I seriously hope that it's big like that because it's a Dev unit with a HD in it, like the first showcase Wiis (which had a red faceplate).
looking at the pic, i have to say, it doesnt look that large, it does look larger than the wii, but not by much. i am basing this by looking at the disk tray and trying to compare it to the depth of the wii u
It looks the same other than it's depth which is very big. o.o
I hope your right, judging from the pics that thing would fit on my unit, but only with no cables plugged into it, with power/video etc it's going to be hanging over the edge.
From my experience dev units that mimic the looks of retail units are larger, I owned an xbox (not 360) dev unit at one stage and it looked very similar to a standard crystal xbox, only slightly taller, I also remember one variation of the gamecube dev kit that had a huge slot protruding from the top for dev cartridges.
Unless my home console is the size of an entertainment center, I don't care.
It's not like it'll be moving much and they can fit most anywhere.
lol, I didn't know that the Wii "2" was called Wii "U", until today.
They might change the design later on...
It really doesn't look that big to me...
From the Nintendo E3 site
Approximately 1.8 inches tall, 6.8 inches wide and 10.5 inches long.
I don't consider that big, size of consoles is the least of my worries.
Not really a big deal to me since my entertainment center is huge but I guess its a big deal to some people?
If you can't fit the WiiU in your house, how can you possibly play motion controlled games?
The console isn't huge, but I might have problems with the controller. It looks kinda big in Iwata's hands
I could probably say the opposite. Seeing as how he's gripping it with just one hand (between his fingers) makes the controller look a lot smaller then what I was expecting. With the grips on the back of the device, it looks like it'll be pretty damn easy to use.
For comparison's sake:
Wii: (1.73 in) tall, (6.18 in) wide, and (8.48 in) long.
It's not that big of a difference.
Wow, I wonder why the WiiU in the OP's picture looks so long. That's weird.
it looks long but is not like i will be moving it o anything
It's a home console. It's not like we are gonna take it on a road trip.
I already have a place for it so its all good.
Looks tiny. I can't see it being bigger then a 360 or PS3, so who cares.
