    Bottom of the picture, shows the plug going into the socket with a green light.

    Engine Room with Cyan, watching him learn.
    HD gaming on a train could also be accomplished more efficiently with a Vita or ... (grittting teeth) tablet.

    It's still a cool thing that the WiiU supports semi-portability though. :)

    It's no longer HD when he's using the Gamepad anyway. But pretty cool, I've been thinking of doing things like this.

    It's an American unit, the Wii U isn't out in Japan yet. I wonder why he has two cables connected and not only one, the power cable is enough isn't it?
    75W which is what the Wii U drains should be just about what you're allowed to use on the shinkansen.

    He's in Japan riding the Shinkansen, and he's using an American Wii U unit is what I'm saying.

    It's hard to tell if it is in Japan, the writing on the seat looks like English.

    Edit: Although I've never been took much notice of bullet trains, not sure if they all have AC sockets or if that's Shinkansen only.

    According to the source, this guy is on the Nozomi Shinkansen.

    If you look at the original Japanese source there are more pictures and when it comes to a lot of train stations in Japan my experience is that they have things written in both English and Japanese for the most important information. Do notice that I said most important information, there's a lot of things that aren't translated.

    And AC sockets in trains aren't exactly exclusive to Japan, I know for a fact that a fair share of trains here in Sweden has them too (not the commuting ones, but that's besides the point).

    Those are pre-orders aren't they?

    It's still a US Wii U, look at the screens.

    Edit: they are preorders :/

    I've ordered from NY before. If they say its available, it is on sale.

    Their products are 100% Japanese region, as stated in their FAQ.

    But the description says preorder, released dec 8th.
    Not to mention the trouble they would get in for selling them early.

    Wow, with a portable LED TV he would even play a Playstation 3, and with a cell phone hotspot he would feel like he was in home. If you look at the pictures on source link, he is even eating some sort of sushi in a huge amount, so I guess his trip will be long.

    By the way. he should try this on my city:
    Warning: Spoilers inside!

    Engine room, learning
    There's only one cable, it's going back, then make a loop and go in front of the console.
