Forums - Nintendo Discussion - Wii U Hardware downgrade rumors debunked by Shin'en

Nano Assault Developer Shin'en Debunked the rumors surrounding the WiiU hardware being downgraded when asked on twitter, here's what they said:

@ShinenGames did you have final spec when working on the machine thts was downgraded from previous devkits you were given

@VagelisVala Our devkits replacements got faster.

— Shin’en Multimedia (@ShinenGames) November 7, 2013

What's your take on this?



bet with ash3336 he wins if Super Mario 3D World sells less than Mario Sunshine during the first three years, I win if 3D World outsells Sunshine's first 3 years. Loser get sig controlled for 3 months (punishment might change)

Do you doubt the WiiU? Do you believe that it won't match the GC?

Then come and accept this bet

these guys want to be bought so badly that they do more PR than Nintendo themselves.

Nintendo should buy these guys and make them work on F-Zero

I think someone should have asked about the difference between when they first got the dev kits to how the final dev kits came to be. We know that the final dev kits included faster clock speeds than the time around e3 2012, but what about a year before that?

no matter what we all know Nintendo is forever doomedzzz


OP: I think downgrade would be stupid

We have a real dev with actual names claiming they got faster and some of you still want to prove them wrong and hope that anonymous dev on NeoGAF was right.

Why?

The rEVOLution is not being televised

The latter is more controversial and exciting to some.

I have no idea nor do I even care if the system was downgraded before release.  Would it have been stupid if it was needed....sure, we all know that the customers loved the whole RRoD and YLoD....right?



Stop hating and start playing.

These guys are a much more reliable source then a guy on Neogaf.

I like the idea of the Wii U being weaker so I'm just going to ignore them.
