    Sup Guys!;

    I was just browsing, and i found that in the "Unnamed Site", someone is selling a "WII U Development Console Cat-R and Cat Dev" I'm not quite sure what can be accomplished with this, or if anyone is interested.
    Here are some of the photos that are on the listing, looks pretty sweet actually.

    Tough illegal, would this be useful on the creation or research of new homebrew?

    Deleting your post seems good.

    I'm pretty sure "Tough illegal" is what Trump wants to keep out.
    Not really homebrew so on to the next topic.

    I see, so its someone from Gbatemp who is selling it i guess o-o;
    but since its no help for homebrew research then mods can close this.

    awwww man, this could be good for me since I am always rambling on about my enthusiasm to properly develop for a console like this! :P

    However, something definitely feels shady about it. I ain't taking any risks, even if it is a proper devkit for sale! ;)

    Same, i also remember when someone was selling on ebay a Project Durango from Microsoft, and now this. still 500 is not that much, as voxel studio said, its kinda shady, unless they are that cheap.

    Nah, devkits can run at least $1000 if not more from what I've heard.

    Oh look a PC with XBOX internals

    Just kidding lol. I do find it funny that it looks like Microsoft just kind of pulled a PC case off of their production line and started throwing hardware into it

    If its what I think it was it wasn't an official dev kit(pic wasn't loading for me). It was one someone made from stuff they stole from Ms. They ended up going to jail as they messed with the wrong people. I will see if I can find the info, its fairly amusing how people with so much knowledge could be so dumb


    Found it
