah I'd agree they might use a new format but I just don't see nintendo making a new console without the ability to play wii games. They've been backwards compatibility mad for years and that slit looks definitely too small to fit a full size dvd and I don't see ninty going for mini blu rays like the gamecubes mini dvds.

    But you can't really blame the medium for piracy it's more down to the console itself and its own security just look at the ds.
