The same source that has been supposedly leaking Wii U dev kit details recently is back with more rumored info.

So, as promised, i'll give you an information concerning the Wii U ram.

This is heavily linked to my initial post

In the specific context where i gathered this information (read the Warning part here), i can say that the retail version of Wii U will absolutely not have less than 1 GB of ram. You can ditch this 760mb of ram rumor and never look back.

The exciting bonus: From what i know, i'm also pretty sure that it will not have just 1 GB.

This is reported in a Rev4 dev kit frame, so maybe the later versions will change even more the ram situation. But whatever the amount of memory current dev kits have, i'm talking of the retail version*

*Yes, dev kits often have a different amount of ram for debugging and other things, but even if it may be the case for Wii U, my sources are able to know how much ram the real Wii U is expected to have, for the moment ! You can guess how.

Edit: more hints a few posts below :P

More to come about the padlet, before the end of the week :)

il say 1.5 gb too

Should have 1GB of GDDR5 and maybe another 512MB of system RAM. Would be nice to have more but its not really needed for 1080P 60FPs on a game console. I would like to see 1GB of graphics and 2GB of system RAM but I doubt that will happen.

FUCK NO. It should least have 4 GB of RAM. And lots of internal storage. I love HDD and Nintendo can stop cutting corners.
wat
why would you need 4gb of ram in a console?
In a few years, early in the console's life, even 4gb will be considered puny.
Wat.

The PS3 (current gen) has only 256MB.

256MB -> 4GB sounds very far fetched.
Well at least 2GB? One of the biggest problems with the ps3 was the amount of ram. http://myona.com/2011/08/15/rage-development-is-limited-due-to-ps3-memory-id/
Sure, they work around it, but it needs more than 1GB for a next generation console, and yeah I after thinking about it 4GB seems like a lot for a console. :P
