Nintendo officially confirms full Wii U specs

Full Wii U Specs list my A**!! I'm sorry but:

CPU

* IBM PowerⓇ-based multi-core processor.

GPU

* AMD Radeon-based High Definition GPU.

For Miyamoto's sake! What is wrong with Nintendo!? Please salvage something from this insulting debacle and just tell us the magical words: Native 1080p Graphics at 60fps, Wii U is 2/3 times as powerfull as 360/PS3
Put our bloody fears about it's actual power to rest already!

Need release date, price, and ACTUAL memory and number of core specs. If this is not MORE powerful than the XBox or PS3 than it better be under $250.

This isn't full specs...It doesn't even say the speeds of the processor and how many cores it actually has, we knew already that it was going to be a multi cored processor and that it would be an AMD gpu.

you know whats really cool about the wii u? according to this "Full" :lol: spec list it doesnt need any Ram at all!

Only it's not. We still don't know technical details about the CPU, GPU, RAM and internal storage.
What I'm Playing Most: Ni No Kuni (PS3) / Titanfall (XBO) / Kerbal Space Program (Mac/PC) / Zelda: A Link Between Worlds (3DS)

These "specs" are nonsense.

This is not full, it is scarce.

Will it have a speaker in the controller? That was an over used feature in the Wii's library.

Them USB ports will come in handy after the sterling examples of their implementation on the Wii.
